Tonight I had the privilege of attending a cocktail party hosted by FoodBuzz at David Burke Townhouse. Score! David Burke's food is siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiick, people, and probably some of the most artistic I've ever encountered. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves, though I have to admit that they are not my best effort, as I was lazy and used my phone to take them.
Prosecco and a dumpling of meaty mcmeatyness
Huge spread of sushi/sashimi/maki
TONS of fresh lobster claws, oysters, crab, etc. (I made a valiant effort at lobster but remain unswayed...except for the lobster flan/custard thingie I tasted - amazing)
Adorable cinnamon bun
Fresh lychee martinis
Serious dessert juggling
Cheesecake lollipop, one of David Burke's signature treats
Me double-fisting desserts one-handed long enough to snap a wonky pic...this was a chocolate cheesecake lollipop and butterscotch pannacotta, I believe.
I was kind of in a funk when I arrived at this party, but I will admit that it cheered me up to have some incredible food and spend more time with some quality NYC bloggers (Missy, Ashley, Sarah, Emily, Vani...just to name a few - check their blogs for much better recaps than mine!). There were even a few paps snapping pictures of us! It's a glamorous life I lead...
Not to mention the fact that while no one wants to turn down free food, I would have been truly INSANE not to jump at the opportunity to try David Burke's itty bitty delicacies. Staying true to myself, most of those itty bitties were desserts, but hey this ain't Soap & Lobster, is it?
