Slideshow SLIDESHOW: 12 Best Bites at The Art of the Taco

[Photos: Maggie Hoffman]

Tacos were all dressed up for The Art of the Taco, hosted by Bobby Flay, at the New York City Wine and Food Festival. More than 30 chefs served every imaginable take on the taco: some more traditional (chorizo in corn tortillas), some much less so (brisket and bone marrow on soft roti).

While plenty of entries couldn't really be called tacos, that didn't stop them from being delicious. Those that didn't use tortillas as a base tended to be some of the best, as there's nothing worse than a sad tortilla—and these chefs used flatbreads or other taco "shells' they knew best. Those that did traditional tacos well were those with already established taco cred: Hecho en Dumbo and Toloache were some of our favorites of the night.

Check out twelve great bites, from chorizo to chocolate and more.
