Beef and Chive Salad

From Inaki Aizpitarte (Le Chateaubriand) and James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem). The best bite of the night--seared beef with a crunchy dressing including fresh chives and coriander seeds.

"Warning: Tastes Like Chicken" Tofu (L) and Sock-It-To-Fried Chicken (R)

From Dante Gonzales (Dante Fried Chicken) and Muhsinah. Both the fried tofu and fried chicken were exceptionally crunchy and moist. Overheard: Wylie Dufresne praising the texture of the fried tofu. It was that good.

James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem) has found his true calling. He and Wylie chatted several times throughout the night, as they're both fans of each other's work.
