Scenes from Last Night's Dine About Town Kickoff Party
Yes, there was pig belly, but you had to wait for that one-ounce wine pour. Less than half an hour into last night's sold-out Dine About Town launch party under the Westfield San Francisco Centre dome, the lines for wine were 18 to 20 deep. The food was for the most part, meat-centric. Chouchou won the prize for variety (three offerings); Fish & Farm's pork belly and Luce's beef cheek slider tied for best meaty delight. Other restaurants dishing it out included CafĂ© Andree, Chez Papa Resto, Lark Creek Steak, and Urban Tavern. Dine About Town starts tomorrow; check out Jonathan Kauffman's advice for negotiating the options. Additional chef shots after the jump.
