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 Café 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.
