Tacos and Tequila Is One Tasty Good Time

Although I enjoyed Meatball Madness and the tasting tent, my favorite event at the New York City Wine and Food Festival was Saturday night's party, Tacos and Tequila, hosted by Bobby Flay. It could be that I much prefer tacos to meatballs, or the fact that hard liquor was served, but this shindig was fabulous.

I also had some fun celebrity chef sightings: I bumped into Anne Burrell at the bar, watched as Guy Fieri and his entourage arrived at the space and scoped out the scene, and met the lovely Claire Robinson in person. There were so many scrumptious tacos that it was hard to select one as a favorite, but I really enjoyed Sue Torres' taco, a smoked fish in a crunchy shell.

It was very crowded.

A beautiful display of fried pig skin.

Chef Alex Guarnaschelli hard at work.

The names of the restaurants were placed on mirrors.

Alex's meaty taco was juicy and succulent.
