Anyone going to Wolfgang Puck's wine and food festival on Sept 16th?
Just curious whether anyone is going or went last year. Thoughts?
I go every year - actually work for the event in exchange for admission.
The thing is fantastic and is bordering on debauchery. You will get full, so don't eat all of anything unless it is fantastic. I really recommend getting there right at 6 since it gets crowded.
Wolfgang Puck always pulls out some great stuff for his restaurant stations. His Kobe cheesesteak sandwich was my favorite last year.
Batali's Salumi is also amazing. Nobu's sushi station is a great way to break up all of the heavy dishes.
I have found the Mesa Grill and Hitching Post food to be comparatively weak.
There are quite a few new chefs participating this year and I am excited to try their fare - especially Prudhomme, Charles Phan and Michael Mina
Lots of the best wines run out by the end of the evening, so scope out the stuff you want to try early.
Hope that helps.
i LOVED the kobe cheesesteak sandwich!!!! wished i could find it at one of pucks places since, so tastey!!! mmm
