Cafe Society invited some of our favorite restaurants and food trucks to share samples at Dish, September 9 at Ninth Street Historic Park. Here's what they'll be serving:
What are you serving at Dish? We'll be serving the Oh Henrys, a peanut butter puffed-rice treat with a layer of chocolate on top. I chose this because it's something I grew up with, plus it's simple, which is how we like to do things.
Before there was molecular gastronomy, before Rachael Ray and Bobby Flay hijacked the Food Network, and before Anthony Bourdain penned Kitchen Confidential, there was Dish (formerly Menu Affair), Westword's annual culinary bash that extols the city's best bites, wine sips, suds and sounds. This year's Dish, slated for Friday, September 9, at Ninth Street Historic Park (that's a new venue), features thirty restaurants and food trucks all invited to participate by Cafe Society scribes, along with such liquid assets as beer and wine, along with a celebration of the Art of the Cocktail, and live music from Air Dubai, Rachel Platten and Robert Eldridge.
General admission tickets are $35 in advance and $50 at the door; VIP tix, which include a food sampling reception and complimentary beer, wine or cocktails, are $75 in advance and $100 at the gate. For more info or to snag your tickets, go to www.brownpapertickets.com/event/193586.
