Open wide: Entrance to the tent

I'll admit that when I first walked into the New York Wine and Food Festival's Grand Tasting this Saturday, my first thought was: "Oh, it's the Fancy Food Show with better PR." But as I walked around I realized how wrong I was—it's true that there were random supermarket-ish samples à la the Fancy Food Show, but there was also tons of booze–wine, sake, beer and cocktails. Not only that, but some very good chefs were there, offering samples of some very good food.

The highlights, as I ate them:
