NYCWFF: Tacos and Tequila and "Rock of Ages"
Last night's Tacos and Tequila event, hosted by Bobby Flay, went down over at Pier 92 on the West Side Highway and was packed with killer tacos, celeb chefs and more. Among our favorite bites were Manzanilla's oxtail taco with mushrooms, Lee Anne Wong's short rib taco and Salvation Taco's headcheese offering. Celeb chefs spotted included Flay, Giada de Laurentiis, Jonathan Waxman (Top Chef Masters), Rick Bayless, the Big Gay Ice Cream guys (yes, they made a taco too) and more. Olmeca Altos provided the tequila for the event, and the Borgata provided roulette and blackjack tables. Check out photos below.
Shortly after Tacos and Tequila, we took a brief trip to Flavor Town by popping into the Rock of Ages event at Guy's American Kitchen & Bar in Times Square. Fieri greeted us personally at the door (as he did with every guest) while an '80s band wailed in the background. Drinks involving whipped-cream vodka were handed out at the door, as well as signature grub from Mr. Fieri.
