Vizcaya's Evening Under The Stars Leaves Us Hungry

All in all, the culinary aspect of the evening seemed disorganized. Booths for Area 31 and Red were depleted and completely broken down by 9 p.m. At the El Scorpion stand, the guacamole was delicious, however, the chips strewn across the tablecloth struck Short Order as messy and unhygienic.
Still serving chow mid-way into the party were Wish (gazpacho soup), Gibraltar (duck confit crepe with Thai herb salad and sour ginger glaze) and Sawa (falafel sliders with truffle tahini sauce). The biggest line of the night, however, was at the CrepeMaker booth, where French-style crepes were being prepared from scratch.
Most of the dressed-up socialite crowd seemed too busy mingling to notice the dearth of edibles. But for $65 a ticket ($85 for non-members) Short Order thinks the fact that the food ran out so early is inexcusable. Hopefully, they'll have more grub next year.
