Congrats to all the chefs for putting on a great show and bringing some seriously delicious bites to Brooklyn on Sunday. It was a pleasure on Friday visiting those food producers in the Pfizer building, hitting up The Ides, and then packing into a bus with you and downing all that Crif Dogs, Mile End, Di Fara’s, Yun Nan Flavour Snack and of course… Brooklyn beer. We hope you didn’t mind having your picture taken as you stuffed your face…
