This photo of Fort Defiance’s table at last night’s Village Voice Choice Eats event (after it was cleared of 732 deviled eggs with pickled mustard seeds and smoked black peppers) is pretty indicative of how the Über tasting went down. Cheeky, Dirt Candy, Spot, and many others were cleaned out even earlier than that, and though Sara Jenkins of Porchetta may have fed 300 hungry marines, no way was she making it to 9 p.m. here.
This must’ve rankled people who waited an hour in line, but the couple sucking face near Purple Yam’s sliders didn’t seem to mind. After all, it was all for a good cause — namely, feeding bloggers with content! Check out coverage below, starting with word from Eating in Translation that Café Glechik will open a Sheepshead Bay location in two weeks, and An Choi will expand next door.
By the way, if you’re still bummed about missing Porchetta, Motorino, Luke’s Lobster, Max and the like, they’ll all be back in action (along with many others) during the Food Bank for New York City’s Time Out for Hunger.
