What You Missed at the Absinthe Group’s James Beard House Dinner in New York

A nicoise salad-esque canapé.

Last night, Absinthe chef Adam Keough, Boxing Room chef Justin Simoneaux, and pastry chef Bill Corbett of the Absinthe Group were in New York City along with Comstock Saloon barman Jeff Hollinger and Absinthe bartender Matt Conway serving up a special San Francisco Brasserie dinner at the James Beard House. Take a look at our slideshow of the cocktail reception and dinner, and observe some hometown chefs showing some New Yorkers how we do things here.

Also, by the way, the previous night, Hollinger and Conway were guest bartending at PDT in the East Village, but we did not dispatch a photographer for that.

Consider this your food porn for the weekend.
