To celebrate its millionth post, Foodbuzz threw a bash fit for a millionaire on Tuesday, 12 May 2009, at davidburke townhouse on Manhattan's East Side. Even this old fresser was not prepared for the unending barrage of delights with which I was besieged. Never has my appetite been so helplessly overpowered.
If David Burke, one of this year's inductees into the James Beard Foundation's Who’s Who of Food and Beverage in America and 2009 chef/innovator honoree by the Nation's Restaurant News MenuMasters was out to impress a bunch of foodists, he surely succeeded. Chef Sylvain Delpique's variety of gustatory masterpieces—highlighted by mouthwatering hors d'œuvre—provided a culinary version of Plato's Retreat. Needless to say, it was a marvelous evening of merrymaking with my fellow food bloggers. Thanks a million, Foodbuzz!
