Plate by Plate 2014

Project by Project’s Plate by Plate at the Peterson Auto Museum in Los Angeles.

Plate by Plate 2014!  This is one of my favorite food events – been going regularly since before this blog existed, but took the last few years off.

The Petersen Auto Museum was the perfect spot to watch chefs do their thing amongst vintage cars…

…and outside, with a view of the city.

Food, of course, was the focus.

Discovered a lot of new (to me) places – Petty Cash (above) and Maison Akira…

…Little Bear…

DSCN5137

…Lexington Social House…

DSCN5146

…Wood and Vine…

DSCN5024

…The Parks Finest…

…and Bistro LQ – all have been on my radar, and did not disappoint.

Old favorites like Union, Starry Kitchen, and Republique were there…

…and a place I only recently discovered – Superba Food + Bread!

They were responsible for the Arctic Char (above) and this Tiramisu dish…

…of course, I was all over the desserts.  My buddies at Fluff Ice were there, Short Cake was representing with an entire buffet, and Chef Sally fed my Filipino-loving Sweet Tooth with Halo Halo…

…and Ube Coconut Eclair.

Cafe Dulce had donuts…

…and so did The Church Key – I think I got half the crowd to eat this dish!  It was probably my favorite.

Sadly, those melt-in-your-mouth babies didn’t win “Best Dish” of the evening – I actually missed the restaurant who did (Scratch Bar).  Abe’s vote went to Patina for their “Vegan Chicharrons” (made from puffed rice/coconut)…

…he didn’t have a crazy amount to eat, but Chef Ricardo Zarate was kind enough to make him a veggie version of this sandwich.

(My favorite vegetarian also drank a number of Kirin Frozen Beers too.)

We had a blast with our friends (more pix on Instagram)!  Thanks for another great year, PbP – and all the incredible work you do.

    Awwww! Wish I was there! It would have been an awesome experience with all those yummy and delicious foods! Glad you liked the Halo-halo coz some find it very ordinary.

    Speaking of Filipino delicacies, when you get a chance, you should try (if you haven’t) the bibingka.

        Did you try the cornbread bibingka at The Park’s Finest’s table at PbP? I’m sure it’s not traditional, but it was kind of a cross between cornbread and bread pudding.
