Party at SD26

SD26 is a brand-spanking new boite on Madison Square Park, and last night they (along with Eater) hosted a kickoff party for the New York City Food and Wine Festival.  The space is pretty luxurious, most notably this amazing crystal curtain designed by the same group who did the crystal curtain at last year’s Oscars.  It was a family affair of sorts, as Tony May, the owner, flew in a gaggle of awesome chefs from Italy (the Michelin-star types) to cook.  Each chef contributed a special dish, like a creamy risotto with balsamico or a super fresh tuna tartare.  In true Italian party style, everyone ended up in the (huge and gorgeous) kitchen, eating family style and telling stories.  It was the perfect commencement to the annual food festival.
