Our first Plate by Plate experience brought us to the majestic Vibiana in downtown Los Angeles. This year, Plate by Plate teamed up with East West Players and created a great evening filled with outstanding food, cocktails, entertainment and much more.
The restaurants in attendance weren’t just any restaurants, they were the premier dining destinations throughout Los Angeles. Top chefs like Walter Manzke, Gavin Mills, Ricardo Zarate, and Neal Fraser were all representing their restaurants and new ventures. When you are enjoying such incredible food, there is only one other thing you need to make it complete and great libations like Ketel One, Bombay Sapphire and The Bruery were all there to make it a solid night.
Food festivals are becoming a very popular event these days and most are becoming very similar. Plate by Plate brings a more elegant approach to their event, especially since it is being held at Vibiana. The great night was solidified when a photo booth which included a gold toilet was gladly letting all the attendees take incredible pictures alongside of it.
A cocktail competition that included Top Chef alum Marcel Vigneron was the highlight of the evening which brought out heavy hitters in the mixology world like Matthew Biancello to guest judge the drinks.
Restaurants on hand included Seoul Sausage Co., Circa, Paiche, Park’s Finest and more.
Local artists were creating beautiful paintings and chalk art throughout the night.
