But let’s face it; we were there for the food. Guest chefs included Rick Bayless, Paul Kahan, Giuseppe Tentori and Jose Garces. Out favorite dish of the night came from Food Network’s “Sandwich King” Jeff Mauro who served his famous Patty Wheel with griddled ground shortrib and sirloin on marble rye with caramelized onions and shishito peppers as well as white American cheese and his signature 18,000 Island Dressing with a side of crispy jalapeños. We chased it with Hedy Goldsmith’s, of Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink, take on a double-stuffed Oreo.
