NYC Wine & Food Festival: BACON & BLUES

The Food Network NYC Wine & Food Festival Thrillist's Bacon & Blues presented by Canadian Club hosted by Tyler Florence kicked off the weekends events at The Standard Hotel in the Meat Packing District in New York City. There was Bacon and there was Blues! Restaurants such as Gansevoort 69 served Pork Butt sliders with Candied Bacon, Areole had Bacon and Black Truffle Potato au Gratin, The Libertine made Hazelnut Crusted Smoked Pork Belly, and Bacon Wrapped Quail Dogs from Braeburn.

The best and most creative way bacon was incorporated into food was in the sweets department by 675 Bar. Chocolate Covered Bacon anyone? How about bacon glazed doughnuts?

The party started indoors and then ventured outdoors to the terrace at the Standard Hotel where people reveled the evenings cocktails of Canadian Club Classic Caesar which was hot and tart, in a good way. CC 12th & Soda with Lemon and CC Reserve 10 and Ginger Ale. All while the band played tirelessly. The Crooners where quite entertaining!
