TV Diner Platinum Plate Gala
Boston Wine Expo

Scenes from the Gala

The TV Diner Platinum Plate Gala was a fun event. Amazing people watching (e.g., women of a certain age showing lots of skin and sequins), good food, and fun music. But as with most of those events, it was pretty crowded, which meant long lines at the bar and tasting stations, and a need to juggle your food and drink. I'm glad we went, but probably wouldn't do it again.

What amazed me most was the amount of beef on display. Short ribs in particular. I'd say half the food vendors had some version of beef short ribs as their signature dish. Don't know if it's the cold weather, a down-economy (which tends to elevate comfort foods), or just good prices on beef short ribs, but everybody was offering it up. Not a good night for any vegetarians in the house!

But there were also some tasty tuna plates available (surprisingly, my favorite was the Teriyaki Ahi Tuna Wanton from Not Your Average Joe's), a couple of duck options, pork sliders, Caesar salad, pasta, and plenty of desserts (my favorite being Pete & Gerry's Heirloom Egg Custard with maple walnut topping).
