It was another fantastic display of the very best in the culinary world at Star Chef's International Congress. This years event was held at the new Brooklyn Expo Center out in Greenpoint and every day was jam packed with incredible cooking displays, wine tastings and some of the best food from all over then world. Day One was all about hearty fare with the EAT@ICC Southern Showcase.
Brain Dunsmoor took time off from his new project Hatchet Hall in L.A. to whip up some Nantucket Bay Scallops with grits, bacon, mushroom and sherry.

Midtown got another great lunch option this Fall with the addition of Luke's Lobster. Located in between 43rd and 44th street, this location has a long spacious interior complete with picnic style seating and a big patio in back perfect for catching a little afternoon sun.

I ordered from the lunch specials which came with choice of soup or salad and sandwich. The salad was simple greens dressed with a little olive oil and pepper followed by a crisp Mozzarella and Prosciutto Panini.
For the low price of $9 this was a fantastic lunch deal. The sandwich was quite perfect...loaded with lots of fresh sliced prosciutto, creamy mozzarella cheese, chopped arugula and tomato. It was homey and rustic just like the restaurant itself.

I love the cake truffles from Momofuku Milk Bar. The Birthday Cake is a standard but the other two flavors constantly change like the classic Banana Cake truffle I was absolutely obsessed with, the Beer & Pretzel truffle that was way to short lived (seriously) and now the Chocolate Chip Cake truffle.
I don't usually love fruit with chocolate but in this case it really works. I was already eating a second one before I realized I had gone back into the bag! This flavor's only around for a few more weeks. November 1st the ingredients change again so get it while you can.
