New Taste of the UWS, Comfort Classics
 
A parking lot on the UWS was transformed into an elegant tented tasting area complete with a sophisticated lounge area of all white leather sofas. Alan Richman of Man vs Food is hosting the Comfort Classics portion of the New Taste of the Upper West Side.

The gang from Momofuku Milk Bar was the cutest. One of the girls was such an Alan Richman fan that she brought him dessert.

The Tito’s Handmade Vodka reps were awesome. For each drink, they would slap on a mint leaf to release the oils.

Did the mint leaf make a difference ? Not at first, my eyes actually got teary because some essence of the mint got into my eye. After you let the mint settle into your drink, yes, the mint flavor gave the vodka an added layer of freshness.

The Winner of the Night for the best Comfort Classic bite: 5 Napkin Burger !! It’s well deserved. At first, I was sure that Virgil BBQ would win until I tasted this burger. What set this burger apart was the tangy asian slaw which balanced the richness of the moist beef patty.

As dusk turned into night, the disco lights went up and the DJ started to rock some dance tunes.
