Incanto

San Francisco's Chris Cosentino created a beef tartar with "five shades of hay," 50 Shades of Grey inspired, we imagine. Instead of bondage, though, we just get five preparations of wheat.

Christina Tosi flew out with plenty of cake truffles to go around. The most festive: birthday cake truffles, obvi.

Antique Taco

For best comfort food, however, Portland favorite Nong's served their signature chicken and rice, wrapped in butcher paper.
