Gambit's Food Revue

A mashup of a food festival Wednesday, Feb. 16, at City Park's Pavilion of the Two Sisters


Gambit readers' culinary tastes are all over the place, quite literally — food trucks, white-tablecloth joints, po-boy shops, takeout, festival food, hot dogs, haute cuisine and sandwiches, sandwiches everywhere. That eclectic, democratic spirit toward eating is the driving force behind the inaugural Gambit Food Revue: a mashup of a food festival we're throwing Wednesday, Feb. 16, at City Park's Pavilion of the Two Sisters. While some other food events have tended to concentrate either on high-end restaurants or just snacks, we've invited every establishment that was reviewed by Gambit food writer Ian McNulty during 2010 and the end of 2009. The food lineup itself is still evolving, but this might give you an idea of the variety: Paella; cochon de lait po-boys; Gorgonzola cheesecake; curried pumpkin soup; caviar pie; octopus carpaccio; a root beer-glazed ham-and-cheese sandwich; crawfish Diablo; truffled shrimp; barbecued sliders; homemade ice cream; free beer and wine; and about 25 more dishes. (All attendees must be 21 or older.) The Food Revue sold out as we were going to press, but we're already planning to do it next year. — Kevin Allman
