SBWFF 2011: Dim Sum & Disco, Dancing and Bites

When we arrived at Dim Sum & Disco at The Setai last night, guests lined up around the restaurant's open kitchen to taste the small bites prepared for the evening, but as the clock ticked past midnight the party moved to courtyard where people danced to '70s tunes and sipped cocktails.

While we heard that the party was better last year, there were a few noteworthy bites. The Setai's chef, David Werly, prepared something like a mini-parfait inside an egg shell, except there were no sweets here. Caramelized eel was topped with a lychee and foie gras foam and sprinkled with jasmine flowers. His goat cheese and roasted beet salad served inside a clear, plastic sphere made quite an impression.


Other favorites were chef Joe Ng's (of Red Farm in New York) shrimp

dumpling, Joseph Maynard's (Asia de Cuba) mango pudding cones and the

bulgogi tacos by our own Richard Hales, of Sakaya Kitchen.

The celebs and personalities were probably partying elsewhere but Martha

Stewart made a quick stop at the party after hosting Let Them Eat Cake.
