On Monday night, June 11th, 100 lucky Eater readers gathered at the Adams Morgan hotspot Mintwood Place in celebration of the launch of CityEats, the newest online destination for restaurant reservations. iPads were on-site for guests to book tables directly through CityEats, while a crew of celebrated chefs turned out an exclusive tasting. Some highlights? Beef cheek sliders from Tim Ma (Maple Ave); chilled spring Irish pea soup from Ryan Miller (Virtue Feed & Grain); braised lamb shank sliders from Jeremy Kermisch (Granville Moore's); Todd Gray's (Equinox) watermelon and arugula salad; and bacon & onion flammekueche from Mintwood Place's own Cedric Maupillier.
I had the pleasure of photographing the event and tasting some of the delicious food.
