As promised, we now bring you some food porn from last night's collaborative dinner with State Bird Provisions chefs Stuart Brioza and Nicole Krasinski, and Meadowood chef Christopher Kostow, at Day Four of Meadowood's Twelve Days of Christmas. As Brioza tells the Scoop today, it was good to get back to his fine-dining roots for a night, where he was again getting to do "composed dishes that work in a sense of flavor where you build from lightness to heaviness." (Brioza and Krasinski for years ran the kitchen at Rubicon, but have kept things pretty casual at State Bird, wish bold and inventive small plates.) The photo evidence just went up on Facebook, so please enjoy. [Earlier slideshow]
