OutFront on the town at Bon Appétit's 2014 Hot Ten Party

Thursday night Bon Appétit hosted their annual Hot Ten Party in midtown Manhattan's Gotham West Market. The mouthwatering fete featured the magazine's 10 Best New Restaurants for 2014 and their respective chefs were flown in from across the country for the occasion.

The affair coincided with New York Fashion Week and was hands down one of the best parties of the year. The market's modern open kitchens played second fiddle to endless delights served straight out of the oven by handsome waiters (cough male models) and the chefs themselves.

The room was a fantasy of food; think trays of egg, salmon, caviar and crispy onions and tables of mini lemon souffle cakes with fresh Oregon Huckleberries. Drinks were flowing at indoor and outdoor open bars but elderberry and cucumber martinis stole the show. There was even a solid live folksy rock band and a photo booth complete with a rainbow of Maybelline lipstick favors to polish your pout.

If you're thinking about getting married next year, just elope and get yourself invited to the Hot Ten Party. It will be like having a Fall wedding only with far better food and fancier guests.

Undercover animal abuse videos could soon be illegal

Wake County, North Carolina – Chickens buried alive. Pigs so sick that their intestines hang out of their bodies. These are some of the grisly scenes from videos taken by animal rights activists who went undercover at farms that produce food destined for dinner tables.

It’s a tactic animal rights activists have used for years, going undercover at slaughterhouses and factory farms to document squalid conditions, abuse and neglect. Their videos have gone mainstream and led to criminal charges, fines and even the largest meat recall in American history.

But undercover video is under attack and with it, activists argue, their ability to expose animal abuses that can make meat dangerous to eat.
