At 11:00pm, Six Foot Nurse took the stage and got the party started by playing some rock ‘n roll classics. Following was Bon Appetit restaurant editor Andrew Knowlton welcoming guests and introducing the night’s host, Joe Bastianich. Bastianich, restaurateur, winemaker and rock and roller discussed his philosophy on how he pairs the great wines of the world with the greatest music of all time. Accompanied by Scott Ian of Anthrax and the electrifying band Six Foot Nurse, Bastianich discussed the evening’s line-up and how he would take guests and chefs on a synesthetic exploration of explosive tunes from Led Zeppelin and The Beatles, asking them to listen with their palates and taste with their ears.
