My friend and I had the pleasure of checking out AGO First Thursday this week. The one thing I was particularly impressed by was the quality of food that they offer. They have these food stations set up right by the entrance, and considering the event started around 7pm, everyone who came at the opening hour was hungry and appreciated the munchies!
We ordered the porchetta sandwiches with chili-garlic fried rapini, which was delicious and a real steal at $5! The only suggestion I would offer is to toast the porchette. It's such a shame to have a cold bun served with a gourmet sandwich.
We ordered a caramel one and a chocolate one, and they were both delicious! Light and fluffy like a croissant, but sweet and satisfying like a donut.
After washing down our meal with beer and wine, we got to toured around the gallery a bit. I wasn't particularly impressed by the live exhibits, and as the gallery closed off 3 out of the 5 floors, there was not much to see...
