Elizabeth Daniels 7/10
On Wednesday night, 100 Eater readers alighted upon the stunning, beachside Nobu Malibu for an exclusive evening of delicious food, spirits, and merriment. Each table was equipped with a suite of Canon PowerShot cameras to record what was to follow. First, dinner: ribeye with yuzu truffle butter, black cod butter lettuce, spicy tuna crispy rice, ethereal sushi and more, all prepared by famed chef Gregorio Stephenson. And, just as dessert arrived, surprise: hit funk outfit The Stepkids ambushed guests with an unannounced performance.
At that moment, as the band rocked, lenses clicked, wine glasses clinked, and the Pacific murmured in the background, all was in balance in the universe. A huge thanks to our friends at Canon, chef Stephenson, the fine folks at Nobu Malibu, and The Stepkids (catch them on tour this summer). Check out the gallery above for some choice photos, and stay tuned for the Canon Be Ready video series for an in-depth look at the evening's food, music and everything in between.
