Gays are known for having great taste, though that usually applies to things like fashion and decorating. But at the 26th annual Garden Party, it's all about the food. More than 40 restaurants, bakeries, caterers, and big-name food celebs, like David Pasternack (Esca), Daniel Angerer (Klee Brasserie), and Lisa Fernandes from Season 4 of Top Chef, will be supplying the grub and photo-ops at this benefit for the LGBT Center, which serves as its official kickoff to Pride Week. Gourmet editor-in-chief Ruth Reichl is the mistress of ceremonies.
