Comfort food may be in, but that doesn't mean creative presentation is out. Tentation added a different look to the traditional foods served at the Outrageous Contemporary Decorative Arts from Britain auction at Sotheby's, sponsored by the Savoy Group, Mini Cooper by BMW and Burberry.

For drinks, guests visited a recreation of the Blue Bar, a British watering spot in one of the the Savoy Group's hotels. The food combined British tradition and comfort with stylish presentation. Fish and chips were served in buckets lined with the London Times. Neon blue sushi circulated on a 3-D metallic platter, while mini-hamburgers were served on a tray lined with chicken wire.
