On Saturday, September 8, the ninth annual Meatopia Festival presented by Whole Foods took place at Randall's Island Park. The theme for Meatopia 2012 was "City of Meat," where groups of nearly 40 chefs were stationed in different "neighborhoods" around the park, from Carcass Hill to Offalwood. Chefs from all over the world cooked up a variety of dishes, including scrambled brains and a true fan-favorite, brisket from Franklin's Barbecue.

We tried to hit up every possible neighborhood and chef but at some point (approximately fifteen meals in) it was time to wave the white flag. Check out all the deliciousness here.
