I don't know about you but I will be glued to the television screen tonight to watch the Grammy awards, if only to see if Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr perform together for the first time in decades! 
Being who I am, I will be watching with cocktails and a little nosh.

So I did a little research and found out what they're serving to the Grammy nominees, officials, presenters and hangers-on. Here is the inside scoop on what the glitterati will be eating and drinking at the 56th Grammy Awards tonight:

At the Levy Restaurants and Staples Center executive chef Joseph Martin will be serving Grammy guests:

Braised Short Ribs
Ahi Tuna Sandwiches
Peking Duo Sandwiches

Sweet Chili Chicken Salad, made with Asian pears, toasted sesame seeds, chili-spiced cashews garnished with black and watermelon radishes and drizzled with honey-ginger dressing.

Atlantic Wild Salmon, cooked on charred cedar planks, gemstone potato salad and skewers of chicken tikka served over pistachio rice and garnished with mango-red pepper chutney.

Nicoise Salad, made with grilled artichokes and seared ahi tuna, and deviled eggs with candy bacon.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries. 

The official cocktail? The GRAMMY OLD FASHIONED featuring a miniature Grammy Award Ice Sculpture re-frozen inside a sphere of clear ice and a Grey Goose Vodka Martini rimmed with Gold!

Muddle the cherries and brown sugar in the bottom of an old fashioned glass. Add the whiskey, bitters and a large ice cube then stir thoroughly. Garnish with the candied bacon and the orange zest.
