While many spend Met Monday anticipating which of their favorite celebrities will ascend the Met's steps and how designers will interpret the year's theme, we at Hunker await the table reveals. The draw of the Met Gala is often the spectacle taking place outside the historic museum, but what we're interested in is inside.

While this year's theme, "In America: A Lexicon of Fashion" might not have been overtly clear on the carpet, it was effectively translated into the Gala's dinner. The meal was conceived and crafted by 10 notable New York Chefs and the dinnerware was created by American designer Tory Burch.
Each dinner set came with hand-painted, flower-adorned plates, an autumn green or classic white napkin, and bamboo flatware, bringing Tory Burch's signature style, classical with a bohemian touch, to the Gala.
