When we first met Jeff McInnis, chef de cuisine at the DiLido Beach Club, he presented us with plate after plate of fare that melded perfectly with the Miami sun, and then finished our lunch with a coconut sorbet that made us wonder if he was, perhaps, Zeus in an apron. Blond hair flowing in the wind, the culinary chops to make any girl swoon, and those eyes oh, he gave Beckham a run for his money with those. And when he showed up as a contestant on Bravos Top Chef, we were elated to have him in our bedroom, but a bit disappointed wed have to share him with the world. This Saturday night, McInnis will give all of his fans an opportunity to step into his reality at Chefs Night. The winsome toque has invited fellow Season 5 Top Chef-ers Leah Cohen, Hosea Rosenberg, Melissa Harrison, and Jamie Lauren to join him in an evening of munching in the penthouse suite at the Pelican Hotel. Each chef will man a station chock full of their own culinary creations and serve you for $175 per person. The ocean view, the open bar, the hunky host... now this is what we call must-see TV.
