More than 100 people at Red The Steakhouse were treated to a six-course meal (not including passed Hors d'oeuvres and Prosecco) at a dinner to benefit The James Beard Scholarship Fund.

The theme of the dinner was Meet The Chefs South of Fifth, a tribute to the fact that SoFi has become a central hub for fine dining. 

Though each chef could technically call each other rivals,

vying for the same audience of carnivorous eaters in one small area

south of Fifth Street, the scene was one of camaraderie as executive

chef Peter Vauthy shared his kitchen with chef Roy Mitchell (Buckhead

Beef), chef Andre Bienvenu (Joe's Stone Crab), chef Daniel Ganem (Kane Steakhouse), chef Dana Brizee (Smith and Wollensky), chef Douglas Rodriguez, pastry chef Christian Cobos (De Rodriguez Cuba), and chef Scott Popovic (Certified Angus Beef).

After dinner, guests were invited to mingle with the chefs on the restaurant's rooftop over a glass of Casa Dragones tequila.
