SOBEWFF 2016: Saturday's New Times' Best Bite on the Beach Winner Is American Social

Saturday's Grand Tasting Village at the South Beach Wine & Food Festival saw thousands of people enjoy an afternoon filled with wine, food, and celebrities.

The star power was turned up to high volume with Rachael Ray, Guy Fieri, Nigella Lawson, Giada DeLaurentiis, Robert IRvine, Alex Guarnaschelli, and Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka just some of the chefs taking to the stage to host culinary demos and kibbutz with fans.

Of course, there's no food and wine festival with great food, and Miami's top chefs from 40 of the best restaurants in town rose to the occasion, serving fine eats in the quest for the coveted New Times' Best Bite on the Beach award. 

The award is chosen by GTV attendees, who vote for the best bite they enjoyed. The votes have been tabulated and Saturday's winning restaurant is American Social.

If you're heading out to the Grand Tasting Village on Sunday, be sure to visit New Times and pick up a Liqs shot. You can also vote for your favorite restaurant and read the New Times to find out which restaurant earned Sunday's Best Bite on the Beach title.
