Where Did the Celebrity Chefs Eat in Miami During SOBEWFF?
Scott Conant, Eric Ripert, Geoffrey Zakarian, and François Payard enjoy a moment at Soho Beach House.
Each year, hundreds of celebrity chefs descend upon our fair city to work and play at the South Beach Wine & Festival.
And though their dance cards might seem full with all the fabulous parties and events they host and attend, there always seems to be just enough free time to get out and enjoy some of Miami's best restaurants.
Here's where some of our favorite celeb chefs ate during the festival:
Apparently, the welcome cocktail at Tongue & Cheek's Kitchen Collab lunch with Robert Irvine had a generous amount of bourbon in it, because we caught some extremely playful moments between chefs:
Haven's Todd Erickson and Ingrid Hoffmann shared a little lunch love.
Geoffrey Zakarian and Morimoto exchanged eyeglasses after a few champagnes. Zakarian to Morimoto: "You have f***'ing bad eyesight."
And, of course, Robert Irvine was both in the kitchen with Jamie DeRosa and working the tables during the lunch:
Anne Burrell enjoyed Khong River House while in town:
Geoffrey Zakarian sneaked out between his Farm to Table Brunch and his turn at the Grand Tasting Village to enjoy (and tweet about) Restaurant Michael Schwartz at the Raleigh Hotel:
Anthony Bourdain and Ludo Lefebvre took their wives out for a bite at Cheeseburger Baby:
