It's over. The gluttonous celebration of food known as the South Beach Wine & Food Festival is in the books. History books? Maybe. Cookbooks? Absolutely.
Yep, the festival celebrated its tenth anniversary, and Short Order was there to eat its way through it all. There were plenty of highlights, including the last ever BubbleQ, which Lee Schrager promised would be retooled next year into Red, White, and Q -- a more wine-centric event. Then there was the superb Let Them Eat Cake at the 1111 Lincoln Rd. parking garage. The event, hosted by Martha Stewart and Emeril Lagasse, celebrated the festival tenth birthday and is one we are hoping will return next year.
But if you happened to miss it all, check out all of Short Order's Wine & Food Festival coverage here. And that's not all! Our cameras were also around shooting some of the highlights, including:
- Amstel Light Burger Bash
- Perrier-Jouët BubbleQ
- Best of the Best
- The Best Thing I Ever Ate at the Beach
- Whole Foods Market Grand Tasting Village
