Lakshmi visited the popular Wynwood restaurant for a girls' day out with makeup artist Teresa Morgan and friends, according to restaurant partner Rocco Carulli. "
The party ordered steak and eggs minus the steak; chicken and biscuits; and prosecco as they enjoyed performances by R Houses's talented performers. Lakshmi was particularly enthralled with Angie McNasty and requested an encore by the diva.
McNasty complied, according to Carulli, and upped the ante by inviting the celebrity host onstage for a chair dance set to Kathy Brown's "Turn Me Out." According to Carulli, "I didn't think she knew what she was in for, but she was a good sport about it."
Though Carulli didn't hear any intel about Top Chef, he says Bravo's Andy Cohen has also been seen in Miami. Because Lakshmi and Cohen are executive producers of the award-winning culinary competition series, could they be shopping locations for upcoming shoots or possibly an entirely new Miami-based series? Only time will tell.
