Slow Food Miami Awards: Celeb Chefs, Grey Goose Cocktails, and the City's Best Sustainable Eats

Screw fast food and all its unhealthy connotations. Slow food is where it's at. Such is the aim of Slow Food Miami, an organization dedicated to embracing local growers and artisan food producers who focus on fair pay, sustainability, and local produce. Each year, they host the swanky Snail of Approval Awards Party, honoring local eateries that serve the group's mission.

This past weekend at the James Royal Palm, chefs from the city's best eateries crafted farm-to-table concoctions. Guests nibbled their way around the pool, sipped Grey Goose cocktails, and picked their food favorites on a breezy Miami night in March. Seriously, events like this are why Miami is unsurpassed. Beat that, New York City.
