South Beach Wine & Food Festival

SoBeWFF 2015 Recap: The Best and the Worst

As the sun sets on the 2015 edition of the South Beach Wine & Food Festival, it's time to take stock of the weekend.

The festival saw an improved Grand Tasting Village that had better flow in the massive tasting tents. There was also a roster of new parties that included Meatopia, the Italian Al Fresco Feast, and the Art of Tiki.

The weekend was packed with dozens of well-organized dinners and fetes, but some suffered serious glitches.

New Times' food writing staff has compiled a list of the best and the worst at the festival.
