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:

Laine Doss
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:

................IF they were smart they left MIAMI and went to FULVIOs, just like BILLY JOEL did after LIVE his performance down here

when someone rich and famous who can eat anywhere and has ONE night to do it and he goes to FULVIOs that's gotta tell you something - no ?

of course the CHEFs may have financial arrangements and contractual obligations that may not allow them to go to FULVIOs

That would be the legendary French chef Eric Ripert.


Well, that was absolutely pointless.
