To create the best event during the best weekend of the year, SOBEWFF rounded up 60 of the nation’s top chefs to showcase their most gourmet samplings to pair with over 100 wines rated 90 points or higher on Wine Spectator’s scale. The Fontainebleau Miami Beach sets the perfect stage with its own blend of Golden Era glamour and modern luxury to host this grand walk-around affair, featuring a cohort of critically-acclaimed chefs, James Beard Award nominees and finalists, Food & Wine Best New Chefs, and more decorated talent. Only proprietors and winemakers from each winery are invited to pour their top varietals so you can hear about how some of the world’s greatest vino makes it from their vineyards to your palate. From aperitif to dessert, we’ll make sure your glass is decadently decanted and your plate is full of first-rate cuisine.
Fontainebleau’s participating ‘Best of the Best’ chefs included Thomas Connell, VP of Culinary, Scott Conant, Scarpetta by Scott Conant, Christopher Li, Scarpetta by Scott Conant, Michael Mina, StripSteak, Rodrigo Ochoa, StripSteak by Michael Mina, Jian H.
