Chefs traveled from across the country to show off their talents at the Los Angeles Food & Wine Festival for four packed days of culinary delight commencing with two days of
the Lexus Grand Tasting. Chef Nicole Votano, of Miami Beach’s DIRT, had a busy weekend preparing dishes for the EATER Night Market and the Lexus Grand Tasting events. DIRT, which is one of Miami’s most buzzed about eateries, (Diddy and David Beckham have been in) is open for 3 meals daily with an extensive menu developed around seasonal ingredients. They serve everything from acai bowls to grass-fed butcher’s steak sandwiches to a curried cauliflower bowl– a good selection for vegan or paleo diners.
