Scenes From This Week’s Palm Beach Food and Wine Festival

Just last year, the Palm Beach Food and Wine Festival wasn’t much more than a three-hour gathering on Worth Avenue, but this year — the festival’s fifth anniversary — organizer David Sabin joined forces with Gilt City and the James Beard Foundation to transform the festival into a five-night celebration that lasted from Friday until this past Tuesday. There were no Burger Bashes here, but there were plenty of New York chefs like Daniel Boulud, John DeLucie, and Scott Conant in attendance. It’s not the South Beach Wine and Food fest just yet, but as you’ll see in our slideshow, it might be on its way to becoming SOBE’s posher, more exclusive sibling.
