Dinner Roll, Please: ‘08 SOBE Honorees Already LeakedRestaurant Girl has dug up the 2008 South Beach Food & Wine Festival honorees. Next year’s special food people will be … Jean-Georges Vongerichten and Jamie Oliver! The ‘07 fest, which won’t even be held until the end of this month, will give props to Maguy Le Coze and Le Bernardin’s Eric Ripert; Martha Stewart gets her own tribute brunch. Widely attended by the restaurant elite, if only because it’s an excuse to party in South Beach during the dead of winter, the SOBE event will likely be even more crowded this February — new sponsor the Food Network will be taping its first annual Food Network Awards there.
