Last night, South Beach came to Midtown Manhattan courtesy of Lee Schrager and the just-released cookbook celebrating the best recipes from a decade of his Florida festival, Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival Cookbook. The event, which took over the upscale NYC shopping mecca Barneys, celebrated both the cookbook and the unveiling of foodie-themed holiday windows at the store, conceptualized by Schrager and Barneys creative director Simon Doonan. Many of the faces immortalized in the windows showed up as well, from Jamie Oliver to Bobby Flay to Mario Batali.
In homage to the serious Twitter skills of Schrager—@Lee_Schrager, in the parlance—Eater hereby presents a very special all-Twitter edition of Hangover Observations.
