Hillary Dixler Canavan is Eater's restaurant editor and the author of the publication's debut book, Eater: 100 Essential Restaurant Recipes From the Authority on Where to Eat and Why It Matters (Abrams, September 2023). Her work focuses on dining trends and the people changing the industry — and scouting the next hot restaurant you need to try on Eater's annual Best New Restaurant list.

The Favreaumobile is on the move: Actor/director/writer Jon Favreau is in Miami along with his fictional El Jefe Cubanos food truck to shoot his upcoming Chef movie, Eater Miami reports. An Eater tipster sent in the above photo, showing the truck in town. Ever Vine-happy, Favreau posted a video revealing that he was also filming at Versailles restaurant in Miami's Little Havana and at the Fontainbleau hotel. According to Jaie Laplante of the Miami Film Festival, the "production is also making stops in New Orleans and Austin before they wrap." (If you spot them in town, you know what to do.) Below, Favreau and actress Sophia Vergara looking pretty relaxed in spite of these legal troubles at Versailles in Miami:
