New York crushed it at the James Beard Awards last night, with big wins for David Chang, Maguy Le Coze, Blue Hill, Del Posto, Danny Bowien, and Taavo Somer. Of course, the real fun of the Beards begins when the final award is announced and tarted up food world personalities are unleashed into the gala room and the streets of Manhattan for the post awards party circuit.
This year, the Del Posto party drew the biggest crowds, the cops crashed the EMP/Nomad soiree, Thomas Keller made an appearance at The Spotted Pig bash, and some of the big winners of the night partied till the wee hours of the morning at Momofuku Noodle Bar. Head over to Eater National for a full recap of the night, with photos and gossip from the 2013 James Beard Awards and the after parties.
