The Michelin Guide Collection party at the Wynn was an all out event. Attended by Michelin Star chefs from around the country, this party was the cream of the crop for the gourmet elite. Held at the Wynn’s Sunset Terrace with an after party at Blush, this exclusive VIP event spared no expenses.

The champagne was popping and the cuisine was endless and extravagant. There was the charcuterie from DB Bistro Moderne, the amazing beef from Okada, and the divine salt- crusted sea bass from Bartolotta. In addition to the vast variety of food stations, I must mention the noteworthy pool side decor. The Wynn’s breathtaking Sunset Terrace was transformed in to a red carpet mix of south beach chic with a luxury Wynn aesthetic.

The after party held at Blush in the Wynn was equally festive with a lot of music, dancing, and mingling. It was nice to see a lot of old and new friends and faces in the house. I definitely have to give the Food Fashionista groove star to Hubert Keller who along with being one talented chef is an incredible D.J. and dancer. Always great to see people with a mulititude of talents and interests. It was also so much fun hanging out with my fab friend’s Ceci DeLa Montanya, director of PR for the Charlie Palmer Group and Julian Serrano, Michelin two star chef of Picasso. Since we all hail from the city by the bay, it was a nice reunion.
