These tasted more like an overly buttered box of popcorn.C- Eater Miami checks in with a bunch of the chefs coming to town for the South Beach Wine & Food Festival.
Daniel Boulud: I have two events I am participating in, the festival's annual Dolce Brunch that will be new to db Bistro Moderne, Miami. Brunch will feature the sweet wines of Dolce Winery and be paired with a 3-course db Bistro menu. Pairing sweet wines can be challenging so we have taken great care with the menu including my signature Smoked Salmon Crêpes Vonassiennes with Celery Root Remoulade and Dill Crème Fraîche and Crispy Duck Confit with Soft Poached Farm Egg, Potato Hash, Duck Prosciutto, Watercress Salad, Sweet and Sour Duck Jus.D- Carlos Miller files a federal lawsuit against 50 State Security (and constructs another long ass post title).

Oh, and Marco Rubio.
