For the second year in a row, we have had the pleasure of photographing the exclusive Rose Bowl party hosted by Michael Murphy and sponsored by Open Table, celebrating the nominees and winners of the James Beard Foundation Awards. This year's party was held at Spiaggia Restaurant in downtown Chicago and it was non-stop fun all around! Jimmy Bannos Jr. from the Purple Pig served up delicious charcuterie while Whispering Angel kept the rose coming!
You might recognize some of the faces below including the likes of Jesse Tyler Ferguson from the hit TV show Modern Family, Charles Phan (owner of San Francisco's Slanted Door restaurant) and Jimmy Banos Jr., owner of Chicago's Purple Pig restaurant.
We can't wait until next year! Cheers!
