The greatest minds in culinary, all at one table: What would you ask? On this episode of Foodable’s At The Chef’s Table, Miami’s chef community unites in their desire not to follow in the footsteps of New York or Los Angeles but to grow their own culinary culture. Along with focusing on their own passions, these Miami chefs also emphasize the importance of evolving with their community.

Grown, Shannon Allen’s healthy fast food concept is just one of those striving to solve the problems today’s health-conscious consumer is facing. “I think if you’re not going towards farm to table, if you’re not sourcing local ingredients, you're going to answer to a customer that’s very smart, has dealt with health problems, has food allergies, is very aware of what they are putting in their mouth and that it affects not only how they feel but also their lifespan,” she explains.

Grab a seat at the table with host Paul Barron and Miami star chefs Giorgio Rapicavoli, Diego Oka, Paula DaSilva, Cesar Zapata, and Shannon Allen.

The Art Basel madness has already hit Miami, and we all know Basel isn't just about the art, but everything that encompasses it – the parties, the food, and the who's who. Snowbirds, locals and tourists alike will infest galleries, pop-ups and only the best restaurants this city has to offer. To prep for such a whirlwind, you could probably use a drink.

Enter Giorgio Rapicavoli's the Drinking Room. Opening tonight at Hotel Astor, the pop-up bar will be around until New Year's Eve.
