FOOD FX: 2011 James Beard Restaurant Winners

My favorite of the night ... hooray!

The Outstanding Chef Award went to

José Andrés of minibar in Washington, D.C.

Too bad ... the audience of Chef Andres' peers walked out on his award presentation, per James Beard Award Winner, Ruth Bourdain. 

Has anyone ever walked out on your special moment?
