We’re eagerly anticipating the 2012 James Beard Foundation Awards on Monday, May 7, 2012. To get the party started, Michael Murphy did just that. Once again, OpenTable had the great pleasure of sponsoring Mr. Murphy’s Annual Rosé Bowl at Jonathan Waxman’s Barbuto restaurant in Manhattan. A fete for San Francisco’s nominees, attendees included many bold-faced Bay Area names, including Thomas Keller (The French Laundry), Anna Weinberg (Marlowe), Emily Luchetti (Farallon), Jeremiah Tower (Chez Panisse), Gary Danko, as well as Dana Cowin and a surprise visit from Katie Couric, along with many, many more of our favorite folks in food. You can see our exclusive slide show below!
