One of the things about chefs is that while they always know what's going on with their fellows, it can be hard for them to take a night off and actually check out the hot new places as guests. So you can imagine that there was a little excitement at the prospect of Curtis Duffy's newly-opened and extremely hot Grace hosting the Chefs Social in advance of the Jean Banchet Awards, given annually as a benefit for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Upwards of 100 guests including a serious cross-section of the city's top chefs came out to cast secret ballots for the awards, which will be given on February 8; once that duty was out of the way, they were all about catching up and checking out Curtis' new pad and eats. Our man Huge Galdones was there; check out all the culinary stars who came out in his slideshow below.
