Dana Cowin and David Chang All Gussied Up

Looks like the black-tie part of the event was optional? It was, at least, for Momofuku's David Chang and Food & Wine's Dana Cowin, who were sporting some snazzy disposable aprons. "Look @davidchang & @fwscout are dressed up and ready for #jbfa," Food & Wine restaurants editor Kate Krader tweeted.
