As the sun set on Fort Lauderdale, the wine poured freely as thousands of people enjoyed food and drink al fresco at Friday evening's Las Olas Wine and Food Festival.

More than three dozen of South Florida's finest restaurants were represented at the fete that benefits the American Lung Association, and more than two dozen vintners, spirits companies, and brewers were on hand to pour freely while music played and guests enjoyed the warm evening.

Though all bites were impressive, Clean Plate Charlie judges agreed on some all-around winners.

Shooters Waterfront Cafe's undersea fantasy won the best display; Craverum rum cakes were by far the most decadent (and boozy) dessert on Las Olas Boulevard.

Mancini Modern Italian won our hearts (and the best service title) for its custom-made mozzarella cheese made on the spot and served with a smile. Finally, the best taste award goes to 3030 for its delicious wahoo dish.
