20 Lessons Learned at Devoured Food + Wine Classic 2014

Imagine a magical land where the best Valley restaurants are crammed into one courtyard serving flavor-packed samples to grab your attention and win you over. That magical land happened Sunday at Devoured, where Phoenix's top spots, including Crudo, Virtu, and FnB, set up shop at the Phoenix Art Museum for the afternoon. While last year's Devoured suffered from a cramped, hard-to-navigate layout, this year's event was spread out and easier to get around. After a couple of years of hitting up the popular food festival, we have learned a lot about how to survive a day of devouring Devoured.
