#BOOM. Click this photo for more of last night’s epic and hard to top Hot & Hot Pizzeria with chef Chris Hastings and Back Forty Beer Company, gradually uploading to Flickr and expertly shot by Ellie!

It’s that time again!  We are pleased to announce that tickets are now live for our September pop-up: Empire State South Pizzeria featuring chef Hugh Acheson!

Nabbing TWO James Beard Foundation Award wins this year – one for best chef southeast and the other for his cookbook, “A New Turn in the South,” Canadian-born chef Hugh Acheson comes to us in Miami from Atlanta, GA where he is the chef/partner at Five & Ten, The National, Gosford Wine and Empire State South. You may have also seen him as judge on this past season of Top Chef. We cannot wait to host Hugh and get a taste of his fresh approach to Southern food.

After esteemed visiting guest chefs Gabrielle Hamilton, Jonathan Waxman, Marc Vetri, Jonathon Sawyer, Kevin Sbraga, Jon Shook and Vinny Ditolo, and James Beard Award-winning wine director Paul Grieco, Michael welcomes chef Acheson to take over Harry’s Pizzeria on Wednesday, September 12 at 7:00 p.m.

Seating is first come, first served. Making new friends is encouraged and easy when you’ve got a welcome cocktail in hand with hors d’oeuvre, four courses, free-flowing wines by The Genuine Hospitality Group sommelier and Wine Director Eric Larkee and our tap beers including Michael’s Genuine Home Brew at your disposal. Go home with a special gift too, Hugh’s James Beard Award-winning cookbook A New Turn in the South. All that and tax and gratuity are included in the ticket price of $150.

Be there or be square!
