Yesterday we announced our first ever summer series with the Miami Design District, with a line up of events reimagining classic outdoor summer pastimes. Now it’s time to grill down the details of our kickoff event. June 10’s outdoor feast is like a greatest hits of Chef Michael’s favorites, featuring a menu of cookbook classics and then some more off Lynx Grills (and rotisseries, a pizza oven and flattop “asado” grill!) Because it’s summer, pairings by Wines of Germany with special attention to Riesling are in order, the perfect bright complement to a fiery feast of smokey, genuine flavors.
Guests will enjoy a cocktail hour from 6-7PM with passed bites followed by a three-course seated dinner at farm-style tables in breezy Palm Court. The evening will feature live music from Marcus Grant “Mutes & Roots” Jazz Trio.
