Florida Winners – Eater’s Regional 38 Restaurant List

On March 23rd, Eater launched ‘Regional 38,’ a list highlighting the essential restaurants in the American South, including Florida’s very own Alter and El Palacio de los Jugos inMiami, FL.

A playful, exciting, and unexpected ascendant in Miami’s buzzing Wynwood Arts District. Alter’s cramped, stripped-down space in a former warehouse departs from the town’s unending voracity for glitz, but locals and visitors eagerly wade into the melee.

The South never really embraced modernist cooking; the success of chef and co-owner Brad Kilgore’s breakout hit is the deserving exception. Whirling with global flavors, his vibrant creations (poached egg dressed in scallop espuma and truffle pearls as one example) are so exquisitely constructed that cleaning your plate feels like an act of vandalism. — says local expert, Lee Klein

An exuberant array of traditional Cuban foods and fresh juices, vended from stalls squeezed into a tropical fruit market. Portions are huge, prices are modest, and the mojo-marinated lechón asado is killer.

To lunch at outdoor tables alongside the bustling crowds, with your Styrofoam container of comida, is to take a colossal bite of the Miami-Cuban cultural and culinary experience. El Palacio has multiple locations, but the original on Flagler is the one to visit. — says local expert, Lee Klein

Chef Jose Mendin To Host Cochon555 Bespoke Dinner On March 25th

An Evening Of Culinary Modernity At Pubbelly Noodle Bar Hosted By The Pubbelly Group’s Chef José Mendin With Special Guest Chefs Diego Oka And Michael Beltran

Miami, FL (March 22, 2017) — One of America’s most dynamic culinary festivals, Cochon555, brings its 2017 tour to Miami on March 25 and 26. The weekend kicks off with Chef’s Course, a one-of-a-kind, 5-course dining experience (in the name of Piggy Bank charity) at Pubbelly Noodle Bar (1418 20th St, Miami Beach, FL 33139), with Chef Jose Mendin. Below, please find key information about this very special evening in support of a safer, more honest, and delicious food future.

Hosted by Jose Mendin of The Pubbelly Group on Saturday, March 25 at 7:00PM, Chef’s Course BESPOKE: An Evening of Culinary Modernity, will feature guest chefs Diego Oka of La Mar by Gaston Acurio at Mandarin Oriental and Michael Beltran of Ariete. The evening will take as its theme “Culinary Modernity,” with each chef creating one course that embodies their own conception of the night’s core ideas. The final course will be a group collaboration, in which all four chefs will cook one family-style course representative of what they believe to be modernity.

Premium wine and cocktail pairings will accompany the five course meal following a pre-dinner cocktail reception with passed appetizers presented by House of Angostura. To close the evening, Chef Maria Orantes of Pubbelly Noodle Bar will prepare a pastry course featuring Perfect Puree of Napa Valley. Evan Benn of the Miami Herald, along with Piggy Bank founder Brady Lowe and Communications Director Robert McKeown will be in attendance as guides of sorts – our own culinary Virgils – illuminating for all in attendance the ideas which define our culinary time and inspire Cochon555 events. Tickets for the dinner are $125 and can be purchased online.

Where: Pubbelly Noodle Bar, 1418 20th St, Miami Beach, FL 33139
When: Saturday March 25th, Reception 7:00 p.m. Dinner 7:30 p.m. sharp
Reserve: Seats are $125 each, to purchase tickets visit link here

Guests wanting to purchase a one-of-a-kind BESPOKE weekend package can reserve the multi-course, guest chef charity dinner on Saturday (wine, cocktail pairings, a degustation, and a chef meet & greet) and combine it with a one-of-a-kind Cochon555 Sunday tasting experience and behind-the-scenes tour, including a $75 donation to our sister charity, Piggy Bank (piggy-bank.org). The uber-luxury BESPOKE package costs $400 and includes a special 3:00 p.m. entry time to Cochon555, with a 45-minute behind-the-scenes guided tour with a Cochon555 Director. The exclusive tour includes a tableside introduction to the Somm Smackdown featuring wines selected by five renowned Denver sommeliers, followed by an introduction to five notable barkeeps competing in a whole-bottle, highly-spirited Bourbon Punch Competition called Punch Kings. Only ten BESPOKE tickets are available for $400 each and can be purchased online at cochon555.com/2017-tour/miami/.

“Our BESPOKE dinner series was created as a way to link an intimate and luxurious food-and-wine experience to the very ideas that help define our culinary time – and future,” says Cochon555 founder Brady Lowe. “We’ve tried to evolve the experience of our main event with the addition of palate-expanding dinners like Chef’s Course that extend the rich, complex flavors that are created when cooking heritage breed pigs.”

At the center of all Cochon555 events is a culinary championship featuring five chefs cooking five whole, heritage breed pigs with innovative techniques and bold flavor profiles. One week before the event, each chef receives a knock on their door by a pig farmer and a 180-200 pound heritage breed pig. They are each tasked to create and present a “Judge’s Plate” of 6 dishes scored on categories such as utilization; cooking techniques; and overall flavor. The winner from each city is crowned the “Prince or Princess of Porc,” and given a place at our national championship, Grand Cochon, to be held in Chicago during October 2017.

Communal feasting is an integral part of the Cochon555 culinary fabric. Beyond the 30 chef-competitor dishes – all told, some 1,200-plus pounds of heritage pork from family farms – guests can sample beef tartare with the wines of Antica Napa Valley, farmhouse cheeses; a pop-up bakery from La Brea; a Salami Snack Bar from Creminelli and Divina; a ramen noodle soup bar paired with the wines of Twomey and Silver Oak among others. Innovative spirit, wine, and cocktail experiences include Smoked Old Fashioneds with Breckenridge Bourbon; The Manhattan Project presented by Poached Jobs, the Tiki Bar featuring Angostura Rum punches; a Courvoisier Cognac cocktail and neat tasting; and a Heritage Rum Cart. The array of wines grouped under our “5 Winemakers” banner features Silver Oak, Scholium Project; Pax Wine Cellars; and more.

About the Cochon555 US Tour
The Cochon555 US Tour executes a yearly host of authentic, hyper-local food events focused on raising awareness for heritage breed pigs through an innovative nose-to-tail pig cooking competition. This epic pork feast visits 20 major cities in North America annually and stages over 60 events. The tour is comprised of an array of live expressions including Heritage Fire (live-fire); Heritage BBQ (global grilling cultures; and Grand Cochon (national whole-hog championship). Cochon555 cultivates a long-term impact for heritage species, raised by family farms in top culinary markets in North America. Both educational and inspirational messages are circulated among 16,000 guests; 2,200+ chefs; 150+ family farms; and 16 culinary schools.

Mellow Mushroom & House Of Shroom – SS17 Lifestyle Collection Is Here

House of Shroom is a lifestyle brand that developed from the Mellow Mushroom gourmet pizza restaurant chain. The creative mind behind the vibrant and magical label is Elizabeth Brasch, who, together with a team of homegrown artists, designs and creates the apparel and accessories. The SS17 collection is comprised of three capsules: Rainbow Trip, Good Pizza and Roots.

Each capsule was designed to embody a signature aspect of the Mellow Mushroom restaurant that established the House of Shroom brand.

SS17 Capsules

RAINBOW TRIP – The Rainbow Trip capsule takes you back in time to the early 1970’s, when Mellow Mushroom was born. Throughout this collection, you will see elements of the peace-loving, hippie era that the 70`s were. The crew neck, v-neck, short and 3/4 sleeve tees include groovy prints such as the signature peace sign, flower power, rainbow prism lettering and old school cars.

GOOD PIZZA – The Good Pizza capsule is exactly what it sounds like… and dedication to pizza lovers. The art in this collection portrays pizza as the heart of it all: space shuttles, playing cards and patriotic gear. The collection offers long and short sleeve soft tees with trendy prints including the Let Them Eat Pie cards tee and It Was All A Dream tees.

ROOTS – The Roots collection pays direct homage to Mellow Mushroom and its psychedelic art during the first years of it’s being in 1974. The bright colored and cartoon-like art resembles that of the prints from their original apparel collection.

As a University of Miami alumnus, Elizabeth Brasch gained first-hand multi-cultural experiences during her time in the melting pot city. These encounters inspired the unique art and theme seen throughout the collection from its origination in 2015 to today.

Back track to the early 1970`s, when Mellow Mushroom was first born, but Elizabeth wasn’t – three college students combined forces to open a pizza shop in Atlanta, GA. That small shop evolved and went on to become the popular franchise we know today. In addition to the delicious food and craft beers that helped Mellow Mushroom flourish, they created a collection of exclusive accessories and apparel inspired by their signature psychedelic motif, per patron requests. Since the 1970’s, “Mellow Gear,” as they called it then, consisted of quality t-shirts, hoodies, hats and glassware embellished with art designed by homegrown artists. Today, that brand is known as House of Shroom and it is still deeply rooted and connected to the two cities that helped the restaurant and label flourish, Atlanta and Miami.

House of Shroom merchandise fuses the root philosophies of the restaurant and transforms it to reflect our modern world today.

Throughout his career, he has worked under world-renowned chefs like Christian Delouvrier, Eric Ripert, and Joel Antunes, among others.

Pfeiffer’s Spring menu will bring classic food stepped in history, technique and familiar flavors to RYC. “Spring is my favorite season because of the bounty of fresh produce that begins to culminate,” says Pfeiffer. “My inspiration, as with most of my menus, is rooted in vibrant flavors and healthy, fresh ingredients. Simple, clean cooking, paired with bright, fresh flavors are the driving force behind the inspiration for the menu.” He aims to provide an experience where guests will take away a memory of happiness and an unforgettable meal in the beautiful surroundings of the Miami River.

Much like RYC’s year round a la carte offerings, the menu focuses on seasonal seafood. Standout dishes include: Alaskan King Crab Salad with a gazpacho andalous; Thai Coconut Mussels in a coconut-lemongrass broth and candied shitake mushrooms; Poached Monkfish

Nicoise with a local herb salad; Pepper-Crusted Yellowfin Tuna Au Poivre and roasted maitake mushrooms; and Scallops Provencal in a tomato brulee.

Chef Pfeiffer’s menu will be available for dinner service at RYC beginning March 20, the first day of Spring.

“Chef Pfeiffer’s approach to fresh, seasonal dishes, along with his refined French techniques make him the perfect selection to conceptualize our new menu,” says partner Stephane Dupoux.
