Ecléctico Restaurant & Agave Bar Kicks Off Its Five-Month Tequila Dinner Series, Featuring Four Curated Courses Centered Around a Selection of Sponsored Premium Spirits
Launching late June, the Merrick Park hotspot’s sizzling summer dinner series pairs craft cocktails and top-shelf tequila samples with bold, inventive Pan-Latin cuisine for just $150 per person.
Coral Gables’ colorful new Latin Fusion concept Ecléctico Restaurant & Agave Bar has unveiled an immersive curated dinner series that’s guaranteed to inject Miami’s slower summer months with a much-needed dose of fun and flavor. Teaming up with some of the most coveted names in tequila—along with a couple of premium boutique brands—Ecléctico will host five installments of its Tequila Dinner series, launching Wednesday, June 29 with the first one being sponsored by Patron Tequila.
For $150 per person (inclusive of tax & gratuity), each three-course dinner in the series features a menu of elevated Mexican staples and globally inspired Latin tapas crafted around a sampling of three different spirit tastings and one specialty cocktail. Surrounded by the warm, inviting atmosphere of Eclectico’s dining room covered in floor-to-ceiling hand-painted murals, guests will indulge in a sensuous tasting menu complemented by drink pairings as tequila representatives discuss the spirits and guide them through each course.
At June’s inaugural Tequila Dinner sponsored by Patron, guests will be treated to a handcrafted welcome cocktail and a tantalizing amuse-bouche before diving into a multicourse meal that includes fresh seafood ceviche in a zesty coconut-lime marinade, al pastor lamb lollipops, cilantro chicken breast and a spicy chocolate lava cake made with dark chocolate and Mexican dried chiles. Each spirit pairing becomes more robust as dinner progresses, concluding with a tingle-inducing sherry cask añejo tequila with dessert. An alternative vegan menu is also available.
August 24: The Lost Explorer Mezcal ($150)
