Beginning today, Verde at Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) is offering a special three-course prix-fixe menu to honor the new ‘Basquiat: The Unknown Notebooks’ exhibit created by American artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. Executive Chef Kaytlin Brakefield translates the artist’s notebook-filled poetry fragments, wordplay and sketches with subjects of street life, themes of race, class and world history. In her translation, Chef Kaytlin creates a menu featuring bold dishes and references the artist’s symbolic notebook, ethnicity and early career. To start, guests can enjoy the Watermelon Carpaccio with muscadine grapes, feta, ver jus (also known as verjuice) and cilantro meant to represent the muted aspects of Basquiat’s notebook. As the main entrée, guests will have the Black and White Pages, made from housemade fazzoletti, octopus and cacio e pepe with burgundy-toned octopus to accentuate the boldness of the black and white dish. The meal ends on a tropical, indulgent note with Coconut Tembleque with dark chocolate graffiti and gold leaf shaped like a three-pointed crown to reflect Basquiat’s cultural and career background as a graffiti artist.
