The Best Things to Do in Miami This Week
Miami’s culinary scene is bustling, and the influx of high-profile chefs, acclaimed restaurants, and nationally recognized festivals continues to transform the Magic City into one of the most desirable destinations for food and drinks. With Taste: Celebrity Chef Edition, you can feed your gastronomical obsession with bites by some of the city’s most sought-after toques. Benefiting Feeding South Florida’s Hunger Action Month, which raises awareness and fights issues such as food insecurity and hunger in America, the event will include Talde’s Dale Talde, the Sarsaparilla Club’s Jeffrey McInnis, Pubbelly Restaurant Group’s Jose Mendin, and Top Chef winner Paul Qui. Nibble your way through the soiree, and don’t feel guilty, because each short rib-filled, bacon-wrapped, and cheese-drizzled bite honors a philanthropic cause. Taste: Celebrity Chef Edition begins at 7 p.m. Thursday at Hyde Beach (1701 Collins Ave., Miami Beach). Tickets cost $75 for general admission and $125 for VIP, which includes a special sashimi demonstration by chef Katsuya Uechi. The event is reserved for those 21 and older. Visit celebritytaste.com.
