BESPOKE Dinner at Pubbelly Noodle Bar



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.

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 here.
