At The News Lounge Cafe, diners will find a menu of delectable dishes and sandwiches made with fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Chef Nuno Grullon prepares creative versions of tuna tartare, ceviche, and mini burgers in addition to more traditional tapas dishes including stuffed dates and spare ribs. Guests can dine amid eclectic, modern decor and belly up to an indoor bar, or host a large party within the VIP mirror room. But what really sets The News Lounge Cafe apart is its chic outdoor lounge. Here, tables encircle a koi fountain, offering patrons a place to sit when they're not mingling at the island bar or playing on the outdoor pool tables. At night, the patio might reverberate with beats from a guest DJ, but by day, the sunny, al fresco space is perfect for enjoying Chef Grullon's organic brunch, which features farm-to-table options.
The characters in Barbara Fox's original shows literally spring to life off the page, just in time to be murdered. Whether held as a public performance or commissioned for a private show, Mystery On The Menu productions challenge audience members to take a hands-on approach to solving the crime. And they should take an interest in the investigation?after all, they might be the culprit and not even know it. Attendees will be given lines to read, and must take on the responsibility of piecing together clues, interrogating fellow party members, and polygraph-testing the tablecloth themselves. Each interactive play ends with the apprehension of an unsuspecting guest, who remains unaware of their character's murderous truth until the fictional cuffs latch.
The proprietors of Cheeseadillas want you to rethink the quesadilla. Instead of simply slapping together two tortillas with a handful of cheese, the kitchen staff here borrows ingredients from all over the world to create one-of-a-kind flavor combinations. Here's a sampling of what you can expect:
Cuban-style lechon asado (aka roast pork) is dressed with mojo criollo as well as mixed greens, tomatoes, and onions
The vegetarian melanzane funghetto presses sauteed eggplant, San Marzano tomatoes, and fresh mozzarella inside a flour tortilla
The sauteed crab in the crab medley complements molten mozzarella, peppers, onions, and white rice
Savory side dishes include mashed potatoes, fried yuca, and hummus
Claude Postel was so eager to get into the culinary industry that he dropped out of school at 15 to do so. The native Frenchman became the seventh generation of his family to follow this path, and more than 40 years later it's proven to be a wise decision. His Buena Vista brand has found success in several iterations, including the Buena Vista Bistro and Buena Vista Chocolate & Wine, a cozy shop where patrons can pick up gourmet chocolates, rare wines, and anything else that's not too heavy to lift. Perhaps the shop's most popular sweets, though, are the 1?9 assortment, a mix of milk and dark chocolates filled with everything from hazelnuts to lime ganache. Other chocolate creations, meanwhile, infuse bold flavors such as violet and curry.
Different languages, customs, and traditions separate one country from the next. But there's one thing places around the globe share a passion for: booze. On January 25, Miami's historic Moore Building transforms into a melting pot of spirits, showcasing hooch from a dozen countries.
Here, attendees don't need plane tickets or jetpacks to cross borders—they simply stroll from one station to the next, sipping more than 100 vodkas, tequilas, sakes, beers, whiskeys, and other alcohols along the way. At each stop, staffers stamp the attendees' provided passports, which they can use to claim a gift bag at the end of the night or to take a trip to Canada. But the evening's drinking serves a higher purpose than just getting schnookered, as proceeds from the event will be poured back into Ronald McDonald House Charities.
