Those of you who loyally read APD (all 4 of you) know how I much I love Bourbon Steak. I look back fondly on the day Michael Mina found his way into my heart via duck fat fries and truffle mac and cheese. I'm just that kind of gal.
Now we humble Miamians will have a chance to feast courtesy of the man himself tomorrow night when Michael Mina hosts an intimate five-course gourmet dinner paired with a rare selection of wines from Hyde de Villaine, based in north San Francisco in Carneros.
According to the press release: As the nationally-acclaimed chef works his magic in the kitchen at BOURBON STEAK, Winemaker Stéphane Vivier, in collaboration with Sommelier Matthew Turner, will educate guests on the unique philosophies and marriage of Californian and French viticulture.
The intimate evening begins with a champagne reception at 7:30 p.m. in the lounge, where popular blues duo Albert Castiglia and Graham Drout will already be on “stage” to showcase the restaurant’s new BOURBON & Blues event. Following the reception, gourmands will be led to a sleek private dining room for an epicure experience like none other. $200 per person, includes tax, gratuity and valet parking. Seating is limited and reservations are required by calling (786) 279-6600.
