Omakase Dinner with Paul Qui @ Pao 4.26.17 & 5.24.17






As you know, I'm a big fan of Chef Paul Qui and enjoyed several great dinners with him last year at his Miami Beach spot Pao located at the fantastic Faena Hotel.  Click on the links below to read recaps of his wonderful  Cobaya dinner as well as his post Cobaya omakase  throwdown and his killer kaiseki dinner with one of  Food & Wine's Best New Chefs 2017, Yoshi Okai from Otoko (Austin) in the house. 

He's bringing omakase back on April 26 and May 24. Paul and his fairly new chef de cuisine, Benjamin Murray, will prepare a 12-course omakase menu.   The dinners are priced at $95.00.  I guarantee that these will be great meals.  



DINNER7:00pm – 11:00pm (Sunday – Thursday)

Cochon 555 Heritage BBQ Miami 3.26.17







     



At the heart of all Cochon555 Heritage BBQ events lies a culinary competition to promote family farming. Five chefs are each given one whole, heritage breed pig and one week to prepare the entire 200 pound animal. The winner is decided between a People's Vote and 24 Celebrity Judges, who then crown the winner, Miami's “Prince or Princess of Pork.” The winning chef advances to the year-end finale competition called Grand Cochon, to be held this year on October 1st in Chicago. Running in tandem to the culinary competition is the Somm Smackdown (rare and amazing wines paired with all dishes) and Punch Kings featuring five of the cities top barkeeps battling in whole-bottle competition.
