BARGAIN AT BOURBON
Curious about Bourbon Steak, the new Michael Mina restaurant at Fairmont Turnberry Isle Resort, but worried about the sticker shock? A Wednesday American Institute of Wine & Food dinner may be the ticket.
For the relative bargain price of $105 ($95 for AIWF members), you get a three-course ''Back to Basics'' menu that includes a choice of heirloom tomato soup with lobster grilled cheese or romaine with black olive Caesar dressing; an American Kobe burger, barbecued pork short ribs or wood-grilled organic chicken with sides; and beignets with crème brulée, butterscotch or chocolate pot de crème. Plus wines selected by sommelier Matthew Turner and coffee or tea.
Reservations for the 7 p.m. dinner are available through AIWF at 305-663-9641 or 954-396-3875.
