Area 31 Common Threads Tasting Menu

I'm a big fan of what Chef Reidt is cooking over at Area 31 and this sounds like a fantastic meal and deal. Plus, they are donating $5 from each tasting menu ordered to a great cause so you are also doing some good while you stuff your face...  Chef Reidt delivered a great Cobaya dinner recently and I'm sure this will not disappoint.  See you there!!! 

The Tasting Menu is Back!
Beginning October 1st

Chef Reidt is bringing back Area 31’s popular nightly tasting menu.
A portion of the proceeds of the Tasting Menu will be donated to Common Threads
, a national nonprofit organization, with roots in Miami, whose mission is to educate children on the importance of nutrition and physical well being.

The October Menu features:

Swordfish Tartar
Quail Egg, Crispy Chicken Skin and Truffle Caviar

Seared Foie Gras
Smoked Blueberry, Crispy Serrano and Ginger-Lemongrass Crumble

Lionfish and Confit Duck
Cider Braised Apples, Red Cabbage, and American Bourbon

Spice Crusted Lamb Loin
Pumpkin, Coconut and Hani’s Goat Cheese

Caramelized Paer Cremeaux
Walnut Brittle, Peppermint and Blue Cheese Ice Cream

The Tasting Menu will be available nightly for $60 per person or $95 per person with wine pairings.
Area 31 will donate $5 from each menu sold directly to Common Threads.
To learn more or to make a reservation please call 305.424.5234 or book online.
