MEAT MARKET SUMMER DINNER SERIES KICKS OFF MAY 22, 2013Cocktails & Cuisine to Benefit Victims of Boston Marathon Tragedy

Touted by Condé Nast Traveler as one of Miami’s “Buzziest Restaurants,” Meat Market, South Beach’s sizzling contemporary steakhouse, with a bustling bar scene and top notch cocktail program, is rolling out their Summer Dinner Series – an array of cocktail and wine dinners that have been sold out affairs since first launched in 2011.  To kick things off, Executive Chef/Co-owner Sean Brasel has teamed up with award-winning mixologist Ezra Pattek to host a special Culinary & Cocktail Dinner on Wednesday, May 22, 2013.  In an effort to give back to victims of the Boston Marathon tragedy, Brasel and partner David Tornek will donate a portion of the proceeds to The One Fund Boston, Inc. – the organization formed by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Tom Menino dedicated to helping the victims and their families.

The dinner, priced at $75 per person (plus tax and gratuity) will feature five sumptuous courses of Brasel’s creative contemporary cuisine, paired with inventive libations curated by Pattek, winner of Esquire’s Woodford Reserve Manhattan Competition and an instrumental force in Miami’s cocktail movement.  The dinner begins promptly at 7:30 p.m.; seating is limited and advance reservations strongly suggested by calling (305) 532-0088.
