The event, expected to blow the minds and tantalize the palates of attendees, featured 15 marquee chefs each creating a dish to pair with a select Brewery Ommegang beer, ultimately escalating the ecstatic flavors of each culinary creation.

Five Cubed introduced food lovers to great beer, and beer lovers to great food, in a stimulating social setting, held on the 7th floor of 1111 Lincoln Road with a 360 degree breathtaking view of Miami Beach. Guests sampled food prepared by 15 culinary purveyors and complemented by Brewery Ommegang beer. Five Cubed is the event where premium Brewery Ommegang beer and spectacular cuisine collide.

The 200 Five Cubed VIP guests enjoyed a 5-course sit-down dinner, immediately preceding the main event, to be served at a royal table. Debuting at 6:00 p.m., dinner will be prepared by Sean Brasel, Alex Chang, Johnny Sheehan, Adrianne Calvo and Brad Kilgore, each preparing a specially selected dish to pair with a Brewery Ommegang beer.

Starting at 8:00 p.m., the main event showcased the culinary talents of all 15 chefs with Brewery Ommegang selections at tasting stations in the sky high above Miami Beach. The evening featured the chic sounds of DJ Danny Stern. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Little Lighthouse Foundation.

“Light”
A celebration of the music of Kevin Keller and the creative relationship shared with Ray Sullivan, Miami Contemporary Dance Company’s Artistic Director.

On Friday, Feb. 6 at the Colony Theatre on Lincoln Road, I joined other dance performance art lovers to the premiere of Miami Contemporary Dance Company Presents

 LIGHT

 Miami Contemporary Dance Company (MCDC) presented their first production of the year, Light , featuring three original choreographies by Artistic Director Ray Sullivan, with music by New York composer Kevin Keller: Shadow Light and the WORLD PREMIERE of Luz x 3. The evening highlighted the collaboration between Choreographer and Composer, and will take you on a journey through three performances. The lyrical choreography of Shadow Light explored shadow and light through movement, Not in My Name sheds light on the unconquerable human spirit and Luz x 3 examines the abstract path that light illuminates, as it intertwines with the captivating movements of MCDC’s stellar dancers. The costumes and sets were designed by internationally acclaimed designer, Jorge Gallardo and light design by the renowned Carla Iparraguirre.

In the heart of Lincoln Road sits a place that tourists and locals alike have been frequenting for over a decade. That place is Maya Tapas and Grill

http://mayatapasandgrill.com

You can have breakfast brunch/lunch or dinner. Their superb service and attention to detail is what sets them apart from the other tourist traps on Lincoln Road. This past Sunday the family and I decided to try their breakfast. We were seated promptly and given a choice of seats. Being late summer we chose a seat underneath one of their many giant fans they use to keep the heat at bay. We asked our waiter what are the most popular dishes on their breakfast menu. He advised their sausage omelette was great as was their eggs benedict made w/smoked salmon. Our little one opted for their fruit salad. Our refreshing mimosa and bellini kept us company while waiting for our meal. My daughter even took a quick visit to the art gallery on Lincoln Road opposite Maya’s. In prompt fashion our food came. Along with cranberry and peach juice. Peach juice is very hard to find in a restaurant and it was delicious. Everything was well prepared and quite good. The fruit salad was uber fresh and looked like a work of art , albeit a disappearing work of art !!

We all were all fueled up and raring to go attack the shops after our meal. Looking for a breakfast that has quality and a reasonable price with great service to boot ? Check out Maya. Tell em SobeSavvy.com sent ya

@Yardhouse New Location #Miamibeach Early Preview

images2

Today, I had the pleasure of attending the sneak preview of the new Yardhouse Restaurant located near Lincoln Road in South Beach. As a frequent diner at their Gulfstream Casino location, I was elated when I learned of their newest location a mere 5 blocks from my home. Per their website, http://www.yardhouse.com
The restaurant took its name from the 3-foot-tall glass containers originally designed in Great Britain and used to hand stagecoach drivers after a long journey by horse drawn carriage. Each Yard House location features a center island bar and an endless fleet of tap handles ranging from classic lagers to more obscure ales. The glass-enclosed keg room is essentially the pulse of the operation housing as much as 5,000 gallons of beer at a time. They have 124 different varieties on tap.Three to five miles of individual beer lines stretch overhead from the keg room to the island bar maintaining a constant temperature of 34-36 degrees keeping the beer consistently fresh and perfectly chilled for every pint. Guests can sip their favorite draft beer from the popular half-yard, traditional pint or six pack sampler. While Beer is their main elixir, do not overlook their food offerings. I call it gourmet bar food, but even that does not do it justice. The food is good. I sampled everything from Grilled Korean Beef tacos, Spicy Thai chicken pizza to mouth watering MAC + CHEESE 2 which is comprised of chicken breast, applewood bacon, wild mushrooms, cheddar, parmesan, campanelle pasta and truffle oil..yummy yummy yummy. Never been ? Get there. They open this Thursday Feb 27.

Here is my photo recap of the sneak preview
