The countdown to Miami Spice has officially begun! Last night, I attended a preview dinner hosted at the gorgeous J+G Grill inside the St. Regis Bal Harbour Hotel. Chefs Bradley Kilgore (J+G Grill), Antonio Bachour (J+G Grill), and Jose Mendin (Pubbelly) showed off some of the dishes that will be on their menus this upcoming Miami Spice season. In case you don’t know what Miami Spice is
and you live under a rock, click HERE for more information. I’m serious. You NEED to know all about Miami Spice! You can also click HERE, HERE, and HERE for some of last year’s highlights! Our night began with several canapé offerings and a refreshing mojito in the luxurious bar area. Once escorted to our seats, our wine was decanted promptly and dinner service officially began.
The staff at J+G Grill excelled (as usual) in delivering a perfectly orchestrated dinner. I’m not sure, but I would almost bet they also had something to do with that beautiful rainbow that appeared on the horizon halfway through dinner. Ha! It’s too bad I couldn’t capture it with my camera! I loved all of the beautifully plated and executed courses. The amount of detailed work that went into these dishes clearly shows just why Chef Kilgore, Chef Mendin and Chef Bachour are South Florida’s créme de la créme. How lucky are we to have them call Miami their home? I don’t know about you, but I am really looking forward to the season’s official kick-off on August 1st. The only problem will be deciding where to dine first!
