This past week, Fooq’s chef Victoriano Hernandez paired up with Ariete’s chef Michael Beltran in Coconut Grove to showcase dishes soon to be featured on their Miami Spice menus. I won’t be covering this year’s season as I have in the past, but I couldn’t resist supporting these two favorites.
This will be the 18th Miami Spice Restaurant Program by the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau. Here’s what to expect…
Ariete continues to slay hard, and their newly released menu requires your prompt attention. It’s also been established (because I said so- ha!) that the Candy Cap Mushroom Flan is a MUST, but don’t sleep on the Stracciatella, Jerked Calabaza, and Sour Orange Semifreddo additions: Miami sazón for days! Coñooooo!
Fooq’s brought their A-game to this mash-up. I can’t think of a single dish I didn’t love, but the Tamarind Glazed Porchetta main stole my heart. My only menu complaint? I needed at least six more spoonfuls of the Pistachio White Chocolate Crémeux finale. It’s been four days, and I can’t stop thinking about this dessert.
