Emmy and four-time James Beard Award-winning chef and TV personality Andrew Zimmern is back where he belongs (at the Festival, of course!) for this opulent Korean barbeque-style brunch at COTE, the Michelin-starred and James Beard Award-nominated KOREAN STEAKHOUSE™ that opened in Miami’s Design District in early 2021 under the helm of proprietor Simon Kim and Executive Chef David Shim. After making a red-hot debut with their New York City flagship location (which remains a standout amidst the city’s ever-crowded culinary scene), the pair has brought their considerable talents to the Magic City, crafting a menu that stays true to the original concept while infusing each dish with a Latin and South American edge. For this hyper-elegant SOBEWFF® brunch, Shim and Zimmern will turn up the heat to create a fiery, interactive dining experience that showcases dry-aged meats of the highest quality (prepared on the restaurant’s smokeless state-of-the-art tabletop grills), with richly flavored side dishes to match. Don’t bother making other brunch plans -- simply put, this one is a cut above the rest.
