SOBEWFF®’s annual ode to fried chicken and champagne is getting a facelift and folks, WE ARE HERE FOR IT. Join Miami favorite and fried chicken aficionado Michelle Bernstein as she hosts this epic event celebrating one of the most beloved dishes in the culinary canon. (Fun Fact: You can find Bernstein’s famous fried chicken recipe in Festival Founder and Director Lee Brian Schrager’s best-selling cookbook, “Fried & True.”) For this year’s iteration, taking place in Miami Design District’s expansive Jungle Plaza, we’ve curated an exceptionally impressive roster of more than a dozen chefs eager to serve up their shatteringly crisp creations alongside a host of heavenly homestyle sides and desserts. When it comes to flavors and textures, be prepared to sample it all – from crunchy classics to newfound favorites inventively spiced, battered, fried, and sauced to gleaming golden perfection. And don’t think for a second that we’ve forgotten about the bubbles! This year, we’re showcasing six high-end champagne houses to ensure that free-flowing bottles of bright, effervescent bubbly are never in short supply. You’d be wise to top off your Saturday evening with this Festival staple that brings delicious new meaning to the term, “golden hour.”
Experience the culture and flavors of Miami's premier neighborhood and shopping destination during the Miami Design District event series, taking place exclusively during Festival weekend. The series will be anchored in the iconic Jungle Plaza and feature events that celebrate the District’s innovative fashion, architecture, design and world-class dining.
All net proceeds from the Festival benefit the students of the Florida International University Chaplin School of Hospitality & Tourism Management who assist Festival organizers in all aspects, including Festival planning, logistics and overall execution.
