WhenFriday, May 21
10:00 PM - 12:00 AM
Refreshed with new offerings this year, Croquetas & Cocktails is back for another round of gourmet croquetas accented by a uniquely crafted cocktail experience. We’re bringing you some of the best craft, small batch and artisanal spirits around, combined with numerous iterations of the delicious fried snack, and creating a hip setting at the artistic Jungle Plaza in the Miami Design District. The Miami Design District is a creative neighborhood and shopping destination dedicated to innovative fashion, design, art, architecture and dining.
South Florida darling Eileen Andrade, the talented chef behind West Kendall’s popular Finka Table + Tap restaurant, her croqueta specialist - and brother - Jonathan Andrade, and one of Miami’s top mixologists Gio Gutierrez aka @ChatChowTV, will serve as the evening’s hosts as we celebrate this classic Cuban snack and cap it all off with cocktails specially curated by Gutierrez. Whether they stem from a fine dining restaurant, gas station lunch counter, grocery store, or local bakery, local food authority Sef Gonzalez - better known as the beloved Burger Beast - has tracked down the best in the city and brought them together for this late-night tasting affair. Grab a bite and a sip, sway to the beat of mellow tunes and celebrate the end of the work week during this soirée under the stars paying homage to one of the Magic City’s favorite treats!
EAT. DRINK. EDUCATE.
