Calling all Miami-Dade residents to join us for this all-star dinner celebrating the 305’s finest culinary talent - and curated by none other than Zak Stern!
Baking all-star and local culinary super-personality Stern – otherwise known as Zak the Baker – has gathered some of Miami’s hottest chefs for an intimate dinner experience that is guaranteed to bring the heat! Stern, whose flagship namesake eclectic bakery is located in the heart of Wynwood, is known for his unwavering commitment to producing top-quality, fresh and delectable bites.
Joining Stern will be Chefs Luciana Giangrandi and Alex Meyer, fellow 2020 James Beard Award semifinalists (Best Chef: South), and the masterminds behind Boia De, one of Miami’s most buzzed about restaurants. Giangrandi, having cooked at world-renown Carbone and award-winning Scarpetta, brings her own unique, Miami-influenced flavor to her culinary ventures, and Meyer has a resume that boasts stints at big-name eateries like Animal Restaurant in Los Angeles, CA to The Nomad in New York, NY where he served as sous chef.
Cooking alongside this talented trio, will be Festival first-timer, Carey Hynes, the chef behind Jaguar Sun in Downtown Miami. Hynes, known for upping the bar-food game, is often praised for curating a soulful and satisfying menu at the much-loved dining locale. Together, this hyper-local quartet will serve up an incandescent dinner reminiscent of the Magic City, under the starlit eaves of Lot 6 (the pop up dining location from the founders of Jaguar Sun) and perfectly paired with wine pairings from the Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits portfolio.
To offer the safest experience and adhere to each restaurant’s unique seating capabilities, tickets will be sold in the specific table configurations listed at checkout.
