Craving an authentic Mexican dinner under the stars? Rick Bayless is the seven-time James Beard Award-winning chef behind several successful Chicago restaurants, New York Times’ best selling cookbooks, an Emmy-nominated Public Television series, and this year, he returns to the Festival for a dinner tribute to his life-long study and adulation of Mexican cuisine. In fact, even the Government of Mexico has given Bayless the Mexican Order of the Aztec Eagle–the highest decoration bestowed on foreigners whose work has benefitted Mexico and its people. Executive Chef Scott Linquist, the mind behind the mouthwatering flavors and lively ambiance, reminiscent of the best Mexican street food you will ever have, of Coyo Taco and Tequila Bar and the newly-opened Los Buenos by Coyo Taco, is a fellow devotee of modern Mexican cuisine. Together, these two powerhouse chefs will ignite the rooftop, as the beautiful new and eclectic rooftop, The Serena at Moxy South Beach, comes to life with the spirit of Mexico for a night you won’t forget, paired with Mexican wines and mezcal-based cocktails from the Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits portfolio you’re sure to enjoy.
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. We cannot guarantee that multiple tables purchased for the same event will be located next to each other, but will do our best to accommodate this when venue floorplans allow for it.
