There are few culinary destinations that have the kind of staying power of The Slanted Door, Charles Phan’s world-class Vietnamese restaurant that opened in 1995 and has remained a darling of critics and diners alike ever since. (The restaurant now boasts two outposts in San Francisco and San Ramon and a soon-to-open third location in Napa.) The James Beard Award winner is largely credited with elevating the Southeast Asian cuisine in America with his innovative interpretations of classic Vietnamese fare that taste equal parts fresh and familiar. For this transportive dining experience, part of our new SOBEWFF® Pop-Up Series, Phan will serve up his aromatic dishes alongside the team behind one of Miami’s most cherished culinary institutions -- Tung Nguyen, Lyn Nguyen, and Kathy Manning’s Hy Vong. (Devotees of the much-loved Hy Vong can think of this dinner as two pop-ups in one)! These trailblazing women, who co-authored the profoundly moving memoir Mango and Peppercorns, are bringing their own distinctive culinary approach to the evening’s menu, which will feature the fragrant, complex flavors that are the touchstones of Vietnamese cooking. Hosted at SGWS Wynwood, Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits’ modern-industrial hospitality center, this feast of the senses will find its roots in the exquisitely calibrated combination of sweet and savory and in the process, remind you that in life, balance is everything.
