Dim Sum Brunch hosted by Pablo Zitzmann and Wilson Tang
Sunday, February 26
12:00 PM - 2:00 PM
12:00 PM - 2:00 PM
James Beard semifinalist Pablo Zitzmann, whose Asian-inspired restaurant, Zitz Sum received the 2022 MICHELIN Guide’s prestigious Bib Gourmand status, isn’t of Chinese descent. (Born and raised in Colombia, Zitzmann proudly grew up in a German/Mexican immigrant household.) And yet you’d be hard pressed to find a chef who is more passionate about Asian flavors – a love for which he developed at an early age and continued to nurture during formative stints in Hong Kong, Hawaii, and Japan. Well, it looks like Zitzmann has finally met his match in Wilson Tang, the seriously cool owner of New York City’s oldest operating dim sum parlor, Nom Wah. (Tang’s family immigrated from China to start the business in 1920.) Join these two pros at Zitzmann’s Coral Gables hotspot as they team up for one of the quirkiest and culturally rich events of the Festival weekend, which charts their very different routes to falling in love with these beloved Chinese delicacies.
