Food, Take Me Away

If Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden is our city’s answer to Central Park (except, um, much less central), then consider the Kampong our very own secret garden. Tucked away along Biscayne Bay in Coconut Grove, the locale offers lush foliage and breathtaking waterfront views. It’s a stunning place with transportive powers. And this evening, the city’s finest chefs have descended to celebrate and support an annually anticipated culinary experience amid all of that natural beauty. Be prepared to ooh, aah, and beg for more from 5 to 8 at Bali Ha’i at The Kampong.

With such an exotically named event in such a lush venue, expect only the most remarkable culinary morsels to be on hand. Inspired creations will be served by chefs from Abokado, Café Sambal, The Setai, Jaguar, Ortanique, and the River Oyster Bar, among others. But you can also get some good ol’ sausage thanks to Dogma, and while you’re noshing and browsing the astounding array of luxury auction items – including major artworks, cooking classes with famed local chefs, and plush hotel stays – you’ll be raising funds for culinary scholarships to support Miami’s next generation of up-and-coming gourmet masters. Tickets cost $135, and 70 percent of that is tax deductible. Score! Visit for more details.
