Food & Wine Names David Mokha of Hakkasan Sommelier of the Year
Hakkasan shrimp dumplings will get paired with the proper wine.
Congrats to David Mokha, Fontainebleau Miami Beach' wine director, for being named Sommelier of the Year by Food & Wine magazine. Mokha's nod was aimed specifically at his work with Hakkasan's wine program -- when it comes to pairing grapes with intricate Cantonese cuisine, Mokha can (think how many contrasting flavors end up on the table during a typical meal here).
David currently oversees the wine program for all restaurants at the Fontainebleau. More proof that Hakkasan is one of this city's real gems.
