Riding the momentum of the South Beach Wine & Food Festival, De Rodriguez Cuba on Ocean (inside the Hilton Bentley) and Botran Rum is offering a special rum-tastic prix fixe now through April 15.
Foodies can gorge on a four-course menu of rum-infused dishes, created by James Beard Award-winning chef Douglas Rodriguez. Each course is accompanied by a cocktail featuring Botran rum. The cocktails were specifically created for De Rodriguez Cuba's special menu by Tommy Merolla, Botran's director of mixology. The Botran family has been producing rum in Guatemala for more than six decades.
The menu includes Rodriguez's New Times "Best of Miami" award-winning ceviche, so taking advantage of the prix fixe is a must.
Dinner service runs $99 per person. See the complete menu after the jump.
