As part of a week-long series of benefit events, Chef Jeffrey Brana will check in as guest chef at chef/owner Joshua Marcus' Chow Down Grill tomorrow evening, Thursday, April 7, to help raise funds for Common Threads. Brana will create a seven-course tasting menu featuring locally caught shrimp, locally grown tomatoes and vegetables, grass fed beef and triggerfish with seatings at 6 and 8:30 p.m.
Gastropod will also be parked outside from 6 to 10 p.m. and 5 percent of the proceeds will go to charity.
Tickets are $125, and the proceeds are aimed at a specific purpose: Current funding for Common Threads has allowed for four Miami-Dade County schools to be a part of the program (which offers kids from low socio-economic areas access to hands-on cooking classes and nutritional education). Team F.O.U.R. from The Chamber of Commerce's Leadership Miami Group and participating restaurants such as Chow Down Grill are aiming to add a fifth school to the program.
