Four restaurants in one night? Miami residents might be familiar with the pub crawl, a night of organized drinking in which participants walk from bar to bar and are offered drink specials and usually a free shot or drink at each stop. How about a dish crawl?
These are already taking place in other cities such as Chicago, San Francisco, and Brookolyn, as well as Florida cities Tampa, Jacksonville, and Orlando. Now it's our turn.
Dishcrawl Brickell takes place Wednesday, April 17, beginning at 7 p.m. Attendees will visit four area restaurants within walking distance of each other, for the chance to sample items from each restaurants' menu.
Normally, participating restaurants are kept a secret until 48 hours before the event, but Short Order was able to get an exclusive to report to you one of the four restaurants that Dishcrawlers will visit next Wednesday.
Edge Steak & Bar at the Four Seasons hotel will be entertaining local foodies next week and Executive Chef Aaron Brooks is prepared. "Dishcrawl is a unique opportunity for culinary aficionados to come together and experience the best of Brickell. At Edge Steak & Bar, we'll be showcasing some signature dishes that particularly reflect our culinary inspiration in the Latin influence with bright and fresh flavors."
Dishcrawls are put together by local organizers, known as Dishcrawl Ambassadors, and Vicky Kei is in charge of the 305. Says Kei, "Dishcrawl brings together members of the community over food by helping people get to know the chefs and owners behind the local businesses. It's a wonderful way for people to get out and explore a neighborhood while enjoying great food, meeting folks with similar interests and making new friends."
She adds, "Dishcrawl allows people to sample the best of what Miami's fast-growing food scene has to offer by providing a dining experience like no other where you get to meet the chefs and talented teams behind those dishes."
