Porcao Farm to Grill in Brickell: Cart Service and Fresh Flavors (Photos)

Raw cart rolls around for you to ogle at all the things you want most.

Ever had duck pastrami? Probably not. Change that fact by ordering this pass-around appetizer dish that takes duck pastrami and lays it atop cantaloupe. The sweetness of the fruit is a perfect balance to the saltiness of the pastrami. It's the exemplification of opposites attracting.

Take care not to walk on the garden. This is where Porçao grows all of its herbs and some of its edible flowers.

Cocktails are made tableside via molecular gastronomy. Grey Goose, fresh puréed strawberry, lime, and pomegranate juice are mixed and frozen to their coolest possible point without taking away any of the flavors.

The result is this lovely cocktail -- a vivo tojo -- topped with a frozen edible flower and a berry skewer. It tastes like a boozy, fresh slushie.
