Chicken Parm Hero at Macchialina

This week, Macchialina will serve chef/owner Mike Pirolo's chicken parm hero for one night only. Made with tender organic chicken cutlets enrobed in a breading laced with garlic, fresh herbs, and porcini powder, each sandwich is draped in a sharp caciocavallo cheese and marinara sauce with a crisp parmigiano frico. Every order is served with Italian chips, made with fried zucchini, eggplant, and herbs. Dig into the hero ($16) and pair it with a glass of red wine ($24). Due to the popular sandwich's limited availability, interested diners must reserve a sandwich when reserving a seat. Seating for the hero will be limited to the bar area. Tuesday, September 24, at Macchialina, 820 Alton Rd., South Beach; 305-534-2124; macchialina.com.
