ICYMI: A Haute Dinner at the Confi-Dante!
There is no shortage of celebrity chef inspired dinners in Miami and when all is said and done you really need to do something special to stand out. Stand out is what just happened at the Confidante, Miami's Local-Loving Hotel, as they concocted a dinner series that is 1-part culinary, 1-part boozy and all parts yummy. Can we say Tequila flights, and passed bites? All that's missing is an impromptu visit from an A-list, low key celebrity which based on the Confidante's track record, may happen at next month's dinner. Make sure to consider journeying through the Haute gates of the lobby featuring the art work of local legends Skott Marsi and Atomik (come next week) on your way to the 1930s house for your treat.
The Confidante Miami Beach, alongside Bird & Bone’s Chef Richard Hales and Tequila Revolución’s National Sales Director, Adrian Sosa, invited guests to a special tequila pairing dinner on Friday, October 26. The inaugural evening kicked off The Confidante’s new monthly dinner series aptly named The Confidante Dinner Club, which features a specially curated collaboration with a new spirit brand each month. Embracing the warm, welcoming and vibrant glamour of The Confidante, the evening will take place in The 1930s House, a private, outdoor Spanish-style bungalow originally built as a one-bedroom family home. Once located across the street from the Collins Avenue hotel, the structure was picked up by crane and relocated to The Backyard at The Confidante, where it currently resides. The evening features passed hors d’oeuvres and retro-themed welcome cocktails created in partnership with The Confidante’s food and beverage team and Tequila Revolución’s master mixologists. Renowned local chef Richard Hales, Chef/Partner of American-inspired on-site eatery Bird & Bone, showcased a specially curated three-course menu expertly paired with three different expressions of Tequila Revolución.
Chef Hales and Sosa were present to guide guests through the culinary journey, explaining how the flavors of each dish paired with the tequila. As a 15+ year veteran in the wine and spirits industry, Sosa has represented various prestigious tequila brands such as Patron, Sauza, Cazadores and Partida. After the food and spirits journey, guests ended the evening with a social hour complete with a cigar rolling station and open bar.
