Cocoa Beach Uncorked

200 E Cocoa Beach Causeway,
Cocoa Beach, FL 32931
View Website Here


Tickets are now on sale for Cocoa Beach Uncorked, an all new food, wine and craft beer festival launching from the sunny shores of Florida’s Space Coast.

The highly anticipated two day festival will take place June 3-4 on the beach at Alan Shepard Park in Cocoa Beach, a favorite gathering spot for viewing space launches and surfing icons.

More gastronomical than astronomical, Uncorked Cocoa Beach will celebrate Central Florida’s most renowned chefs, restaurants, and breweries in a culinary showcase served with 180-degree Atlantic Ocean views. The event is the east coast sister of the popular Clearwater Beach Uncorked, now in its sixth year and well established as one of the best food, wine and beer festivals on Florida’s west coast.


“Cocoa Beach is the perfect location to launch our new taste fest and showcase the finest food, wine, craft brews and other fabulous culinary treasures of Florida’s east coast,” said Tammy Gail, event producer. “We’re bringing together people with a shared interest for what will be an unforgettable weekend for attendees, partners and exhibitors alike. I fully expect Uncorked Cocoa Beach to be a sellout.”


Celebrating its first year in Florida’s Space Coast, Cocoa Beach Uncorked will play host to foodies, wine lovers and craft beer aficionados who long to wiggle their toes in the sand as they enjoy some of the area’s most delectable offerings.

A 20,000 square foot Grand Tasting Tent will feature a vast array of mouthwatering taste experiences for discerning palettes. A percentage of event revenue will benefit Florida Restaurant & Lodging Association and the Brevard County Humane Society. 


In addition to the Grand Tasting Village, the two-day event will feature a variety of VIP and interactive experiences, tastings, cooking demonstrations, and competitions between some of the area’s most notable and award winning chefs and restaurants.


Uncorked Cocoa Beach is backed by a distinguished roster of presenting sponsors and partners, including Florida’s Space Coast Office of Tourism, City of Cocoa Beach, Publix, Hilton Cocoa Beach Oceanfront, Fishlips Waterfront Bar & Grill, Florida Restaurant & Lodging Association, Victory Casino Cruises, Cocoa Beach Hotel & Lodging Association, Lowe’s and the Cocoa Beach Regional Chamber of Commerce.

Tickets are $55 per person, per day for general admission and $75 per person, per day for VIP access.

Guests who purchase a VIP ticket will enjoy one hour early admission to the Grand Tasting Village, where they will find extra seating for relaxation and mingling while sipping and savoring Moët & Chandon bubbly in the VIP Chalet.

Mango's Tropical Cafe Orlando

8126 International Dr.
Orlando, FL 32819
(407) 673-4422

View Website Here

Mango’s Tropical Cafe, now in its 25th year on South Beach’s iconic Ocean Drive, has hosted thousands of private parties for individuals, families, offices, as well as celebrity functions and special events for large multinational corporations. 

Mango’s Orlando, which opened in 2015, is a dream venue that changes the game on International Drive. It is a decadent design across 55,000 square feet that creates an epic experience people will always remember.

Many of you who follow my blog, know that I am often in Miami...especially during football season. I have been to the original South Beach location several times over the years, and it is always a spot I bring friends and family members to. The original Mango’s is iconic. If you watch TV, movies, sporting events, you have seen the neon lights of Mango’s more than once in your life.

Mango’s Tropical Cafe Orlando is the largest restaurant and banquet facility & nightlife destination on International Drive. Located near the Orange County Convention Center and all the I-Drive Hotels & Resorts, it’s the perfect place to entertain your guests. The Orlando Mango’s features lavish, unique private party areas and can accommodate up to 2,000 guests, at once.

The world famous Mango’s Dancers like the ones from South Beach, are carrying on the tradition at the Orlando location. The shows are full force and come alive with a dazzling array of lights, music, and talented performers who love what they do.

Mango’s dinner & show is a three course, prix fixe dining experience and is served nightly. The world famous Mango’s dancers along with a live band and DJ’s are sure to entertain. This show also features the Michael Jackson Tribute, The Celia Cruz Experience, Brazilian Samba Show, The Cuban Conga Show (featuring a customer Conga Line), and many others.

We were treated to the Aioli Chicken Lollipops with mango BBQ sauce for an appetizer, and they were pretty tasty little treats.

The homemade beef and chicken empanadas with Sriracha sauce are full of spicy and crunchy goodness.

You can't go to Mango’s and not have a drink. Any flavor of Mojito you get here will be delicious. The Pineapple Mojito is on the left, and the Coconut Mojito is on the right. Both were excellent.

 
My guests entree was the Florida Red Snapper sauteed with garlic and white wine sauce over mashed potatoes and vegetables. This was a good dish, but could have used less breading.

My entree choice was the Churrasco with mojo sauce, black beans and rice and sweet plantains. This was about as tropical as you can get and the churrasco was nice and tender.

Our first dessert to sample was the Chocolate Layer Cake. This was a very rich and moist slice of cake that is sure to satisfy your chocolate cravings.

The second dessert we tried was the Cheesecake. Although simple in concept, this cheesecake was delicious and really hit the spot for a dessert choice.

If you are looking for something different to do in Orlando, check out Mango’s. This place is way bigger than the original South Beach location and still produces the sounds and the vibe that made the original famous. Come for dinner and a show, or after dinner, bring your group of friends to celebrate an exciting night at Mango's, which is aiming to be the spot to go out in Orlando.

Every night of the week, enjoy incredible live music, amazing DJs, and a rocking dance floor across eight bars. You'll have an epic time like no other. Parking does fill up fast, so if you see a long line to get in, just park at the I-Drive 360 garage. There are plans already in the works to build a large parking garage next door that will more than accommodate everyone.

Mango's is open from 6:00 pm until 2:00 pm everyday except Sunday, as they open at 5:00 on Sunday.

Hyde Beach Kitchen + Cocktails

111 S Surf Rd
Hallandale Beach, FL.

(954) 699-0901  
View Website Here

Hyde Beach Kitchen + Cocktails is one of the latest openings of the renowned SBE group. SBE, for those not in the know, is a global hospitality and entertainment company helmed by Chairman and CEO Sam Nazarian which comprises a thriving collection of award winning hotels, residences, restaurants and nightlife destinations. 

When it comes to the business of mixing food and fashion, you'd be hard pressed to find a company that does it better then SBE. Some of their partners include designer Philippe Starck and photographer Matthew Rolston. The Chef’s SBE works with are some heavy hitters too,  like José Andrés, Katsuya Uechi, Danny Elmaleh and Michael Schwartz, (who has won the prestigious James Beard award) to name a few. Of course they have locations all over, but most of the company's ventures are in South Florida, Southern California and Vegas.

As I’ve said before, the areas around Hallandale and Hollywood beach have always been great beach destination towns, but have lacked anything that could really be called fine dining. Of course it goes without saying that the area has always paled in comparison to the beach and dining scene in South Beach as well.


Hyde Beach Kitchen + Cocktails is really a big step in the effort of bringing to Hallandale Beach, the same elite style of service and signature brand of "cool" that has become synonymous with the Hyde brand, as seen in South Beach, Las Vegas and on Hollywood's Sunset Strip. The building itself is an evolution in Oceanside entertainment, and is certainly in line with the SBE brand and what they convey. The space is three stories tall with three distinct floors of indoor, outdoor and beachfront event space.
 

The approachable beachside first floor offers quick bites, fresh pressed juices, and a rejuvenating spa. The second floor is home to Hyde Beach Kitchen + Cocktails where diners can enjoy the fresh seasonal and contemporary American cuisine by award winning Chef Danny Elmaleh. The third floor features a secluded poolside lounge offering distinct dishes and craft cocktails. Hyde Beach is somewhat of a tapas restaurant, in the idea of ordering single plates of food to sample, but the plates here are large and are meant for sharing. A couple dining could easily order three or four separate items and more than likely end up with leftovers.

Chef Danny Elmaleh takes you on a contemporary culinary journey mixed with local fresh flavors and hand-squeezed cocktails at three full service bars. The menu features New American cuisine with signature dishes like Wasabi Tuna Tartar, Rock Shrimp Tacos, Pumpkin Butter Rolls, Oxtail Bucatini, Branzino with cannellini beans as well as decadent Raw Bar for starters. 

Pumpkin Butter Rolls are a must have item at Hyde. These are perfect to share with maple butter and rosemary and salt, but after one bite...you may not want to share.

Ceviche is made with yuzu (a type of Japanese citrus), lime, serrano chili, tomato, red onion, cilantro and fresh seafood. For another unique touch, for dipping you are offered, tortilla chips, plantain chips and cassava chips.

The Smoked Mushrooms we tasted were extraordinary and delicious. They were so good in fact, I could give up eating meat and just have these as a replacement.

Pulpo Gallego or Galician Style Octopus is a tapa that is served all over Spain today. Although Hyde Beach did a wonderful job in presentation, It is a very simple dish with cooked octopus served with boiled potatoes, olive oil and sweet Spanish paprika. I'm not the biggest fan of octopus, but this one at Hyde Beach is certainly worth eating again. 

In addition to being loaded with very fresh and delicious crab meat, the Crab Cake at Hyde Beach is served atop a house made tartar sauce with dill pickles.

We sampled quite a few cocktails during our visit, as one would be required to do at an establishment with cocktails in its name. Everything we tasted was fresh uniquely flavored, but our favorites were the Hibiscus Punch on the left and the After Sunset Margarita on the right. Every cocktail on the list here features freshly muddled ingredients, house made syrups, freshly extracted juices and of course premium alcohol. 

Green Kale is a salad made with kale, tofu, kimchi vinaigrette, pumpkin seeds, golden raisins, and sesame seeds. This was probably one of the best salads I have had. The kimchi vinaigrette gave it a distinct Asian flavoring and the pumpkin and sesame seeds gave it a nice crunch.

The Oxtail Bucatini was fabulous. The ox tail is red wine braised and served atop house made noodles with garlic bread crumbs and marjoram.

Branzino is the name of a European sea bass that is very popular in Northern Italy. This fish was cooked perfectly with a nice sear and a crispy outside and a flaky and moist inside. The Branzino sat atop cannellini beans, cherry tomato, nicoise olives, and artichoke.

Hyde Beach calls this a Classic Banana Split with a few hidden touches. One of the hidden touches is an awesome Belgian waffle that just set this dessert over the top. I will never look at banana splits the same now, and will be unimpressed if it does not compare the one at Hyde Beach. Yes...it was that good.
Hyde Beach Kitchen + Cocktails accommodates up to 650 guests with a private dining room, outdoor patio, poolside lounge, and beachfront property for private events.
 

Just as the new hotels and condos are giving way to a new and improved Hollywood beach and a new Hallandale beach, the restaurants are coming around too. Hyde Beach Kitchen + Cocktails is sure to be a favorite among beachgoers, foodies and nightlife connoisseurs alike, as this hybrid destination looks to charm guests with enticing energy and innovative cuisine.
 

Dinner starts at 6:00 pm daily, and they close when the party dies. If you get a chance and are staying in the area, I highly recommend a visit to Hyde Beach Kitchen + Cocktails. Chef Danny Elmaleh and the staff here have done an excellent job of bringing flavor, flare, style and great dining to Hallandale Beach.

Beachwalk Resort

2602 E. Hallandale Beach Blvd.
Hallandale Beach, FL 33009
(954) 266-0147

View Website Here 

In the past couple of years, and especially in 2015, the strip of road that runs up and down Hollywood beach and Hallandale beach has been undergoing major renovations.

Hollywood beach has always been a great beach town with an awesome boardwalk that stretches 2.5 miles, but the area has always needed some upgrades in regards to lodging and dining to truly make it a relevant and exciting beach town that could compete with the likes of Miami’s infamous South Beach.

There have been a few new resorts that have opened in the area this past year, like Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville resort and a few others, but none of them are bringing the style and class that the all new Beachwalk Resort is offering.


After opening its doors on May 1, 2015, Beachwalk Resort is offering guests an unparalleled experience that is on par with what you might find in South Beach. The resort has breathtaking beach and city views, with access to a private beach club at the new Hyde Beach Kitchen + Cocktails, and they even offer complimentary shuttle service to major hotspots in the area.

Rising 33 stories above the water, just one short block from the beach, the Beachwalk Resort lies at the very center of the most iconic recreational, residential, shopping, dining, and entertainment paradise on earth. One part land, one part sea, the Beachwalk Resort offers leisure travelers the Best of Both Worlds.
 
Located on the Intracoastal Waterway between Miami Beach to the south and Ft. Lauderdale to the north on Hallandale Beach Boulevard, the resort is one easy block away from the beach. This was one of the views from our balcony.

Our one bedroom /one bath suite was 738 square feet and had access to the oversized balcony that features stunning views of the Intracoastal Waterway and the downtown skyline. The balcony adjoins both the master bedroom and living room in every suite. The master bedroom features a king bed and additional sleeping is available in the sectional sofa.

 
This is truly a state of the art fully equipped kitchen. You will not find micro refrigerators and useless kitchen equipment at Beachwalk Resort. All appliances are stainless steel, and the cabinets are fully stocked with cooking utensils and dishes.

All suites feature contemporary Italian furnishings, floor to ceiling windows and a spacious living room with access to the over sized balcony.

Yes, even the bathrooms here have a designer element. Our bathroom was very spacious and offered room for everyone to get ready with no crowding.

Upon arrival, you're greeted with a sleek and sophisticated lobby, reminiscent of world traveling. The interior is by Italian design Pininfarina, and it's complemented by curated works of art from the personal art collection of the developer, Jorge M. Perez, the CEO and founder of The Related Group. If you are an automotive enthusiast such as myself, then you are familiar with the name Pininfarina. They are an independent Italian car design firm and coachbuilder in Cambiano, Italy founded in 1930. Pininfarina was employed by a wide variety of automobile manufactures such as Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, Peugeot, FIAT, GM, Lancia, and Maserati, to name a few to design vehicles.

Beachwalk Resort has a fitness center with a view so you can maintain your workout routine while on vacation. This is a fully equipped fitness center with over 1,000 square feet of space that offers machines, free weights, and gorgeous views of the infinity pool.

Speaking of that infinity pool, Beachwalk Resort has an infinity edge pool that overlooks the beautiful Intracoastal Waterway and Hallandale Beach. The pool area is conducive to spending an hour or an afternoon lounging poolside on a chaise lounge, or in a cabana for a more intimate experience.

Whether the mood calls for dining in, at the resort's Beachwalk Bistro & Market, on the beach or elsewhere, guests are given a variety of culinary options. Chef Jaime Magana, who cross trained in Amsterdam at La Rive, a two Michelin star-rated restaurant, offers over 15 years of experience at Beachwalk Resort as the executive chef. He's in charge of all F&B on property offering a fresh, seasonal menu, including breakfast, lunch and dinner. For those wanting a quick to-go item, the bistro offers a variety of freshly made sandwiches, salads and refreshments.

A simple but elegant breakfast offering at Beachwalk Bistro.

Families and couples alike will discover that the Beachwalk Resort offers a vacation experience wholly distinct from the other resort choices in the area. As the newest resort in the Hallandale-Hollywood Beach area, the Beachwalk Resort offers sophisticated European inspired design, spacious, home-like suites complete with fully equipped kitchens and in-unit washers and dryers, amenities, complimentary access to Hyde Beach Kitchen + Cocktails, plus easy air and driving access for all domestic and international travelers.

Guests will also enjoy the proximity to South Florida’s world renowned shopping, dining, entertainment, casino and racing attractions. The location, midway along South Florida’s Broward-Miami Dade oceanfront corridor and just a block from the beach, means every guest can enjoy more vacation for the money. But what really sets Beachwalk Resort apart is how they cater to each individual with a uniquely proactive brand of service designed to anticipate and fulfill the needs of every guest.

Beachwalk Resort is not only a perfect location to enjoy all that South Florida has to offer but also provides the perfect venue to get closer to the people that matter most to you. Whether you are staying with your entire family, a group of dear friends, or your significant other, Beachwalk Resort allows you to spend quality time. Relax on the beach with your friends, enjoy an intimate dinner, or take a shopping trip... the choice is yours. By the end of your stay, you’ll leave feeling closer than ever.

Eats and Beats : WMC Edition

WMC is here and Electronic Dance Music ( EDM ) is about to become a way of life for South Beach dwellers and visitors for 2 weeks all over Miami. We love EDM, but we also love food too, and after all of that dancing, you need to refuel. Here are some great ideas of ways to enjoy the best of both worlds...Eats and Beats in South Beach.
We’ve put together a survivor’s guide of some cool restaurants to enjoy with decors and menus that are reminiscent of genres of EDM because well, ya gotta eat at some point.
House Music -  Bagatelle Miami
House is one of the most popular and recognizable forms of EDM and so is Bagatelle in the culinary world. With outposts in New York, St Barth, Los Angeles, Sao Paulo, St Tropez, and Dubai- Bagatelle Miami just recently opened to the delight of globetrotters, neighbors, foodies, celebrities and tastemakers everywhere. Signature dishes include Tartare de Thon and Gnocchis Truffes a la Parisienne. (2100 Collins Avenue)



One of the genres that's been around the longest, techno  injects soul into its deep digital sounds. Similarly Siena Tavern housed in an historic Art Deco building in the heart of South Beach offers diners an experience that is simultaneously comfortable, vibrant and social. Signature dishes include the Wagyu Beef Meatball and Housemade Gnocchi. (404 Washington Avenue)


Trance - Seaspice
Trance is one of the most emotional jerking genres because of its building up of melodic tunes and its repetitive synths and no other location encapsulates those feelings more than Seaspice on the Miami river.  Patrons can choose arrive by boat and sit by the water with the stunning Miami skyline or inside under the one of a kind installation by Artist Carlos Betancourt. Signature dishes include Australian Rack of Lamb and Alaskan King Crab Linguini. (422 NW North River Drive)
Down Tempo -  Coya
With slower paced tracks steeped in dance music, the relaxing and often sensual or romantic feel of Down Tempo is a perfect soundtrack for Coya. Coya is a journey of the senses designed to take guests on a culinary adventure exploring the multi-dimensional flavors of Peru. From the food and drink to the menu and décor, Coya invites both local residents and seasonal visitors of Miami to join in its celebration of an ancient, vibrant culture and cuisine. Signature dishes include Calamares Fritos con Ocopa and Solomillo de Res. (999 Brickell Avenue)




Drum & Base - Cecconi's
Emerging from England, Drum and Bass’s obvious emphasis on the drum work and bass-line gives it its name. Similarly, Cecconi’s is inspired by the original London location which was founded in 1978 and resides in the recently renovated Art Deco Sovereign Hotel, now Soho Beach House. Cecconi’s offers superior service that entices the discerning tastes of its fellow Miami denizens and savvy visitors alike. Signature dishes include Plin agnolotti and Parpadelle with Duck Ragu. (4385 Collins Avenue)




Moombathon - The District
Moombahton is an eclectic mix of house music and Raggaeton.
