Taste of Brickell Food and Wine Festival 2012

The 2nd Annual Taste of Brickell Food and Wine Festival presented by The Continental Group was held this past weekend [March 24 & 25th 2012] with extreme success. Launched in March 2011 by Cynthia Bettner the Taste of Brickell Food and Wine Festival, which benefits the Kristi House, has significantly grown from 15 local high-end restaurants to over 50 participants.

From the timeless to the trendy, there’s something for every foodie’s palate. Participating restaurants included Perricone’s Marketplace & Café, Chophouse Miami, Garcia’s Seafood Grill and Fish Market, Edge Steak & Bar at Four Seasons, SCALINA Ristorante, El Gran Inka, Altamare, Taverna Opa, Halfmoon Empanadas, and Lucky Clover Irish Pub to name a few! Small bite samples, as well as wine & beer, priced between $1-$8.

I had a wonderful time walking around and exploring all the different little bites each station had to offer {ok, so not every restaurant…but a lot!} Definitely an event I’ll attend again.

My stand outs {personal favs}:
Brickell Irish Pub: flour tortilla // Korean BBQ pulled pork // honey ginger // Kimchee cole slaw // cilantro sour cream // crispy wontons $3

Halfmoon Empanadas: spinach & cheese empanadas $3

Gordon Biersch: BBQ pulled pork // cole slaw // fresh roll $5
