Shining a spotlight on Asian culinary culture through festivals in five key US markets, New York, Los Angeles, Miami and San Francisco, Luckyrice Festival will head to Miami on November 30 when foodies can enjoy Asian cuisine and cocktails from celebrity chefs at the SoHo Beach House. Sponsored by Bombay Sapphire East, the festival will feature exotic cocktails featuring their new East Gin.
Luckyrice is an “integrated media and marketing company with a big appetite for Asian-style cuisine and culture”. Based in Manhattan, Luckyrice works with chefs and restaurants in the U.S. and abroad to bring an Asian culinary experience to North America.
The company’s Culinary Council Members include celebrity chefs like Masaharu Morimoto, Eric Ripert, Jean-Georges Vongerichten, Zakary Pelaccio, Anita Lo, Daniel Bouloud, Anthony Bourdain and more.
Founder Danielle Chang told The Miami New Times, “I’m super excited about brining Luckyrice to Miami, which is such a culturally diverse and sophisticated city with tons of great Asian restaurants. Even though Miami doesn’t necessary have a large Asian population, it’s remarkable that so much for the city’s best dining and bars are Asian-inspired – from Katsuya to Hakkasan and beyond.”
The Miami installment of the Luckyrice Festival will be hosted by Susur Lee of Top Chef Masters and Douglas Rodriguez of De Rodriguez Cuba.
The festival will include an Asian-inspired tasting menu with dishes by Todd English, Hakkasan, Susur Lee and Douglas Rodriguez. There will also be special cocktail creations courtesy of the Broken Shaker, Cooper Avenue, Filthy Foods and more.
Chang also told The Miami New Times, “I’m also thrilled that we’ll be taking the event to the SoHo Beach House and creating unique environments on the beach, in the tiki hut and by the pool. We’ll have eight top chefs working side by side with some of Miami’s best bartenders creating food and cocktail pairings.”
Miami’s Luckyrice Festival begins at 8:30 p.m. on November 30. VIPs are welcome at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets are priced at $88 for general admission and $150 for VIPs.
