If you’re in Miami this October, celebrate National Breast Cancer Awareness Month with special fare at one of these luxe locales.
When it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month in Miami, even the famed Fontainebleau Miami Beach takes part. Through the end of October, diners can support “Bleau Goes Pink” with a limited-time-only $39 prix-fixe dinner menu at the hotel’s raved-about restaurants: Hakkasan, Scarpetta, Michael Mina 74 and La Côte. With a part of the proceeds benefitting cancer research, the party’s just getting started — Fontainebleau’s Chateau Tower glows pink throughout October, from dusk to 10PM.
For this month only, head to Daniel Boulud’s dB Bistro Moderne and save lives with sweet treats. Order the blackberry vacherin — a dessert of crispy meringue, pecan biscuit, raspberry crème fraîche sorbet and a pink white-chocolate ribbon garnish — and $1 from each dish purchased will support the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
When you’re craving a pink drink on Miami Beach, head to The Social Club, at The Surfcomber, for one of two tasty, rose-hued cocktails with a cause. Priced at $13 apiece, grab the bar’s Will You Daiquiri Me, made with strawberry-kiwi-infused Flor de Caña Silver rum, lime, and sugar; or the Legroni, a mouthwatering mix of Espolon reposado tequila, Solerno blood orange and Campari. For each of these drinks purchased, $1 benefits the American Cancer Society.
The Forge has a new leading lady, and her name is The Wonder Woman. With a portion of each drink purchased benefitting the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, this haute twist on the classic Pink Lady is a refreshing combination of fresh lemonade, grapefruit bitters, Tanqueray 10, egg whites, house-made cherry cream, Bordeaux cherry and 23-karat edible gold flake.
At South Beach’s 660 at The Angler’s, $1 from select, girly-pink cocktails sold during the month of October goes to the American Cancer Society. The first drink, “Think Pink” is a delicious combination of rum, hibiscus cordial, lemon juice and creole bitters; while the “Ribbon” contains grapefruit vodka, Aperol and cherry bitters, and is topped with sparkling wine.
