The Setai Prepares for the 2010 South Beach Wine & Food Festival

As Miami gears up for the 2010 South Beach Wine & Food Festival, The Setai Hotel on Miami Beach is preparing two exciting culinary events to satisfy the hautest palates. Executive Chef Jonathan Wright and his globally renowned team will be presenting their signature Asian flare and flavors at two extraordinary culinary events.

As one of the most majestic and regal boutique hotels in the city, and one of our personal favorites, The Setai continually strives (and succeeds) to go above and beyond on every occasion. The upcoming Wine & Food Festival is no exception, and the Asian-inspired luxury hotel’s executive chef, Jonathan Wright, is participating in two memorable events that you certainly don’t want to miss if you’ve become accustomed to experiencing only the finest in dining.

Dim Sum & Disco: On February 27, Chef Wright Chef Wright partners with fusion-forward Chef Ming Tsai, Chef David Munoz Rosillo of DiverXo in Madrid, and Chef Tim Cushman of Miami’s Tropical Chinese Restaurant to provide a unforgettable night of disco music and breathtaking bites. While the DJ spins 70s and 80s disco hits, the team of chefs will cook up Asian small plates like Malaysian Laksa with Crab Claws and Slow Cooked Duck Eggs in Peking Duck Broth to pair with inspired cocktails like the Asian Picnic, a mixture of smoked pork belly infused Jack Daniels Bourbon, chile syrup and citrus juice. The event costs $150 and will take place from 11 p.m. until 2 a.m. at The Grill at The Setai (2001 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach).

Wine Spectator’s Best of the Best: On February 26, Chef Wright will join 40 renowned chefs from across the country, including David Burke and Laurent Tourondel, to showcase a tasting of their favorite recipes, enhanced by an array of wines and, for the first time, champagnes (specially presented by French Ambassador Pierre Vimont). Chef Wright, well-known for his Asian-fusion creations, will surprise patrons with unforgettable palate teasers featuring unusual combinations and exotic spices. The event costs $350 and will take place from 7:30 p.m. until 11 p.m at the Fontainebleau (4441 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach).
