Smith & Wollensky Miami Beach rolled out the green carpet on February 25 for a Sunset Soirée sponsored by Ocean Drive Magazine. General Manager Henry Delgado and staff hosted over 700 guests, treating them to food prepared by Chef Dana Brizee and wine and cocktail tastings from our beverage partners.
Guests were treated to a special appearance by Ingrid Hoffmann, celebrity chef, author and TV host of Delicioso on Univision. Hoffman created a “Chicarrones Cod Taco with Chipotle Tartar Sauce” dish especially for the event and partnered with 4 Orange Premium Vodka to develop two signature cocktails–Orange Passiontini and Pineapple Melontini.
Attendees included the cast of the second season of Bravo TV’s The Real Housewives of Miami. Bravo TV filmed the cast for scenes to be featured in the upcoming season premiere.
As part of the special Pre-50th Wine Week reception, attendees were among the first to sample the new Smith & Wollensky “Private Reserve” Sauvignon Blanc handcrafted by Kunde Family Estate.
“Kunde Family Estate is proud to partner with Smith & Wollensky to present this remarkable wine,” said Aaron Smith of Kunde Family Estate, who attended the event to sample the new wine with guests. “It’s a crisp, elegant and fresh wine with citrus, ripe mango and melon notes that pair wonderfully with many of the items on the Smith & Wollensky menu.”
In addition to the Kunde Sauvignon Blanc, guests also sampled the Whispering Angel wine from Chateau d’Esclans. Partagás cigars handmade in the Dominican Republic were cut on-site and available to enjoy.
