Another experiment successfully concluded – an outstanding dinner with chefs Justin Flit and Matt DePante at their new-ish restaurant in Midtown Miami, Proof Pizza & Pasta. You can see all the pictures in this Cobaya Proof flickr set, and we'll update when recaps are posted. In the meantime, here's the menu from last night:
king crab, heirloom tomatoes, tarragon, pickled red onion
cauliflower, harissa, iberico bellota, roasted pork broth
bucatini, bottarga, lemon breadcrumbs
duck, dried figs, barley, sherry vinegar
beef, salsfiy, herb gremolata
blood orange curd, pistachio, semolina cake
That doesn't include the beef tartare with colatura served on parmesan frico crackers or the clam ceviche they passed around before everyone sat down, or the chocolate sampler (including an excellent macaron ice cream sandwich) they served after, the little take-home goodie bags they gave everyone, or the post-dinner cocktail supplied by the good folks at Afro Head Rum. A big thank you to Justin, Matt and their whole team at Proof, and as always most of all, to the guinea pigs whose interest and support make these events possible.
