experiment #61 - Cobaya 27 with Chef Jimmy Lebron

Another experiment in the books! This time, we headed over to 27 Restaurant in the Freehand Hotel on Miami Beach (also home to the great Broken Shaker bar, and host to Experiment #29 with Chef Brandon Baltzley) to let Chef Jimmy Lebron and crew do their thing. You can see pictures from the dinner in this Cobaya #61 at 27 Restaurant flickr set), and read recaps at Food For Thought and The Chowfather. Here's the menu Chef Lebron put together, along with cocktail pairings from bar manager Randy Perez.
