Miami New Times’ Iron Fork celebrates its 11th year on Thursday, October 4, 2018, at the Hyatt Regency Miami. This annual tradition has been one of the culinary highlights of the year where dining enthusiasts can enjoy dishes from some of the finest restaurants in South Florida. The sprawling event will extend into the James L. Knight Center’s world-class theater and entertainment venue next door.
This year’s Iron Fork will be exponentially larger, gathering culinary creations from more than 60 of South Florida’s luxury and fine-dining restaurants, including Amore de Miami, Toro Toro, Taula Fresh Mediterranean Grill, Boss Burger N Brew, Mason, Finka Table & Tap, Amelia’s 1931 and Hard Rock Cafe.
In addition, New Times is proud to announce its continuing partnership with Miami Rescue Mission. For almost a century, its outreach centers have been housing the homeless across South Florida. Today the mission’s Miami-Dade and Broward centers serve more than 1,300 men, women, and children each day. Last year, the organization served more than a million meals, many of them to hungry children. It also houses approximately 800 people in residential, life-changing programs. Guests can participate in a special raffle during the event, with 100 percent of all proceeds going to support the cause.
As in past years, celebrated chef Allen Susser will oversee the Chef Competition, a fierce fight to the culinary finish between two of Miami’s hottest toques. The competitors will be announced soon! Also continuing this year is the Michael Shikany Knife of Excellence Award; two Johnson & Walesstudents will compete for funds raised to continue their education in culinary school.
The epicurean event will take place from 7 to 10 p.m. for general admission ticket holders and will bring together thousands of young professionals, local businesses, and foodies for an evening of gourmet food selections, tasty libations, and live entertainment. Guests who prefer a more intimate dining experience can purchase VIP tickets, which include entry to the event one hour early, at 6 p.m., and access to a private VIP bar and lounge area with complimentary Estrella Damm beer, VOGA Italia wine, and Banyan Reserve vodka.
