We’re thrilled to welcome back, on Oscar Sunday no-less, David Burtka and Neil Patrick Harris to SOBEWFF® to headline this Taste Fort Lauderdale Series brunch overlooking the pristine beaches just outside The Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale. Burtka is not only a Broadway star, but a trained chef, a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu, who has worked with chefs like Mario Batali, Cat Cora and Thomas Keller. Harris, the Emmy Award-winning television star who has also appeared on the coveted Time 100 list and one of Entertainment Weekly’s Entertainers of the Year, is also known as a theatre personality and director - a winning combination of accolades which has brought him into homes nationwide multiple times as the host of the Tony Awards, Emmy Awards and Academy Awards. The scene for casual luxury on the Gold Coast set inside the city’s first AAA Five Diamond hotel, the newly renovated property will be the perfect spot to get down with brunch and a Bloody Mary. More than a dozen of Broward’s best joints will serve of freshly elevated brunch fare to set your tastebuds in motion. Whether you were out late the night before or haven’t yet gone to bed, we’re certain this will be the perfect way to savor Sunday by the beach!
