We’re continuing with our commitment to give you even more to love about our signature event! The Goya Foods' Grand Tasting Village featuring Mastercard Grand Tasting Tents & KitchenAid Culinary Demonstrations will continue to refresh and tantalize your tastebuds with offerings from more than 50 restaurants and an array of wines and libations from Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits - plus, the unveiling of the brand new David Grutman Experience! Remove your sensibilities as you enter the new and improved world devoted exclusively to sampling bold cuisine, stylish wines, carefully creative spirits and watching your favorite Food Network and Cooking Channel chefs, authors and culinary personalities dice it out on the KitchenAid Culinary Demo Stages.
Pace yourself as you take a refreshing stroll through an unending array of scents and tastes in the Mastercard Grand Tasting Tents while celebrating all areas of Miami as participating restaurants will be grouped together in culinary quadrants led by their respective culinary captain, representing distinct districts across South Florida -- from South Miami and Coral Gables to Brickell, Wynwood, South Beach and on into Fort Lauderdale. Fans will continue to enjoy more places to relax and absorb this grand experience -- whether it’s with a cocktail under the shade or your hips swaying to beat of live music and/or DJs throughout the day. For the fourth year, attendees will be able to vote for their favorite dishes and decide which restaurant will win the Miami New Times’ “Best Bite on the Beach” award.
NEW FOR 2017: SOBEWFF® is partnering with David Grutman to bring you The David Grutman Experience at Sunday’s Goya Foods’ Grand Tasting Village! Recognized worldwide for his hotspots LIV, Story and Komodo, Grutman is bringing his signature over-the-top curated experiences straight to the sands of Miami Beach for the first time. The courtyard between our signature Mastercard Grand Tasting Tents will be transformed into a scene developed and ideated by Grutman himself, including food from his favorite South Florida neighborhoods and high energy beats - featuring sounds by INGROSSO, powered by N1CE Cocktails - that his own hotspots are known for attracting. Grutman, who is widely recognized for his energetic hospitality, has helped put Miami on the map with his creative approach to music and good times – and now we’ve tapped his talents for SOBEWFF®! This is one iconic party in the sand you won’t want to miss.
