If you're among the socialites and art enthusiasts visiting Miami this week for Art Basel, let me fill you in on a little secret about where to wine and dine.
Steps away from the world-class art museums and glittering exhibitions, Red, the Steakhouse is introducing a “Red Basel” menu masterpieced by Chef Peter Vauthy on the basis that cooking, the Red way, is art.
Featuring only the finest Certified Angus Beef Prime on and off the bone, Red’s menu is a hybrid of classic cuisine and the freshest seasonal ingredients. Everything from the sauces to garnishes is prepared from scratch.
In addition, the menu is complemented by a bar boasting a selection of over 500 wines, including its own private blend. From personal experience, I can tell you that their private blend red is exquisite.
The family-style tasting menu features five carefully selected courses that represent Red’s award-winning concept, including fresh stone crabs popular in South Florida this time of year.
As an added perk, Red is offering “Red Basel” diners special pricing on Red’s 2007 “Diamond Mountain Vineyard” Napa Valley blend for $150 a bottle.
