Two Chefsâ€™ 11th Marked With 10-for-10
In 1994, Two Chefs was a combination cooking school and gourmet retail outlet in South Miami. Two years later chef/owners Jan Jorgensen and Soren Bredahl opened the cozy, 100-seat restaurant at the same site. Soren has since returned to Denmark, the wine list has expanded, prices have gone up a bit, and the spirits collection has grown into Miamiâ€™s best, but otherwise Two Chefs is still turning out pretty much the same homespun American food with modern, global, often upscale twists. Jorgensen, the remaining Dane, is marking his bistroâ€™s 11th birthday by offering 10 of his most popular dishes for $10 each. The special menu will include lobster bisque; carpaccio with black truffle croquette and caper berries; escargot pot pie; shiitake and goat cheese flatbread; BBQ meatloaf with horseradish mashed potatoes; and Two Chefsâ€™ signature chocolate soufflĂ©.
The eleven day â€ś10 for 10â€ť begins Monday, September 10, and runs until Friday, September 20. Two Chefs is located at 8287 S. Dixie Hwy., South Miami; 305-663-2100. Two Chefs Too is being readied to open at NE 123rd Street in North Miami. --Lee Klein
