Todd Erickson breaking out the beer at Haven.
While it is better known for inventive cocktails than craft beer, Haven South Beach is catering to lovers of brew with its upcoming beer pairing dinner.

Executive chef Todd Erickson will collaborate with Brewery Ommegang for the dinner on Tuesday, August 26, at 7 p.m. The affair will offer 30 guests the opportunity to taste chef Erickson's summery menu, paired with the brewery's Belgian style ales, all crafted in Cooperstown, New York (home of the Baseball Hall of Fame).

Chef Erickson said the idea for the dinner came about when Haven revamped their beer menu, adding Ommegang's Three Philosophers to the roster of craft brews. "With us being a gastrolounge, we thought, why not do a beer pairing. Ommegang is a great brewery, and it was a chance to do a summer pairing with all these braised summer dishes. I mean, who doesn't like beer?"

Don't have plans for Saturday night? Patpong Road, the bar founded by restaurant group 50 Eggs and located above Khong River House, is celebrating its first anniversary with free well and signature Laidee drinks till midnight. Laidee drinks come in a cool plastic bag and mix the Chinese spirit Bye Joe with tropical juices and fruit. The weekend is looking up all of a sudden.

John Kunkel is a man of many restaurants, but Patpong Road was his first foray into the wonderful world of cocktails. Inspired by his travels to Bangkok and its notorious red-light district, Patpong Road has been a favorite among locals this past year. In fact, it was New Times' choice for best new bar.

We chatted with Kunkel about Patpong's first year and its future.

Conventional forms of meat consumption are so passe in our post- Andrew Zimmern world. Ever since Bizarre Foods came on the scene, budding foodies have been trying to outdo themselves in the consumption of exotic and stomach-churning meals. Along with insect larvae, and durian, offal (a euphemism for organs, glands, and innards usually discarded during butchery) have come back on to the culinary scene.

While they might not be the most attractive proteins, these overlooked delicacies are often staples of cultures around the world. Here are some of Miami's best blood and guts dishes, lovingly prepared and served for your gluttonous consumption.

Refreshing and buzzy.
Have you been outside? It's freaking hot out there. The only thing August in Miami is good for is sitting on a beach or your backyard and having an ice cold lemonade. Or a cocktail. Or both.

There's really nothing better than a cold glass of tart, sweet lemonade. Unless, of course, you spike it. That's when the party really starts. And, since the weekend forecast promises to continue to be steamy, we suggest making a pitcher or two of these boozy lemonades, created by mixologist and brand ambassador David Brogan.

Ten Best Chicken & Waffles in Miami

Categories: Best of Miami

Everybody likes chicken and waffles. How could you not? This dish is having a moment, with good reason. The perfect combination of savory and sweet means you don't have to choose one over the other. In the past couple of years, we've seen this duo pop up in brunches all over town and even claim its proper place on several menus. The soul food staple has origins in Harlem circa 1938, when Wells Supper Club gave gospel singers and jazz performers who'd missed out on dinner but didn't quite want breakfast the best of both worlds.

Two regulars at Wells -- Herb Hudson and Gladys Knight -- couldn't get enough, so they decided to open institutions dedicated to the fried bird and square piece of dough. If you've been to L.A or Atlanta, you know that ordering chicken and waffles is a religious affair. At Roscoe's House of Chicken and Waffles in Hollywood, the name says it all. On the East Coast, Gladys and Ron's Chicken and Waffles boasts a line out the door every day beginning at 9 a.m.

Miami isn't so far behind. Lines out the door at a few places can be attributed to chicken and waffles. What follows are the top ten places where sweet meets savory.

Pub-Shaker Miami Spice Pop-Up: Pubbelly and Broken Shaker Collaborate

Categories: Miami Spice

Photo by Hector Torres
Every year when the culinary clock strikes Miami Spice, the Pubbelly Boys have something cooking besides their own three-course, prix-fixe deals. Last year, they joined forces with sushi master Makoto Okuwa for a one-night only event that sold out. The year before that, friends Giorgio Rapicavoli and Jose Mendin kicked it in the kitchen in the first Miami Spice pop-up.

We assumed this year's collaboration was the first of three mash-up chef dinners in which Mendin and Brad Kilgore of J&G Grill gave foodies a glimpse into their menus with six courses. We were wrong.

Pub-Shaker, a special one-night only collaboration between Broken Shaker chef James Seyba and Mendin takes place next Wednesday, August 27, at Pubbelly. And that's not all. Bar Lab Boys and the mad scientists behind the Broken Shaker -- Elad Zvi and Gabriel Orta -- will be mixing cocktails to pair with every course.
