Best Eats and Drinks This Weekend: From Clambake to Beer Benefit to Pop-Up
In a world where plastic surgery is as easy as running to your nearest Whole Foods and picking up a quart of milk, we have one thing to say: America, girl, you are looking good for 237 years. And with virtually little work done!
Bill Wisser Nutella pizza at Lucali.
Really, she doesn't look a day over 200.
So while celebrating the independence of our great country with fireworks, friends, and family, we'll also eat and drink.
New Times named Lucali the best pizza in 2013. New Times food critic Emily Codik says it's the best pizza in Miami. So what, pray tell, is holding you back from visiting? Is it the price? OK, we'll give you that. Prices are a little steep. But if you're smart about your visit, it can cost the same as any other restaurant in South Beach. So the only difference would be that you'd pay the same price for the best pizza in town. Hell, that sounds like a great deal.
The Forge Restaurant will host its weekly Friday hand-crafted clambake from 6 to 11 p.m. The prix fixe, priced at $49 per person, features a selection of dishes, including steamed clams and mussels, crispy chicken wings, oyster po'boys, and New England clam chowder to start; New England-style entrées such as grilled Maine lobster with candied garlic, grilled salmon with basil mashed potatoes, palm hearts and greens salad, grilled and sliced hanger steak with tomato jam and leek chutney, and pomegranate barbecue chicken with cheddar grits and tomato chutney. For dessert, choose from a creamy and rich banana bread pudding with butterscotch sauce or lemon panna cotta. The $49 includes roasted corn on the cob and boiled Red Bliss potatoes for the table to share, and two-for-one draft beers throughout the evening.
