In a never-ending quest to rid their space of the bad aura left by the departed Pizza Volante, the good folks of Michael Schwartz's Genuine Hospitality Group and Harry's Pizzeria are hosting a special event showcasing the benefits of eating local in Florida.
Truthfully we're nearly mango-ed out, so it was a pleasant surprise to see the 'local' part of this project will be handled by Brendan Connor, chef and owner of Whisk Gourmet Food & Catering in South Miami, who will be cooking up an a la carte menu paired with craft beers from Florida breweries.
"We are trying to create awareness locally of the Florida-produced beer scene," Connor said.
They're calling this one Beer Brunch. It's slated for Sept. 16 at Harry's and will be the first in a monthly series showcasing local chefs and brews from around the state.
The menu so far is shaping up to include pickled shrimp paired with a Florida lager or hefeweizen; huevos rancheros and chipotle cream with an amber ale or lager; and a short rib bulls eye, which appears to be four-inch pizza dough topped with a nest of short rib with an egg baked inside.
