Sugarcane Raw Bar and Grill (Miami)
Despite this and thanks to Facebook I felt like I knew his wife and family. We had previously planned on a grand meal... and for heaven's sake we had one. Mike drove us down to Miami and we ate at Sugarcane Raw Bar and Grill. We had reservations for 8, 4 adults and 4 teens. We were promptly seated and mike proceeded to order the entire freaking menu in multiples of 4. We had other diners stopping by and ogling our spread, it was decadent and spectacular with the teens feasting as only teens can do. Here are most of the dishes.
We started with fried pig ears
crunchy and delicious, followed closely by edamame and fried shisito peppers
Food began arriving in rapid succesion after this, croquetas and bacon wrapped figs
a seafood tower, multiple views!
Then steamed pork buns (delicious) and ceviche
Cured meat plates
beef tartare with a quail egg
Wagyu beef sliders with a fried quail egg on top (also spectacular)
Bone marrow with veal stew trimmings
grilled squid and octopus
chinese barbecue spare ribs
Duck confit on a waffle, topped with a fried duck egg
and finally dessert, torrejas, rhubarb pie, ice cream
The whole affair was monumental and incredibly fun. Every dish was outstanding and the company supreme.
Hope not to go 25 years before the next get together.
