Wynwood Kitchen & Bar (WKB), Miamiâ€™s Global-Latino dining destination featuring dynamic art, innovative cocktails and live music, is launching a series of chef/artist collaborative dinners, teaming up Executive Chef Miguel Aguilar with celebrated Wynwood Walls artists. In a feast for the eyes, the series incorporates culinary expertise with the masterminds behind Miamiâ€™s graffiti and street art scene, kicking off with Miami-based, Santiago Rubino.
â€œWKB is known for its location in the heart of Wynwood, where art and food are fused every day, so it only made sense to bring the two together for a unique dining experience,â€ said Executive Chef Miguel Aguilar. As the first installment of the collaborative dinner series, the evening promises to push the boundaries between conventional supper clubs and artist previews. â€œI have a deep appreciation for food. It can say a lot about who you are. Most of the inspiration for my art comes from nature and history, so my diet of plant-based foods and seafood, allows me to start each day fresh,â€ says artist Santiago Rubino.
The menu for the evening was created by Aguilar and Rubino, and reflects the artistâ€™s diet and favorite dishes with the spices and flavors of his native Argentina. Guests will also receive a commemorative menu designed and signed by Rubino and Aguilar.
Menu is as follows:
Smoked Tuna Empanadas
Capers, tomatoes, escabeche
Avocado Romaine Salad
Toasted almonds, yellow tomatoes, balsamic sesame dressing
Grilled Chilean Sea Bass
Boniato purÃ©e, chimichurri
Throughout the evening, a variety of Rubinoâ€™s work will be available for purchase at the GoShop, a retail emporium located onsite at the Wynwood Walls, featuring an inventory of artistsâ€™ books, bags, and one-of-a-kind creations.
