Wynwood Kitchen & Bar (WKB), Miami’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 Miami’s graffiti and street art scene, kicking off with Miami-based, Santiago Rubino.
“WKB 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,” 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. “I 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,” says artist Santiago Rubino.
The menu for the evening was created by Aguilar and Rubino, and reflects the artist’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 purée, chimichurri
Throughout the evening, a variety of Rubino’s work will be available for purchase at the GoShop, a retail emporium located onsite at the Wynwood Walls, featuring an inventory of artists’ books, bags, and one-of-a-kind creations.
