The 3rd season of chef/restaurateur Jose Mendin’s acclaimed guest chef series, Mendin & Friends, kicked off in high style last month with two sold-out events with none other than world-renowned Chef Massimo Bottura. With its decidedly international scope this season, the 2018 season is positioned to be full of not-to-be-missed events. Enter internationally-acclaimed star Chef Rodolfo Guzman, the celebrated chef/owner of one of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants Boragó in Chile. Guzman joins Mendin for the February edition of Mendin & Friends, which is being curated in conjunction with Gluttonomy.

On Tuesday, February 20, in the heart of the hottest week for food and drink connoisseurs in South Florida, guests will be able to join Mendin and Guzman at a special, cocktail reception featuring a welcome drink, an array of passed bites curated by Mendin and a book signing of Boragó – Guzman’s personal collection of fascinating narratives about Chilean geography and ingredients. The book – available for purchase at the reception – displays sketches of some of Guzman’s dishes and outlines of his creative processes. Boragó introduces readers to the pleasure of Chilean culture and cuisine through gorgeous photographs of the country’s scenery and carefully-curated shots of Guzman’s gastronomy. Tickets are limited and priced at $50 per person (excluding service charge and tax) and will take place at Habitat’s chic cocktail bar and lounge, Elements, located on the mezzanine level. Start time 8PM.

On Wednesday, February 21, Guzman and Mendin will go into the kitchen of Mendin’s acclaimed new restaurant Habitat at 1 Hotel South Beach, for a special dinner. The exclusive multi-course event will feature dishes by both chefs as well as collaborative efforts, all paired with select wines. Seating is limited and tickets are priced at $350 per person (exclusive of tax and service). A brief cocktail reception will begin at 7PM; guests will be seated at 7:30PM sharp.

“One of the greatest benefits of Mendin & Friends is getting to cook with people I respect and admire and getting to spend time with them in the kitchen,“ says Mendin, who launched the series in 2015 at Pubbelly Noodle Bar. “I’m a big fan of Rodolfo and very excited to give him a platform to showcase his cuisine in Miami.”

Tickets for both events can be purchased at The remainder of the 2018 season is in development but guests can look forward to upcoming dinners with celebrated chefs Mitsuharu ‘Micha’ Tsumura and Mauro Colagreco, among others. Additional guest chef names, dates, and details forthcoming.
