MIA Kitchen & Bar hosting Dock to Dish dinner pairing June 26

MIA Kitchen & Bar Executive Chef Blake Malatesta will host an interactive “Dock to Dish” pairing dinner on June 26 at 7:30 p.m.  Cost is $60 per person.

The five-course dinner at the popular Delray Beach restaurant will feature fresh catches from Florida’s top fishing towns. Each course will be paired with cocktails made with Afrohead Rum and Misunderstood Whiskey.

The dinner will showcase the fact that environmental stewardship is a daily practice at MIA Kitchen & Bar, where each dish and daily special showcases local ingredients tapped from area farms, ranches, and purveyors. Malatesta’s kitchen also practices a zero-waste policy. His “dock-to-door” program partners with Florida fishermen to source sustainable seafood caught within the last 24 hours.
