I can’t believe the South Beach Seafood Festival is coming up next month! It feels like just yesterday I was at the SOBE Seafood Festival Chef Showdown, on the beach, eating great food, and voting for the best dishes from the top chefs in South Beach. To prepare us for this foodie event, I’m bringing you recipes from some of the renowned chefs participating at the South Beach Seafood Festival 2016.
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 1 hour
The SOBE Seafood Festival means one thing: it’s almost stone crab season again! The South Beach Seafood Festival is the ultimate seafood experience featuring luxury dining on the sands of South Beach. The seafood festival will take place on 7th street and Ocean Drive and will go from noon to 7pm. Plus, ticket price includes all-day open bar! Please keep in mind the ticket price does not include the food. So bring money for the yummies!
Saturday, October 22 will host the 4th Annual South Beach Seafood Festival featuring pop up café’s from the likes of Joe’s Stone Crabs, Naked Taco, Red, the Steakhouse, CJs Crab Shack, Drunken Dragon, A Fish Called Avalon, Naiyara, Poseidon, Toro Toro, Trulucks, and more. Together, 17 restaurants will be serving you right on the sand – it’s four blocks of fun to be exact! Restaurants will showcase an eating experience unlike any other as you stay refreshed with a glass of delicious Kendall Jackson Chardonnay or ice cold Jack & Coke!
There are two types of Festival Tickets and both General Admission and VIP include an all-day open bar available at any of the 30+ added bar locations. General admission starts at only $35; this low price gives guests the opportunity to pick and choose which delicious restaurants to try – all of which are bringing their premium menu items at affordable prices between $5 – $10. This is not a tasting festival; this is an eating festival. Enjoy Stone Crabs, Lobster Waffle Cones, Steak & Lobster Skewers, Shrimp Tacos, Oysters, Shrimp Cocktail, Gyros, Crab Cakes, Grouper in a Bag, Lobster Mac ‘N Cheese and more. But please, don’t go home hungry!
