Celebrity Chefs Heat Up Miami Beach

sobewffThe 15th annual South Beach Wine & Food Festival doesn’t take place until February 2016, but it’s already shaping up to become the most exciting one yet. Over eighty events are scheduled to be held during the four-day festival, and it will host many star chefs like Spike Mendelsohn, Francis Mallmann, and Dale Talde. Each of these individuals has visited the “Magic City” of Miami during previous occasions, but this time they will be taking things a step further by opening exciting new restaurants throughout South Florida.

Chef Qui Pao, James Beard and Top Chef winner, will be opening the restaurant Pao, while Dale Talde and Top Chef judge Tom Colicchio will be opening Talde and Sunny’s, respectively. The latter two restaurants will be located on Miami Beach Collins Avenue, not far from the Z Ocean South Beach hotel. Alex Guarnaschelli, the winner of Iron Chef America and a judge on the Food Network’s show Chopped, is also setting her sights on opening her restaurant, Nautilus Cabana Club, which as the name suggests would be located in the nautilus area of South Beach.

The Z Ocean Hotel South Beach, a luxurious all-suite hotel, is located near Collins Avenue and South Beach’s popular Ocean Drive. We offer 79 luxuriously appointed suites and a fantastic array of amenities including a rooftop terrace, hot tubs, the “Z Spa” and beach club.
