Tastemakers Make Tracks to Mizner Park

Two days of food, booze, and entertainment at Mizner Park -- it's not exactly Woodstock, but you won't leave hungry or thirsty. 

Boca's toniest mall hosts its annual Tastemakers at Mizner Park progressive food, wine, and cocktail tasting next week, from 6 p.m. until you can't eat and drink no mo', Tuesday and Wednesday, September 14 and 15. Ten restaurants will participate, dishing up nibbles paired to wines or cocktails and throwing in some special offers for holders of VIP tickets as well. 

For a complete list of the restaurants and their offerings, go here. And to purchase tickets, priced at $25, go here.

But just to give you an idea of what's coming, Max's Grille will plate up shredded duck confit with chili-lime barbecue sauce in a crispy goyza shell with kimchee vegetable slaw and mango sauce, to be washed down with a vodka-watermelon-cucumber cocktail. Truluck's will offer tastings of fresh Jonah crab claws with mustard dipping sauce, alongside the excellent Poema sparkling wine. And the Cheese Course will serve a trio of Spanish cheeses paired to selected Spanish wines.
