Mark Militello is taking over the kitchen at 3800 Ocean at the Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Resort & Spa for one night only.

The special James Beard tribute dinner is limited to 18 diners, who will enjoy an eight course tasting menu with wine pairings on Thursday, June 21.

The evening will kick-off at 6:30 p.m. with a welcome cocktail, followed

by a 7:00 p.m. dinner.

Chef Militello and

3800 Ocean's Larry LaValley will interact with guests, walking them

through each course with information on the heritage, pairing choice

and ingredient portfolio of each dish.


The multi-course dinner will feature:



  • A selection of hors d' oeuvres

  • Sheep's milk ricotta gnocchi with crispy artichokes

  • Pancetta wrapped breast of Rhode Island red milk fed chicken breast served with Swank Farms greens, Garrotxa cheese, Agrumato olive oil, and aged balsamic

  • Maine day boat halibut with miso, green tea noodles, and roasted wild mushrooms

  • Slow Roasted Berkshire pork with Swank Farms lettuce, house made kimchee, and spicy sauces
  • Grilled lamb loin with crispy local eggplant, ratatouille, piquillo pepper, natural jus, and eggplant "caviar".

  • Red Dragon Welsh cheddar rarebit, pretzel bread, house-smoked bacon

  • Fromage blanc cheesecake with house made huckleberry sorbet, iced pistachio nougat, and pistachio foam 
The dinner with wine pairings is $85 per person, exclusive of tax and gratuity, with proceeds benefiting the James Beard Foundation silver scholarship drive. Each guest will leave with a sample of 3800 Ocean's house made barbecue sauce as a personal gift from 3800 Ocean and Mark Militello.
