Newsy Nuggets: Super Brunch with Blais, wine dinners and a standin-O for Edoboy

Written By Scott Joseph On January 30, 2024

Brunch with Blais

Four Flamingos: A Richard Blais Florida Kitchen will offer Super Brunch with Blais on Sunday, Feb. 11, which happens to be the same day as the Super Bowl. Blais will be part of the starting lineup for the brunch, which will be served from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will include a noshing table and raw bar; slider station, with egg salad and caviar, braised oxtail, lobster roll and others; tailgate station, which will feature signature items from the two participating teams (I’m betting on Kansas City steak on sourdough bread; maybe not); ricotta pancake station; and myriad small plates, such as bacalaito benedict and NOLA barbecue shrimp and grits.

There will be a dessert bar, too, and an option for bottomless bloody marys. Cost is $95; $45 for kids. Make your reservations here.

Later that same evening, if you’re looking for a place to watch Taylor Swift watch football, you can check out the now-open “immersive sports bar” Stadium Club at Caribe Royale. Not sure how they’ll make the Super Bowl an immersive experience unless the servers randomly tackle guests. Could be fun.

Edible Education Experience in College Park will host a meet and greet with Katherine Miller, author of “At the Chef’s Table: A Chef’s Guide to Advocacy,” Thursday, Feb. 8 at 6 p.m., followed by a “La Tavola” dinner prepared by chef Kevin Fonzo. Fonzo and EEE Garden Educator Brad Jones will join Miller in a discussion of some of the book’s topics, including sustainability and advocating for long-lasting changes in the food industry. Cost is $130 per person, which does not include gratuity but does include a copy of the book. Guests may bring their own wine. Reservations – only a few remain – can be made by direct message to Fonzo on Facebook or Instagram.

Norman’s will have its first wine dinner of the year on Tuesday, Feb. 6, with four courses paired with sips from Planeta Winery. Tickets are $240 and can be purchased here.

And don’t forget our next Scott Joseph’s Dinner Party at Rocco’s Italian Grille on March 7. Details here.

Edoboy, the seatless sushi restaurant in Mills 50 District, is on Yelp’s Top 100 US Restaurants 2024, coming in at number 44. Also on the list is The Tiny Turtle (84), a Caribbean and Puerto Rican breakfast spot in Cocoa Beach. It’s tiny, yes, but not too small to have chairs.
