We’re so lucky to have a museum like PAMM right here in the heart of our neighborhood. Don’t even get us started on how excited we are about the Frost Science Museum – we can barely contain our excitement and have already been TWICE this week! PAMM is home to some amazing art exhibits and starting next week they are upping the ante by creating a pairing menu at onsite restaurant, Verde, in honor of the new Toba Khedoori exhibit created by the Australian artist of the same name.
Beginning May 11, Verde at Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) will be offering a special three-course menu made by Executive Chef Kaytlin Dangaran that translates the artist’s unique use of negative space, dull colors, and precise draftsmanship in each dish. In her translation, Chef Kaytlin creates a menu featuring deep flavors, complimenting Khedoori’s use of charcoal and dark, minimalistic colors in her work. To start, guests can enjoy the Snapper Ceviche with squid ink aioli and calabrian chilis. As the main entrée, guests will have the Blackened Quail with smoked eggplant and blistered heirloom tomatoes, which represent Khedoori’s frequent depiction of rendering commonplace objects familiar yet decontextualized. The meal ends with Mascarpone Cheesecake with black sesame brittle, paying further homage to Khedoori’s use of desaturated colors, as well as her commitment to the process of working by hand.
THREE-COURSE PRIX-FIXE MENU ($27):
squid ink aioli, calabrian chilis
smoked eggplant, blistered heirloom tomatoes
black sesame brittle
