How about we leave everything behind and move to the Caribbean? Who’s with me? Sounds great, but you don’t have to pack a bag to get that laid-back feel. A South Florida chef is turning Sunday into a celebration of the islands.
Kitchen magician Chef Irie is bringing his talents to the Newport Beachside Hotel and Resort in Sunny Isles on Sundays for a Caribbean brunch.
Chef Irie: “It’s gonna be beautiful. It’s gonna be tasty. It’s gonna be delicious. It’s gonna be food on fire.”
Getting up for the task was no problem at all.
Chef Irie: “The Caribbean is a great inspiration for me. I’m always thinking about dishes from different Caribbean islands, different cultures.”
The buffet brunch is basically a taste tour of the islands.
Chef Irie: “So if you came to any of the Caribbean islands, you’re gonna find variations of these dishes represented throughout.”
No brunch would call itself Caribbean without jerk chicken, potato cakes and sweet chili pasta, and that’s just the start…
Chef Irie: “Mojo pork loin, we’re gonna serve that with mango curry applesauce. We have bacalao Ragú, which is salted cod and potatoes with a little marinara sauce mixed in.”
While diners are digging into their delicious dishes, they’ll also be digging some hot beats.
Chef Irie: “My man, Brass King, The Brass King selector, he’s gonna be spinning out. The music’s gonna be wild, wicked dope.”
The brunch is a major deal — $49 with bottomless mimosas, $34 on its own. It’s an offer you can’t and won’t refuse.
Customer 1: “Ahh, it’s amazing and very delicious and very nice to eat this.”
Tricia: “Their Sunday brunch is awesome. You have the beautiful pool, you have the ocean in the background, and then you have the Caribbean food to go with the ambiance.”
