Pace yourself as you take a refreshing stroll through an unending array of scents and tastes in the Mastercard Grand Tasting Tents while celebrating all areas of Miami as participating restaurants will be grouped together in culinary quadrants led by their respective culinary captain, representing distinct districts across South Florida -- from South Miami and Coral Gables to Brickell, Wynwood, South Beach and on into Fort Lauderdale. Fans will continue to enjoy more places to relax and absorb this grand experience -- whether it’s with a cocktail under the shade or your hips swaying to the beat of live music and/or DJs throughout the day. For the fourth year, attendees will be able to vote for their favorite dishes and decide which restaurant will win the New Times’ “Best Bite on the Beach” award.
The Festival is excited to partner with nightlife and hospitality guru David Grutman to bring you the second annual David Grutman Experience at Goya Foods’ Grand Tasting Village! Recognized worldwide for his hotspots LIV, Story and Komodo, Grutman is bringing his signature over-the-top curated experiences straight to the sands of Miami Beach for the second time. The courtyard between our signature Mastercard Grand Tasting Tents will be transformed into a scene developed and ideated by Grutman himself, including food from his favorite South Florida neighborhoods, and high energy beats by Mike Deuce and ALESSO powered by N1CE Cocktails. Grutman, who is widely recognized for his energetic hospitality, has helped put Miami on the map with his creative approach to music and good times – and now we’ve once again tapped his talents for SOBEWFF®! This is one iconic party in the sand you won’t want to miss.
