Michael Mina‘s famed Bourbon Steak restaurant in Aventura kicked off its new weekly Bourbon & Blues nights with a live performance from renowned South Florida artists Albert Castiglia and Graham Drout.
While the blues-duo struck popular chords on their electric guitars, diners filled up the restaurant to sample mouthwatering Kobe beef steaks from the woodburning grill, fresh seafood, signature duck fat fries and blues-inspired additions to the menu including chicken and waffles, beer-battered grouper, barbequepulled pork sandwiches and crab beignets.
“We couldn’t have been more thrilled with the evening,” said John Riccardo, general manager of Bourbon Steak. “Bourbon & Blues is what Bourbon Steak is all about– great energy, award-winning food and outstanding service in a relaxed ambiance. We invite everyone to come out and join in the fun.”
Diners also received a 25% discount on the restaurant’s extensive bourbon and American whiskey selections that can be enjoyed four different ways-neat, on the rocks, as a Manhattan, or sour. Plus, those that came early got half-priced signature cocktails at the chic bar in lieu of Raise Your Spirits, a popular new social hour.
Bourbon & Blues is showcased every Wednesday from 7 to 10 p.m. and is sure to become a fast favorite in Aventura.
For locals hoping to beat the work week blues, too, Raise Your Spirits is offered Monday through Friday from 6 to 8 p.m. and features half-priced drinks, reduced-priced appetizers off the bar’s time-saving menu and complimentary butter truffle popcorn. What’s more, guests can also catch a wine tasting with Sommelier Matthew Turner on Tuesdays through Fridays, starting at 6 p.m.
Bourbon Steak continues to receive rave reviews from both critics and locals alike, and has accumulated numerous accolades including “Best Steak in America” by Esquire magazine and “best steakhouse in town” by The Miami Herald. The restaurant is located off the main lobby of the legendary Fairmont Turnberry Isle Resort & Club at 19999 West Country Club Drive in Aventura. Open to the public, hours of operation are Monday through Thursday from 6 to 10 p.m. and Friday through Saturday from 6 to 11 p.m., closed Sunday.
