Fusion

without comments

Fusion is the forming of a new taste by matching and mixing two or more different established tastes to create a totally new entity. This idea of fusion is a very important concept for a Chef, as fusing creates an entirely new outlook on the subject of cooking. This is what the Executive Chef of The Forge Restaurant | Wine Bar means when he states that he “prefers the term “American-Fusion” over American Cuisine, given the cultural influences of the various regions of the country. “It’s more about a community of food,” says Dewey. “We take cues from Creole, French, Cuban, Asian, and so on, to create amazing dishes.”" America is a melting pot of cultures and Chef Dewey LoSasso takes his inventive cues from the cuisines of these cultures and creates a menu of delicious mélanges at The Forge Restaurant | Wine Bar.

Thanksgiving At The Forge

without comments

Thanksgiving is a very important holiday for Americans. It is a huge family moment and people fly all over the country to be with their loved ones.  If you are in Miami and prefer to go out for Thanksgiving dinner you will be treated like royalty at The Forge. Haute Living, an on line journal and blog for luxury lifestyles and sophisticated readers  published :

If you are not enjoying Thanksgiving dinner at home this year, we would suggest spending your holiday at The Forge Restaurant and Wine Bar. While a home-cooked meal is nice, this year The Forge will be hosting an intimate dinner, starting at 6 p.m., for those who prefer to be served, rather then serve on Thanksgiving. The Forge is an iconic locale in Miami, once known for its exclusivity and additionally noted most recently for it’s exquisitely revamped menu. In addition to its over 300,000 vintage wines, The Forge was once the stomping ground for legendary figures such as former president Richard Nixon and actor Richard Burton. Today, The Forge is a continued success, with loyal patrons such as Jennifer Lopez. “Phenomenal food is our number-one priority. It’s what we live for; it’s our reason for being.” –Shareef Malnik, owner of The Forge Restaurant and Wine Bar
