Sunny Isles Beach bridges locally-sourced rural lifestyle with urban sophistication at Symphony of Flavors

(Friday, December 27, 2019) — Sunny Isles Beach, in partnership with Taste of Redland, is introducing Symphony of Flavors, an exclusive farm-to-table dining experience, which blends an exquisite meal featuring locally-grown tropical fruits and vegetables from Taste of Redland with the harmonic sounds of the South Florida Symphony Orchestra. The intimate dinner performance is on Saturday, Feb. 29, 2020 from 6 – 9 p.m. at Gateway Park, 151 Sunny Isles Blvd., in Sunny Isles Beach.

“Gateway Park is the only outdoor venue in northeastern Miami-Dade County where guests can savor this one-of-a-kind intimate dinner performance,” says Sunny Isles Beach Mayor, George “Bud” Scholl. “We are bringing a hint of the Taste of Redland rural lifestyle to our city’s urban landscape in the hopes of enlightening our community and others about the benefits of locally grown produce from Redland and Florida farms.”

Each meal will showcase locally grown and picked produce from Redland and Florida farms. Guests will dine on exquisite cuisine while enjoying harmonious music by the South Florida Symphony Orchestra, performing a night of Pops, Broadway and Opera featuring 50 members of the orchestra and vocal soloists.

Renowned chef, Allen Susser, will be in attendance as the night’s special guest. Susser is a James Beard Award-winning chef with a passionate commitment to local fresh ingredients. The New York Times called Allen the “Ponce De Leon of New Florida cooking.” His landmark restaurant, Chef Allen’s, changed the way people ate in Miami forever, and impacted how we all eat today.

The City of Sunny Isles Beach is honored to host an extraordinary evening for culinary and classical aficionados. Sunny Isles Beach is committed to fostering a cultural and socially conscious community. Taste of Redland aims to connect the agricultural community of Redland with South Florida consumers and build momentum in the Miami Locavore Movement, with the hope that everyone can experience the taste of fresh Redland-raised fruits and vegetables. Taste of Redland wishes to contribute to this thriving community and build on making Redland the gem that it is today. The South Florida Symphony Orchestra (SFSO), founded by Maestra Sebrina María Alfonso in 1997, has developed into a superlative cultural institution serving all of South Florida. Guided by the belief that music is pivotal to community engagement, the SFSO brings vibrancy, innovation, and strengthens public commitment to the arts.

Tickets and tables are available for purchase online at sibfl.net/symphony or in person at the SIB Government Center, 18070 Collins Ave., and Pelican Community Park, 18115 North Bay Road.
