Jose Mendin Announces All-Star Chef Series ‘Mendin & Friends’

by Nichole Fratangelo for The latin kitchen


Chef Jose Mendin has a lot of amigos – but he’s not keeping them all to himself.

The four-time James Beard-nominated chef just announced the launch of Mendin & Friends, a dinner series that invites chefs and industry friends to share his kitchen. Mendin and his co-host will prepare a multi-course eclectic menu that reflects each guest chef’s culinary style. Venues throughout the series will vary among The Pubbelly Group‘s various locations.

Mendin kicks things off Wednesday, February 24 – just in time for South Beach Wine & Food, by the way – with a late night fiesta featuring bar bites and $15 made-to-order cocktails from the mixologists behind NYC’s Employees Only and the soon-to-be-opened Langford Hotel rooftop bar, Pawnbroker. The following night, Mendin will host a kitchen collaboration dinner with chef and restaurateur Ford Fry. The two will transform the Pubbelly space into a “best of” concept based on Fry’s new Italian restaurant, St. Cecilia.

Additional Mendin & Friends chefs include Juan Manuel Barrientos, chef/owner of El Cielo, and Jeremy Ford, Top Chef contestant and Chef de Cuisine at Miami’s Matador Room.
