Blais scheduled to attend
Our Supper Club at Four Flamingos: A Richard Blais Florida Kitchen for Thursday, July 14, sold out in less than 24 hours. So the folks at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress Resort have added a second night, though since it’s for Wed., July 13, it’s technically the first night. And here’s some information we didn’t have before: Richard Blais is planning to attend.
Reservations are now open for the July 13 Supper Club, and per our policy, recipients of my newsletter have first dibs. If any seats remain at the end of the day (Tues., July 5), the dinner will be announced to the general public.
We’ll meet Wednesday, July 13, for a 6:30 reception and seated dinner at 7 p.m. at the beautiful Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress Resort. (Four Flamingos is in the former Hemingway's building overlooking the resort's pool.) Cost is $150 per person including tax and gratuity. To reserve, call 407-239-3854 or click here for OpenTable. Note: The OpenTable page has four time slot selections by default. It doesn’t matter which one you select or, on the next page, which type of seating – that’s just a peccadillo of the OpenTable interface. All reservations made through that page will be part of the Scott Joseph Supper Club event.
We’ll have four courses but it will be a little different from Clubs Supper of the past in that each course will have options. Plus, you’ll be able to select whether you want red wine, white wine, or cocktails as your accompanying beverages. Check out the full menu selections:
First Course: choice of Tuna Tostada, Steamed Mussels, Ribeye Pinchos, or Oysters and Pearls
Second Course: Family style Cashew Caesar Salad and Beet Salad for the table
Third Course: choice of Bacon Wrapped Filet, Moqueca, Crab Raviolo, or Black Lime Bone-in Swordfish Prime Rib ($10 premium for Swordfish)
*course 3 served with chefs selection of family style side dishes*
Fourth Course: choice of our 4 house made desserts, Classic Key Lime Pie, Pineapple Rum Trifle, Chocolate Sphere, or Espresso Panna Cotta
*course 4 served with complimentary coffee service*
$150 per person including tax and gratuity. Ticket purchase comes with choice of one beverage set:
1st – Mylonas Attiki Assyrtiko
2nd – Santa Margharita
1st – King’s Estate “Inscription” Pinot Noir
2nd Turnbull Cabernet Sauvignon
1st - Mango Del Fuego
2nd – Florida Ol’ Fashioned
This is going to be two great evenings, and I love that the Four Flamingos team is offering course options. My recommendation for couples would be to order different items and share (the portions are generous; all items will be just as they’re served nightly). And the $10 premium for the swordfish is more than reasonable – it’s a $68 item on the regular menu.
