BK Goes Twihard for Twilight; Corner Catch of The Day; More!

BURGER KING—Capitalizing on the Twilight craze, BK is giving away all sorts of New Moon swag, from collectible cards to limited edition BK Crown Cards and Crowns seen on the heads of the diehards sleeping out for the premiere. Speaking of those diehards, we wonder if BK is also giving away jobs to those who got fired after their bosses busted them cutting work in order to be the first at the big New Moon premiere?

SOUTH DADE—Resisting the urge to make yet another working girl on a street corner joke is hard, but harder sometimes is finding fresh fish, especially if you don't feel like catching it yourself. Short Order has discovered a fresh-catch truck on the corner of Krome Ave. and Kendall Drive that's been reeling in the finest grouper, snapper, wahoo, dorado, mcakerel, shrimp and more. Owned by Eduardo Herrera, the truck sells whatever his son, Captain Phyl, catches that day. Herrera doesn't mind if you call to find out the catch of the day, either. Captain Phyllip Fish Market: 305-776-5707. [MNT]
SOUTH BEACH—Executive Chef Gonzalo Rivera has introduced new lunch and dinner menus for La Marea at the Tides as well as a new bar menu for the Coral Bar. The menus are inspired by Rivera's Mexican heritage and feature dishes such as Acapulco prawn cocktail--fresh Gulf prawns in cold tomato soup with Haas avocado; Kobe skirt steak quesadillas; and crispy fish tacos. Menus also offer Asian inspired udon noodles with miso-glazed black grouper, corriander scented broth and bok choy succotash; pan seared wahoo with squid ink pasta, ratatouille and smoked shallot beurre blanc; and a selection of burgers and sandwiches for lunchtime.

ARSHT CENTERAnthony Bourdain made like Alton Brown , hosting a benign cookoff Friday between Jacques Pépin and Eric Ripert. In between the Quickfire-esque challenge of coming up with a dish made from ingredients presented to them in baskets, the chefs sounded off on all sorts of subjects, from Gordon Ramsay's Hell's Kitchen (hate it) and working with Joël Robuchon (traumatic) to their last meals.
