Check Out the Full Line-Up for LUCKYRICE Miami


Miami food mongers rejoice, because for the first time LUCKYRICE festival is coming here. Tickets have been on sale for a few weeks now, and as the event date nears, it's time to get really excited because they just announced the full line-up. On Friday November 30, the festival will bring a talented, celebrity group of chefs and mixologists together at Soho Beach House. Hosted by Susur Lee of Top Chef Masters, and restaurants Lee's and Bent in Toronto, Chinois in Singapore and Zentan in Washington DC and Douglas Rodriguez, innovator of "Nuevo Latin" cuisine and head of De Rodriguez on Ocean, LUCKYRICE Miami is combining their two forces for a "Chino Latino" fusion. The bites and sips will be featured at the pool, tiki hut, and beach with oceanside fire pits, performance by Chinese jazz vocalist Le Zhang, and tunes by local DJ Mike Deuce. General admission tickets are $88, and the VIP experience is $150, which includes an exclusive taste from one of the restaurants and an extra hour of eating and drinking before the event opens to general admission. Eater's got the full roster of food and drink menus for the night, so watch the video, check out what's in store, and get some tickets before they sell out. Hint: there will be the chance to preview food and drink items from the soon-to-open Khong River House. As they say at LUCKYRICE, "after all, if we are what we eat, we're all part-Asian."
