Champagne V.S. Sparkling Wine; We Now Have Steve Martorano Day

Brunch at Porfirio's, Steak 954's war of the wines and more.

FORT LAUDERDALE — The city of Fort Lauderdale has named November 22 Steve Martorano Day. Yes, you read right. So popular are chef Steve Martorano and his iconic Cafe Martorano's that the Mayor and city commissioners have given Martorano "an official day dedicated to his life and career."

FORT LAUDERDALE — Next up (and last for this year) in Steak 954's War of the Wines, a bubbly battle. December 3 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., guests can enjoy a five course meal complete while a champagne vs sparkling wine battle ensues. Tickets to the dinner are priced at $100 per person. [EaterWire]

SOUTH BEACH  — Mexican brunch anyone? Porfirio's Restaurant has rolled out just that. Prep yourselves for slow roasted pork dishes, local fish options, flan and tons of other items. In the booze department, plenty of Bloody Marias (bloody marys with tequila). [EaterWire]
