ZUCCA to Celebrate Anniversary With Six-course Culinary Experience

To celebrate the restaurant’s fifth anniversary, ZUCCA’S Executive Chefs Manuel Garcia and Enrique Limardo will curate a six-course epicurean journey in Miami on April 27 and 28. The anniversary dinner party will mark five years since the restaurant opened its doors inside the historic St. Michel Hotel in the heart of Coral Gables.

The authentic six-course meal will feature the combination of Limardo’s fresh and innovative flavors with Garcia’s traditional Italian cooking, providing guests a unique opportunity to see their talents in action. Featured items by Executive Chef Limardo include a bread-basket feast with Sea Urchin Butter, Wild Porcini Soup, Cured Wagyu and Tonnato, while Executive Chef Garcia will be presenting Black Tortelli with lobster and caviar as well as Filet of Veal. The chefs will also serve Crispy Tiramisu Bomb, Guava Cheesecake and Petit Fours for dessert.

Born in Caracas, Venezuela, Chef Limardo is the Chief Culinary Officer of Seven Reasons Restaurant Group and Co-Founder and Executive Chef of Imperfecto in the District of Columbia, where several dignitaries and officials enjoy dining. While working on his post-graduate degree in culinary arts, he worked alongside some of Spain’s most distinguished chefs, including Michelin-star greats Joan Roca, Ramon Freixa, Xavier Pellicer, Joan Pique and Carles Gaig. In 2019, his Seven Reasons restaurant was voted number No. 1 best new restaurant in the country by Esquire magazine.

Before joining ZUCCA as its executive chef, Garcia worked at top Michelin Star restaurants in Europe, including L’esperance, La Cote Saint-Jacques and in Mostassa at Hotel Le Meriden. He has been ZUCCA’s top chef since 2017, where he prepares exquisite Italian delicacies.

ZUCCA is a restaurant and bar offering authentic, artisanal Italian cuisine from a diverse range of the country’s regions within a masterfully crafted, modern space. Their genuine passion involves creating tastes that excite and engage the senses through classic techniques and flawless preparation.

The curated six-course dining experience is $250 per person. Limited reservations are available, and reservations are required and must be secured in advance, as no seating will be sold at the door.

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
