Verde’s Summer Guest Chef Series Ends on a High Note

Verde

All summer long, Verde invited guest chefs to collaborate on family-style feasts inside the Perez Art Museum Miami eatery. The star-studded lineup for the monthly meal included local favorites like Edge Steak and Bar’s Aaron Brooks and Macchialina’s Michael Pirolo. To close out the series, Verde’s own Kaytlin Dangaran and former Michael’s Genuine Food and Drink Chef de Cuisine Niven Patel treated diners to an unforgettable three-course culinary experience.
