Several months ago Les Dames d’Escoffier Miami Chapter Board members met for a business luncheon at Earls Kitchen + Bar in the Dadeland Mall. The menu items and adult beverages were memorable and very affordable.  Dames, if you are in an evening shopping mood at Dadeland and afterwards seek fun sustenance and pampering for your tired feet, stop by at Earls Kitchen!  -Marguerite Gil



 Earls Kitchen + Bar, the vibrant restaurant and lounge, is celebrating summer in South Florida with a spirited “It’s a School Night” promotion from Wednesday, June 18 through Tuesday, September 9, 2014. During “school nights” this summer, (Sundays through Thursdays), guests can enjoy $5 food and beverage specials on popular dishes including the Los Cabos Chicken or Dominical Fish Tacos and a twist on classic nachos – house made, lime-salted white corn chips topped with warm chipotle cheese sauce, avocado, fresh tomatoes and green onion. Margaritas made with fresh juices and house made syrups are available in lime, raspberry, strawberry or mango and are the perfect drink to cool off with on the restaurant’s sprawling outdoor patio.
