We interrupt tonight’s programming with an impromptu dinner at Kitchen 305. My friend Amanda works for one of the coolest/hottest/trendiest companies, and as a thank you for something amazing that she accomplished, she was invited to dine at Kitchen 305 tonight. Lucky me, her husband couldn’t go, and I was very quick to say YES. First of all, I never say no to catching up with a good friend, and I never say no to a free dinner.
This restaurant has been on my list of places to visit for some time now, so I was so excited to be going tonight. According to their website “Kitchen 305 offers an exciting and unique dining experience where creative plating techniques showcase distinctive gastronomic American-eclectic fare at its best. Where South Beach meets Sunny Isles Beach, Kitchen 305 offers great food and a fun dining in a chic setting. Located in the home of the former Newport Pub, Kitchen 305 is under the direction of Chef Julius Brown who brings his talents from Starwood Hotels & Resorts.
This energetic eatery offers creative plating techniques that compliment each dish. Local beach-inspired dishes make the hotel restaurant a favorite get-away for both guests and locals alike. There are ample choices to please any palate on the à la carte menu as well as with the very affordable fixed price Chef’s Menu.”It was quite a happening place tonight. They had a DJ playing when we got there, then towards the end of our night the live music started. The line was out the door and wait time was about an hour and a half!!!! Might I add it’s wednesday night aka school night. But I guess it’s never a school night in Miami!
We were treated to a divine spread of “Lobster Madness”. It was an all-you-can-eat lobster night. I must admit, I have never had lobster on its own, only as part of the surf and turf, and this was quite an experience.
I didn’t even know where to start. With the help of our server he showed us how to get to the good stuff. The lobster was so juicy – absolutely no butter needed, just a little lemon. We had two servings and took the leftovers back home to the boys.
It was hard to concentrate on any of the side dishes with the abundance of lobster…delicious, finger licking delicious!!!
Thank you Amanda for inviting me to come along tonight – I had a great time catching up and I truly enjoyed the lobster:) Girls’ nights out on a school nights are great – we should definitely do it more often.
