Wednesday, October 19: An Evening at Joe’s

The festivities kick off at Miami Beach’s most iconic seafood restaurant, Joe’s Stone Crab, which opened in 1913 as a small seafood counter. Today it’s a glitzy, signature Miami Beach seafood restaurant where stone crabs are the main event (in season from October 1 through May 1) but the rest of the menu is equally beloved. South Beach Seafood Week officially begins with An Evening At Joe’s, hosted by Jack Daniel’s No. 27 Gold. Chef Andre Bienvenue will show off with a five-course menu paired with fine wine and spirits. General Manager Brian Johnson will be onsite to teach guests how to crack the perfect claw. Tickets are $500 and are extremely limited. The event runs from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.

Thursday, October 20: GOYA’S Crabs, Slabs, & Cabs

Enjoy seafood, meat and wine poolside at this decadent event presented by Baptist Health. GOYA’S Crabs, Slabs, & Cabs is an evening showcasing the “best of the best” of Greater Miami & Miami Beach’s food world. More than 10 chefs will present bites celebrating fresh ingredients, putting their own international spin on traditional surf ’n’ turf. Expect expertly paired cabernet sauvignons and rosés with each dish. The $250 ticket price is all-inclusive. The event runs from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m.

Friday, October 21: VIP Chef Showdown

TGIF! It’s the Chef Showdown. Several years ago, the Travel Channel named this event the Best Seafood Competition in the USA – and now it’s your chance to take a bite of the fun.

It is open to the public and offers a lively festival atmosphere with stone crabs, shrimp cocktail, fish tacos, fresh oysters, lobster waffle cones, ceviche and much more.
