Sweet Butter Pop-Up
Ernisha Randolph wants to see Miami get back to its true Southern roots. The chef and owner of Juanita's Kitchen, is seeking to open Sweet Butter, a Southern restaurant that features a more healthful approach to traditional Low Country cuisine. Think fried chicken without tons of great and vegan collard greens that pack a ton of flavor without the fat back. While Randolph is scouting permanent spots for her restaurant, she's introducing it to Miami with a series of Sweet Butter pop-ups that feature a four-course meal from a rotating menu that include catfish, macaroni and cheese, and a hefty dose of colorful vegetables for balance. This immersive experience also includes a host of singers, dancers, and entertainers. Prices start at $55, with the first pop-up tonight, February 10 at the Overtown Performing Arts Center (1074 NW 3 Ave.). Show times are 6 p.m., 8 p.m., and 10 p.m. and reservations can be made at sweetbutter.eventbrite.com.
Then there was the pop-up restaurant, Sweet Butter, which was a sold out hit. It is the brain child of future restaurateur Ernisha Randolph. From the staging, cathedral ceilings, and full service kitchen; it was no wonder how Randolph was able to transform the space into a dinner theater with a live full band performance throughout the evening. The food was prepared and cooked on site and was phenomenal. It was a Louisiana styled soul food kind of night, with jambalaya, fried chicken, fried fish, collard greens, macaroni & cheese, and sautéed vegetables. The peach cobbler dessert topped off the evening with a bourbon infused iced-tea that would knock you off your feet!
