The Forge will blow all your senses away

Last weekend, I was invited to attend the university president’s luncheon following the commencement ceremony at Johnson & Wales University’s North Miami campus. I was more than thrilled to discover that the event was being held at the newly renovated The Forge – one of South Beach’s iconic hot spots.

The Forge recently reopened in March after $10 million in renovations. Every chandeliered ceiling and sconced wall was designed to create a unique dining experience. The comfortable couches, cozy nooks and winged chairs, beacon guests to come in and soak up the great food, ambience and conversation. The furniture was custom-made and designed, including an Indonesian wood table as the centerpiece of one of the private dining rooms. We couldn't help trying to create a "rat pack" like scene (see photo below). Each room had a distinct design but the library setting with its shelves lined with books and reading tables stole my heart.

We were treated to the culinary delights by Chef Dewey LoSasso who did not disappoint. The Forge’s staff treated us to impeccable service which capped off the lovely afternoon.

I am looking forward to a return visit to experience the mixologist and the self-service wine program featuring over 80 bottles.

Headed to Miami? The Forge is a can’t miss.
