Last night was the official launch of “A Feast for the Eyes” at Wynwood Kitchen & Bar and we were invited to check it out. In what Chef Miguel Aguilar hopes will become a monthly series, the restaurant exhibits the work of an artist and offers a four-course prix fixe menu that celebrates the artist’s nationality and personal palate.

The artist of the evening was Miami-based Santiago Rubino, renowned as a street and graffiti artist as well as for his contribution to the Wynwood Walls. His work was on display as diners nommed on Argentinian-inspired dishes, in honor of Rubino’s heritage.

The prix fixe menu consisted of smoked tuna empanadas, an avocado and romaine salad, Chilean sea bass with boniato puree, and chocolate alfajores. The four courses run $50 per person and a $20 wine pairing is available. The wines served last night were Alta Vista Torrontes (2012), Alto De Platas (2012), Terrazas Malbec (2010), and Raza Late Harvest Torrontes (2011), but diners also have the option of choosing from the wine menu.
