The first annual Taste of the Beach & End of Summer Block Party will take over Miami Beach from September 29th  through September 30th.  Miami Beach’s first community-driven food event will shut down Collins Park (21st Street and Collins Avenue) for a two day-culinary extravaganza featuring celebrity chefs, local restaurants, live entertainment, recreational activities and more. The “food gates” will open daily from 11a.m. to 6p.m. and feature more than 40 restaurants and community organizations. Admission is $5 and patrons will receive $5 worth of food tickets to purchase gourmet goodies from the various vendors. A portion of the event’s proceeds will benefit the Miami Beach Arts Trust and The Miami Beach Children’s Hospital Foundation. Taste of the Beach will feature the culinary expertise of celebrity chef Robyn Almodovar. Chef Robyn competed on season 10 of Fox’s Hell’s Kitchen and currently travels around South Florida sharing her fresh, locally sourced gastro pub goodies from her food truck, Palate Party. She will host two live cooking demos at noon and 3p.m. on Sunday, September 30th.
