Kuro's New Style Remix Dinner puts Fort Lauderdale on the South Beach Wine & Food Festival map

Celebrity chef Justin Warner and Kuro executive chef Alex Becker pair Japanese cuisine to sounds by Felix Da Housecat for this Taste of Fort Lauderdale Series event. 

Our Grade: A (Well worth the $$).

What worked: Incredible flavor pairings, copious amounts of sake and wine, and an increasingly funky soundtrack by the legendary Felix Da Housecat kept spirits up all night long. 

What didn't work: There was a lot of alcohol for such dainty portions - lightweights, beware. 

Best thing we ate: Hamachi Blood Orange with yuzu kashya, crispy Tokyo negi and star anise paired with Chokaisan "Chokai Mountain" Akita.

Quote of the night: "We started in Japan, but we're ending this in Funkytown. Get it, Felix." (Overheard)

Craziest thing we saw: A tall blonde pretending to DJ while Felix Da Housecat subtly photobombed her Snapchat shots.
