A Palm Beach connection’s establishment is among the listed restaurants in TimeOut New York‘s best seafood places in the country.
Daniel Serfer, a constant staple of the Palm Beach Food & Wine Festival, and his Miami restaurant, Mignonette was listed as the 11th best seafood restaurant in the United States. The list was led by Fiola Mare in Washington, D.C., Le Bernardin in New York City, Providence in Los Angeles, Russ & Daughters in New York City, and Neptune Oyster in Boston.
According to the site, Mignonette has a host of “throwback pleasures” such as popcorn shrimp, oysters Rockefeller, crag Louis, and pie à la mode, but also features some “modern indulgences” like “thick croissants slathered in lobster butter and mango jam; fluke crudo with pickled banana peppers and mustard oil; conch-fritter Benedict drizzled in sherry-cayenne aioli; or swordfish set atop duck confit and wild-mushroom fricassee in Marsala pan sauce.”
Serfer has been apart of panels the last two years at the Wine & Food Festival — judging fried chicken, hot dogs, meatballs, tacos, and “wild card on a stick” with a group of Miami chefs in 2014 and talking about cuisine in Miami with chefs such as Brad Kilgore (Alter), Dena Marino (MC Kitchen), and Giorgio Rapicavoli (Eating House, Glass & Vine) last year.
