The City of Hallandale Beach Community Redevelopment Agency will expand the much-anticipated Food & Groove event, part of the South Beach Wine & Food Festival Hallandale Beach event series, to include local favorites from both the City of Hallandale Beach and the surrounding area.
Restaurant owners considering expanding, moving, or opening a restaurant in Hallandale Beach are invited to showcase their cuisine at Food & Groove, a wine, food, and art experience, on February 24, 2024, at Pegasus Park at Gulfstream Village. Participating restaurants include Ajaicos Restaurant, Dr. Limon Hallandale, KAO Bar & Grill, Krazy Vegan, Chef Irie, and Dunns River Island Café.
As an incentive, all participating restaurants outside of the city boundaries will be eligible for a $1,000 reimbursement. Following the event, restaurant owners may be eligible to receive grants for commercial kitchen equipment, façade improvements, and interior renovations to offset the cost of opening a restaurant in the City.
This year’s “Festival of Lights”-themed evening will boast a glow-in-the-dark LED activation area for attendees, art, music, and a performance from FUSION, a DJ-driven dance band that will have guests moving and grooving.
Bundle tickets are available for $225 per person for guests attending both the Celebrity Chef Dinner on February 23 at KAO Bar & Grill (11 NE 1st Avenue) and Food & Groove on February 24. Individual tickets to Food & Groove are available for $75 per person. Attendees must be 21 years old or older to attend either event. Uber and Lyft ridesharing discount codes are also available to and from both events. Discount codes and information are available on the Hallandale Beach Event Series website.
