We were this close to finally experiencing Red Rooster Overtown—chef Marcus Samuelsson’s highly anticipated restaurant that’s been in the works for over two years. But... then the world imploded.
While its spanking-new dining room has been somewhat operational, offering prepackaged meals for Miamians in need, most of the local population hasn’t had the opportunity to taste executive chef Tristen Epps’ dishes until now.
Starting today, Red Rooster Overtown pops up at Stiltsville, Glass & Vine and Root & Bone with a special three-course meal to-go that’s inspired by Epps’ upcoming appearance on Food Network’s Chopped (which airs tonight) and the Miami restaurant’s forthcoming menu. Each one is priced at $65 (with $5 going toward the World Central Kitchen relief fund) and includes an appetizer of crispy cod nuggets (zhug aioli and a mango herb salad) and two entrees: a grilled bone-in pork chop with black bean fried rice and chipotle beer sauce, as well as Red Rooster’s famous Rooster Chicken Royal with miso malta truffle glazed dark meat, white cheddar mac ‘n’ cheese and forever braised greens. Dessert will vary by pop-up location and will be up to the chef’s discretion. For instance, purchase at Stiltsville and you might go home with a slice of key lime pie. Yum.
The meals are available right now for delivery and pickup via UberEats and the restaurants’ respective websites. There’s no telling for how long, but if there’s one thing we learned from these crazy times we’re living in, you better pounce on a craving fast or risk missing out.
