Happy Chinese New Year! Today marks the beginning of the Year of The Monkey in the Chinese lunar calendar. People born in the year of the monkey are quick witted, intelligent and playful. They are mischievous but well-intentioned jokesters who love to play pranks but don't mean to cause harm.
To celebrate the Year of the Monkey, Miami’s cooking instructor and Wok Star Eleanor Hoh will be bringing her HOH WOK CLUB to Miami Beach's hot new restaurant, Bazi for a delightful Chinese New Year dinner, Sunday, February 21st from 4-6pm. The 3 course delicious dinner is set at $50 and includes tips and tax. Only 50 lucky guests get to join Hoh inside Bazi’s dramatic dining room with red and gold accents, replete with elegant tufted banquettes, artfully shaped bonsai, and a massive dragon with glittering golden scales. Bazi is located inside the legendary Marlin Hotel at 1200 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach.
Bazi will offer guests a festive communal dining experience rich with traditional Asian touches. Diners can get their year off to a lucky start by enjoying menu items such as house made sweet potato dumplings for prosperity, long noodles to symbolize longevity and crispy snapper signifying abundance. The dinner ends with two dessert choices of chocolate bowl and pan dan rice pudding.

Guests are advised to make their reservations as soon as possible to avoid disappointment as her Chinese New Year gatherings have proved very popular!

About Bazi Miami
Chef Michael Pirolo and his managing partner, Jen Chaefsky opened Bazi, an Asian-inspired restaurant in South Beach because they love to cook Asian at home and as Chef Michael explains, “Bazi is a place you can come for your fanciest celebration dinner and go all out or stop by for a bowl of noodles & a beer at the bar on your way home. It’s here for everyone and every occasion.” Bazi means the four pillars of one’s destiny and their family style menu reflects this philosophy which allows you to mix and match and still complements one another. They like to call it Asian classics with a modern twist.
