Todd English will cook a $12,000 a plate dinner on a superyacht during the Miami Grand Prix

If you have $12,000 to spend, or you just sold your house to a new Silicon Valley bro for five times what it’s worth, and you’re looking for something super extra to do this F1 Miami Grand Prix weekend, you can go for the gold


On Saturday, May 7, Chef Todd English will partner with My Yacht Group to host a $12,000 per plate, 12-course UHNW Investor Summit Dinner aboard the M/Y gene hunter, a 185-foot superyacht. The gene hunter is the support ship for the “mother ship” M/Y gene machine, which houses a working research laboratory. That’s where owner Dr. Jonathan Rothberg and his team show off many of the transformative smart medical devices brought to light by startup accelerator 4Catalyzer.

But enough of boring biomedicine.

Among the dishes Chef English will prepare is “Liquid Gold”: truffled Alaskan king crab with gold leaf-infused French butter sauce and golden osetra caviar. Other dishes that deserve some kind of price, but maybe not that Kind of a price tag, it includes a lot of seafood: Maine lobster mac and cheese balls, a small buttered brown lobster roll on a fresh croissant, and tempura shrimp with squid ink.

There will also be some expensive meats for carnivores to sink their grills into, like lamb chops with mint yogurt and Wagyu skewers with soy and wasabi chimichurri. We also hear that a “signature risotto” from Todd English is promised.

The evening will begin with a reception and dinner for guests only. Immediately after dinner, the superyacht will transform into a floating nightlife experience that includes dancing on the helipad, acrobats, DJs and other live entertainment.

We’re not sure what any of this has to do with the Miami Grand Prix other than the weather, or if any of the money spent on the dinner will go towards research. miami new times has asked. But it is said that both an astronaut and an Olympic athlete will attend.

Watch? More gold.
