South Florida "Foodie" or Dining Club?

YosemiteSam | Sep 4, 200802:29 PM     12

I'm curious if anyone is aware of a South Florida dining out club or organization? What I am thinking of is a group of folks who love to eat out who get together monthly for a dining bacchanal where much wine and food is enjoyed at a top local restaurant, and perhaps some interaction with the chef/sommelier/owner etc. I could also imagine a wine distributor or food purveyor taking part as well featuring their wares to an influential group of opinion leaders like those on this board.

I remember seeing something on Top Chef Miami about the local chapter of The Chaîne des Rôtisseurs, Bailliage de Miami Beach. However, those folks seemed a little pretentious with their medals and ribbons around their necks (sorry if anyone on here is a member).

There are a lot of South Florida networking groups that meet at restaurants (like French Tuesdays), but those seem to be more about the clubbing than the food.

I guess what I would like to find is a group of like-minded folks who love good food and drink that gets together to enjoy the same and to discuss other food goings on in the area.

Anyone know of such a group? And if so, can I get invited? :)

By the way, I hope this topic is appropriate for this board, I sometimes get confused as to where to post things and the moderators move it elsewhere - so I hope I didn't violate some type of organizational rule.
