On Sunday night, 100 Yelpers kicked off the 2018 calendar year at Gilbert’s Southern Kitchen & Bar and Gilbert’s Hot Chicken Fish & Shrimp. Guests were treated to a pre-opening, exclusive sneak peek into the new Jax Beach restaurant concepts. Helmed by renowned chef and restauranteur, Kenny Gilbert, Yelpers were in for quite the treat as soon as they stepped foot inside the restaurant. Fan favorites included Roasted Suckling Pig, Hot Chicken Sliders, Seafood Boil, and so much more! Add an open bar with hand-crafted, specialty bourbon and moonshine cocktails for an unforgettable experience.
On top of all of that, Yelpers had the unique opportunity to interact first hand with Top Chef alum, Kenny Gilbert and Mei Lin! Guests ultimately experienced three concepts all in one night making this event one for the history books. Read all rave reviews of the event and check out the spectacular photos, courtesy of Kristen Penoyer. Yelp Jacksonville would like to personally thank Kenny, Mei, Ana and the entire staff for ensuring Yelpers with a 5-star experience.
