On Tuesday, August 21st, 30 very special members of the Yelp Miami Elite Squad gathered at Palmar in Wynwood! This upscale Chinese restaurant with tropical vibes set the stage for an intimate dinner to celebrate Yelpers that have been Elite for 5+ years (Gold Elite Badges) and 10+ years (Black Elite Badges).
The food and the people were the stars of this amazing evening. The small tables allowed these Elite veterans to mingle with old friends and a few new, but familiar faces. After settling into the cozy dining room, the wine started flowing and the evening kicked off with dim sum. Plate after plate of incredible bites hit the tables– from edamame and shiitake pot stickers, to duck confit dumplings, to veggie egg rolls and crispy prawns. We could have eaten these tasty bites all night long, but then came the veggies, and 63 degree fried rice. After enjoying the fabulous, oozing egg yolk from the fried rice, we rounded off the savory dishes with Jasmine Char Siu St Louis pork ribs and Mongolian beef with fermented chili. Finally, the night ended on a sweet note with a 5 spice egg custard in beautiful little Chinese pots.
Between the dinner guests, the food, and the gorgeous setting, this night was nothing short of phenomenal. A truly Elite Experience, Palmar put on the perfect night to celebrate these Black and Gold Badge Elite Yelpers!
Yelp Miami would like to personally thank the entire team at Palmar, including Chef Ray JR, Javier Ramirez, JR, and the entire Palmar staff for their world-class hospitality, ensuring all guests with a remarkable experience.
