After many extended engagements in Amsterdam, on the Italian Riviera, and in her hometown, Kimona left NYC to make Miami, the "Sixth Borough", her new home so she would never again have to wear a heavy coat over a fabulous outfit. Kimona will delight Acqualina guests with her sultry vocals and jazz tunes. Cozy up with your special someone and share an exceptional four-course dinner imagined with love by celebrity Chef Dewey LoSasso. Dinner begins with a cold and hot antipasto plate featuring Tuna Crudo with truffle essence and fig jam, Sambuca Cured Salmon with pumpkin Carpaccio and crispy leeks, Roasted Blue Point Oysters with arugula and a parmesan crust, Grilled and Picked Vegetables, Duck Liver Crostini with onion marmalade, Olives and Marcona Almonds, Grapefruit Gremolata and Rosemary Crostini.
