Uncle Luke's Dinner
Mignonette hosts an evening of good food and hip hop with Uncle Luke on November 11th!
It's not everyday that you get to dine and vibe with one of your heroes. On Wednesday, November 11th our collective dream will come true when rapper Luther Campbell comes to dinner at Mignonette! Luther Campbell (aka Uncle Luke) of 2 Live Crew fame, University of Miami infamy and one-time Miami-Dade mayoral candidate, is hosting a dinner party with our very own Chef/Owner Danny Serfer.
Although Campbell and Serfer's days of raunchy freak fests are behind them, we are going to be as nasty as we want to be for one-night-only. Lolo Reskin, Owner/Founder of Sweat Records created a special playlist for the evening. Serfer and his crew are cooking up a five course meal of down home favorites and Miami classics priced at $90 per person (inclusive of gratuity, excludes beverage purchases). The menu, created by Serfer with input from Campbell features homemade conch fritters, olive oil poached halibut and a 'tootsie roll' for dessert. Each ticket entitles guests to a signed copy of Campbell's new book, The Book of Luke: My Fight for Truth, Justice and Liberty City (Amistad). The book reveals the untold stories of 2 Live Crew, charts the career of one of hip hop's earliest godfathers and puts to rest the rumors surrounding the UM football team. "I celebrate Uncle Luke's entire catalogue from As Nasty As They Wanna Be to I Got Shit on My Mind, plus I am a die hard Hurricanes fan," Serfer says. "Mignonette is excited to celebrate Uncle Luke, the godfather of explicit rap and the reason albums come with explicit content stickers today."
Welcome cocktail and passed snacks will begin at 7:30pm; dinner starts promptly at 8pm. Mignonette is located in Edgewater at 210 NE 18th Street.
About Luther Campbell
As the pioneer of Southern Hip-Hop, the record mogul helped launched the careers of such artists as Trick Daddy, H-town and Pitbull. Not only was Mr. Campbell the first African American to open a successful record label, but he also ushered in a new way of viewing hip-hop. Traditionally, hip-hop was featured in the inner cities of New York and L.A. Graffiti and breakdancers were the theme of most videos. Living in arguably one of America's most beautiful cities, Mr. Campbell provided a fun and outgoing perspective of hip hop that the country had never seen before. He was the first rapper to shoot videos in Miami with scantily-clad girls on beaches and boats. As a result, he created what is now considered the number one location and format for rap videos.
Mignonette is housed in a former-1930s gas station in the heart of Miami's up-and-coming Edgewater neighborhood.

At its heart, Mignonette is a place to slurp oysters, sample fine caviar, dig deep into a fried shrimp po'boy, savor one of Mignonette Chef Serfer's beautifully-rendered main plates, enjoy craft beer or a glass of wine from our whimsically curated wine list. The restaurant is open for dinner nightly; lunch is served Monday through Friday along with Happy Hour from 5:30PM to 7PM. Weekend brunch is served from11:30AM to 3PM.
