And now, for a dining event that will fill your heart as well as your stomach.

More than 80 of South Florida’s top restaurants and chefs will participate in South Florida’s Taste of the Nation, benefiting Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign to end childhood hunger. The June 17 event at Soho Studios in Wynwood is three hours of sampling food and drinks from some of South Florida’s top kitchens.

Picture the South Beach Wine & Food Festival compressed into one evening, filling the 50,000-square-foot Soho Studios with dishes from restaurants such as Miami Herald 3 1/2-star rated Beaker & Gray, Glass and Vine and KYU. An urban beer garden with offerings from local breweries will add to the festivities.

Those with VIP tickets can keep the festivities going with an after party at R House in Wynwood. The $125 tickets — the proceeds of which go to charity — are available online. VIP tickets at $250 a person also allow for entry an hour early.
