Chef Michael's Table

Doral Arrowwood celebrated "grilling local" all summer long at Al Fresco on the Overlook Terrace.

This backyard American tradition is practiced and beloved by cooks of all skill levels. Try your hand at making Chef's favorite recipe for a delicious grilled meal, Grilled Flat Iron Steak “Al Fresco” Roasted Pepper Chimichurri.  This meal pairs perfectly with one of Doral's favorite local craft beers, Captain Lawrence Pale Ale 5.5 ABV, which has a deep amber color, citrus, pine and malty flavors.
