It's not often that I receive an invitation to something as clever as this special event I was invited to recently at 50 Ocean in Delray Beach. It's also not often that I find myself full before the end of a tasting menu, but this was the case on this night. Lucky for me, I had some yummy leftovers to chow down on the next day.
