In addition to opening up a terra firma based location at Aventura Mall in February, Chef Jeremiah is moving, shaking and Tock-ing. Yep, Jeremiah and his gastroPOD have been selected to join the trial program of Tock, the ticket-based reservation system created by Alinea’s lauded Grant Achatz and Nick Kokonas. “It’s pretty amazing to be associated immediately with the caliber of restaurants already utilizing this set up,” Jeremiah told us. Tock has a pretty impressive list of investors. Among them: Thomas Keller, Ming Tsai and Twitter CEO Dick Costolo. In fact, Keller plans to toss OpenTable and traditional phone reservations at some of his hottest tickets (French Laundry and Per Se) in favor of his latest investment, through which diners can prepay for food (not booze), gratuity and taxes. For more information on this system, read the Chicago Tribune’s article here. As for Jeremiah’s first foray at Tock, hes throwing a brunch and dinner with Travis Grimes, chef of Husk in Charleston on February 8 and 9. “The plan is to continue bringing in chefs from all over,” Jeremiah adds. Until Tock ticks, head to Gastropodmiamitickets.com.
