Stubborn Seed

What’s there to say about Stubborn Seed that hasn’t been said already? The award-winning upscale SoFi eatery is helmed by chef Jeremy Ford, a Top Chef alum who masterfully creates dishes that are as flavorful as they are beautiful. Everything about Stubborn Seed is an experience, which is why the Chef’s Tasting can’t be recommended enough. Sure, you can order bites like the ricotta gnudi and shigoku oysters a la carte, but if you’re spending that kind of money, you might as well go all in with the curated menu.

Food & Drink

It’s hard to pin down the type of cuisine served at Stubborn Seed—“global” doesn’t do it justice. Raw shaved Florida cobia, Arab spiced foie gras, truffle chicken … chef Ford is constantly changing the menu and upping the ante for his guests, always keeping them on their toes. No two visits are alike, and the unique dining experiences are complemented by just-as-thoughtful cocktails such as the Negroni a la Ford (a negroni with a kick) and the namesake Old Fashioned. 

If you’re looking for the Stubborn Seed experience on a budget, consider swinging by for happy hour. It’s literally only an hour but the promotion features the above cocktails plus oysters and other bites at a discount. Once you get a feel for the place, though, you’ll likely want to stay for a full-on dinner.
