Komodo NFT and the Culinary world experience taking us into the metaverse

1 min read

The Miami Tech Week and the Miami Bitcoin Conference  filled the city with tech bros and crypto investors. Usually, the only involvement a restaurant would have in such a week would be to possibly offer a signature cocktail —

Until now.

Groot Hospitality, in partnership with the NFT company Bubblehouse, created an NFT dessert called “Fire & Ice.” The NFT is limited to 300, at $100 a pop.

What, you might well ask, is an NFT dessert? It’s a dessert that lives on the blockchain. So, in this case, NFT stands for “Not for Tasting.”

New TImes got a preview of the NFT and, well, it’s kinda cool: a 15-second digital clip shows a gilded Chinese dragon swooping down onto the sands of South Beach and blowing flames at a golden egg engraved with the word “Komodo”.

The clip, according to a Groot representative, was not created by a famous artist and the money doesn’t benefit a charity. But there is one key benefit to owning the NFT: Holders get the opportunity to purchase a real dessert at Groot Hospitality’s Brickell restaurant, Komodo.

You know, the analog kind you can eat.

The “Fire & Ice” dessert starts with a dark-chocolate egg, coated in an ombré fade of red, gold, orange and black. The egg is presented on a dragon-shaped platter and then “cracked” by having flaming 151-proof rum drizzled on it. The flame is then doused with caramel-passionfruit sauce, exposing an interior filled with coconut meringue, chocolate crunch, and cake. The dessert sounds amazing and costs a “Miami-reasonable” $40.

The catch: To order the dessert, you have to purchase the NFT.

Groot Hospitality founder David Grutman tells New Times that the NFT/dessert combo takes experiential dining to a new level.

“A big part of what we aim for at Komodo — and all Groot properties — is to create new and highly memorable experiences. By combining the culinary world with Bubblehouse and digital art, we see this dessert-NFT combo as the first step to a near-limitless future. The metaverse is only going to grow, and we’re going to be right there with it as it evolves.”

Grutman is correct that NFTs are gaining ground in the culinary world. Earlier this month in partnership with King Plebs, the Tank Brewing Co. released a double IPA called Pleb Nectar, accessible via a beer-centric NFT that unlocks limited-edition beers at participating breweries. The NFT costs 0.05 Ethereum (ETH) —about $160 when last we checked — and includes discounts at participating brewery partners.

The Komodo “Fire & Ice” NFT can be purchased via Bubblehouse with Apple Pay.
