“Top Chef” star Jeremy Ford of Stubborn Seed in SoFi (South of Fifth) remains biker-tough even as he pursues some of the most delicate and experimental food Miami has tasted in the last two years. And he has another Afishionado set for Coconut Grove. His specialty is the enhancement of plain and simple foods. How about lavash with chicken liver butter and chili jam? It’s a small menu, but every dish has multiple flavors and textures to contrast like roast chicken with brussels sprout, charred turnips and truffle butter. Ford’s snickerdoodle cookies are extreme.
