The Hyatt Regency Miami is going to be one tasty place to visit! Derrick “Chef Teach” Turton is bringing his celebrity-loved World Famous House of Mac to the property. In a soft launch, all of the dishes sold out in less than three hours. Hyatt Regency’s Riverview Bar & Grill and room service menu will feature most of the World Famous House of Mac’s most popular dishes, like Five Cheese Truffle Mac & Cheese.


The partnership is also part of Hyatt’s efforts to help build up local businesses by expanding purchasing with minority-owned business, especially Black-owned ones. Derrick Turton, known as Chef Teach, followed up his successful run in the entertainment industry by pursuing his culinary passions.
