Here is more information about Craft Social Club :

 

According to Urban Daddy :

"It’s got gray brick walls. It’s got a bunch of comfortable places to sit. It’s got a big L-shaped bar made up of white subway tile. But most importantly, it’s got taps behind that bar loaded with drinks that’ve been carefully crafted in the neighboring open-air kitchen. Like the Dillinger with bourbon and orange bitters. Or the O.D.B. with tequila, lime and Fresno chili agave. Or the absolutely-anything-else because they’re all worthy of your full attention and respect. Show up late-night with the kind of group that has a loose interpretation of the word “night.” Opt for one of those navy banquettes and laugh at all the funny things you keep saying to each other. Or better yet, request a cocktail suite. Those come equipped with built-in service bars and bartenders who know how to use them for good."

 

According to Eater :

"Craft Social Club is the brainchild of industry vets RT Murphy and LP Steele, who have revamped the space to include hanging shrubbery, plenty of exposed brick and an open kitchen, which isn't serving food just yet — but we're told a small bites menu will be coming shortly. The bar is now open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. at 100 Collins Avenue." written by Olee Fowler.

But they’ve got plans for black-and-white-houndstooth chairs and graffiti columns drawn up by local artists soon. Textbook Miami. Goes without saying, but you’ll want to come here for an impression-making meetup. Lunch. Dinner. Either one will work. First, situate yourself next to the glass-enclosed wine case. Then, order the “Casa Lucio” Revistados to share. That’s a 64-degree egg and warm ibérico ham served with mashed potato and chips. Followed by a 14-ounce prime New York strip steak and Maine lobster thermidor."

A charming and eclectic space beneath sprawling trees and twinkling bistro lights, Cafe Nikki features a mix of South of France Pastries and croissants are baked daily in a Pavailler oven imported directly from France, and served with Alain Milliat marmalades and juices from Lyon. Cafe Nikki will be open this Friday, 21 Aug 2015 at SoBe. This serene cafe features freshly brewed coffees and teas, house made pastries and croissants, imported jams and marmalades plus breads prepared by Miami’s favorite artisan, Zak the Baker. It will be open Monday-Saturday from 9AM til 4PM. Here is more information about Cafe Nikki :

 

According to Urban Daddy :

"Hard to believe, but Nikki Beach is getting into the French café game. Really. You’ll find it in their courtyard area. And it’s all sprawling trees, towering bookshelves, cushioned couches and suspended wicker swings. Just a charming little spot to while away the afternoon, pretending you’re in the South of France. Minus the France part. They’ve got coffee and tea, sure. But also juice imported from Lyon. And a Pavailler oven from France baking croissants and pastries, like the kiwi-topped custard tart. Which might work for a quick afternoon snack in between meetings. But if it’s shaping up to be more of a lunchtime rendezvous with a friendly face, look to some Zak the Baker bread paired up with smoked-salmon quiche."

 

According to New Times :

"This little French cafe serves light breakfast and lunch fare like coffees and teas, croissants, quiches, pastries, European marmalades, and Zak the Baker bread in a charming courtyard filled with greenery at reasonable prices. And by reasonable, we mean reasonable. In other words, how does a muffin or a cookie for one dollar sound? After perusing the menu, I seriously had to confirm the pricing with a rep for the cafe. She replied in the affirmative, adding, Café Nikki was truly created for the local community. We wanted an accessible menu that had something for everyone within a comfortable environment. If you're looking for something a little more filling, a quiche made with salmon cured in-house or Florentine quiche is $5 each; a fresh fruit and Greek yogurt parfait is $5; and a basket filled with two slices of Zak the Baker bread, butter, cream cheese, and assorted jams is $3." written by Laine Doss.

Jugofresh at South Pointe decide to expand a bit of their business. They open a pop up restaurant called R+D Kitchen. The popular juice bar announced and open the restaurant inside the jugofresh location at South Beach. The menu will be created by jugofresh's Executive Chef Darren Laszlo will feature a menu filled with, shared plates, vegan charcuterie boards, superfood sweets, cold-pressed juice mocktails, sake cocktails and a curated organic wine. The 30-seat restaurant will be open for dinner Thursday through Saturday as well as brunch on Saturday and Sunday for a, "limited summer run." The jugofresh will stay in open during the daytime however Monday through Friday. Here is more information about R+D Kitchen :

 

According to Urban Daddy :

"If you’re looking for bacon-wrapped brisket fried in duck fat, turn around right now. But if you’re looking for a charming, candle-lit setup with potted plants and intimate wood-topped tables to escort a herbivore-leaning yogi to, congratulations. Date night should go swimmingly. Well, until later this summer. That’s when they’re closing up shop. Then you’ll actually have to do yoga or something. Thursday to Saturday. That’s when they’re serving dinner. It’s also when you’ll sit down at the six-seat marble chef’s table and procure a couple of port and sake drinks. Like the KP Social Club with shiso, lime and junmai sake. If said potables lead to things like eating (it’s been known to happen), you’re ordering the Pa/ella with cauliflower quinoa saffron. And the butterscotch buckwheat with passion leche. There’s always room for butterscotch buckwheat."

 

According to New Times :

"Jugofresh founder Matt Sherman says the reason for the pop-up, billed R+D Kitchen, is to stretch the imagination and skills of Chef Paco. "It’s been great making juice for Miami and it’s been one way to highlight Chef Paco’s talents but the food you’ll see at our R+D Kitchen pop up will be on a level that you haven’t see from us before." To create the pop-up, the 30-seat Jugofresh location will be transformed with intimate lighting and playful decor to compliment the dishes and, of course, the cocktails. The drinks have been developed by Chris Devlin who was tasked with pairing sakes and champagnes with Jugofresh's cold-pressed juices to make healthful and delicious libations. Some examples include the Kyoto Prefecture Social Club, made from raw honey, lime, mint, and organic, unfiltered sake, and the Fresa, Don't Miel at Me with raw honey, muddled strawberries, raw ginger syrup, and organic unfiltered sake. If you insist on keeping you body as an alcohol-free temple, Devlin will also offer a range of cold-pressed juice mocktails." written by Laine Doss.

 

According to worldredeye :

"R+D is not your typical grab-and-go stop you usually experience at jugofresh. Starting today, the pop-up, will be taking over jugofresh and transforming it into a full service dining experience filled with beautifully plated plant-based dishes, organic wine and, yes what we’ve all been waiting for, cocktails! Chef Darren “Paco” Laszlo has curated an extensive menu filled with the freshest, organic eats that is guaranteed to leave any consumer wanting more. Chris Devlin has joined “Paco” in adding his touch to the cocktail selection. The two of them are spearheading this amazing project and showing Miami what clean eating is all about. “Most people who open raw/vegan restaurants in Miami have no culinary experience, so having Chef Darren “Paco” Laszlo with such a strong culinary background makes a huge difference,” exclaims Sherman."

Stephen Starr brings his popular eatery, The Continental, to South Beach. The restaurant embodies the spirit of the original, now in its 20th year, with a menu of eclectic global dishes, many designed to share. Dine in the mid-century modern dining room or chill on the lush tropical patios. Also a great spot to grab a drink, the cocktail list is as creative as the cuisine with a focus on curated spirits, fresh ingredients, and tiki inspired recipes. Open for dinner (breakfast and lunch coming soon), make The Continental your go-to place for all things food and drink. Here is more information about The Continental :

 

According to Urban Daddy :

"Stephen Starr, professional restaurant launcher and the guy behind Makoto and Steak 954, has two of these Continental places in Philadelphia.  But this one’s a mid-century-modern throwback of a joint with hovering greenery, brick mosaic walls and mismatched light fixtures. There’s also an outdoor patio with picnic tables, banana-leaf curtains and blue umbrellas. But it’s way too damn hot to be outside right now ... and so you’ll go inside for your martini and/or something of the classic-cocktail ilk.  Which means you should probably order something to eat.  Martinis don’t soak up themselves. But the cheesesteak egg rolls and Foie Gras “McGriddle” with fried egg, cheese, bacon and hollandaise on maple griddle cakes should help complement the aforementioned martinis."

 

According to Eater :

"Heading up the kitchen is Matthew Oetting, who most recently was executive chef of Starr’s Caffe Storico in New York City, but who is no stranger to South Florida heading up the kitchen at BLT Steak and the now closed Tosca prior to his work with Starr. On the menu expect "shareable" dishes like build-your-own sushi, "vegetables on ice" (aka crudité) and burgers. Drinks were apparently a "driving force behind the success of the original Continental" and therefore will be a focus of the Miami Beach version of The Continental as well. The 225-seat restaurant features "modernized throwback glamour" designed by Shawn Hausman Design. The Continental is now open daily lunch and dinner, with breakfast and brunch coming soon. To make a reservation call 305-604-2000." written by Olee Fowler.

 

According to Herald :

"The Continental is Starr’s fourth restaurant in South Florida, joining Steak 954 in Fort Lauderdale, Makoto in Bal Harbour and Verde at the Pérez Art Museum Miami. And it isn’t his last: Starr, a 2015 South Florida Food 50 winner, has a French restaurant coming this fall to the Shops at Bal Harbour. He talked Monday — between test bites of shrimp cocktail, tuna tataki and angel hair pasta — about his bullishness on the South Florida food scene and his philosophy behind what makes a successful restaurant. Starr said he’s still ironing out a name for his French-leaning concept in Bal Harbour’s luxury mall. The restaurant is going into the former La Goulue space, neighboring Makoto, which Starr opened in 2011." written by Evan S. Benn.

La Savina at Mondrian South Beach is ceasing only dinner service as of July 15 to make way for something perhaps more memorable,  the Brooklyn-based MoMo Sushi Shack, which will be collaborating with Mondrian's executive chef Dustin Atoigue to bring their clever menu that includes innovative sushi and extensive vegan/veggie options to the poolside venue. MoMo Sushi Shack specializes in Japanese tapas and sushi featuring extensive vegetarian and vegan options. They pops up starting yesterday and will go through till October at the Mondrian South Beach. Here is more information about MoMo Sushi Shack :

 

According to New Times :

"To carry out the philosophy of Momo Sushi Shack and re-create the menu, the team will collaborate with Mondrian's executive chef Dustin Atoigue. Atoigue was the opening chef at Katsuya, Hyde at the American Airlines Arena, and Hyde Beach. Our menu is pretty extensive, he says. "We get stuff flown in every day." In other words, you'll eat fish that woke up in Tokyo. After much back and forth, Gilmour has decided that at first they'll stick with signature items from the Brooklyn outpost. "I was going crazy in the beginning cause there's so many cool ingredients in South Florida and a big part of what we do is farm-to-table. But we want to do the core dishes from Momo." Since most of the menu is farm-to-table, however, Momo Sushi Shack will offer a limited menu that bridges the gap between fun, quirky sushi and the traditional stuff. "We have fun with our food, but we take it very seriously as far as where we source ingredients, even if it’s vegetables or ice." Indeed, a big part of Momo Sushi Shack's Brooklyn menu caters to vegetarians and vegans. " written by Carla Torres.

 

According to Urban Daddy :

"Momo Sushi Shack, a temporary residence for Japanese whiskey and sushi bombs (we’ll get to those in a minute) straight out of Brooklyn, open tomorrow through October at the Mondrian. Take a look around (this slideshow might help). Yep, still the same beautiful Sunset Lounge. Except upon closer inspection, there’s Japanese whiskey. A lot of it. Gracing the bar. If you’ve deduced that something’s afoot, well, you’re right. Because the guys behind Bushwick’s eclectic sushi hang have temporarily taken over the space with their sashimi and maki know-how. And they’ve brought a pretty magnificent Japanese whiskey bar and sake menu with them, too. You’ll be with a date out on the patio, right as the sun is setting. You’ll start with some fried soft-shell crab and seared salmon belly, among other things."

 

According to Hotel Chatter :

"Momo Sushi Shack, which opens this Thursday and will be open through October. New Yorkers may know Momo Sushi Shack from its location in cool-kid Bushwick. In addition to sushi, the Japanese restaurant serves a bunch of vegan and vegetarian dishes and, naturally, has a big focus on ingredients from indie and local purveyors. With arguably the best sunset views on the beach, thanks to its perch on the western side of South Beach, overlooking Biscayne Bay, Mondrian is a great spot for happy hour. So it makes sense that the Momo Sushi pop-up will be accompanied by a Japanese Whiskey Bar. Small plates will range from $6-$15 each, making this incredibly reasonable by Miami standards."

A New Mediterranean place has opened at South Beach called Byblos. Byblos brings the exciting flavours of the Eastern Mediterranean to diners in a progressively designed space. Byblos represents a marriage of Eastern Mediterranean cuisine with strong influences from both traditional and local ingredients. Using time-honored classic cooking techniques and modern methods the menu is a true coastal and cultural mosaic, served family style in a convivial atmosphere. Here is more information about Byblos Miami :

 

According to Urban Daddy :

"Thank you, Toronto is probably something you’ll be uttering soon. Because that’s where this place hails from. Maybe Canada’s making up for those ketchup chips. Who knows. Anyway, here are three things you’ll want to keep in mind before stepping inside.
1. The Mediterranean decor is strong with this one. Feels like you’re feasting in a Turkish boudoir. Plush blue cushioned couches, whitewashed oak, accordion-style art on the walls and silver lanterns.
2. Hope you like meze. Try the black-truffle pide, a wood-fired flatbread stuffed with halloumi. And the prime ribeye in za’atar butter. So, yes, you like meze.
3. Drinks. Allow us to suggest the cold-tea service. It’s Moroccan mint and spiced ginger tea spiked with the likes of gin and bourbon before being served on a silver platter."

 

According to Digest :

"Located adjacent to the Royal Palm South Beach Miami, Byblos is inspired by the Eastern Mediterranean region featuring a sophisticated lounge on the main floor and opulent 200-seat dining room upstairs. Executive Chef Stuart Cameron helms the kitchen and creatively integrates the flavors of Eastern Mediterranean cuisine with ingredients that are unique to Florida. Flavors are bold, yet subtle. Among our favorite dishes are the Lamb Ribs. They are prepared sous vide to yield deliciously tender meat and are then lightly glazed with carob molasses and coated with Dukkah (an Egyptian blend of herbs, nuts and spices). The ribs are served atop buttermilk sauce with a touch of red chili chug."

 

According to World Eye :

"This week, Toronto-based hospitality moguls Charles Khabouth and Hanif Harji hosted a series of private dinners at the highly anticipated Byblos Miami. Byblos with Executive Chef Stuart Cameron, which gained immediate success after its Toronto launch early last year, is set to officially open its doors Wednesday, July 22nd at 1545 Collins Avenue adjacent to The Royal Palm South Beach. The 200-seat restaurant is poised to bring diners the vibrant and exciting flavors of the Eastern Mediterranean and quickly become part of Miami’s blossoming culinary scene."

 

According to Ocean Drive :

"For a restaurant to cook rice to order is ambitious, but at the Eastern Mediterranean eatery Byblos (named after one of the oldest inhabited cities in the world), à la minute is the standard for every one of the six basmati rice dishes on the menu. Not a lot of kitchens want to do that, says Executive Chef Stuart Cameron. But part of Persian cuisine is all about rice and the way it’s done. What Cameron does at Byblos, which is now occupying the former Catch space in the Shorecrest building at The Royal Palm in South Beach, is marry old-world flavors with modern methods and some novel ingredients. Some things you can’t change because they’re so good, he says, referring to the jeweled basmati rice. In Middle Eastern cuisine, so many different regions do the exact same dish, and everyone says they created [it]." written by Carla Torres.

At Beachcraft, Tom Colicchio takes his signature American farm-to-table style and marries it with a Mediterranean sensibility to create a restaurant reminiscent of a seaside grill. The exhibition kitchen will feature a large custom-made Grillworks Infierno from which simply-prepared, just-caught fish and seafood emerge. The menu will be comprised of dishes featuring the best seasonal produce to accompany pristine fish. A full raw bar, abundant salads, freshly-made pastas and signature pizzas will complete the menu. An open kitchen outfitted in navy blue fixtures gives way to a large rectangular bar offering beer, wine and cocktails, connected to a full raw bar and outdoor seating. Up one flight of stairs, the second floor mezzanine offers an additional bar, a covered outdoor patio and shaded seating reserved for private dining options. Opening since last month at 1 Hotel South Beach, Beachcraft seems to have gathered quite a crowd. Here is more information about Beachcraft :

 

According to Urban Daddy :

"The space is magnificent. Like a Hamptons beach house with a green thumb. All rock walls, warm woods and small plants on the bar that can be used to spruce up your drink. So if you find your gin-and-St-Germain-filled Euro-Trip is lacking in the basil department, you can own that situation. As one does. That generous raw bar in the middle: a strategic starting point. Round up a small tower of razor clams and oysters. Then, slide into one of the brown leather booths for wine and sea urchin bucatini with a pescetarian-leaning date."

 

According to Miami.com :

"Beachcraft shares the same eco-conscious luxe feel as the hotel, all organic cotton and botanical musk. The food, likewise, focuses on sustainable seafood and produce, most of which is composed as small plates that average about $18, with outliers like a $210 raw-bar tower or $11 for an order of cheesy, creamy chorizo croquette balls.  You’re not going to find Colicchio cooking (the couple celebrating a birthday at the table next to us was crushed at the news). But executive chef Michael Fiorello, a South Florida native, adeptly handles the job at Beachcraft while simultaneously overseeing Colicchio’s other menus at the property. " written by Evan S. Benn.

 

According to New Times :

"Staying in line with 1 Hotel & Homes sustainable look and feel, Beachcraft's design is the work of Meyer Davis studio (responsible for other stunners like Corsair, Lure, and the Dutch). Think modern beach house meets Texas ranch with tons of the natural elements in the hotel – rock walls, shrubs for both décor and cocktail use, and wine boxes repurposed into paper napkin holders and other utilities. Inviting leather booths have been created from leather and an outdoor herb garden highlights the restaurant's farm-to-table philosophy. They grow everything from lemongrass to citrus trees, cocoa trees, and dark opal basil. The menu will change seasonally, but don't be surprised to finds novel dishes. We're changing every single night, says food and beverage director Kevin D'Antonio. Keeping some of our core standbys but always introducing new items according to whatever is available." written by Carla Torres.

 

According to travelandleisure :

"At Beachcraft, which opened to the public over the weekend, Colicchio is working with executive chef and South Florida homeboy Michael Fiorello. The tone is blissfully serene—no pounding house music, like most South Beach restaurants—and decidedly eco-friendly. Designed by Meyer Davis Studio, Beachcraft is done up in petrified wood coffee tables and reclaimed wood ceilings. The food, prepared in an open kitchen, is similarly thoughtful, with biodynamic sparkling wine from Oregon’s King Estate and antibiotic-free meat dishes. Reister Farms’ Lamb Chops with Harissa Yogurt & Eggplant Caponata is one of Beachcraft’s featured attractions. The other highlights of the menu include an exclusive dish—Beets Corvelli with Artichokes, Cured Olives, Anchovies, & Cherry Peppers (pictured)—as well as the Manila Clam Flatbread with Pancetta & Oregano." written by Tom Austin.

 

According to Yelp :

"First, let me start with the service. BY FAR, the best service I have received in a restaurant in Miami. PERIOD. From the attention at arrival to the constant great service throughout the meal, this was solid. The waiters were great and even the Manager (Rafaela) came over many times to make sure we were doing great. Where else can you get that? Now, let's get to the food. We had 11 dishes in total and I honestly don't think I had one bad dish. From the chicken liver mousse (insane), to the live scallop ceviche (yes, they have the LIVE scallops right there and they chuck them before they serve this), to the charred escarole with pork belly porchetta. Just crazy good" written by Hugo (rated 5 stars).
