This fall, South Floridians will have more to cheer for than just football. From a Manhattan hotspot to Miami’s first official bocce court, restaurateurs are making sure the SoFla restaurant scene gets even hotter as the temperature drops outside. Here are a few of the most anticipated openings.
This month, Porcão Farm to Grill will be opening up shop in Miami’s Brickell neighborhood. Guests can expect a 10,500 square-foot multi-venue dining and entertainment experience, including a speakeasy and lounge. The kitchen will be headed by Executive Chef Jeff O’Neil, who has worked with the likes of Daniel Boulud and Eric Ripert, and the menu will offer on-site dry-aged meats, charcuterie and cheeses, sustainable seafood and organic produce.
Lure Fishbar Miami has been a New York City staple for years, and lucky for us, they’re heading down our way in November to the Loews Miami Beach Hotel. Like the Manhattan location, restaurateurs John McDonald, Josh Pickard, and Josh Capon will feature a swanky yacht-inspired design, and a menu offering their famed raw and sushi bar offerings, and Miami inspired dishes.
Also in November, Meat Market Palm Beach, named by Condé Nast as one of “Miami’s Buzziest Restaurants,” will be opening its second location on Palm Beach island. Restaurateur David Tornek and partner, Chef Sean Brasel, will offer Palm Beachers a taste of prime cuts of beef, fresh local seafood, and a crudo bar offering East and West Coast oysters, ceviches, and tiraditos.
The team at Samba Brands Management is bringing us yet another concept, Bocce Bar, which will be opening in Midtown Miami in December. Executive Chef Timon Balloo of SUGARCANE raw bar grill will be at the helm of the kitchen, which will be serving up small plates including crudos, house-made pastas and fresh-baked breads. Expect a bocce court (the first official one in the city to be exact) and Vespa parking in front.
