NY restaurateur Andrew Carmellini has opened a Miami branch of his Soho restaurant, The Dutch, along with partners Josh Pickard and Luke Ostrom (New York’s Locanda Verde) in the W South Beach.
To infuse some local flavor into the eclectic cuisine (think: Morocco, Caribbean, Cuba and Italy), Carmellini has added new dishes like sour orange pie, the Biscayne platter and grouper sandwiches to the menu. As in NYC, the new spot features an oyster bar. Bev director Joshua Nadel rounds out the mix with a varied wine and cocktail selection. Designed by Meyer Davis Studio (Locanda Verde), the airy space boasts a high ceiling, 170 seats both indoors and out, oak floors, brick walls, vintage Floridian accents and zinc fixtures. --Toni Kervina
