The pristine Asian-inspired décor, the prime oceanfront location, the peaceful setting in the heart of trendy South Beach, the staff’s brilliant attention to detail…it’s no wonder that The Setai, South Beach is one of the world’s most desirable luxury hotels. This summer, in honor of its fifth anniversary, The Restaurant at The Setai is giving us even more to be impressed by.
To start off, The Restaurant’s award-winning chef Jonathan Wright has launched a newly crafted menu that combines fresh, local ingredients with Asian-inspired recipes to create truly delectable and authentic cuisine. Some of the highlights include the crispy Peking duck and the whole dungeness black pepper crab. The open kitchen theater allows diners to watch in amazement as each dish is intricately prepared by the team of expert chefs from all over the world.
Guests can also choose to order the chef’s weekly three-course “Summer at The Setai” pre-fix menu, which allows them to select from three specialty appetizers, entrees and desserts. In addition, The Restaurant will offer “Bottleshock,” a hand-selected wine list by The Setai’s sommelier Dwayne Savoie featuring more than 60 fine wines from all over the world at a 40 percent discount.
