Wynwood patrons and foodies will have yet another reason to rejoice come this fall. Goldman Properties founder Tony Goldman, who runs Joey’s and Wish, will add to the revamping of the neighborhood with Wynwood Kitchen & Bar. The restaurant, which is a partnership with his daughter Jessica Goldman Srebnik, is described as an “American brasserie.”
The 5,000-square-foot, warehouse-style restaurant will premier during Art Basel, so the opening could not come at a better time for all the international guests. The menu is also something to boast about. Marco Ferraro, Jean Georges’ protégé, will craft the menu and graffiti artist Shephard Fairey and Christian Awe will decorate the restaurant with murals. If you’re looking for a good time with a few drinks, the creative cocktails are named after artists within the Wynwood area.
