New York restaurateurs Chef Andrew Carmellini, Josh Pickard and Luke Ostrom have opened their wildly popular American restaurant, The Dutch, at The W South Beach Hotel & Residences in partnership with Miami impresarios Karim Masri and Nicola Siervo.
The menu at The Dutch will feature fresh fish and shellfish, choice meats and the best local produce available. Dishes are influenced by a range of flavors from the Caribbean to Morocco, the Gulf Coast to the West Coast and Cuba to Italy. Carmellini also draws from a lifetime of family road trips taken from his home in Cleveland to Miami, where his grandfather ran The Surf Club back in the day.
The first of its kind on Miami Beach, the oyster bar will offer an array of seafood including East Coast and West Coast oysters, stone crabs and spicy coconut lobster cocktail. Seafood lovers can feast on two towering shellfish platters – The Biscayne Platter or The Collins Platter.
Entrees pay homage to the local cafes, corner taverns, neighborhood bistros, seaside shacks, roadside joints and all the cultural riches of Miami. A diverse mix of entrees includes a nod to the Italian roots straight away with trofie in pesto with sweet peppers and pine nuts. There is also steamed yellowtail snapper in a Southeast Asian style ginger broth with peppers and mussels; spice-glazed pork chop with roasted apple and mustard greens. Prime meats, served with a slick salad of Swank Farms lettuces, include a 28 ounce veal porterhouse with gremolata; an 18 ounce dry-aged bone-in New York strip and the 40 ounce dry-aged beef ribeye for two. Side dishes include patatas bravas; root spinach with shallots and chili; and roasted Brussels sprouts with bacon and breadcrumbs.
Designed for Miami by Meyer Davis Studio (Locanda Verde) to feel airy and fresh, the high-ceilinged 170-seat indoor-outdoor restaurant and bar is where NYC meets Miami Beach. Reflecting Carmellini’s roots-inspired American cuisine, every material reflects honesty; from the natural light oak floors to the white brick walls, zinc bar top, greyed driftwood beams, framed photographs of old Florida and other accents, all lighten and color the space with cultural references. Outdoor seating on the terrace faces the Grove and beyond, and a private dining room is set aside for intimate gatherings of 14.
