COOL SPOTS : LOOK UP... ITS JUVIA MIAMI



Juvia Miami Beach

























As Lincoln Road tries to recapture its glory days of the past, we've been seeing many designer boutiques and restaurants pop up in the area. One of the newest kids on the block is Juvia, an indoor/outdoor restaurant located on the penthouse level of the 1111 Lincoln Rd building. We love the semi-secret entrance that you have to know is there to know that it's there. Once you ride up the elevator and reach the restaurant, you are greeted by the cool roof-top deck which features a vertical garden and gorgeous views of the South Beach Art Deco district, making it the hottest place to be in Miami Beach. If you continue to the dining room, you'll get a trendy beach house vibe similar to that of Soho Beach House's Club Bar. The wait staff is courteous and knowledgeable and the crowd is the typical "size you up and down" Miami- chic.

The appetizers are the best part of the dinner menu. Our faves include: The Salmon Nashi with truffle oil, dry mison and micro arugula; Tuna Poke with sesami chili, hijike, red onion and scallions; Hamachi Espuma with yuzo kosho espuma and micro cilantro; and the Cold Moked Sea Scallop with bloody mary espuma, crispy pancetta and bonito flakes.

Juvia is cool enough for us to recommend it to you so you can experience it for yourself.
Just know that being in the hottest place to be has its price if you know what we mean.

Chefs: Laurent Cantineaux, a protege of Daniel Boulud
Sunny Oh, formerly of Nobu South Beach
Cuisine: Asian with South American flare and classic French techniques
