“We are thrilled to bring our second Elcielo Miami location to the beautiful SLS South Beach—an iconic destination recognized for its exceptional dining offerings and dynamic atmosphere. Known for its opulent style and world-class guest experience, this property provides the perfect backdrop for Elcielo Miami’s expansion. Elcielo at SLS South Beach will be something unique, unlike Elcielo Medellin, Bogotá, Washington DC, and Brickell in Miami; this will be our first foray into Elcielo a la carte. We will have the best Elcielo dishes available in this new magical location. Classic dishes like the corn arepa and caviar, “árbol de la vida,” ribs in guava and tamarind, and yucca gnocchi with truffle and sweet plantain´s honey will be featured but with an innovative twist and will only be available at the new location, not to mention, in a pairing with the best of our cocktail bar options,” said Chef Juanma.

To end this Colombian feast, guests can delight in the country’s favorite pastry, Meregon, created with a unique twist featuring the star ingredient–Aguardiente.

With an ambitious objective to expand Elcielo restaurants worldwide, SLS South Beach serves as the inaugural launchpad for this venture.
