This November The Strand Bar & Grill will open its doors in a beautiful shorefront setting on Miami Beach. This new dining concept, located at the Carillon Miami Wellness Resort, will deliver a seasonal, ingredient-driven menu of carefully considered new American fare infused with innovative touches. Executive Chef Stephen Ullrich, a Miami native and industry veteran boasts a prestigious pedigree. He was an executive sous chef at Seasonal in New York City when the restaurant was awarded a Michelin Star; most recently he oversaw operations at Tom Colicchio’s since-closed Beechcraft. With Ullrich in the kitchen and a seasoned management team in place, The Strand promises to be a truly exceptional, elevated dining experience with universal appeal that draws its clientele from visitors as well as members of the residential neighborhood it is located in.
The menu will feature an approachable assortment of dishes that highlight South Florida’s organic community, sourcing ingredients from local boutique farms. Suitable for all palates including the calorie-conscious, highlights will include: Stracciatella with black Mission figs, basil and chicory greens; Sea Scallops with Jerusalem artichoke, pomegranate, Brussels sprouts, and mushroom jus; Snapper Crudo with asparagus, yuzu, radish and rice crisp; Lamb Three Ways – lamb loin, belly, and merguez sausage, served with smoked yogurt, za’atar, and cucumber gremolata; Squid Ink Tagliatelle with shrimp, tomato and broccoli crema, and a selection of fresh, seasonal seafood from the raw bar including Caviar Pie with house-made buckwheat blini.
The restaurant and bar will reside in an open and natural contemporary space accented by warm woods, earth tones and hues of gold, creating a refuge for guests and locals alike to gather, mingle and indulge. An expansive outdoor terrace can accommodate up to 106, while the welcoming main dining room will seat 98. A separate lounge and bar area will seat 38 for cocktails and bar bites. For a more intimate experience, the private dining room – The Tambourine Room – can be reserved to host the perfect party for up to 14.
The Strand Bar & Grill is located at the Carillon Miami Wellness Resort on Miami Beach at 6801 Collins Avenue. The restaurant will serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily. Telephone: (305) 514-7474; www.thestrandmiami.com
