Chef Olivia Ostrow, namesake Ostrow Brasserie is now open! Located in the trendy Buena Vista neighborhood, two minutes north of the Design District, the restaurant highlights the best of French cuisine with a twist—it’s kosher!

Throughout her three-decade career, Chef Olivia has successfully pushed the boundaries of gastronomy. This latest venture, created with partner Eli Dadon, aims to elevate kosher dining into an unforgettable culinary adventure. The innovative brasserie will feature traditional French dishes, a sophisticated design, an open kitchen, and a tropical oasis back patio.

Like all certified Glatt Kosher restaurants, Ostrow Bistro will be supervised by a mashgiach to ensure kosher standards are being upheld. Chef Olivia has successfully modified French favorites into kosher-style items with creative substitutions like vegan cheese from Israel.

“I am so excited to bring this new concept to Miami,” said Chef Olivia. “I am creating a type of cuisine that doesn’t exist. It’s perfect for the up-and-coming Buena Vista neighborhood just north of Wynwood and the Design District. I am considering opening the first Kosher-French restaurant in Miami, but I’m up for the challenge. My goal is to be the first kosher restaurant in Florida to earn a Michelin.”
Chef Olivia honed her craft by traveling the world and acquiring new cooking techniques in every country she visited, including a stint in Israel. In the 2010s, back in America, she launched “O’s Gourmet Catering,” an international catering company on Florida’s Treasure Coast. Finding success in Jensen Beach, she debuted two restaurants, O’s Café and O’cean Café, which were immediate hits.

It allowed the chef to polish her management and front-of-house skills while working with prodigious restaurateur Stephen Starr in Miami and as the Food and Beverage Director at the prestigious Savoy Hotel in South Beach. Ostrow Bistro is the culmination of all these experiences.

A secret garden is near the back of the restaurant, past two glass doors. This lush and verdant space will be open for regular dining and private parties and events. It’s also dog friendly for guests accompanied by their pets.
Ostrow Brasserie is located at 4850 NW 2nd Ave in Miami; and will be open for dinner from Sunday to Thursday every week. For further information about Ostrow Brasserie, please visit www.ostrowbrasserie.com.
