Celebrity chef, Tom Colicchio, known for the famed Craft restaurants around the United States and being a head judge on Top Chef brings his seasonal sensibility to Miami with Beachcraft located at the 1 Hotel & Homes South Beach. Quintessentially Lifestyle was able to dine at the trending restaurant providing you with some insider knowledge to know before you make your reservation.
Colicchio collaborates with executive chef and South Florida native Michael Fiorello on a menu that features pristine, locally caught fish and antibiotic-free meats accompanied by vibrant produce. An expansive, open kitchen anchors the restaurant, where seafood dishes and vegetables are center stage. A fully stocked raw bar, salads, flatbreads and freshly made pastas round out the Beachcraft experience.
The design by Meyer Davis Studio translates the warmth and sophistication of Colicchio’s legendary Craft restaurants in New York City and Los Angeles to an airy coastal setting. Guests are greeted by a lush green wall leading to the entrance of the two-level restaurant. The ground floor features the 85-seat dining room, outfitted with natural materials such as wood and stone, bronze lighting, caramel leather banquettes, an expansive, concrete-topped bar with seating for 22 and an outdoor patio.
An open kitchen in the rear of the restaurant invites guests to experience the action while enjoying their meal, while an adjacent private dining room on the main floor provides an ideal setting for intimate dinners and celebrations. Above the main dining room, a mezzanine level is outfitted with a private bar and lounge with views of the dining room below and outdoor seating overlooking iconic Collins Avenue.
Quintessentially Lifestyle recommends trying the following dishes: chorizo croquettes, scallop ceviche, garganelli with braised rabbit, dry aged NY strip, and the register farms lamb chops. All were delicious highlighting Colicchio’s exceptional ability to provide a diverse menu where each item complements one another.
