Michael Mina 74 will be the first concept of its kind created uniquely for the hotel by the celebrated chef, delivering a dynamic culinary and social destination that – even for Miami Beach – blurs the lines between a restaurant, bar and ultra-lounge.
True to his philosophy that “balance in everything creates memories and experiences”, at Michael Mina 74, Chef Mina has produced a sophisticated American bistro-style menu focused on his passion for unlocking fantastic flavors and irresistible combinations that will complement and satisfy the high-energy yet relaxed rhythm of Miami.
He’s developed a menu with no boundaries, balancing bold, global flavors with elements of spice, richness, acidity and sweetness. Special attention also went into creating fun, whimsical dishes that are easy to share and perfectly suited to Miami’s sultry climate.
“I am delighted to debut Michael Mina 74 at Fontainebleau. It’s truly the perfect balance of delicious food, an upbeat sophisticated ambiance, the magic of Miami Beach and this iconic hotel that will deliver a fantastic dining experience for guests,” said Mina.
The new restaurant will appeal to those who want a dynamic, high-energy scene with their food and drinks, where their evening will transform into an ultra-lounge that embraces the joie de vivre of life, music and people – with a nod to lavish parties. A balance of dimly lit chandeliers, deep leather couches and a welcoming ambiance will transform what starts as an intimate dinner into an endless nighttime celebration.
Michael Mina 74 is being created by the award-winning design firm, AvroKO and will evoke a rich, stylish tone with design details that carefully blend elements of urban street with warm, relaxed comforts of a beachside Mediterranean villa.
“We are honored to bring chef Michael Mina and his new concept to Fontainebleau. Michael Mina 74 will inspire evenings that create vivid experiences and memories for our guests. Michael’s food is unique and exciting and a perfect fit with the sophisticated style and modern glamour Fontainebleau is known for,” said Phil Goldfarb, President and COO of Fontainebleau Miami Beach.
Michael Mina 74 is scheduled to open this November 2013 at Fontainebleau Miami Beach and will debut as the fourth pillar to the successful Signature dining restaurants, including: Scarpetta, Gotham Steak and Hakkasan.
