Miami Beach seems to barely notice that it is the “slow season” as the summer of 2015 is full of special events, pre-fixe menus, summery cocktails and fun. Here is just a sampling from Lure Fishbar, Seagrape and The Dutch.
Lure Fishbar is introducing a three-course summer pre-fixe menu. Executive Chef John Iatrellis has created a menu of delicacies from both land and sea for diners to enjoy throughout the month of July priced at $50 per person, excluding tax and gratuity. The three-course dinner begins with a choice of raw bar platter (dressed oysters, jumbo shrimp and clams); calamari with smoked chili glaze; a chop salad with tangy balsamic dressing; salmon tartare with avocado, ponzu and aji amarillo; or crab cakes. Savory entrees include Lure’s award-winning Bash Style Burger; shrimp risotto with uni crème; Nori crusted tuna served with Chinese broccoli and Jasmine rice; herb roasted chicken with Greek-style oven potatoes, baby artichokes and crispy spinach; and bronzini with cauliflower puree and caramelized fennel.
Select a refreshing summer cocktail from Lure’s award-wining bar menu curated by Bar Director Rob Ferrara. Seasonal libations include the Dr. Greenthumb ($12) made with Avion Silver tequila, fresh kale & cucumber juices, lime and matcha green tea with a spiced salted rim.
