PREVIEW: 33 Restaurant comes to Coconut Grove
The dining scene in Coconut Grove continues to expand, and Chef Sebastian Fernandez is poised and ready to become a big part of it with his new restaurant, 33.
The former Food and Beverage Director of Coral Reef Yacht Club and “Grovite,” Chef Sebastian Fernandez will be introducing a Peruvian influenced theme focusing on service and food quality. Dishes will have a strong emphasis on ingredients, as the menu will change depending on availability.
Their doors will officially opened on Saturday, December 5th. The restaurant’s menu features Peruvian-influenced small plates with a focus on simple, clean flavors. In a welcome shift from over seasoned and over sauced dishes, Chef Fernandez values every component in his dishes, as they have no more than 5 ingredients.
We had opportunity to preview it's menu and found it to be light and flavorful. Its “causa limena” transforms a typically heavy classic into a light, flavorful bite, and its classic corvina ceviche epitomizes the restaurant’s commitment to fresh, quality ingredients. Other menu choices include, Tiradito de Snapper - ginger, aji limo, yuzu, Peruvian corn, sweet potato, a chicha de jora (corn based beer) Lamb Chop with cilantro, Lima butter beans puree, Cured Tuna with soy, radish, fried shitake, aji Amarillo, Mussels with chalaca sauce, plantain chips, Solterito de quinoa (quinoa salad) fresh cheese, edamame, tomato, cucumbers, choclo, Peruvian style fried rice and more. Desserts include a Fried Arroz con leche layered in a Pisco and Vanilla sauce, a Yuzu lime pie made with Japanese citrus and graham crackers and more Latin inspired sweets.
In addition to wine, 33 will offer craft beers including locals from Biscayne Bay Brewing, Concrete Beach, J. Wakefield Brewing, Copperhead from Tampa, and Florida Brewing Company.
Dinner service will take place from 6-11 PM Monday - Sunday and they will be closed Tuesdays.
