Summer In Miami at Lure, Seagrape and The Dutch

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.
