Cast on 11th and Collins inside the first floor of the Dream South Beach, this hotel dining room gets its name from the former Tudor House hotel it occupies. Inside, a lofty ceiling trimmed in white plaster molding frames an elegant space that mixes a deco history with a sophisticated design palette of dark woodwork and modern décor. Surrounded by wall of glass with floors laid in terrazzo, the focal point of the dining room is the veiny marble bar that runs along one side with polished selection of South Beach locals enjoying fruity cocktails and spirits from tattooed mixologists recruited from NYC.
An all-day menu benefits from Zakarian's French training with morning dishes like Tudor House hot cakes and wild mushroom frittata. Lunch is similar to dinner but with salad options like panzanella Greek salad or Cuban style” pressed sandwich. Dinner offers appetizers like chicken liver pate and English pea soup followed by a selection of mains from organic buttermilk fried chicken and sirloin strip to braised beef short ribs and Florida grouper.
NYC’s Geoffrey Zakarian leads Dream Hotel dining room that’s a tasty and stylish treat in an idyllic location.
