Matthew Kenney's "Most Beautiful Restaurant" Opens in Miami!
Celebrity chef Matthew Kenny, known for his incredible restaurants such as Double Zero, has announced that his second Plant Food + Wine will open in Miami on February 29!
The first Plant Food + Wine was opened in Venice last year, and while it has been a huge success, Kenney himself has described the second one as “the most beautiful restaurant I’ve ever worked on.” He elaborated in an interview with Miami New Times, stating:
“Restaurants should offer a multisensory experience – taste, sight, touch, smell, sound; all of the elements will be a part of dining at Plant Food + Wine. There is a natural synergy between the space’s vibrant setting, the inspired menu, and the sights and sounds of this great city.”
And what can guests expect to find on the menu? Just some of the options will include romanesco cauliflower with salsa verde with toasted pepita cream topped with preserved lime, black pepper kelp noodles with sunflower cream, spicy greens, green olive purée, and sun-dried olives, and coconut ceviche tacos made with sunflower chorizo, avocado, pico de gallo, and lime crema. A dessert option includes a coconut-based sorbet with candied macadamia and a basil consommé. The restaurant will also include juices, detox drinks, organic wines and sake, as well as seasonal cocktails.
Matthew Kenney Culinary, Kenney’s raw culinary school, is located right by the restaurant, and the chef stated:
“For those who follow a strict vegan diet, we hope to become a place that they visit regularly and even consider joining us for our culinary academy classes to learn more about our dishes and techniques. For those who enjoy a general protein diet, we see Plant Food + Wine as a new restaurant option in Miami where guests can explore what the plant-based food world has to offer in an approachable setting. All in all, we think the menu offers something for everyone, no matter their dietary preferences.”
The restaurant is located at 105 NE 24th St., Miami, and will have its grand opening on the last day of this month–Monday February 29!
