Well what can I say. Food is to die for - was amazing. We very nearly never came here as we were reminded on 3 occasions of their strict dress code. However when we arrived there were diners in T shirts, trainers, and clothing that we were told was not allowed. This really should be reviewed. We stuck to the dress code and was more than happy to do so. It would have been such a shame not to have dined at Zuma as it is definitely one not to be missed if you want amazing food. Max took care of us and recommended all the great options. Definitely one for us when we are in town.

Market Cuisine
Design District
About the restaurant
Swan, the famed Miami Design District restaurant and lounge from David Grutman and Pharrell Williams, announces the introduction of a brand new menu.
Designed around market-driven ingredients, Swan’s updated culinary offering focuses on lighter fare with highly shareable appeal. It’s Miami’s version of a brasserie: bright and energetic, yet imbued with the spirit of a classic European eatery. Seafood-centric small plates–such as Chilled Oysters, Charred Octopus, and Bluefin Tuna Roses–introduce this menu, leading into highlights such as Lemon Garlic Chicken, Blueberry Filet and Spicy Vodka Veal Parmigiana. Throughout, locally-sourced produce complements the freshness. Interspersed are Groot Hospitality house favorites such as Chips & Caviar, Hamachi Crudo and Everything Bagel Parker House Rolls.
This reformatted approach keeps in line with Swan’s popular taste, but elevates it to something a bit more magical–and therefore, more Miami.

Delayed flight led us to stay in Miami for the evening. Thanks to Monroe Steele’s vlog/IG, I found this lovely restaurant. Food was delicious (still thinking about the octopus) and service was super efficient.

Restaurant was beautiful with a very cool vibe and great music. The food was absolutely amazing and while I usually never order dessert, the pavlova is something I will be coming back for as much as I can before I leave town. 10/10 no notes.
