Ember
151 NE 41st St. Unit 117
Miami, FL 33137

"I want this restaurant to stand out for its intense tastes using spices and layering flavors. Throwing away the rules and stereotypes of a classic bistro, ignoring the fact that only meat needs to be cooked over wood. Taking the melting pot that Miami is and using the entire world as my inspiration to make delicious interesting approachable food."

Like in Lisbon, Miami follows a simple rule when it comes to curation: if it’s good, it goes in the magazine; if it’s great, it goes in the market.

What you’ll find inside is a hand-selected sample of everything you’ll want to eat, drink and see in the 305 all under one roof.

I am thankful for Jennifer, Concierge. She secured us a very hard to come by reservation at Thomas Keller’s new restaurant Surf Club.

Rosa Rosario

Special thanks go to Rosa at the concierge desk and Geoffrey at reception. Rosa recommended an incredible restaurant that was able to meet the diverse needs and wants of everyone in my family, and she and Geoffrey worked to secure a late checkout for us when we were in a bit of a bind, even though the hotel was booked for a busy upcoming weekend.
