Artisan Beach House Bal Harbour Opens
Artisan Beach House is one of the years most breathtaking and anticipated new restaurants. The new oceanfront eatery quietly made its debut in The Ritz-Carlton Bal Harbour, Miami in early January. The opening of the striking, waterfront restaurant marks the return of Chef Paula DaSilva to the South Florida scene.
Chef DaSilva first came to prominence as executive chef of 1500 Degrees at Miami Beach’s iconic Eden Roc hotel, where she earned national praise for her rustic, soulful cookery. Artisan Beach House is the second collaboration between DaSilva and restaurant/nightlife impresario Seth Greenberg – the first being 1500 Degrees.
“Paula and I are amazing collaborators,” Greenberg said. “Our perspectives on the industry and feelings about what, ultimately, a restaurant should be about are in sync. She is an amazing talent and we had such a great time working together on 1500 Degrees that when the opportunity came to launch something new, at a property as beautiful as this, the decision to partner up again was an easy one.”
Now open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Artisan Beach House features a tempting and varied menu created by DaSilva and Chef De Cuisine Tony Coddington, a Michelle Bernstein protégé and former collaborator of DaSilva’s.
“My style is very simple – respect for the ingredients, smart sourcing, proper technique and big flavors,” DaSilva said.
The menu begins with a section of Chef’s Bites – an array of ever-changing small plates showcasing DaSilva and Coddington’s current culinary cravings. Current items include Cassoulet with local beans, farm egg and porcini stock; and Salted Fish Croquettes with pickled okra and preserved lemon maionese. Starters include Country-Style Duck Pâté with smoked bacon, house made pickled vegetables and whole grain mustard; and Crispy Pork Belly with house made kimchee and rice cracker.
Composed Mains include a hearty Braised Short Rib with house made tagliatelle, wild mushroom and cream sauce; and Seared Blue Nose Bass with barley, smoked caviar and barigoule sauce. Perfect for sharing, For the Table offerings include Paella with duck confit, artichokes and scallions; and Japanese A5 Wagyu with Himalayan salt and duck fries.
Comforting Desserts are a must and include Peanut Butter Donuts with jelly and roasted banana ice cream; Salted Caramel Panna Cotta with caramel popcorn, chocolate and caramel cream; Triple Chocolate Dream with mousse, cake & bar and orange caramel; and Oreo Ice Cream Sammy with chocolate whoopie pie cookie.
The venue boasts a light, airy palette that exude a coastal elegance that is simple by design, letting the water views take center stage. Designed by Petra Hausberger in conjunction with Greenberg, Artisan Beach House features indoor and outdoor waterfront dining and lounge space, as well as several unique special events venues. With multiple convertible event spaces and amazing food & beverage options available, guests can personally tailor the space and menu to fit their needs and budget.
Artisan Beach House is now open and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. Plus a daily Happy Hour from 4 – 6PM.
Artisan Beach House is located at The Ritz-Carlton, Bal Harbour at 10295 Collins Avenue.
