THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Azul Restaurant Review

: This high-profile restaurant in the Mandarin Oriental, Miami, showcases upscale contemporary American cuisine with Asian-inspired twists prepared with precision and elegance by chef de cuisine Benjamin Murray. Private parties can book the 12-seat chef’s table overlooking the white marble kitchen and witness Murray's culinary prowess first hand. The formal dining room features rosewood floors, white linen tablecloths and huge windows framing the bay and city skyline. There are snacks (think barbecue eel and short rib gyoza) and starters ranging from beef tartare with white Worcestershire, egg jam and potato skin to foie gras with beets, lime meringue, peanut and dehydrated pear. Entrées include sea scallops with eggplant katsu, forbidden rice, rutabaga and Parmigiano Reggiano, and Prime beef with tenderloin, oxtail, whipped tofu, celeriac tot and truffle dashi. For dessert: toasted coconut meringue with banana passion fruit cream, mango pearls, and coconut exotic fruit sorbet. The wine list offers several hundred selections.
