Juvia Restaurant Review:

About the restaurant: This indoor/outdoor penthouse restaurant’s design is by Venezuelan architect/interior designer Alejandro Barrios-Carrero, with lush “vertical gardens” by French botanist Patrick Blanc. Indeed, the water and city views, especially from the outdoor patio, showcase SoBe at its most glamorous.

Food & Drinks: The menu features influences from French, Japanese and Peruvian cuisines. Diners can start off with composed cold seafood small plates plus raw bar items, the latter available with a choice of beautifully balanced sauces. Small plate highlights include a hamachi espuma crudo, delicate yellowtail petals topped with a foam that’s both citrusy and satisfyingly creamy. Entrées and other cooked dishes range from sake and soy marinated Chilean sea bass with crispy leeks to braised beef stew with mashed potatoes to Korean marinated short ribs from the charcoal grill. The wine list, while not among Miami’s most extensive, is carefully chosen to pair well with the food. But it’s trendy cocktails that rule. As for desserts, chocoholics will appreciate the gold leaf-decorated “candy bar.”
