Buccan Restaurant Review

: Buccan is the culinary vision of chef Clay Conley, who made a name for himself at Azul in the Mandarin Oriental, Miami. He crafts ever-changing small plates that bear his big but balanced flavors. The result is an unpretentious and affordable retro modern spot that draws everyone from Palm Beach society to young hipsters. The menu offers short rib empanadas with creamy aji amarillo sauce; pork belly cheddar grits with peaches and brown sugar bourbon glaze; and pastas like hand-cut fettuccine with Maine lobster and black truffle butter. Dessert could be blueberry cake with lemon tarragon cream. Frequent winemaker tasting events also encourage discovery, as does a glassed-in wine room presenting a global selection focusing on unusual boutique producers.
