Coming Soon: Malibu Farm Miami Beach

Let the countdown to April 2017 begin

It seems like just yesterday that Nobu Eden Roc Miami Beach (and with it, the famed Nobu restaurant) first graced our Miami Beach shores; but somehow, it feels like a lifetime since Miami foodies first heard about the hotel’s soon-to-come second restaurant: the wildly-acclaimed Malibu Farm {4525 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach; 305.531.0000}. The brainchild of beloved chef and Swedish transplant, Helene Henderson, this Malibu restaurant and A-list hangout is popular for its California-style, farm-to-fork food and beachfront vibes. And like its original, the second outpost, which will sit beachside at the Nobu Eden Roc Hotel Miami Beach, will impress diners with its delicate fusion of Scandinavian fare and local, Florida ingredients. Lucky for us Miamians, we’ll get a chance to taste this hot new spot very soon–the much-anticipated Malibu Farm Miami will finally open to the public in April 2017.

So what’s so special about the food? In short, everything. By combining her Swedish roots with California’s fresh, healthy eating, each item on the menu is seasonal, organic and prepared with little-to-no fuss. Different from its Malibu sister, the Miami edition of the restaurant will have a wood-burning oven, and from it, we can expect delights like zucchini-, cauliflower- or regular-dough pizzas, topped with indulgent flavors like local calahoo spinach, Miami Smokers’ bacon, and even organic eggs. If you want something a little more filling, the grass-fed Beef Sirloin with chile cherry tomatoes and açai bowls is sure to please, while lighter options like pea and pesto couscous, Swedish pancakes, smoked salmon, ricotta scrambled eggs or vegan, gluten-free granola never disappoint. No matter what you order, for Helene Henderson, it’s all about making food that makes us feel good inside and out. Pair it with something from the drink menu–like a Bloody Mary, wine, frosé, or one of the  organic and agave-based handcrafted cocktails, like the Smoke with mezcal shishito, chipotle agave, and fresh-squeezed lime juice–and you’ll see what we mean.

Happy dining!
