May at Villa Azur is All About Florida

This month's ingredient-driven, prix-fixe menu celebrates local produce

Guava and Citrus Tart

Every month, Miami Beach’s sexiest restaurant and lounge, Villa Azur {309 23 Street, Miami Beach; 305.763.8688}, launches a new ingredient-focused tasting menu—and this May, it’s all about staying local.

From now through May 31, haute diners can head to this swanky Mediterranean restaurant and lounge for a three-course Floridian menu inspired by the flavors and ingredients of The Sunshine State. Pairing every dish with the perfect wine, Executive Chef Erwin Mallet has come up a tasty menu that starts with your choice of one appetizer: either Florida Key Shrimp with corn puree, radish, and pickled cucumber from Belle Glade; or a Tomato Tart with cherry tomatoes from Bonita Springs, crispy brick, burratina from Ft. Lauderdale, Chantilly, and basil coulis. Following that, the main dish is Roasted Grouper with sautéed and caramelized sprouts from Miami, crispy kale from Port Lucie, and orange dressing from Belle Glade. Finally, the meal ends on a sweet note with a Guava and Citrus Tart made with fruits from Homestead and Belle Glade.

Want to try it? We do, too! Each menu is priced at $80 for just the food, and $135 with wine pairings.

Happy dining!
