Lightkeepers, the casually elegant new restaurant and bar, has opened at The Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne, Miami. Lightkeepers features a contemporary, coastal-inspired dining room, an indoor/outdoor bar and a beverage program featuring unique, hand-crafted cocktails.
The menu, executed by Executive Chef Raul A. Del Pozo, relies on locally sourced ingredients – cheeses from Winter Park, beef from Ocoee, and snapper from Key West.
“Locally grown and caught ingredients are key to the quality and diversity of the menu,” Del Pozo said. “We use modern cooking techniques and charcoal and wood burning Josper ovens to enhance flavors.”
Named as an homage to the lighthouse keepers who watched over Key Biscayne’s historic Cape Florida Lighthouse in the 1800’s, Lightkeepers is poised to become a premier waterfront dining destination in South Florida.
Highlighting the space is an open air, stainless steel kitchen that overlooks the dining area and is also home to the raw bar. Views of the Atlantic and pool-scape can be seen from almost every angle of the restaurant, including the indoor/outdoor bar and private dining space
