Seawell Fish n’ Oyster and Minnow Bar will open this spring as two new culinary and beverage destinations in Miami Beach’s vibrant North of Fifth neighborhood. With a two-phase opening, the concepts will complement the adjacent Kimpton Angler’s Hotel South Beach’s extensive renovation and reveal of its new interior design, along with its new additional guest rooms and suites on Washington Avenue.
“We’re thrilled to introduce these two new concepts to the neighborhood,” said James Camp, general manager at Seawell Fish n’ Oyster. “Both venues will offer something fresh and unique to the area and, we hope, will easily become local hangout spots. The all-around vibe will lend itself to everything from a laid-back lunch, dinner or late-night cocktails.”
With more than a decade of South Florida culinary expertise, executive chef Julian Garriga will lead the culinary program at Seawell Fish n’ Oyster. Garriga’s menu will highlight tried-and-true classics alongside entrée selections that play with finfish, shellfish and non-seafood items, offering a broad range of flavors that will appeal to all palates. Leading the beverage program at both Seawell and Minnow Bar will be local veteran lead bartender, Chris Resnick.
Adding a brand-new bar concept within Kimpton Angler’s Hotel South Beach’s addition, Minnow Bar is set to open prior to Seawell, this spring. It will house a clear spirits bar where gin will take center stage through herb-infused craft cocktails in a modern and intimate space. Minnow Bar will feature a full service modern-style bar and breezy open terrace.
Following the opening of Seawell, Minnow Bar will begin offering a unique and savory lite bites menu showcasing an assortment of dishes also developed by Garriga.
