SLS Hotel South Beach offers two main restaurants along with a few lounge spaces. The Bazaar by James Beard Award-winning chef José Andrés offers Spanish- and Latin-influenced dishes such as dragon fruit ceviche, conch fritters and the famous foie gras PB&J sandwich inside two main dining rooms. One space is more elegant, dressed in pearls and a large seashell chandelier, while the other, called Rojo, is made up with dark colors, Asian-influenced décor and a distinctive masked bull head. You can also head outside to Bar Centro, which is part of the restaurant and offers a more laid-back poolside vibe.
The Miami hotel also houses Japanese restaurant Katsuya, which is helmed by master sushi chef Katsuya Uechi. It features delicious dishes such as crispy rice with spicy tuna and miso-marinated black cod dishes, along with captivating cocktails such as the spicy Burning Mandarin (Absolut Mandrin, hand-crushed serrano chili, fresh lemon, orange and cranberry juices) and refreshing Kiwi Envy (St-Germain elderflower, gin, hand-pressed kiwis, lime juice and sparkling water; this also can be sampled upstairs in the adjoining Dragon Lounge). If you’d rather be outdoors, opt to enjoy cuisine from both restaurants in the ultra-cool, laid-back Hyde Beach, the poolside lounge area that provides the right amount of wet-and-wild chaos.
