With three gourmet restaurants and a great bar, you’ll find plenty of great things to eat and drink at The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort. However, we think you definitely should order these delectable bites:
1. Roasted line-caught grouper at J&G Grill. Jean-Georges Vongerichten is known for his seamless blend of East-West flavors, and you’ll experience it in dishes like this entrée served at the hotel’s main restaurant. The tender Florida grouper is dressed with black bean vinaigrette and served with bok choy.
2. Tuna ribbons at J&G Grill. A Vongerichten signature, this riff on tuna tartare pairs the pink fish with spicy radish slices and a tangy ginger marinade for a refreshing combination.
3. Champagne at The St. Regis Bar & Wine Vault. You’ll find delectable Bloody Marys (including a zesty Miami-inspired version made with Clamato juice and a key lime ice cube) and great warm weather cocktails like the tequila-based Paraíso, but the bubbly selection at the hotel’s main bar is really special. With over 50 bottles represented, you’ll find a range of sparklings like California’s Schramsberg Mirabelle and Domaine Carneros alongside such esteemed vintage champagnes as Krug Collection 1989, Bollinger La Grande Année 2002 and Dom Pérignon Oenothéque 1996. Sommelier Sebastien Verrier even has sourced boutique producers like Paul Goerg and Egly-Ouriet that off a singular experience.
4. Ceviche at Fresco. Dining outside requires cooling food, especially when the weather in Miami is hot, hot, hot. Try one of the three ceviches, which include an Asian tuna option and a Mexican-style shrimp version.
5. Eggs Benedict at Atlantico. The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel’s sunny breakfast room serves all of your morning favorites with a few Miami culinary twists. We love their version of eggs Benedict, which comes with double-smoked Canadian bacon and a tangy key lime truffle hollandaise.
