The W South Beach Hotel attracts a sophisticated traveler who is not likely to be wowed by run-of-the-mill hotel dining, so Miami party pros Karim Masri & Nicola Siervo tapped hot New York restaurateur Andrew Carmellini – who spent childhood summers in Florida – to develop The Dutch, an American bistro & bakeshop serving “roots-inspired dishes for big-city palates.” What this means to the hungry diner is a dazzling display of house made sweets and fresh breads, pristine selections from the raw bar and plenty of local produce transformed into Florida yellowtail crudo, mahi-mahi tagine and steamed red snapper in a coconut curry broth.

The nattily appointed dining room and breezy patio attract a well-dressed crowd enjoying selections from the chef’s snack menu paired with a roster of signature cocktails infused with seasonal berries, muddled watermelon or even bacon-infused bourbon. During steamy South Beach summers, the chef rolls out his smoker to host a series of Bourbon, Beer and BBQ Wednesdays featuring All-American, St. Louis, Korean and Hawaiian-style prix fixe menus. Limited duration specials like late-night pizza parties and all-you-can-eat Fried Chicken Sundays have also proved very popular. At the W Hotel, The Dutch makes comfort food fashionable.
