An Intimate Evening at The Dining Room

Nestled just south of bustling 5th Street & Washington Ave is The Dining Room, a cozy 16 table neighborhood bistro with a charm all its own. As you enter the doors the warmth of a single chandelier and the flickering hue of candlelight greet you. Family portraits line the walls and the open kitchen teases you with the promise of the meal to come.

Intimate dining at the cozy Dining Room, Miami Beach. The warm, candle lit interior sets the mood for a romantic evening of fine dining.

Guests are treated to a view of The Dining Room's open kitchen while the freshly baked breads and truffle butter is prepared for your table. 

Scallops, wrapped in serrano ham, foie-gras sherry sauce, herb crostini, an exquisite appetizer and one of our favorite dishes of the night.

Cobia Ceviche, marinated in yuzu lime juice, red onions, cilantro and ají limo, served with grapefruit sorbet. The combination of the fresh local Cobia with the citrus of the grapefruit sorbet makes this a perfect spring/summer time appetizer for those warm Florida nights. 

Crispy Cofit Pork Belly, Carrot Cardomono Puree, Roasted Cauliflower and Brussels sprout with Soy Demi-Glazed. Perfectly cooked, this generous portion can be shared easily between two people. Rich and flavorful this appetizer makes a very filling dish; try paring this with the Heron Pinot Noir from the wine list.

Crispy Braised Pork, green mustard, white bean puree, pickle red radish.

A must try entree: Branzino, lemon-mash potatoes, artichoke escabeche, and oregano oil.

Creative side dishes: Cashew Brussel Sprouts.

If you order one desert while you are here, then make it this: Baked Patagonia - pistachio cake, dulce de leche ice cream, Italian meringue, and passion fruit berry sauce.

Decadent indulgence: Chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate mousse covered with chocolate gouache, hazelnut ice cream, and toasted sesame seed twill.

We cannot wait for our next visit to The Dining Room, it was without a doubt one of the best dining experiences we have had in South Florida in a very long time. Congratulations on making our Top 10 list of Best Restaurants in South Florida.
