About the restaurant
Established in 2012 as Miami's premier destination for contemporary comfort, Blue Collar is the labor of love from Chef Daniel Serfer ( New Times Best chef 2015), a Miami native. We offer an unprecedented selection of amazing meats and vegetables, served from a menu that allows you to customize your plate exactly how you want it. If you'd like to have a gut busting indulgent cheat meal, we got you. At the same time if you wanna keep it super light or even vegetarian/vegan, we can cover that too. Rounding out the menu is an exceptional selection of craft beers, and fine wines. Save room for dessert, our Heath Bar and Butterscotch bread pudding is legendary.

About the restaurant
Ours is a story only Miami can tell. It’s about lands far away but not forgotten, a culture we’re building as we put down roots, and the heights we can reach. Executive Chef and Owner Michael Beltran’s vision — shaped by passion for his Cuban heritage, devotion to championing Miami ingredients and tradition, and commitment to classic French technique — guides one of the city’s most talented restaurant teams in every dish, every drink, every moment at Ariete.

Most important, though, is that you experience delicious food. That you escape. That you feel welcome in our home. Take a ride through a tasting menu or experience our canard à la presse in our dining room. Join us at the bar for our Florida Orange and a cocktail.

From our corner of Coconut Grove, we’ve sent a message: Miami has a place at the global culinary table. In 2022, we put a Michelin Star on the wall. The world is listening.

This is Miami’s food story. We invite you to join us in writing the next chapter.

Our dining experience at Ariete was awesome. Our server was top notch- attentive but not obtrusive. We ordered a very nice bottle of wine - they have improved their wine list - along with our favorite appetizer and entree - scallop and short rib. Outstanding!!

The food and drinks were great - just waited a long time for the server to come and check in on us to order and even when we wanted to pay, but the restaurant was also packed so understand why there was a delay.

About the restaurant
**Note: we reserve tables for walk-ins. If you can’t find your preferred time, feel free to join us in person.**

This tavern is certainly an ode to Florida located in Shenandoah – one of the oldest neighborhoods in the City of Miami – utilizing local ingredients in the menu and showcasing a beautiful Blue Marlin mounted above the bar. With our walls adorned with taxidermy, you would not expect to see a grand piano and to also enjoy a decadent meal with cocktails.

Teamed up with Chef Michael Beltran, is seasoned Chef Kris Huseby, the new executive chef for the property. Chefs Beltran and Huseby have a history of collaboration – previously working together in one of Miami’s best restaurants. The duo has created a superb menu for The Gibson Room.

About the restaurant
Since Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink first opened in the Miami Design District in spring of 2007, diners have come to embrace and crave its refreshing combination of laid-back atmosphere and seriously good food, a neighborhood bistro that is the ultimate showcase for the type of cuisine that chef/owner Michael Schwartz does best – homemade, unpretentious, delectable, with an emphasis on great local ingredients. Bon Appétit Magazine wrote in 2022 "Michael's Genuine is refreshingly approachable yet upscale, offering guests a true neighborhood gem where you can sit back, relax, and enjoy simple, consistently delicious dishes." In 2022, the first Florida MICHELIN Guide honored the restaurant with a Bib Gourmand awards.

Please call for our corkage and cake policies and fees.

About the restaurant
Immerse yourself into a nostalgic world of decadence, glamour, power and inimitable magnificence at Queen Miami Beach. Queen Restaurant & Lounge breathes new life into the iconic Paris Theater, built in 1945 by famed Art Deco architect Henry Hohauser, restoring the property to its original intended glory with over the top 21st-century splendor. The nostalgic design emulates opulence and allure, honoring the glam of the past while envisioning the mystique of the future. From the Rat Pack era of the 1950s to the hedonistic nights of the 1990s, the Paris Theater has evolved with the times, and is reborn for a new generation with the creation of Queen Miami Beach. Executive Chef Mitchell Hesse has designed an exquisite menu of modern Japanese Grill.

Please note we enforce an age policy of 18 years or older before 10 pm and 21 years or older after 10 pm.
