The Dining Room at Vesper
SoFi’s The Dining Room has left its Washington Avenue space in favor of a pop-up at the Shelborne South Beach—replacing Vesper Brasserie. Now called The Dining Room at Vesper, the restaurant focuses on small plates and market-driven fare by chef Horacio Rivadero. Fans of the SoFi predecessor will be happy to find an extended wine list, alfresco seating, and new cocktails. Opening just in time to participate in Miami Spice, the restaurant will serve a special three-course menu ($39) through September. Menu options range from tamarind-glazed pork belly with blue potato purée to sweet potato gnocchi with beet tomato sauce and goat cheese foam. The grand finale? A milky caramel sponge cake with mango and apple granita. The Dining Room at Vesper will be open Tuesday to Saturday, from 6 PM to midnight. 1801 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305-397-8444
