First Look: Doré South Beach

February 04, 2013 | Homepage


The rotunda at Doré South Beach 

Meet Doré South Beach, the new-today 7,000-square foot restaurant and lounge nestled inside The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach. On the menu you’ll find European specialties spanning Italy and France, care of executive chef Jeff Pfeiffer. There will be tapas, such as house-cured duck bresaola with fig jam, appetizers, risottos, pastas, and entrées. Standout dishes include a six-hour braised lamb shank with polenta, porcini risotto with mushroom foam and shaved white truffles, and tiger shrimp with hazelnut romesco. And you won’t want for steak options, with a ten-ounce flatiron, eight-ounce filet mignon, and 12 ounce New York strip topping the menu. 

Doré is proudly crowning gourmet sweets as its specialty, putting after-dinner indulgences in the hands of executive pastry chef Kriss Velasco. We can’t wait to try the Poire Belle Hélène, made of poached pear, chocolate sauce, candied almonds, and vanilla ice cream. But the Venezuelan chocolate fondant with salted caramel ice cream is also enticing. If you fancy a cocktail before or after your dessert, the 40-seat rotunda bar area promises to be a cozy, European-style option with live DJs and thoughtful tipples. 1669 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305-695-8696
