We heard there's a new restaurant coming to Miami Beach: Semilla, described by their PR team as a "modern gastropub". Behind the spot is renowned chef and restaurateur Frederic Joulin, who's previously worked Villa Mayfair and Michelin starred restaurants in Paris and Las Vegas.
As per the décor, Semilla will have an "industrial vintage feel" and a "cozy environment lined with wood panels and stainless steel finishes", burlap covered tables, an open kitchen, and walls of terra cotta pots with various seasonal herbs. Food wise, not much has been mentioned yet, save for a "freshly prepared menu" of items "made using primarily organic ingredients". In Spanish, "semilla" means seed, explains Joulin, "we aim to go back to the basics – the initial "seed" (so to speak) of preparing gourmet cuisine – the period before processed food and unpronounceable ingredient names". Once they open (first week of October), they'll be offering dinner Sunday through Thursday from 6 to 11 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 6 p.m. to midnight.
