Soon you'll have another spot to load up on your veggies when DIRT opens in the South of Fifth neighborhood in Miami Beach this September. The restaurant describes itself as a "fine food served fast" concept with a "vegetable forward menu."
The restaurant will offer options for breakfast, lunch and dinner, like savory oatmeal; egg bowls filled with vegetables, grains, and proteins; cold-pressed juices and smoothies with house-made almond and Brazil nut milk; "nourishing sandwiches" amongst other seasonal offerings.
Behind the cuisine is Executive Chef Jonathan Seningen, who most recently was at Washington, D.C.'s vegan eatery, Elizabeth's Gone Raw, along with partners Jeff LaTulippe and Matt Ernst, who spent most of their careers prior to this in the financial and startup worlds, respectively.
And when it opens in September it will be one of the only three restaurants in Florida to be certified by the United States Healthful Food Council's Responsible Epicurean and Agricultural Leadership (REAL) program, and the only restaurant in South Florida to attain that certification.
DIRT, plans to open at 232 5th Street in Miami Beach. The restaurant will be open seven days a week with tentative weekday hours of 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. and weekend hours of 8 a.m. to 8 p.m..
