Ever dreamed of having your meal served to you via bicycle? Well now that dream can become a reality at Leynia, the Delano Hotel’s latest restaurant addition — and its first under its new owners sbe — that officially opens its doors to the public today.
The Argentine Japanese concept is spearheaded by executive chef Jose Icardi, who was most recently at Katsuya. In traditional Argentine style the focal point on the menu is the meats cooked a la Lena on the wood-fired grill. What’s not so traditional are the hand-painted bikes imported from Argentina that are roaming the restaurant serving diners their food and drinks.
On the menu expect dishes like beef empanada benedicts and guava dulce de leche French toast for breakfast, while for lunch and dinner items like short rib ravioli, sweet breads, melted provolone cheese, and a variety of sushi options can be found. A cocktail menu providing “inventive” twists on the Miami drinks and a South American focused wine menu are also available.
Leynia is open 7 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. on Sundays to Thursdays and 7 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays at 1685 Collins Avenue. Call 305 674 5752 to make a reservation or for more information.
