Argentine chef Fernando Trocca has teamed up with bartender Ines De Los Santo and restaurateur Martin Pittaluga to bring Orilla Bar & Grill to the U.S. this fall with a location on Miami Beach, marking the restaurant’s first foray into the states.
Orilla is known for its South American focused cuisine with its steaks cooked on the ever-so-hot (pun intended) Josper oven, alongside dishes like roasted vegetables and rice dishes including the restaurant’s popular arroz caldoso, a brothy rice dish. The menu is rounded out by dessert offerings like a lemon tart and flan.
As for the drinks those will be created by De Los Santos and will feature conceptions like the Ma Cherie with Lillet Blanc, gin, pineapple, grapefruit syrup and Thai basil, along with a “worldly” wine list is designed to complement the menu.
The 2,000-square-foot, indoor and outdoor eatery facing 5th Street will be designed by Agustina Aguilar and can seat up to 70 guests. Just like its decor in in Buenos Aires, the Miami location will incorporate pendant lighting, green hues and grey tones, and modern wooden furniture.
Orilla will be located at the Urbanica The Euclid Hotel at 426 Euclid Avenue. The restaurant will be open daily for breakfast, lunch, and dinner with plans to roll out its weekend brunch shortly after.
