Grove Bay Hospitality Group is continuing its domination of the South Miami food scene by debuting its third eatery in the neighborhood, Public Square (6915 Red Road). Taking over the former Shula’s 347 space — the group’s first-ever restaurant — the new restaurant offers contemporary American dishes, a West Coast focused wine list, and a sleek new setting.
On the menu guests can find many updated classics like filet mignon bites wrapped in bacon; grilled octopus; poached lobster; salmon crab rolls; a variety of grilled steaks; mushroom risotto; branzino; and much more. The wine list highlights vintages from the West Coast, with plenty of wines by the glass and even boasts a wine vault program that lets its members have a personalized “wine vault” where the restaurant can hold their favorite bottles to drink when dining. A full bar with cocktails created by Nick Casanova are also on hand.
The space got a major revamp from its Shula’s days. The quartz bar anchors the room, with booth upholstered in green leather, brass chandeliers lighting the room, and tables alternating in earth tones with the space being able to seat 170 people, with additional private dining room available for up to 60 people.
The restaurant debuts tomorrow, October 23, and will be open Sunday to Thursday from 5 to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturdays from 5 to 11 p.m. with brunch service coming in the later months. To make a reservation call 305-665-9661.
