Marcus Samuelsson’s Ice Cream Shop, The Creamery, Set to Debut at Red Rooster Overtown

Offering unique ice cream flavors and a preview of the restaurant’s forthcoming menu

One of Miami’s most anticipated new restaurants, Red Rooster Overtown (920 NW 2nd Avenue) by celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson, was slated to debut in late March, but had to delay its opening due to the coronavirus pandemic. But those hoping for a taste of the cuisine are in luck as its ice cream shop The Creamery debuts Friday, June 19, to the public.

The Creamery at Red Rooster Overtown will have eight different ice cream flavors on the menu like Marcus’ Cornbread made with honey butter caramel and blackberry jam; Ode to Havana with cream cheese ice cream, guava jam, and Maria cookies; and 7th Inning Stretch with caramel corn, and potato chips. A handful of chicken dishes from the “Bird Menu” and sides will also be available — a preview of what’s to come when the restaurant officially opens its doors — with offerings like chicken and waffles, mac and cheese, and grains and greens. The Creamery will also offer a Sundae Supper for four for those looking to dine on a full meal with a small group.

In late March the restaurant teamed up with José Andrés’ World Central Kitchen (WCK) and Food Rescue US - Miami to provide meals to anyone in need three days a week. The program is still ongoing.

The items will be available for takeout and delivery starting Friday, June 19, and guests can also eat their meals and snacks in the restaurant’s backyard, outfitted with ten picnic tables placed 6 feet apart.
