Almost three years after Hurricane Irma pummeled six feet of storm surge on the legendary Matheson Hammock Park eatery Red Fish Grill, the restaurant has finally reopened as Redfish by Chef Adrianne (9610 Old Cutler Road) with a new look, new ownership, and a new leader: chef Adrianne Calvo.
The popular historic waterfront restaurant — which had cameos in movies like “There’s Something About Mary” — still boasts its iconic coral rock structure exterior, but now features a 106 seat outdoor patio with four waterfront cabanas plus a rooftop observation deck featuring 360 degree waterfront views. The interior of the space, which was destroyed during the hurricane, has been renovated from the ground up and now features a 10-seat, custom-built, oyster bar inside along with seating for 44 people.
The menu of Redfish will stick with a seafood theme. Alongside Calvo, the eatery’s executive chef, Eglis Siu, has created lunch, brunch, and dinner offerings for the space. Classic fish house items like jumbo lump crab cakes, oysters Rockefeller, tuna tartare, lobster rolls, and brown sugar crusted salmon fill out the menu. For those craving non-seafood dishes items like buttermilk fried chicken, a variety of steaks, plus a whopping ten desserts are available.
This isn’t the only eatery Calvo will be opening in the next month. Her popular West Kendall restaurant Chef Adrianne’s Vineyard Restaurant & Bar, will move into a new 8,000-square-foot indoor and outdoor space on July 9 in the The Palms at Town and Country in the space where Devon Seafood & Steak used to reside.
Redfish by Chef Adrianne is now open Tuesday to Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday to Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. For more information and to make a reservation visit here.
