Another New York City import has made its way to Miami, this time its Shelter (10 NE 27 Street) a wood-fired eatery specializing in Italian and Argentine cuisine.
On the menu guests can find starters like steamed mussels, crispy artichokes with pecorino cheese dip, a meat and cheese board, truffled mac and cheese, and ceviche mixto. Pizzas, all available gluten-free varieties, are a star of the menu with some highlights including Brussels sprouts with smoked mozzarella; fontina and pancetta; ham and peppers with mozzarella; quattro stagioni with mushroom, artichoke, olives, and prosciutto cotto; and the truffle pizza with fontina, mushroom cream, mozzarella, Parmesan and, of course, truffle. Another favorite are the empanadas filled with items like sweet corn, scallion, nutmeg, and bechamel; and mushroom, kale and goat cheese, among others. Main plates range from a roasted half-chicken with mashed potatoes to parillada for two with ribeye, chorizo, morcilla, skirt steak, chicken; and slow-braised double rubbed pork ribs.
Taking cues from the original Brooklyn outpost, which debuted in 2013, the space features woodsy, “hunting lodge chic” design. Think lots of wood elements, deer antler chandeliers, and designs that evoke a ski lodge feel — even showcasing snow shoes on the wall. Keeping with that theme at the bar, which offers a large variety of whiskies, scotches, and bourbons, alongside an extensive beer, wine, and cocktail list.
Shelter Wynwood is now open nightly for dinner service. Call 305-603-8970 for more information.
