Occupying the space vacated by Tom Collicchio’s Beachcraft, Habitat is housed inside the uber swanky 1Hotel South Beach. Habitat’s subtlety exquisite aesthetic features a gracefully intimate neutral-colored space, with natural wooden planks, ocean driftwood, and forest greenery accents throughout. Habitat’s aesthetic refinement continues to the plate with clean, thoughtful, flavor-forward dishes that draw inspiration from the elements.
From the Sea; Hamachi Aguachiles, a bright and flavorful dish with watermelon juice, guajillo chili pepper oil, radishes, and cilantro. Stone Crab Fettuccini tossed in miso citrus butter, jalapeño, and bok choy leaf. Japanese Amberjack with lemongrass romesco, garlic chips, and hazelnuts.
From the Land; Black Truffle Bomba Rice with dry shiitake, and cultivated mushrooms. Baked Burrata with pumpkin romesco, almond brown butter, and country toast.
Forged in Fire; Iberico Pork Ribs sauced with bulgogi bbq, gochujang, and topped with kimchee apples. Wood Grilled Spanish Octopus with miso rouge, piquillo pepper, baba ganoush, and pine nuts.
From the Air; Key Lime Tequila Pie with a brown butter blondie crust, yuzu lime cremeux, and tequila “ice cubes”.
