Touted as the first eatery of its kind, the Michael Mina 74 is a “bistro-lounge,” a fusion of a restaurant, bar, and ultra-lounge focused not only on gourmet food, but creating a vibrant social atmosphere. “We’ve achieved the perfect balance of delicious food and a high-energy, sophisticated ambiance with Michael Mina 74 at Fontainebleau,” said Michael Mina. “Our goal was to create a new concept with great food that effortlessly transitions from restaurant to a lounge atmosphere while maintaining a sense of connectivity.”
The 7,400-square-foot, 215-seat eatery was designed by New York firm AvroKO, which sought to combine tropical elements with urban style to create an eatery that is perfectly at home in Miami Beach. The menu is bistro-style, with international dishes combined with local and regional specialties, such as Fontainebleau’s signature local shellfish and dry-aged steaks. The bar offers handcrafted, barrel-aged and classic cocktails, as well as punches on tap.
The wine list allows guests to choose from a selection of Old and New World wines, as well as champagnes and sparkling wines, with an emphasis on grower-producers, hard-to-find grand marques, rare vintages, and rare vineyards from top producers in Champagne, France. Michael Mina 74 uses a WineEmotion dispenser to serve many of its sparking, red, and white wines, which guarantees that all glasses have a perfect pour and temperature, and are of the highest quality.
“Michael Mina 74 is the fourth pillar in our award-winning collection of signature restaurants and raises the bar on the dynamic range of dining and nightlife available to guests at Fontainebleau,” said Phil Goldfarb, President and COO of Fontainebleau Miami Beach.
