The restaurant doesn't yet have a name but the fare will be found throughout the hotel as the resto will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as select items poolside and for in-room dining. The menu will feature the hottest ingredients around, which are essentially anything that is locally sourced. KNR Hospitality Group's Karim Masri and Nicola Siervo, well-known "super hosts" in Miami Beach, will also work with Bernstein to cultivate the food and beverage concepts found elsewhere at the Thompson.
The property is undergoing a multi-million dollar renovation which initially led us to think we won't be staying at Thompson Miami Beach until sometime in mid-2015. But surprisingly, the hotel is planning a late 2014 opening. And perhaps, not-so-coincidentally, that's when the former founders of the Thompson brand plan on opening the Miami outpost of their newly formed Sixty Hotels brand--The Nautilus Hotel. We can't wait. Let the games begin.
