Modern Garden opens in Miami River

The new addition to Seaspice, Modern Garden blossoms in a once unlikely place. This new concept offers an intimate dining experience on the Miami River , housed in a sleek, sultry, renovated post-industrial warehouse. Modern Garden is a dwelling for  social interaction and a shared love of the culinary journey—a place to muster, revel, and savor a unique combination of art and cuisine.

Adorned with an extraordinary permanent art installation that envelopes much of the space, Modern Garden is captivating with its organic design. The installation by architect Santiago Jose Palaez is scheduled to be unveiled during Art Basel 2014.

With its unique design, natural and neoteric touches, outdoor porch seating, and 500 feet of docking space, this is a place for social gatherings and culinary enjoyment for all to share—not to mention an intriguing menu showcasing the freshest products prepared in a modern, visually-stimulating style. Specifically, Modern Garden will serve exquisite crudos lightly dressed with infused oils, sea salt, citrus, and fresh herbs.

Guests who like it hot can order from Modern Garden’s signature hot stone selection, and sear premium meats and seafood on 850-degree volcanic stone slabs right at their table. The sizzle of meat on the hot stone, the fun of interacting with the cuisine, and the delectable result is all part of Modern Garden’s appeal.
