Opens Los Fuegos at Faena Hotel Miami Beach, born from a passion for the ancient art of South American live-fire cooking, Argentine grillmaster Francis Mallmann creates a contemporary asado experience with an open-fire kitchen, local ingredients and a gaucho’s touch to transform traditional rustic recipes into sophisticated, savory dishes. Here is more information about Los Fuegos :
According to Urban Daddy :
“Pop in with a group and take your places among the rich red-and-gold tapestries, the glowing pineapple lanterns and the airy poolside veranda. Your first play: the Smoke and Sparks with reposado tequila, jalapeño and flaming salt. Which’ll set the tone for all the smoky goodness heading your way—prime-fillet-stuffed empanadas from the wood oven, Wagyu from the open fire grill and whole Maine lobster a la plancha. That open fire grill and kitchen is right by the patio entrance, and if you ask nicely, they’ll take you inside to oversee all of the prepping and grilling action. Though quietly observing would probably make more sense.”
According to NBCNews :
“You imagine you’ll know the moment chef Francis Mallmann arrives in your city – maybe the shadow of flickering flames will light up the night or the pleasantly acrid scent of burning quebracho hardwood will fill the air. The acclaimed Latin American chef known for his dramatic open-fire cooking has just opened his first U.S. restaurant, Los Fuegos, at the Faena Hotel in Miami Beach, speciaizing in contemporary Argentinian cuisine. Highly regarded in South America for his top tier, destination restaurants in Argentina and Uruguay and extensive work in television, Mallmann is best known in the United States for the James Beard award-winning book Seven Fires: Grilling the Argentine Way and its follow-up Mallmann on Fire.”
