Here is more information about the restaurant :


According to : 

“You can expect dishes including Pear and Cheese Tortoloni with Truffle Cream and Poutine Short Rib Tater Tots; Lamb Loin Wellington with Mushroom Duxelle; Foie Gras with America Cherry, Baby Pear and Mache and Roast Beet Salmon Gravelox served with Pumpernickel and Whole Grain Mustard; and desserts including Devil Cake with Pistachio Mousse, Chocolate Marquez and Berry Compote and Banana Rum Cake with Pistachio Biscotti with Marshmallow Puff.  Breakfast will be available on the outdoor terrace until noon.” written by Lesley Abravanel.


According to Miami eater :

“The subterranean restaurant/bar/lounge designed by Orson Design Group features a 75-seat dining space with linen banquette seating, a lounge (which accommodates more than 80), a polished leather bar top, whitewashed wood, communal tables, bookshelves and bucket seats.

Guests are encouraged to linger downstairs after dinner since The Downstairs will have DJs (picked by Winter Music Conference co-founder Billy Kelly) spinning late into the night, but there is something for those who want an open-air experience, the upstairs Astor Terrace with a tea-lit garden, cushions and a bar.” written by Ana Heretoiu.


According to HungryPost :

Curated Craft Beer selections include a bevy of local and nationally-sourced brews such as Rhode Island Narragansett Lager, Funky Buddha’s “Floridian” Brew and Jai Alai IPA by Cigar City Brewing. Those looking to enjoy a wide array of libations are welcome to order at The Downstairs bar or the Astor Terrace Lounge. 

Those looking to enjoy an open-air experience can remain upstairs at Astor Terrace to take in the charming garden decorated with tea lights, tiffany-blue cushions, and a bar complete with an Orson Design-ed mural. At Astor Terrace, guests can enjoy breakfast until noon, happy hour daily from 5 to 9 p.m. or dinner alfresco before venturing to The Downstairs at Hotel Astor, Miami Beach to join the party for dinner or sultry sounds.


According to UrbanDaddy : 

The Downstairs at Hotel Astor, a hip new repository for poutine tater tots, devil cake and late nights of DJ-spun vinyl, opening Friday in (wait for it…) the Hotel Astor.

Seems the Hotel Astor’s been undergoing a bit of a renaissance lately. Relax—all of her art-deco-ness is still intact. But downstairs, things are getting a bit… funky. Like, leather-topped bars, bookshelves lined with classics and tater tots funky. Those are poutine short rib tater tots, to be exact. But there’s also foie gras and devil’s food cake looking to make your acquaintance.

Miami City Social will update more information about the Downstairs as soon as the restaurant fully up and running.
