Blue Door at Delano - Closed

1685 Collins Ave. Miami Beach, FL 33139 | South Beach | 305-674-6400

Location Description:

The Blue Door presents a diner-friendly face to the public. Tropical, Asian, and Latin influences spark up classic French cookery: ravioli stuffed with taro root mousseline with white truffle oil; cold chayote soup with pan-seared scallops, soy, and garlic; sea bass with brown butter, cashews, and roasted heart of palm; and ragout of Maine lobster in a coconut milk broth. Pricey desserts are visual stunners but, like the setting, are eye candy and not much else.
