Icebox Cafe has been around for 19 years and, since then, has experienced more than a few changes. After starting as a small restaurant just off Lincoln Road, it has grown to become a swanky eatery that Oprah Winfrey loves. The organic café owned by Robert Siegmann can be found in Miami and Dallas’ airport (and in Aventura soon), but this summer, its location in Sunset Harbour will offer something new.

In June, executive chef Greg True introduced new items to Icebox Cafe’s lunch and dinner menu. Using seasonal ingredients and fresh produce, he added a series of homestyle dishes that cater to a health-conscious clientele. Rather than limit himself to one cuisine, he has found inspiration in different cultures and infused the menu with international flavor. New Times was invited to taste the new menu.

Beginning with pickled mango flatbread ($13) and brown-butter shishito peppers ($11), the new menu features small appetizers for sharing in addition to heartier entrées. Each item is presented on a white plate to highlight the bright colors of the dish's fresh ingredients.

If you’re looking to start your meal with protein, you can add prosciutto to your mango flatbread for an extra $3 or order the specialty burrata seasoned with thin salt flakes.

For your main dish, the summer menu offers a Korean barbecued pork sandwich with homemade potato chips ($16), roasted pulled pork with Colombian-style rice ($21), and lump crab spaghetti with citrus-arugula pesto ($26). For lighter fare, opt for the fresh Waldorf salad with all-natural rotisserie chicken, green apples, and peppercorn yogurt dressing ($15).

In addition to enjoying one of Icebox’s seven new dishes, diners can also choose to order from the “Taste of Summer” menu, which features some of the restaurant’s signature items. For $39, you can enjoy your choice of a starter, entrée, and dessert. This prix-fixe menu includes Icebox’s famous avocado and seed salad ($16) and curried organic chicken breast ($20), which have remained in the restaurant’s repertoire upon customers’ request.

Finally, to sate your sweet tooth, choose from one of Icebox’s decadent desserts. Local favorites include chocolate delight ($9.95) and coconut buttercream ($8.50), but the new Italian cream ($8.50) is definitely worth trying. With its two layers of rich coconut-pecan cake and abundance of sweet Italian cream, it will leave you satisfied after just one bite.
