COMO Hotels and Resorts is opening the Metropolitan by COMO in Miami Beach in December 2013. The 74-room hotel is the first U.S. property for the Singapore-based company. The Art Deco building, designed by Albert Anis, was constructed in 1939 as the Traymore Hotel.
The Metropolitan by COMO will feature two restaurants, a bar, and a rooftop juice bar.
The Traymore restaurant will showcase fresh Florida seafood harvested from local waters. Though the menu has not been finalized, seafood selections will include a seasonal oyster selection, crudo, conch, poached seafood salads, baked scallops, and grilled razor clams.
Guests can also dine on gourmet fish sandwiches, Wagyu beef burgers, a roast chicken salad, and vegetarian options. Both a la carte breakfast and a continental buffet are offered, featuring items baked in-house daily by executive pastry chef Emmanuel Alves. The chef, who is also a master chocolatier, will also create a host of signature desserts based on seasonally grown and local tropical fruits.
In addition to the Traymore restaurant, an outdoor bar menu will be served throughout the day at the hotel's poolside cabanas.
The Met Bar will offer premium spirits and cocktails. Its sister location at the Metropolitan London hotel is famous for good drinks, great music, and celebrity sightings. The bar, once a members-only playground for Kate Moss and many football stars, is considered to be one of the best bars in central London.
