Tudor House, Goffrey Zakarian's return to South Beach, has opened in the Dream Hotel to much anticipation.
The space is open and airy, with a masculine take on Miami Art Deco decor. The gray and brown color palate is accented with chrome, teak, and pictures of Miami circa 1930s. The 125-seat outdoor patio takes advantage of the original stonework, and the 55-seat indoor dining room is a cool welcome break from the heat of the beach.
A "modern gastro cafe", Tudor House serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Short Order attended a weekend breakfast, hosted by Margaret Zakarian. Where was Geoffrey? Behind the line, alongside Executive Chef, Jamie DeRosa, making fritatas.
Pastry chef Natalia Arevalo's apple fritter and butter croissant were accompanied by papaya jam and mini fruit smoothies ($16).
The egg white fritata, made with goat cheese, asparagus and morel mushrooms ($15). The fritata tasted so rich, we asked if they had possibly snuck in some egg yolks (the answer was "no").
Lemon Ricotta hotcakes ($14) were light, moist and fluffy. The lemon and ricotta were reminiscent of a rich Italian cheesecake. Hint: these hotcakes don't need the 100% Vermont maple syrup provided.
