The California-cool restaurant, which opened in April 2018, is reminiscent of the Pacific Coast town for which it's named — call it upscale beach-shack style. The menu offers cauliflower-crust pizza, chicken-ricotta burgers, and cucumber-infused vodka cocktails — not exactly what one would expect inside a swank Nobu-owned hotel at one of Miami Beach's most historic properties. Created by private-chef-turned-restaurateur Helene Henderson, Malibu Farm is utterly gorgeous. Customers dine on a wooden deck facing the ocean and offering glimpses of neon-hued lifeguard stands and sun-drenched tourists. There isn't a bad seat in the place. On a blisteringly hot and humid day, the mostly alfresco, whitewashed space, outfitted with wooden tables and cozy banquettes, can be too steamy to enjoy outside, but an air-conditioned indoor dining room with large floor-to-ceiling windows faces the water. Henderson's menu celebrates locally sourced items and ingredient-rich plates. Right now, she receives bread from Wynwood's Zak the Baker, meat from Larry Kline in Deerfield Beach, and fruits and vegetables from Produce Kingdom in downtown Miami.
