Cafe Kush Opens Inside the Selina Miami Gold Dust Motel

This week, Matt Kuscher, founder of Kush Hospitality and the Kush family of restaurants, launched his latest concept, Cafe Kush, in partnership with the Selina Miami Gold Dust motel. The establishment is now open for lunch and dinner, with a menu of new dishes alongside familiar Kush comfort classics. Hors d'oeuvres include French onion soup, frogs' legs, and beef carpaccio ($11 to $15). Among the larger plates: a croque monsieur, ratatouille, coq au vin, and steak frites ($14 to $26). These are served alongside Kush classics from the Lokal salad and Frita burger to chicken & waffles and key lime pie ($9 to $15). The cocktail menu likewise embraces the European theme, with unique offerings that include a homemade vermouth aged for a month in-house. (A bottle is left at each table, meant to be consumed in the same fashion as the house wines you'd find in Europe, and is charged by consumption.)  7700 Biscayne Blvd., Miami; 305-985-4764; kushhospitality.com. Opens Tuesday, December 8, 2020.
