Jattö223 NW 23rd St., Miami
jattomiami.comChef Henry Hané of Miami's B Bistro + Bakery has opened his newest concept, Jattö, in the former Alter space. A play on the Peruvian word jato — meaning "home" — the menu draws global inspiration marrying the flavors of Peru, Colombia, and Spain. For a Miami touch, Hané gives a nod to local artisans, collaborating with a number of South Florida farms, purveyors, and spirit makers. Menu highlights include Zak the Baker bread topped with colada butter; a stone crab causa with acevichado sauce, avocado, egg yolk fudge, and choclo chalacita; and "Mr. Benedict", a soft-boiled egg topped with hollandaise, crisp bacon, panela, and tamarind gel. Open Tuesday to Thursday from 6 to 11 p.m., and Friday through Saturday from 6 p.m. to midnight.
