Bloom Begins Lunch Service Today

Bloom, the Wynwood restaurant that elevates Asian and Latin American street-food concepts, is opening for lunch service, beginning today.

Bloom's co-owner Sebastian Stahl tells Short Order that he has noticed an increase in foot traffic in Wynwood over the past few months. "I saw there were more people walking around during the daytime -- gallery workers, residents, and moms with strollers. I felt like it was time we offered an affordable lunch to our neighbors."

The lunch menu at Bloom, spearheaded by executive chef Ricky Sauri, features offerings such as jícama papaya salad ($13), date and goat-cheese salad with parsnips ($13), short-rib arepas ($13), panang curry ($13 to $16), and lunch fried rice ($12 to $18). As always, many menu items include vegetarian options.

The menu will change seasonally, and there are daily specials. In addition to lunch, the restaurant is trying out weekly chef's offerings. "You have to give a chef as talented as Ricky room to be creative," Stahl says.

Bloom is open for lunch Tuesday through Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturdays from noon to 4 p.m., and Sundays from noon to 6 p.m.
