Juvia, the stunning restaurant atop the Herzog & de Meuron-designed structure at 1111 Lincoln Rd. in Miami Beach, was recognized by the James Beard Foundation last night and received the Outstanding Restaurant Design award for spaces 76 seats and over.
The restaurant, designed by Alejandro Barrios-Carrero, features lush foliage by renowned French botanist Patrick Blanc. The glowing 10,000-square-foot space includes amethyst accents, and a fusion between nature, urbanity, and concrete. The combination of architecture, landscape, and design impresses. Juvia is also one of the best places to grab a drink at sunset, the time of day when its Biscayne Bay views delight most.
Congratulations are also in order to Jeff McInnis, of Yardbird Southern Table & Bar, and Hedy Goldsmith, executive pastry chef at Michael's Genuine Food & Drink, for their nominations!
