When My Ceviche opened in SoFi, there was much to love about the tiny shop that featured fresh-from-the-sea ceviche and stone crab. Except, of course, if you wanted to sit down and dine at a leisurely pace. The little shop had very few seating options. You could eat at the youth hostel next door, take your burrito to the beach, or go home. That said, the food was so fresh and reasonably priced that no one really seemed to mind.
But why not have everything, right? So with the announcement of a second, "much larger" location in Brickell, we can now enjoy our ceviche and be seated too.
The new, larger My Ceviche, located at 1250 S. Miami Ave., will open in mid-to-late March and have 32 indoor/outdoor seats. The 900-square-foot, fast-casual restaurant will offer My Ceviche's menu of stone crabs, Caribbean-style tacos and burritos, salads, and ceviche. In addition, the restaurant will offer beer, with two rotating selections at a wallet-friendly $3.95 each. House-made micheladas (Mexican spicy beer cocktails), which pair perfectly with seafood, will also be offered.
The restaurant will be decorated in turquoise, lime green, and white and will feature oversize chalkboard menus, butcher-block communal tables, and a large graffiti logo.
As always, partners Sam Gorenstein and Roger Duarte will serve fish that's less than 24 hours off the boat, which means the menu will change seasonally as Duarte and Gorenstein contract with local fishermen and crabbers to procure the catch of the day, including cobia, yellow jack, and triggerfish.
My Ceviche will be open seven days a week from 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Delivery to downtown, Brickell, Coconut Grove, Coral Gables, Key Biscayne, and midtown will be available beginning in early April (an additional delivery charge of $3 to $5 will apply).
