Food Porn: Habitat Inside the 1 Hotel South Beach

Sous Chef Carlos Consuegra
At Habitat, the indoor-outdoor space exudes a strikingly warm glow through rustic, wooden decor and gold and copper accents. Anchored by a large bar, the dining room includes more than 200 seats. Outside, a tree-canopied patio draped in dangling lights features a small camper stocked with cafecitos and cocktails. It’s a massive space, but so far chef José Mendin has somehow kept the restaurant teeming with customers on weekend nights. The menu is divided into “Land,” “Sea,” and “Fire.” Overall, it’s a mixture of recognizable plates and more experimental items.
