The fabulous Delano hotel is the ultra-hip, sophisticated adult fantasy land which has been attracting the international see-and-be-seen crowd for almost a decade. The Delano’s award-winning star restaurant, Blue Door, remains one of Miami’s best, where chef Claude Troisgrois’ creates sumptuous refined modern French cuisine with Brazilian and global influences. This Phillipe Starck designed sanctuary shimmers with floor-to-ceiling white curtains, chic white leather lounges and intricate hand-etched mirrors, with a romantic candle-lit outdoor patio that overlooks the Delano’s Alice in Wonderland-like fantasy garden & pool below. Signature dishes include the famed Mercu Cajou chilean sea bass with hearts of palm, soy glazed cashew nuts, garlic, lime and fresh herbs; the Agneau “Menta” rack of lamb brushed with passion fruit and mint toasted couscous, raisins, almonds and pearl onions; and the heavenly passionfruit crepe souffle which is simply to die for. Make sure you book a table on the outdoor patio where you can enjoy the warm ocean breeze by day, or at sparkling stars by night. Bookings essential.
