Two blocks east of Biscayne Boulevard off 31st Street is Miami’s latest dining delight. “Amara at Paraiso is about the dynamic energy, local ingredients and natural beauty that defines why we live in Miami and why so many love to visit,” says James Beard award-winning Chef & Owner Michael Schwartz. “We are in the unique position to bring it all together, a sense of place that only exists here.” The tempting menu features clean, balanced food prepared wholesomely — building flavor with great ingredients and simple cooking techniques centered around the flame and brightened by freshly picked herbs and boldly-flavored sauces. The selections focus on nuts, grains, vegetables, sprouts and roasted and spit-fired meats and fish. The 4,500-sq.-ft. indoor/outdoor space designed by Mayer Davis Studio is warm and welcoming as it celebrates the natural beauty of its waterfront surroundings. From the food to the ambience, the experience is a love letter to Miami; AmaraAtParaiso.com.
