Lure Fishbar Miami, the seafood restaurant inside the Loews Miami Beach Hotel, brings together great food, an intuitive chef and plenty of eye candy decor.
Tartan tufted banquettes, framed nautical flags, old school bearded barmen. Lure Fishbar has all the signs of mid-century modern chic with a hipster twist. The seafood restaurant offers fresh fish selections from around the world, a complete raw bar with a rotating oyster selection, and world-class sushi. Executive Chef John Iatrellis has a deft hand preparing deviled eggs topped with caviar, Asian barbecue wings, fried Blue Pint oysters with a creamy caper tartar sauce and lobster tempura rolls. “At the end of a big meal, this is what I like to serve,” Iatrellis says holding a simple looking guava and coconut sorbet with fresh fruit. After a few bites it’s clear that not only is the dessert spectacular but Iatrellis is a thoughtful, intuitive chef.
