Miami’s Newest Dining Hotspot
A grand porte cochère at the former DiLido Hotel (today the Ritz-Carlton South Beach on Collins Avenue and Lincoln Road) will welcome guests to the new TATEL restaurant in the heart of Miami’s Art Deco district. A striking bar in a bell jar-shaped room with floor-to-ceiling windows originally conceived by Morris Lapidus, who’s name is synonymous with the “Miami Modern” style of the 1950s and 60s, will beckon guests upon arrival. For this intriguing space, Studio Gronda has designed a circular-shaped, chrome-finished island bar. An oversized sculptural chandelier composed of more than one hundred lights rises above the bar like a sparkling cloud. Proceeding past a Joselito “Ham Library” and through the intimate lounge featuring glass-front cabinets for fine wines and spirits, guests will enter the main dining room.
