Located in a 1930’s members club in one of the quieter parts of Miami, everyone from Churchill to Sinatra frequented The Surf Club back in the day. The new incarnation from Thomas Keller does the classics in such a beautiful way, I’d recommend the beef wellington.
The beautifully designed Surf Club recalls the pastel-hued heyday of 1930s Miami – all airy cabanas, glimmering swimming pools, palm trees and open-topped Cadillacs gliding by. Its ocean-front location is exploited to maximum effect in its light-filled suites – floor-to-ceiling windows and balconies ensure panoramic views. Downstairs, Le Sirenuse restaurant brings Amalfi coast glamour and stunning southern Italian flavours Stateside. The Champagne Bar, in what was once the hotel’s ballroom, is an impossibly stylish setting. Select your tipple – or ask a white-jacketed barman to mix you up a speciality – sit back and recall days gone by.
