And Another...

logo.jpgRybak's Café premieres tonight at at 177 SW 7th Street (at the bottom level of the Latitudes building, just off Brickell Avenue). The 204-seater is being billed as "a laid back, uniquely hip bistro, featuring creative, moderately priced international cuisine, a classy bar/lounge, live entertainment and a 24-hour coffee shop café." Copper walls, brown marble floor tiles, chocolate leather banquettes, and a floor-to-ceiling wine "cellar" lend the locale its' desired "cigar room feel".

Executive chef is Garrette Gray, whose eclectic menu includes starters ($6-$17) such as pan roasted scallops with smoked duck, shiitake mushrooms, poached pears and natural thyme jus; fish entrees ($24-$34) like grouper with braised callaloo, potato conch fritter, roasted red pepper and lemongrass broth; and meats ($24-$56) like grilled veal chop crusted with Sansyo Japanese pepper and pooled in sake apple reduction. Executive pastry chef Mika Kochi will produce pastries and breads on premise. Open for lunch and dinner until midnight on weekdays, 1:00 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays; the coffee shop, as stated, never closes.
