|Margaret and Geoffrey Zakarian open Tudor House at the Dream South Beach.|
, Goffrey Zakarian's return to South Beach, has opened in the Dream Hotel to much anticipation.
The space is open and airy, with a masculine take on Miami Art Deco decor. The gray and brown color palate is accented with chrome, teak, and pictures of Miami circa 1930s. The 125-seat outdoor patio takes advantage of the original stonework, and the 55-seat indoor dining room is a cool welcome break from the heat of the beach.
A "modern gastro cafe", Tudor House serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Short Order attended a weekend breakfast, hosted by Margaret Zakarian. Where was Geoffrey? Behind the line, alongside Executive Chef, Jamie DeRosa, making fritatas.
|Pastry chef Natalia Arevalo's apple fritter and butter croissant were accompanied by papaya jam and mini fruit smoothies ($16).|
|The egg white fritata, made with goat cheese, asparagus and morel mushrooms ($15). The fritata tasted so rich, we asked if they had possibly snuck in some egg yolks (the answer was "no").|
|Lemon Ricotta hotcakes ($14) were light, moist and fluffy. The lemon and ricotta were reminiscent of a rich Italian cheesecake. Hint: these hotcakes don't need the 100% Vermont maple syrup provided.|
