Tudor House to Close End of Summer

Tudor House: there's still time to dine.
Tudor House, the American bistro part-owned by celebrity chef Geoffrey Zakarian located in the lobby of the Dream South Beach Hotel, is closing come the end of the summer.

The chef/partner has decided to divest his interest in Tudor House back to Dream South Beach's owner Sant Chatwal in order to focus on other projects in St. Petersburg....and Miami! Zakarian is also working on a major food & beverage partnership, which will be announced in the coming weeks.

Zakarian told Short Order, "I am extremely proud of what the staff and I have accomplished at Tudor House with Sant Chatwal. Unfortunately, my contract with the hotel limited me from pursuing other opportunities in South Florida which I am excited to do."

Tudor House opened last year to critical acclaim and was recently named Miami New Times' "best hotel restaurant" for 2012. Though Zakarian is the name that drew diners in for a celebrity chef experience, executive chef Jamie DeRosa was likely the man behind the burners and beautiful food. In his September, 2011 review of Tudor House, Lee Klein said, "If DeRosa can keep the cuisine at Tudor House at its current level, his name will likely increase in stature too."

If you haven't dined at Tudor House's weekend Rose brunch or tried their grilled branzino ($29), you still have time this summer.

As for that new Zakarian venture in Miami?  Stay tuned to Short Order for details.

the place sucked, was always quiet, and the service was generally horrible. nice excuses though.


Maybe, but being a secret, in a hotel renovation on Collins with celeb chef owner doesn't sound like a great business plan


This place is Miami's best kept dining secret and will continue to be if DeRosa remains in the kitchen.
