You know him as the chef and owner of Brickell's B Bistro + Bakery—home to some of Miami's most decadent, over-the-top croissants—as well as from his previous posts at notable restaurants, such as Eating House and Bebito's Cafe. Now, chef Henry Hané is taking his talents to Wynwood, where he's set to debut Jattö this fall.
Opening in the former Alter location, the modern Peruvian restaurant promises a multi-sensory dining experience, which might be familiar to those who've ventured into molecular-gastronomy territory. Chef Henry, together with chef de cuisine Aleric Constantin, will put forth a collection of small plates where foams, gels, creams and flavorful emulsions are front and center. Some of the highlights from the forthcoming dinner menu include a stone crab causa, featuring claws from George, a local purveyor; huancaina chicken over quinoa; and a leek confit made with cashew cream romesco. For dessert, there’s a cafecito-inspired affogato colada with Frice sorbet, condensed milk foam and colada syrup. Good luck falling asleep after that.
While the haute-cuisine menu might seem reminiscent of Alter’s style, that’s about where the similarities end. The former industrial space itself is hardly recognizable. Made over in rich green hues, the vibrant dining room is decked with large mirrors and hanging lights to complement the colorful dishes you’ll see making the rounds.
Jattö is located at 223 NW 23rd Street and is slated to open for dinner service mid-October. For more up-to-date information, be sure to check out their Instagram.
