Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

The “new American” food genre can sometimes fall as flat as it sounds, but in the case of Ariete, fresh, local ingredients combined with Chef Michael Beltran’s modern spin on his Cuban roots translates to exciting, bold dishes. Naturally, we invited him to hold court at Time Out Market Miami. Learn how our market curation works here, but basically we tasted his food, reviewed his restaurants Ariete and Chug’s and, ultimately, recommended Beltran for a coveted spot. Here’s why:

Jason Odio (owner of popular late-night hangout Sidebar) and chef Michael Beltran (formerly of Cypress Room) have transformed the former La Bottega Space to a cool, brightly lit dining room punctuated by a commanding wood grill. The changes befit the new American menu the team’s putting out, made up of traditional dishes like burrata, local fish and porterhouse steaks. Find slightly more audacious starters that challenge diners with ingredients like chicken liver mousse, oysters with bone marrow butter.
