It’s been 15 years since local restaurateur Mark Soyka gave Miami a new restaurant to obsess over, but he’s finally delivered. His newest, Café Roval, which opened just down the street from his eponymous eatery, has all the hallmarks of a Soyka outfit—a heritage building, contemporary American menu, jazzy playlist and whimsical outdoor space that transports diners to faraway places. He’s even brought over umbrellas from the now defunct Van Dyke Café on Lincoln Road. The kitchen inside the beautiful coral-rock-and-wood structure, which used to operate as a pump house, doles out farm-to-table fare (think crisp salads, veggie soups, succulent lamb and steak dishes) and vegetarian specialties, such as the vegan dish of the day made with locally grown produce.
