This new Sunset Harbour restaurant doesn’t really take to labels. Is it Peruvian? Is it American? Don’t bother searching for answers—the combination of cuisines, techniques and inspirations represented on the pared-down menu were designed to fall under the “all of the above” category. “You see a mix of people in this city and I want to be reflective of that,” says executive chef Michael Mayta, explaining his approach. So what are Miamians eating? Pillowy gnocchi, like the seasonal pumpkin with fresh sage that’s currently on the menu, creamy burrata over a delicate beet jelly and mushrooms cooked saltado-style with wispy potatoes. One of Lutum’s most popular dishes is chef Mayta’s burger of the week. The original creations with punny names (think “Aruguela the berdayes,” with goat cheese, arugula and poached beets) are inspired by the cartoon show Bob’s Burger.
