SMOKEâ€™T SOUTHERN KITCHEN & TAP SETS MIAMI ABLAZE
Sophisticated Spin on Classic BBQ & Soul Food Faves
Marks Uncharted Territory on Coral Gablesâ€™ Dining Scene
The culinary team behind South Miamiâ€™s highly-successful TOWN Kitchen & Bar (TOWN), â€œA Neighborhood Joint,â€ announced today the debut of their latest dining destination:
Smoke’t Southern Kitchen & Tap
1450 South Dixie Highway, Coral Gables
â€œA Neighborhood BBQ Joint.â€ With Smokeâ€™t, co-owners Brandon Lurie, John Janette and Michael Altman, executive chef at both TOWN and Smokeâ€™t, infuse cosmopolitan Miami with Deep South flavor, re-interpreted.
Through hundreds of tastings, Altman and his team developed Smokeâ€™tâ€™s inventive, Southern-inspired menu items, such as Pepper Jack Cheese-filled Hushpuppies, and BBQ Pork Red Neck Rolls with Blazin Sauce (a creative transformation of sushi from Japanese cuisine to down home BBQ flavored meats and fixinsâ€™ wrapped in sticky rice) filled with Cole Slaw, served with a Homemade Spicy BBQ Dipping Sauce.
“The menu was really important to us,” said Altman. “We wanted sophisticated southern food which, until now, didn’t exist in Miami.â€
As pit barbecue is one of the most important styles of food in Southern cuisine, Smokeâ€™t showcases various flavors from U.S. barbecue capitals, all prepared on its in-house smoker, including Shredded Brisket with a Texas style BBQ sauce, Kansas City baby back ribs, Memphis style dry rub spare ribs and Carolina pulled pork. Rated â€œBest BBQ Sauceâ€ by Jack Daniels Grill Your Eats South Beach, Altmanâ€™s knock-your-socks-off original creation is featured in most of Smokeâ€™tâ€™s offerings.
Traditional specialties include deep fried chicken on waffles, brussel sprouts, country fried steak, cornbread, mashed potatoes, fried catfish and berry cobblers. Smokeâ€™t also serves southern-influenced salads and sandwiches. Smokeâ€™t has even created a kids menu since even kids canâ€™t resist many of Smokeâ€™tâ€™s offerings. The adults wonâ€™t be able to resist either with Smokeâ€™tâ€™s affordable menu pricing.
At 5,000 sq. ft., Smokeâ€™t has capacity for more than 200 guests. Lounge-style furniture, cozy banquettes and roomy tables ensure a right-at-home feeling, where patrons are the center of attention. Eclectic artwork, antique dÃ©cor elements and clever, eye-catching design features, like in-wall wood storage (for the smokers), round out Smokeâ€™tâ€™s casual yet chic ambiance with a touch of whimsy. The restaurant also features a club-style sound system for upcoming LIVE, classic rock music performances on their stage that highlights a Yamaha piano.
Ten flat screen televisions, a shuffleboard table and outdoor seating make Smokeâ€™t a perfect spot for a light bite or drink. Smokeâ€™tâ€™s bar features 12 beers on tap, in addition to the 87 other beer selections and food items on its extensive bar menu.
In the months ahead, Smokeâ€™t will launch an extensive wine program.
