SO, WHAT DOES THE DUTCH MEAN?
It’s just an American restaurant that serves nice food, wine and spirits. The Dutch sounded like a place we’d like to hangout, no matter what the occasion was, so that’s just what we called it.

NICE HERE! WHO DID ALL THIS ANYWAY?
New York restaurateurs Andrew Carmellini, Josh Pickard and Luke Ostrom partnered up with long-time locals Karim Masri and Nicola Siervo to bring The Dutch, their SoHo hot spot, down to Miami Beach.

SO, WHAT’S GOOD HERE ANYWAY?
We cook things that make us happy, like a seasonal green market salad; a deluxe steak with a tower of shellfish; tasty sandwiches; flavorful curry or chili; homey roasted chicken and fresh pie or something altogether surprising and new. You should really check out the menus.

DO YOU BUY LOCAL?
Sure.

ORGANIC?
Sometimes.

MAKE YOUR OWN HOT SAUCE?
Absolutely.

SOUNDS INTERESTING. WHAT DO YOU CALL THAT? IS IT DUTCH FOOD?
It’s American food the way we see it today. Roots-inspired dishes are shaped for big-city palates with the best ingredients, better technique and some neighborhood charm.

WHO IS THE CHEF?
Andrew Carmellini. He’s a two-time James Beard Award winner from New York City with a string of roaring hit restaurants including Locanda Verde inside Robert DeNiro’s Greenwich Hotel and Lafayette. You might even remember his Grandpa Carmellini if you were hanging out at Miami Beach’s Surf Club in the 40’s and 50’s. Andrew is also the author of two cookbooks, Urban Italian and American Flavor.

WHO DESIGNED THE RESTAURANT?
Meyer Davis Studio.

WHAT’S THE DEAL WITH GETTING A TABLE HERE?
Just call (305) 938-3111 or book online up to 30 days in advance. We also hold tables for walk-in guests. Come on by.

I JUST MIGHT DO THAT. DO THEY TAKE AMEX?
Totally. We accept Visa, MasterCard, America Express, cash and sell gift certificates too.

DOES THE DUTCH HAVE A DRESS CODE?
This ain’t no country club, but it’s no ball game either. This is Miami Beach. Keep it fresh.

WHAT IF I NEED A LITTLE PRIVACY?
We hear ya. The Dutch offers a variety of private dining options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Accomodations range from an intimate dinner party for 12 to a larger affair of up to 70 guests. You can learn more here.

WHAT ABOUT DRINKS?
Glad you asked. The list is long and the night is young. Specialties of the bar include cocktails mixed with respectable American spirits, a wine list covering all territories and price ranges including a reserve list, and a nice stock of craft beers too. Check out the beverage menus.

WHAT IS THE CORKAGE FEE?
That’s $45, please.
