This spring, James Beard-nominated chef Clay Conley of Palm Beach’s renowned Buccan, makes his highly anticipated return to Miami for the opening of Chateau Miami, a new dining destination in the heart of Brickell. Known as the iconic Chateau Petit Douy and built in 1930 as the private home of prominent Floridians John and Sheelah Murrell, the building has been historically preserved and re-designed by an all-star team including designer Ken Fulk, Inc., The Smith Architecture Group and landscape architects Nievera Williams. Located at 1500 Brickell Avenue, sitting in stark contrast to the modern skyscrapers that surround it, the unique restaurant space will transport guests to another time and place with its beautifully manicured gardens, vintage chandeliers, and verdigris conservatory. To complement Chateau Miami’s stylish yet comfortable environment, Chef Conley will bring his signature open-fire cooking and progressive global cuisine he has become nationally recognized for. Guests can expect such dishes as “Carbonara” Fonduta Raviolini with quail egg, bacon, peas, and parmesan; Charred Organic Carrots with black hummus and black harissa; and "Medianoche” Ham & Gruyère Pain Perdu with mustard butter, cornichons and frisée (brunch). The innovative bar program will feature a mix of modern and classic cocktails created exclusively for Chateau Miami by Proprietors, LLC, the mixology masterminds behind New York City’s award-winning bar Death & Co. Classic cocktails from a bygone era will be updated with a modern twist, such as the Millicent (green chili vodka, pear brandy and vermouth); while new classics like The Sheelah (Japanese whiskey, pineapple gum, St. Germaine, Suze and fresh lime), named in tribute to the original owner of Chateau Petit Douy, will round out the bar menu.
