Part of STARR Restaurants
Upland, by celebrated chef Justin Smillie and renowned restaurateur Stephen Starr, is now open in Miami Beach! The second outpost of the popular NYC restaurant brings Smillie’s signature California inspired cuisine to the chic South of Fifth neighborhood in a charming setting designed by Roman and Williams.
Affectionately named for Smillie’s hometown in Southern California, Upland has received critical acclaim since its 2014 opening for Smillie’s culinary prowess and universal appeal. Fans of the restaurant include Pete Wells of the New York Times who urged readers to visit and described Smillie as a “pasta savant” and “vegetable sage.” Upland is Starr’s fifth active project in South Florida following the successes of Steak 954, Makoto, The Continental and Le Zoo.
