As one of the most anticipated new restaurants opening this fall in the Magic City, The District Miami fuses the best Pan-American flavors for A Cultural Taste of the Americas.
The District Miami's concept was envisioned and brought to life by Managing Partner Alexander Ringleb, whose experience and trajectory includes renowned restaurants such as Casa Tua and DeVito's in Miami, Balthazar & Pastis in New York and Wolfgang's Steakhouse in Beverly Hills, California. Step-by-step Alexander carefully and craftily pieced each element together to bring The District Miami to life; from selecting the team to join the family, to the décor and ceiling- hand painted by renowned local artist Juan Rozas- and from selecting the custom-made Westchester Style couches, to curating the selection of beers and wines.
"The District Miami will be more than just a new restaurant in the ever-changing Miami culinary scene," said Alexander, "I wanted to create the perfect combination of a warm and inviting atmosphere with enticing cuisine. With its Pan-American fusion, The District Miami will embody what Miami is today, a true blend of cultures."Partner and Executive Chef Horacio Rivadero, Food and Wine Magazine's 2012 Best New Chef for the Gulf Region, created The District Miami's menu. He combined the best Pan-American flavors with fresh, local ingredients, to embody the true essence of a blend of cultures. "I am very excited to be a part of The District Miami," says the Chef Horacio. "My dishes will reveal a cultural taste of North, South, Central America and the Caribbean, all prepared with local produce from each area, bringing to light the best of each region. I want to give back to the community and showcase the best of what Pan-America has to offer."
