Don’ t you just love to see the evolution of a Miami restaurant? Some of us have been following The British Garden since they started as a food truck at the Wynwood Yard. Then made their way down the block to Brothers & Brawlers, and now have taken over the restaurant and placed their stunning red roses on all the tables at The Chelsea Hotel on Miami Beach.What Chef Christopher Davey has done here is fill a void in the Miami culinary scene with some British Flair.
How a food-appreciating adult like myself went my entire life without trying pountine until now is beyond me. At first glance you may see a plate of fries, but look closer and prepare to drool over this bed of ‘chips’ doused in pulled pork and a maple BBQ gravy.
And you can’t go wrong with wings, especially when they’re tamarind-spiced. To wrap up your small plates, be sure to also add the Welsh Rarebit and a cheese platter with house made jams to that spread.
Now, get ready to inhale one of the best burgers in the Magic City. The Big Ben angus patty burger comes strolling out of the kitchen on our beloved local Zac the Baker brioche bread and topped with signature BB sauce.
If a mind-blowing burger isn’t your thing, explore the Scotch Egg—a soft boiled egg hiding in center of proper sausage and crisp breadcrumbs. Or the 28 day dry aged 16 oz rib eye steak with a truffle pepperchini sauce is sure to impress.
Pace yourself people and save room for dessert! Battered stickers bars, talk about sweet, savory, melty goodness. If you’re a fan of all things chocolate, the black forest trifle most chocolate cake will make your sweet tooth muy, muy, feliz.
Say hi to Chef Christopher Davey when you go by, tell him Sincerely Miami sent ya. And keep an eye out for their brick and mortar soon to settle in the Wynwood neighborhood.
