CLASSIC BRUNCHING
AT THE BILTMORE
Opened in 1926, the Biltmore Hotel
housed everyone from Al Capone to
Franklin D Roosevelt, and remains a
national institution. It also serves up
the country’s most celebrated and lavish
Champagne brunches in the stunning
Fontana restaurant. biltmorehotel.com
EPIC VIEWS AT JUVIA
Sitting atop a Herzog & de Meurondesigned parking garage (really) at 1111
Lincoln Road, Juvia is a penthouse
restaurant fusing Asian/Latin/French
cuisine with vast views over South
Beach. Throw in water features, a
vertical garden by internationallyacclaimed botanist Patrick Blanc
and a DJ, and you have pure Miami
showmanship. juviamiami.com
ASIAN AND ARTY AT KYU
Among the uber-fashionable restaurants
of Miami’s Wynwood art district, Asianstyle eatery Kyu, from former Zuma
chef Michael Lewis, is the stand-out,
with a menu inspired by Japanese and
Korean yakiniku grilling, peppered
with American Southern barbecue
influences. kyurestaurants.com
AUTHENTIC CUBAN
AT VERSAILLES
The city’s long-standing Cuban cuisine
institution opened in 1971 and, since
then, has become a staple for locals
and tourists alike. The dining room
is illuminated by golden chandeliers
and surrounded by mirrors mimicking
Versailles Palace’s Hall of Mirrors but
the food is as authentically Cuban as it
gets. versaillesrestaurant.com
JAPAN COMES TO BELGRAVIA
With the Rugby World Cup in full flow in
Japan, Belgravia’s Hari Hotel has teamed up
with craft distiller the House of Suntory to
transform its leafy Garden Terrace into a
quintessential Japanese garden, celebrating
the phenomenal autumn colours in Japan.
The pop-up showcases three cocktails based
on House of Suntory spirits and paired
with savoury canapes (£18): the Netsui Fizz,
Ginza Gimlet and Toki-yo Haiboru.
