The Miami outpost replaces the iconic Soyka restaurant. This spot on Biscayne Boulevard is the second Chica location - the other is located on Restaurant Row at The Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas - headed up celebrity chef Lorena Garcia - the first Latina chef to run a restaurant on the Las Vegas Strip. Like the original - the design (by Rockwell Group) draws influence from Latin America - through colors and textiles, including handmade tiles, bright accents, and colonial-style ironwork.
The diverse menu celebrates ingredients and techniques from Cuba, Venezuela, Argentina, Colombia Peru and Mexico. You’ll find meats cooked on a wood-fire grill as well as traditional plancha and rotisserie for a signature Meyer lemon chicken.
