Chica by Lorena Garcia

Lorena Garcia’s electric eatery dishing up elevated, yet approachable Latin American cuisine.

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.
