Red Rooster Overtown

Based in Harlem, Red Rooster is one of New York's must visit eateries and expect this Miami outpost to have the same buzz.

A homage to the neighbourhood and inspired by Harlem's iconic diner culture - this buzzy bistro serves up global soul street food and has been fundamental in bringing about a renaissance of the local culinary scene. Founded by renowed Ethiopian-Swedish chef Marcus Samuelsson (formerly of the award-wining Aquavit and a winner of Top Chef Masters) you can expect home-cooked Southern-inspired - comfort food with elements of Caribbean, Latin American and African cuisines. 

The menu features Red Rooster classics found at its Harlem location like hot honey fried chicken and Obama’s short ribs, in addition to new dishes such as fresh ceviche, grilled local fish, and nods to Miami’s Haitian and Caribbean communities with items like griot (pork shoulder) and accra (malanga fritters).

Expect the Miami outpost to replicate the laid back cheerful charm complete with antique bric-a-brac, works from local artists and live music - everyone from John Legend to Alicia Keys has performed in the downstairs Ginny's Supper Club. Housed inside of the former “Clyde Killen’s Pool Hall” in Overtown, and includes a 209-seat main dining room, outdoor garden, large patio, balcony terrace, and multiple private dining rooms.
