Cecconis

Whether it be London, NYC, Miami or a slew of other locations, usually you need a membership to set foot in Soho House. Lucky for all, you can still grab some amazing food at Cecconi’s in the Soho Beach House Miami without one.

The restaurant is open air (as most Miami restaurants are) and is beautifully lit. I love dim lights and candles, both of which this place has:

With some amazing chefs, I expected Cecconi’s to offer up some delicious Italian fare, of which it did:

Kale Salad w/ Ricotta Salada, Mangos & Radishes (glutenfree): Being a recent addition, this salad is not currently shown on the online menu, so I was pleasantly surprised when I saw it. I love kale and usually dislike making it at home since the stalks you buy are so huge! Throw in some mangos and this was a perfect app.

 
Ahi Tuna Tartare, Chili & Mint (glutenfree): They actually make this tartare table side, similar to how you get some guac made table side at Mexican spots. Honestly, I wasn’t too impressed. I was happy there was no soy sauce and that I could eat it, but disappointed that it was missing some saltiness typically associated with tuna tartare. Oh and missing avocado, not cool.
 
 
 
Scallops, Rosemary & Prosciutto (glutenfree): The scallops were wrapped in the prosciutto and sat on top of a bed of shaved potato (looks like rice). They were skewered on a stick of rosemary and were delicious.
 
 
 
Some type of Ravioli: This was not my order so I didn’t pay too much attention to what it was. It’s not listed on the online menu either but if I recall, it was filled with a few different meats (sausage, veal). Looked awesome…
 
 

Chicken Paillard, Grilled Vegetables & Salmoriglio (glutenfree): Believe it or not, this was half of the order. This dish was huge and I am very happy we decided to share it. I asked for a side of the dressing that was on the kale salad and used it to dip. Delicious, healthy meal.

This was a perfect, low key way to start our long weekend of bachelorette drinking, eating crap and partying.
