Lunch at Seasalt & Pepper Miami

Stylish. Trendy. Industrial chic. Waterfront. Downtown Miami. Put all this together with a menu and you’ve got the makings of yet another fashionable restaurant scene in Miami, where just about everyone who is looking to be seen is.

Noon on Friday afternoon you could count the people on one hand in this mod newcomer, and yet by 3:30 pm you couldn’t get a seat. Apparently they lunch late in Miami. And lunch they do, it certainly wasn’t the leisure, I have nothing to do but shop, eat, boat and golf crowd; every table was was suited up. Movers and shakers, dealmakers, and rainmakers or so it appeared. Oh and ladies, 97% of the tables were occupied by well-groomed, professional, and exceptionally well-dressed men, just in case you’re looking for you’re next place to lunch with a view.

When in Miami….and just like all the other lunchers at Seasalt & Pepper we did just that, lunch. According Seasalt & Pepper’s website they describe their culinary style as “ serious culinary swagger personified by a new sleek restaurant that focuses on restyled gastro classics…..” 

Well, yes the restaurant definitely has amusing and entertaining swagger from the acquired decor to the boats docked at its 250′ spread of dockage (there is a fee to dock your boat).

From the selection of plates we had I wouldn’t say “serious culinary swagger” but I would say flavorful with plenty of options no matter your preferential food style. The menu is friendly, accommodating, and to the point, it’s not all over the place or overwhelming with selections that don’t jive. Seasalt & Pepper puts emphasis on seafood, with items such as Lobster Thermidor ($50), Chilean Sea Bass ($42), Prince Edward Mussels ($16), and a Classic Seasalt Seafood ($35 per person); for landlubbers there’s a Black Truffle Veal Chop ($46) and an Organic Filet Mignon ($45); a fair selection of pasta, risotto and salad also have their place on the menu with most being made with their signature culinary moniker, seafood.

Not sure why my food photos were off this day, because we had great lighting but for the sake of argument and lack of amazing food photos everything we had we had we enjoyed. We ordered many plates to share, trying a little bit of everything.  This city, beachhouse-esque decored restaurant is happening, people are flocking to the Miami River by car, boat, and foot to be seen spicing up their life with a little Seasalt & Pepper.
