Lique Miami Waterfront Dining & Lounge

By: Nancy Esteves

If you are ready for a special night out, this trendy Riviera-style dining and lounging

experience offers spectacular bay views, delicious food pairings, flawless presentation and

impeccable service.

Executive Chef Renato Medeiros has put forth a creative and varied menu of Mediterranean-

influenced sharing plates, as well as sushi and raw bar offerings. His creations are a unique

marriage of Mediterranean and Asian inspired flavors that end up in the perfect combination

on your plate.

The Venue

Alex Podolny and Peter Cumplido have created a venue with an impressive interior dining

room and a seductive lounge that is relaxed yet elegant– a delightful fusion of the South of

France and 305. You can also dine alfresco on their beach club-style terrace overlooking the

picturesque Intracoastal of Sunny Isles Beach.

Lique’s 1,000-foot dock will allow guests to arrive by boat, if they fancy. The restaurant

actually has its own yacht available for private dinners and parties.

It’s also a great place for Sunday brunch where you can even enjoy something totally

different, like, short rib eggs Benedict with horseradish hollandaise sauce or your favorite


From the Menu

Raw Bar

The raw bar boasts Cold Water Main Lobster, excellent quality sushi, several types of elegant

caviar, stone crab claws, and seasonal East and West Coast oysters.

I love the TACUSHI–shredded crab, avocado and sriracha mayo!

A must try is also is their scallop Carpaccio with yuzu mojito vinaigrette and picked mint.

Shared Appetizers

Must try shared appetizers include: savory crispy ricotta gnocchi with sautéed mushrooms

and froth—amazing; the charred broiled pei mussels with red pepper garlic butter; the

roasted sea scallops with dashi butter crust—my favorite!

Also amazing is the crispy grilled Mediterranean octopus with flash fried potatoes.

They also have an escargot tortellini with morel mushrooms, bacon and parsley foam.

#1Must try side: Kimchee brussel sprouts, enough to share for two people.
