Avra Miami isn’t just a place to dine-- it’s a destination. Avra is located at The Estates at Acqualina and is connected to our resort by an exclusive sky bridge. The airy space has a distinctly sophisticated yet warm character and features a glamorous aesthetic. Diners will be able to hear the sounds of the waves crashing while they dine alfresco and savor oceanfront views, and a meal at the restaurant will offer a transportive experience.
Avra’s cuisine is inspired by the seaside tavernas dotted all over Greece’s coast and more than 200 islands. The menu offers iterations of fresh fish as well as rarer Mediterranean gems like fagri and lithrini.
Picking your seafood from the ice display that features in-season catch is a signature part of the Avra experience as is deciding how to enjoy it: have it grilled whole over charcoal, deboned and finished with Avra’s signature ladolemono sauce or baked in salt. Or try it raw as a carpaccio or in a ceviche.
Salads and cheeses will be a staple, too, and can be enjoyed family-style. Fruity, full-bodied olive oil, bottled exclusively for the restaurant, is the finish to every dish and comes from olives in Greece that are handpicked from ancient groves and pressed within three hours of harvest.
Avra Miami serves brunch with sweet and savory bites every Sunday from 11:30 am to 3:30 pm. Under the helm of executive chef Jose Diaz, Avra’s brunch offers rich and flavorful Mediterranean cuisine with dishes such as the Smoked Salmon Tower with sliced tomato, cucumber, capers, bagels and cream cheese; Fluffy Scrambled Eggs & Kaluga Caviar; Shakshuka with Eggs; Eggs Benedict served over potato latkes; and more. Guests will enjoy delectable food offerings along with stunning waterfront views when dining al fresco.
Designed by STA Architectural Group, Avra Miami spans 12,000 square feet and has a 330-seat main dining room. The space is chic yet inviting with its floor-to-ceiling windows, high ceilings, white color tones and brass finishes. The entryway features a bougainvillea intertwined pergola with the backdrop of three salt stone sculptures that evoke the beachfront setting and were designed by the renowned New York-based artist Fernando Mastrangelo.
The Wines and Spirits
The wine program at Avra is as impressive as the food with a list that includes more than 1,200 varieties and spans the globe. The highlight is Greek wine and top producers in the country who are increasingly getting international acclaim. But the list also pays homage to regions such as Burgundy, Bordeaux, Tuscany and Napa and features rare bottles like Harlan, Petrus, Romanee-Conti and Colgan. Less-discovered areas- Slovenia, Slovakia, Israel and more figure in too.
For those who want to imbibe by the glass or sip on several different selections, Avra has a robust by-the-glass menu with more than 30 choices.
When it comes to spirits, Avra's options span in the hundreds and include 25 varieties- expect everything from bourbons, ryes, vodkas, gins and rums to tequilas and whiskies- the latter of which includes hard-to-find-American whiskies and Shibui Whisky from Japan, aged either 10, 15, 20 or 25 years. Greek spirits are part of the mix with ouzos and mastichas.
