Miami Beach, FL
Now, his most anticipated and ambitious Miami restaurant, Upland, joins that list with it’s opening at 49 Collins. Chef Justin Smillie, helms both Upland NYC and the new Upland Miami and brings his California roots to the creative and flavorful cuisine.
Charcoaled and wood fired grilling is his signature style and the dishes which range from wood oven pizzas, rustic and seasonally influenced fare, seafood and charcoaled steaks and short ribs are well prepared in full view of diners in the bright open kitchen.
Situated at the southernmost end of Collins Avenue, Upland features indoor and outdoor seating in a sleek modern bistro setting. Design elements -- including walls lined with wine and preserved lemons and artichokes pay homage to Upland’s New York City counterpart.
WINMAR was the contractor of choice for Chef Smillie for realizing his vision of bringing his bit of New York to the beaches of Miami.
