CHARCOAL GARDEN BAR + GRILL OPENINGMar 04, 2017
CHARCOAL Garden Bar + Grill, founded by longtime Miami restaurateur and entrepreneur Ken Lyon, is being readied for opening in a couple of weeks.
Step into CHARCOAL, and you will find an open-air bar, an open kitchen, a “dining porch” that seats about 24 and a “conservatory dining room” that can seat about 40, all constructed from containers. These structures open onto a courtyard with additional seating. The conservatory contains floor to ceiling windows and will be air-conditioned; the porch has a Cuban tile floor. Both are adorned with art and photography. The containers were built by The Little River Box Co., which repurposes shipping containers into spaces for the event and hospitality industry. The CHARCOAL menu will feature Florida farm-raised meats, including whole hogs, lambs and chickens butchered in-house that will be fired up on a Josper grill using only charcoal, Lyon said. To pair with the offerings, guests choose a condiment from a punch card featuring a selection of 20 sauces, such as traditional South African braai barbecue sauce and curried coconut sauce inspired by the flavors of Mumbai, Lyon said. Other menu items may include appetizers such as garnet dandelion served with Andean red quinoa, farm egg and toasted pecans.
