Buns & Buns prepares for its highly-anticipated South Miami debut in January 2014. Shrouded in mystery, the innovative team behind the restaurant is ready to share additional menu items inspired by the culinary discoveries found on their trip around the world. The upscale yet casual concept will offer a globally-dynamic menu with a focus on freshly baked breads, an exotic blend of handcrafted sauces and spices, and a hearty selection of meat, vegetable and seafood dishes. South Florida foodies will be able to customize their dining experience by mixing and matching breads and buns with different dishes, sharing in the adventurous spirit of the restaurant.
With inspiration stemming from exotic destinations, Buns & Buns’ menu will take palates on a culinary world tour. Expertly crafted by passionate chefs, the ingredient-driven restaurant will serve premium fine dining cuisine at an accessible price, with made-to-order dishes served over-the-counter and at the Chef’s Bar. The diner’s journey will begin by choosing from a variety of freshly baked Buns such as brioche basted and baked with a warm butter glaze; garlic naan stuffed with fontina and aged white cheddar cheeses; and savory herb bread infused with a blend of rosemary, thyme and garlic. Next, delectable Grills will include a flavor packed pan roasted chili shrimp ($15) sautéed with caramelized shallots, garlic, and dried red chili flakes finished with cilantro, fresh lime juice and served with citrus aioli; savory deckle ($20) marinated in sweet soy, Sriracha sauce, toasted coriander seeds and cilantro, plated with egg yolk, a crispy Serrano ham chip and harissa; and perfectly steamed mussels ($10) served in a ceramic bowl with house-made curry broth.
Lighter fare will include a variety of refreshing house salads made with local and seasonal ingredients such as the Burrata Salad ($10) with mozzarella and chargrilled tomatoes, topped with olive oil crisp croutons, and drizzled with barrel-aged Bourbon sherry vinegar; and the Filo Salad ($10), a mix of watercress, greens and pomegranate seeds, topped with crispy filo strips marinated in chili oil and tossed in a zesty orange citrus dressing. Munchies will complement the robust flavors of Buns and Grills, and will include unique items such as salmon skin chicharrones ($5).
Buns & Buns will be located across from the Shops at Sunset Place at 5748 Sunset Drive. The restaurant will open for lunch and dinner daily. Ample metered street parking will be available.
