(Miami, FL) March 2022 – Miami-based visionary restaurateurs, Kim Wood of Norman’s and Coco Coig of Le Chick—along with partner Victor Palacios—are thrilled to announce the opening of The Mad Butcher, an all-day gourmet sandwich shop that doubles as a lively late-night speakeasy. Nestled in the very heart of Wynwood, the brand-new culinary-entertainment concept is poised to become a new neighborhood staple and nightlife destination for locals and out-of-towners alike. Upping the ante on what people can expect of the area, The Mad Butcher marries a quick culinary experience with a swanky secret lounge that will whisk you away to a faraway disco oasis.
“Collectively, we have spent many years in the hospitality industry and have had the privilege to watch its evolution in Miami – it’s also why we know what’s missing. The Mad Butcher is meant to fill a gap as a triple-threat offering that marries delicious food, great drinks, and thoughtful music curation complete with a posh spot to enjoy them,” says Mad Butcher co-founder and longtime restaurateur, Kim Wood.
An inventive addition to Wynwood’s ever-growing upswing, The Mad Butcher serves exceptionally fresh house-made sandwiches, served with only the best locally sourced ingredients. The restaurant’s globally inspired menu features 10 of the world's most popular signature sandwiches, elevated to an entirely new level, with indoor and outdoor seating. Sandwiches offered include the Reuben Brisket, Tennessee Fried Chicken, Bánh Mì, El Cubano, Triple Cheese Truffle, Reina Pepiada, Philly Cheesesteak, Choripan, Vegetarian Shawarma, and the Español. Also on the menu, old-fashioned soft-serve ice cream and a daily selection of indulgent homemade pies.
Hidden in the back of The Mad Butcher, guests will find an elusive walk-in cooler that’ll lead them into a completely transformed speakeasy-style lounge. The secret entry reveals a cozy, disco-lit 1970’s inspired hideaway, complete with orange velvet banquettes and a giant disco ball at its center. Aside from nightly high-energy dancing thanks to curated music programming, guests can expect a sublime cocktail selection, helmed by Director of Beverage Andi Cruzatti, where she will be incorporating a variety of creative flavor-focused ingredients into the signature cocktail menu. Some of the specialty cocktails include La Vie en Rose; Rose infused Ketel One Vodka, Lindeman's Framboise Raspberry Beer Reduction, Lime, Fee Brothers Foam Bitters, Cherry Bark Vanilla Bitters, Catch Me If You Can; Amass Gin, Simple Syrup, Lime, Ume Plum Liqueur Float, Torched Rosemary, and That’s Amore; Selva Ray Chocolate Rum, Cazadores Reposado Tequila, Fernet Branca Liqueur, Panther Nitro Espresso Coffee.
“There’s just something about having your favorite, local sandwich shop–that walk-up window where the staff knows you by name and has to urge you to alter your order from ‘the regular’,” says Mad Butcher co-founder and Wynwood resident restaurant owner, Coco Coig. “The Mad Butcher promises to deliver that message from front to back with its intimate, disco-themed speakeasy where you’ll also feel at home. It’s a family affair.”
