MIAMI, FL – December 15, 2021 — Show Hospitality, the team behind Midtown’s vibey Mykonos meets Tulum-inspired enclave Maü Miami, is set to debut its latest restaurant, Playa, this December 21st. The new Southern Mediterranean concept is coming to the Sterling Building, a mixed-use complex in the heart of South Beach on Lincoln Road. Located just a few blocks off the beach, Lincoln Road Mall is South Florida's famous outdoor shopping and alfresco dining experience. Playa will be housed in an expansive 4,400-square-foot space, not including the beautiful outdoor terrace where guests can enjoy the ocean breeze and fabulous people-watching.

Playa’s airy indoor-outdoor dining areas will invite guests to enjoy a comforting yet elegant lunch or dinner surrounded by soothing tropical greenery and nature-inspired decor. Imagine dining in a lush environment with bamboo imported from Tulum, leather seating, and hanging pendants, where waterfalls arch from the ceilings and provide the soundtrack to your meal. When the sun sets, Playa takes cues from its lively SoBe neighborhood, transforming into an exhilarating experience complete with live music and unique entertainment.

The menu is a fusion of classic Mediterranean cuisine and familiar Southern fare, showcasing bold flavors and quality ingredients that come together to create a memorable dining experience in the heart of South Beach. Highlights of Playa’s unique menu consisting of fresh-cut, high-end meats, seafood specialties, and southern delights include the Blackened Catfish & Grits, Lobster Ravioli, Crab Cakes, and a Cajun Ribeye.
