(June 2017) The Miami River’s hottest new eatery, Kiki on The River, will be celebrating Father’s Day with the time-honored tradition of gifting dad single malt whiskey and fine cigars. From noon till 4pm, Kiki will offer a special flight of MaCallan 12, 18 and 21 year whiskies along with a hand rolled cigar for $99.95. (This is quite a deal as a shot of MaCallan 21-year is usually $75 alone). Gather the family around for a riverfront celebration and partake of Chef Steve Rhee’s offerings like octopus, gorgeously charred and dressed with capers and olive oil, Lavraki – grilled whole Mediterranean sea bass with fine herbs, lemon and olive oil and simply grilled langoustines and head-on prawns. Other whole seafood options include the Greek tsipoura, local red snapper, and whole grilled lobster. Rounding out the savory options are lamb chops, a roasted half chicken and a half rack of baby back pork ribs.
Heralding a new dining experience on the Miami River, Kiki on the River, is Miami’s newest indoor/outdoor new dining destination. Romantic and contemporary, the riverside restaurant embraces the hospitality and spirit of the Greek islands with the service and style of a romantic island garden restaurant & lounge. Kiki is a passion project by nightlife pro Roman Jones, former Philippe Chow Miami managing partner, Aris Nanos, hospitality executive Lee Lyon and Mark Lehmkuhl of Ghosthouse Creative Group. Serving lunch and dinner daily, and a lively weekend brunch, Kiki offers a selection of time-honored Greek favorites and innovative dishes, all made from scratch in-house. Jones wants to honor the life of the Miami River, with that sense of meticulously-scuffed elegance that only a windswept island can provide.
