Celebrated chef Justin Smillie and renowned restaurateur Stephen Starr are excited to introduce Upland to Miami Beach this fall. The second outpost of the popular NYC restaurant will bring Smillie’s signature California inspired cuisine to Miami Beach’s chic South of Fifth Neighborhood in a charming setting designed by Roman and Williams with whom Starr has collaborated for Upland NYC and Le Coucou. Affectionately named for Smillie’s hometown in Southern California, Upland has received critical acclaim since its 2014 opening for Smillie’s culinary prowess and universal appeal. Fans of the restaurant include Pete Wells of the New York Times who urged readers to visit and described Smillie as a “pasta savant” and “vegetable sage.”Upland will be Starr’s fifth active project in South Florida following the successes of Steak 954, Makoto, The Continental and Le Zoo.

Estimated Opening: Nov. 2016



49 Collins Ave. Miami Beach, FL 33139
