Located at the famed Vagabond Hotel in the Miami Modern (MiMo) historical district, the Vagabond Restaurant & Bar is the first collaboration between Restaurateur Alvaro Perez Miranda, Executive Chef Alex Chang, and Financier Christopher Wang, who are partners in Metromet LLC, a restaurant management company.
The restaurant will feature a global menu anchored in American, Latin and Asian influences. The menu is a coalescence of Executive Chef Alex Chang¹s worldly experiences over the last few years, having had stints at such renowned restaurants as Animal in Los Angeles, and Michelin-starred Pujol in Polanco, Mexico, Les Creations de Narisawa in Tokyo, and In De Wulf in Heuvelland, Belgium.
The concept for the restaurant is ³casual fine dining² and was created to cater to the ³contemporary vagabond,² a modern-day adventurer with a penchant for global food, drink, and art. The mantra of casual fine dining pervades everything in the restaurant from the understated elegance in Chef Chang¹s culinary creations to the floor service helmed by Mssrs. Perez and Wang, which will be a warm, high-energy vibe with the goal of treating every patron as a VIP.
Signature dishes include the Kanpachi Ceviche (made with yuzu, avocado, & quinoa) and the Vagabond burger (dry-aged beef served on a potato bun with American cheese, B&B pickle, remoulade, and fries).
The bar will feature classic cocktails with a modern twist such as the Vieux Carré (Dillon¹s White Rye, D¹USSÉ Cognac, & Carpano Antica Vermouth).
