Wish: The Hotel Miami

Posted on January 9, 2007 Under Travel

If you go to one restaurant in Miami, make sure it’s Wish. Wish is in The Hotel in South Beach, and it impressed Josh and I in a way restaurants rarely do. The atmosphere had that classy, yet South Beach feeling to it, the service was top notch, and the food was absolutely exquisite. Some of the flavors that graced our taste buds: Wish Salad with green mango and baby bean sprouts, cashews, and lychee-mint vinaigrette (there were actual lycees in the salad); pan-seared diver scallops with lamb sausage, two-bean cassoulet with fennel sofrito, dijon and lemon confiet, skin-on blackened Pacific turbot (this Pacific whitefish was the chef-reccommended special); chai creme brulee; and finally, a dessert they called PB&J– it was an out-of-this-world take on a peanut butter and jelly sandwitch, complete with marshmellow, rasberry coulis, and the richest and creamiest chocolate mousse with peanut butter gelato on the side. Conde Nast Traveller named Wish one of the 50 top new restaurants in the world– and it definitely earned our nod of approval.
