Miami Spice - Canvas at The Sagamore Hotel in Miami Beach

Attention foodies... Miami Spice is about to come to a close this year and I have another place you might want to check out. Have you been to Canvas at The Sagamore Hotel in Miami Beach? This Art Deco hotel located at 1671 Collins Avenue, is a cultural centerpiece which epitomizes the artistic soul of Miami Beach. Canvas, its restaurant is no different. Flowing from the interior gallery to the outdoor patio overlooking the pool, the ambiance at Canvas is both sophisticated yet comfortable - bringing to the table a carefully prepared selection of dishes showcasing contemporary cuisine.

Shrimp Avocado Sliders
Thai Fish Tacos

I recently visited to try their Miami Spice menu and both the service and the food were fantastic. Their menu offers a four course dinner with a good variety of selections.  For starters, we had their Shrimp Avocado Sliders and their Thai Fish Tacos. Both gave our palettes a little awakening with a spicy kick that caught our attention. The shrimp sliders were prepared with grilled pineapples and jalapeno, providing a sweet and salty oasis of flavors; while the fish tacos were glazed with sriracha and mango salsa- a true tropical combination.

Tuna Crudo
Wild Mushroom Pizza

For our second course, we decided on the Tuna Crudo and the Wild Mushroom Pizza. You know if there's tuna on the menu, I am going to have it so that decision took no time at all to make. The preparation of the tuna crudo was unique and different from what I was expecting.  It was comprised of chopped pieces of ahi tuna mixed with avocado, pineapple, and basil lemon vinaigrette. It was very flavorful and refreshing and served with thinly sliced bread.  The mushroom pizza was absolutely delicious, topped with fontina cheese and truffle oil. The truffle taste was very distinct and the ingredients combined very well together.

8 oz. Wagyu Steak Frites
Seared Salmon
The feast continued with our third course.  We decided we would share some land and sea so we ordered the 8 oz.Wagyu Steak Frites and the Seared Salmon. The steak was very tender and was served with a nice Chimichurri Compound Butter. The salmon was seared with a very flavorful seasoning and served with a grilled sundried tomato pesto arepa.

Brownie Sundae
Homemade Tiramisu

Last but certainly not least, it was time for dessert. Being the chocolate lover I am, my eyes stopped immediately on the Brownie Sundae. It turned out to be a sweet concoction of marshmallows, chocolate fudge and amoretti cherries.  My dinner date opted for the Homemade Tiramisu, of which I enjoyed several spoonfuls. This was my favorite... It was creamy, light and had a unique texture.
If you haven't checked out Canvas at The Sagamore, take a drive out to Miami Beach and pay them a visit before Miami Spice says its final goodbye. For more information, visit their website here.
