Earlier this year, CityPlace Doral opened to the public and brought a bevy of dining, shopping and entertainment options to the city. One of those new restaurants was Icebox Cafe. Known for its globally inspired American cuisine, Icebox Cafe in CityPlace Doral builds upon its South Beach sibling’s success by complementing its extensive menu with a beautiful two-floor layout to ensure you have a fun night out at CPD.
A lot has changed since our last visit to Essensia. Former Executive Chef Venoy Rogers has moved on, and Executive Chef Julie Frans is now leading the kitchen. Chef Frans is no stranger to the restaurant at The Palms Hotel & Spa: She’s back at the helm after taking a two-year break that included plenty of travel around the globe. What you see on the seasonal menu is inspired by these journeys.
When we last visited Burlock Coast Seafare and Spirits at The Ritz-Carlton in Fort Lauderdale, we were all about their dinner offerings. This time, we’re all about their bottomless brunch. Don’t let the Seafare in the name fool you: There’s so much more to the menu than meets the eye — and brunch is the perfect example.
