Fooq’s Continues to Impress With New Chef

We’ve been fans of Fooq’s since the Downtown Miami restaurant first opened several years ago. Owner David Foulquier was actually one of our first interviews for the blog way back in 2015. So needless to say, the Mediterranean eatery has a special place in our hearts (and stomachs).

Recently, Fooq’s welcomed a new chef: Clark Bowen, who’s made a name for himself locally at db Bistro Moderne and Boulud Sud (its successor). At Fooq’s, Chef Bowen is putting his signature touches on the Feel Good Food that Fooq’s is known for. The delicious end result has us more excited than ever for the future of this Downtown gem.

Miami Food Pug and Fooq’s go way back. In 2015, owner David Foulquier was one of our first interviews for the blog, and we’ve been following the restaurant ever since. Although there have been a few changes in the kitchen since that initial article, there has been one big constant: Fooq’s “feel good food.” With incredible local talent leading the kitchen (first Nicole Votano and then Bryan Rojas), you could always count on Fooq’s to deliver a quality meal.

Now that Executive Chef Saul Ramos (ex-Michael’s Genuine) is at the helm, Fooq’s “feed good food” slogan should be changed to “feel great food.” Chef Ramos has revamped the international menu, keeping old favorites like the Bucatini Amatriciana and Fooq’s Burger while adding sure-to-be-new favorites like the Local Burrata and Lamb Chops.
