Fooq’s Gets a New Chef and a New Menu

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.
