New Summer Specials at The Setai
The Setai Miami Beach, an oasis of luxury and tranquility in the heart of South Beach is inviting diners to enjoy lunch at its two distinctive dining destinations this summer. Jaya, a casually elegant Pan-Asian restaurant offers the choice of an opulent dining room or outdoor courtyard seating.
Jaya’s menu features an exceptional selection of dishes from India, Malaysia, Indonesia, China, Thailand and Japan; while the resort’s open-air Ocean Grill, boasts a relaxed, chic beachfront setting for vibrant, fresh Mediterranean lunchtime fare. Both restaurants offer three-course prix-fixe lunch menus, effective immediately; Monday through Friday from noon to 3:30 PM. Priced at $34 per person, exclusive of tax and service charge, the menus offer an array of delectable dishes including starter, main and a dessert.
Menu choices are subject to change. Outdoor summer dining at both restaurants is made pleasant with relief from Florida weather offered with retractable awnings and cool misting fans in both spots, while ocean breezes supplement the setting at Ocean Grill.
