Celebrity Chef Michael Mina has added yet another jewel to his restaurateur crown, Pizza & Burger – Michael’s Backyard Kitchen inside of Michael Mina 74 located at the Fontainbleau Miami Beach. “Pizza & Burger was truly inspired by what our family cooks together at our own summer backyard get-togethers,” says Chef Michael Mina. “Sammy is my burger maniac, Anthony adores pizza – and Pizza & Burger’s menu is very much modeled after many fun-filled summer days at home with family and friends.”
Looking over the menu we found a plethora of seasonal comfort food leaping off the menu at us and on to our awaiting plate. Enjoy a showcase of made from scratch pizzas, rich with fresh, local ingredients. You can even design your own salad from a large selection of fresh, tasty ingredients, or nibble on an array of small bites. Sit back, enjoy and sip on a handcrafted cocktail or wines by the glass and in keeping with MM74’s reputation as one of Miami’s foremost gastropubs, a huge selection of local beers.“In keeping with the concept, prices are affordable, approachable and encourage return dining,” says Philip Goldfarb, President and COO of Fontainebleau Miami Beach. “Pizza & Burger is perfect for friendly get-togethers, family dinners, after-work drinks and bites, and should be a great addition to our summer offerings.”
Dive into a perfectly prepared medium rare dry aged burger topped with crispy pork belly, spicy ketchup, onions, and creamy white cheddar. Indulge in The Cuban Frita made with beef, chorizo, smoked paprika aioli, and crispy potato to get a real taste of Miami. If you are in the mood for a pizza have them fire up “The Surf”. This melt in your mouth pizza with butter poached lobster, chanterelle charred corn and summer truffle will please your palate with ease.
Enjoy the historic Fountainebleau Miami Beach, a spectacular blend of Golden Era glamour and modern luxury since its opening in 1954. During your stay take a seat in Michael Mina 74 right off the main lobby. Sip, savor and enjoy.
