The Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts in Miami raises the curtain this month on a new on-site restaurant. 

Brava, billed as a farm-to-table concept that emphasizes local ingredients, opens Nov. 21 with chef Hector Torres running the kitchen. The prix-fixe restaurant will host two seatings before evening performances and one seating before matinees.

Brava’s menu will include a 1300 Tapas Platter (pictured here and named for the Arsht Center’s 1300 Biscayne Blvd. address) with serrano ham, chorizo, baby artichokes, manchego, drunken goat cheese and Spanish olives, as well as a Watercress Salad with peppered goat cheese, port-glazed shallots, tangerine and white balsamic vinaigrette.

In addition to Brava, which replaces Prelude by Barton G., the Arsht Center has contracted with Ovations Food Services to oversee catering and concessions at the venue. The center recently announced a partnership with Books & Books that will bring a cafe and retail store to the performing-arts campus by year’s end, and a Monday farmers market is expected to start next month. 

“Through this inventive marriage of culinary and performing arts, foodies and culturists alike are certain to enjoy a one-stop Arsht Center experience,” Arsht Center president and CEO John Richard said. 

Brava reservations will be accepted starting Wednesday. Call 305-949-6722.
