CHARCOAL invites Miamians to park their phones and take a break for some vibrant food, drinks and conversation. CHARCOAL Garden Bar + Grill focuses on “analog cuisine”–simple but elegantly prepared food fired over a Josper grill. In this vein, CHARCOAL invites everyone to disconnect and enjoy its new Analog Nights, a dinner under the stars happening weekly on Wednesdays from 5 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. beginning this coming Wednesday, February 21st.
In addition to CHARCOAL’s regular menu, special Analog Nights offerings served family-style include CHARCOAL’s choucroute garnie platter with grilled, locally-sourced Proper sausage, slow Josper-roasted pork belly and fall-off-the-bone pork shoulder accompanied by beer-braised, house-cured sauerkraut, tiny potatoes and grainy dijon served along sides including wilted garden greens and the creamiest Parmigiano-crusted Yukon potato pureé.
Alternatively, your party can enjoy CHARCOAL’s elegantly, yet simply prepared lemon and green olive oil-basted, Josper-roasted Faroe Island salmon also served family-style for the table along with wilted garden greens and Parmigiano-crusted Yukon potato pureé. For dessert, delve into the luxurious brioche bread pudding decadently topped with caramel sauce and vanilla bean ice cream, also served family-style.
While enjoying your dinner, turn back the dial to a time when connections were made through conversation without the help of any mobile devices. CHARCOAL will provide a safe place to store your phone at the table so that you can disconnect and unwind with friends and family over food and drink. Keep your device parked for the night and receive a complimentary decadent chocolate torte topped with vanilla creme anglaise and an almond crumble. Stroll over to The Wynwood Yard after dinner to enjoy Jazz at The Yard featuring world class jazz musicians and performers.
CHARCOAL’s menu rotates regularly and offers off-the-industrial-grid sourced meat, fish and seafood fired up on a Josper grill using only real charcoal, resulting in a burst of fully developed flavors. An urban garden adjacent to CHARCOAL provides herbs and vegetables for the menu that also will include appetizers like American farmstead cheeses, 36-hour dill-cured salmon gravlox served with rye toast, pickled red onion and Swedish dill mustard sauce, in addition to a selection of seasonal charcoal-blistered vegetables.
The one-year-old CHARCOAL is Miami’s first-ever full-service restaurants built entirely out of a collection of modified shipping containers. The indoor/outdoor containers surround a Roman-shaded central courtyard and give way to a lush urban garden. The conservatory room offers indoor, air-conditioned seating as well.
CHARCOAL is part of The Wynwood Yard and is located at 82 NW 29th Street. The restaurant is open Tuesday through Sunday starting at 5:00 p.m., while the bar opens at 4 p.m. weekdays and at 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. In addition, CHARCOAL features an easy breezy happy hour from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays with specials including $8 classic cocktails, half-off house bottled beer and 64 oz draft growlers and $6 house wines.
In addition, on Tuesdays, join CHARCOAL Garden Bar + Grill for Industry Nights running the entire evening and offering happy hour drink specials and 50% discount on all farmstead cheeses and charcuterie offerings (excluding The Explosion) and all appetizers like scallop crudo, a carpaccio of raw sea scallops dressed to order with lemon-beetroot mustard vinaigrette or mezze, a Mediterranean-inspired combination of smoky Josper-grilled eggplant, carrot tahini, creamy labneh, crispy cucumber salad with feta, tomatoes and olives served with grilled pita bread (offer does not include oysters and the Seafood Tray). You’ll also enjoy CHARCOAL’s crowd-pleasing macaroni + cheeses at half price, josper grill gratin of a velvety blend of farmstead cheeses folded into a creamy Mornay sauce over pasta.
