Upscale Living Magazine - - Contents - | By Alona Ab­bady Martinez

Ac­qualina Re­sort & Spa has re­cently opened its lat­est up­scale din­ing restau­rant, AQ Chop House. The restau­rant’s open, airy space is framed by an awe-in­spir­ing de­costyle chan­de­lier, re­fur­bished from the 1930’s and sur­rounded by win­dows, al­low­ing the nat­u­ral light to set the tone in the ca­sual, yet el­e­gant space. AQ Chop house is dec­o­rated in sub­tle tones of white and gray ter­razzo against a back­drop of hand­painted gold mill­work de­tails, gold leaf wall treat­ments, and pops of warm blue che­nille fab­rics cre­at­ing a serene sense of lux­ury while guests dine on Chef Michele Mazza’s spe­cial­ties with un­in­ter­rupted views of the At­lantic Ocean.

The restau­rant fea­tures both in­door and out­door din­ing and blends a mod­ern steak­house with Ital­ian fla­vors, of­fer­ing prime cuts of meat, a se­lec­tion of crudos and seafood, and a com­plete sushi menu as well. High­lights in­clude sheep’s milk ri­cotta with sea salt and ex­tra vir­gin olive oil, branzino crudo with blood or­ange and friseé, grilled oc­to­pus, and short rib ravi­oli with sage and but­ter, made in house. Grilled fish and prime dry-age meats as well as de­lec­ta­ble sides from truf­fle French fries, broc­coli rabe to cream of corn and sautéed cauliflower with raisins are fea­tured as well.

Deborah Yager Fleming, CEO & Part­ner of Ac­qualina Re­sort, is thrilled with the new din­ing op­tion. “With the suc­cess of our Il Mulino New York restau­rant, we are ex­cited to launch AQ Chop House in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Chef Michele Mazza and his tal­ented culi­nary team. AQ Chop House per­fectly com­ple­ments our re­sort din­ing of­fer­ings cre­at­ing an ex­cit­ing culi­nary des­ti­na­tion in the heart of Sunny Isles Beach.”

AQ Chop House is lo­cated at Ac­qualina Re­sort & Spa, 17875 Collins Av­enue. Din­ner is served from 5:30 p.m. to10 p.m. seven days a week. There is valet park­ing. For reser­va­tions, please call 305-918-8000 or visit www.ac­qualinare­sort.com.
