Villa Azur: An Enchanting Dining Experience in Miami Beach

Once you enter Villa Azur in Miami Beach, an energetic and ethereal restaurant, you will be transported into a world where dining is not just about enjoying a meal. It’s an experience that you’ll never forget. Think of the restaurant as a magical location, proven by the sparkling lights that greet you once you enter their garden. It’s a dining area that will make you feel like you are inside your own unique fairytale, one created just for your enjoyment.

The restaurant will not only make you feel like royalty but also as you have escaped into your own upscale and intimate restaurant experience.

When we visited the restaurant recently, we were truly impressed by the new Spring Menu, full of offerings meant to tantalize your tastebuds. The dishes are not just fresh and creative, but they leave you delighted with their creative flair and the Chef’s attention to detail.

Executive Chef Vincent Catala, who warmly greeted us during our visit, is an expert at blending his well-thought-out innovative cooking techniques. The Chef is not only passionate about the menu and his creations, but he also has a vast knowledge of what it takes to elevate a customer’s dining experience.

While visiting the restaurant, not onlydid we have a chance to try the items on the new menu, but we were impressed with our knowledgeable and kind server and how he considered our favorite spirits and flavors when it came to well-crafted cocktails. Ramelvis, our server at the time, made sure that we never ran out of cocktails to have with our meal and encouraged us to try cocktails that matched our meal. And he was an expert at pairing up wines with our dishes towards the end of the experience. This proves that not only is the staff proven to be professional and caring, but they also know how to make customers feel comfortable and engaged during their time spent at the restaurant.

Some starters that we recommend that we loved are the Red Beet and Salmon Crudo, which is truly refreshing and mixes in red beets with fresh salmon, perfectly drizzled with arugula aioli, and all of this goes perfectly with the citrus hummus that accompanies the starter. Then there’s the thinly sliced and premium Wagyu Beef Carpaccio, a fancy dish that is presented with tapioca pearls, roasted shallots, arugula aioli, and citrus hummus, creating a delicious blend of flavors.

Some exciting and delectable main dishes on the menu are the Pan-Seared Sea Bass with Chorizo Crust, a fresh and perfectly seared sea bass that is just made even better with a chorizo crust, giving the fish a unique flavor that is as delicious as it is unexpected. Another recommendation is the Vodka and Crab Risotto, which is a very different type of risotto tossed and prepared tableside on a pecorino cheese wheel aged 12 months. You’ll love the added flair of the Elyx vodka-flamed Pomodoro cream prepared tableside, which adds elegance and excitement to the dish and the moment you are about to dig into the dish.

Lastly, don’t forget to take the time to enjoy a delicious, sweet dessert to end the night right. One delight is The Peach, a wonderful peach and cardamom compote with dulce-lemon cream, vanilla crumble, peach coulis, and vanilla ice cream. This dessert will leave you happy that you decided to indulge in a sweet something at the end of a luxurious and classy meal.

His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico.
