September Spice @ The Dutch


It's no secret that I am a huge fan of chef Carmellini and his team at The Dutch.  Chefs Carmellini, Hanlon and Gripper absolutely crushed a recent Cobaya dinner.  I was fortunately invited to a complimentary tasting of their new Miami Spice menu offerings for September and left very impressed.  It is refreshing to see a chef and restaurant of their stature taking Miami Spice so seriously.  It's a win for Miami food fans and a great opportunity to experience The Dutch and their great Spice menu seven days a week. 



Chef Carmellini was in the house discussing the Spice dishes.


Chilled Sweet Corn Soup with fire roasted corn, piquillo peppers, ancho chile.

Chicken Wings- confit drumstick, vadouvan, apple, cauliflower.

Foie Gras Agnolotti- fennel coulis, roasted figs, port reduction. This is a must order dish for pasta and foie fans. The $10.00 supplement is worth every cent.


Chicken Caesar- roast chicken, grilled romaine hearts, white anchovy, parmesan. This is a caesar that even non caesar fans will enjoy. The roast chicken was moist and full of flavor. 

Skate Wing- ras el handout, saffron cous cous, home-made raisin, toasted almond. The skate was cooked perfectly and the accompanying ingredients were packed with great flavor. This is a standout dish and a must order.

Pastry chef Josh Gripper talking dessert.

Lemon Vanilla Cheescake- blueberry compote, graham cracker crisp.

Milk Chocolate Budino- roasted sour cherry, yuzu ice cream.  Spice is nice when you end it with a sweet treat!   

You will be hard pressed to find better Miami Spice dishes and value in town. You do not want to miss out on this.

I don't see these items on the Miami Spice listing online... is the website incorrect?

The Dutch website is updated with the current menu. Same as I posted. It just started today 9/1 so the Miami Spice site must not be updated.

I want to try that Chilled Sweet Corn Soup because of the corn and ancho chille. Do they have other signature dishes that has corns or ancho chille?

A friend of mine lives near that place and the good news is that, our family will be spending our next week in his house. Bottom-line is that, we can have our chance to try eating at that restaurant.

If the upside to a meal is eating, the downside is the dirty dishes that come afterward. If you don’t want to eat every dinner on paper plates, you’re going to have to wash them.
