Beauty & the Butcher, the restaurant from Top Chef winner and James Beard semifinalist, Jeremy Ford and Miami’s award-winning, local restaurant group, Grove Bay Hospitality Group. Located in the Coral Gables/South Miami neighborhood, Beauty & the Butcher marks the second restaurant collaboration between Chef Ford and Grove Bay who, together, brought the critically-acclaimed restaurant Stubborn Seed to South Beach five years ago. Since its opening, Stubborn Seed has gone on to garner national recognition, with the Michelin Guide awarding the restaurant a coveted star earlier this year for its stellar cuisine. Beauty & the Butcher showcases Ford’s culinary prowess in a warm, inviting space that features a little of that sharp edge he’s known for.

“We’re excited to once again collaborate with Jeremy to open a new restaurant and bring his talent to Miami’s suburban neighborhoods,” says Ignacio Garcia-Menocal, CEO & co-founder of Grove Bay. “Beauty & the Butcher will offer a dining experience that only Jeremy can create and we’re thrilled to bring this new concept to life,” adds Francesco Balli, CEO & co-founder of Grove Bay.

Closer to home and his heart, the name Beauty & the Butcher is a nod to Jeremy’s first daughter, Madelynn (the beauty) and himself (the butcher).

The concept of community and collaboration is reinforced and celebrated throughout the restaurant. By sourcing locally, Ford supports his network of local farmers and purveyors to bring the highest quality ingredients to each dish at Beauty & the Butcher. The menu is built to be shared and is broken out into four sections: Table Snacks, Light & Bright, Golden & Crispy and Mains. Here, Ford incorporates his inventive culinary approach featuring global spices. Standout dishes include the Dry-Aged Japanese Yellowtail Crudo with winter citrus, dried olive, mint & chervil; the Crispy Duroc Pork Belly with pickled cucumber, spiced broth, mint & fennel salsa verde; the Local Lettuces salad with radishes, house-made yogurt, soft herbs and turmeric vinaigrette; and a show-stopping Truffle Tart made with foie gras & green apple, truffles, sunflower and pine nuts. A special dry-aging program will highlight unique Charcuterie cuts for the table. Tapping into the butcher aspect, Ford showcases an impressive Wagyu Tomahawk for the Table, served with all the fixings; a 48-hour Smoked Beef Rib with winter vegetable pickle, herb crepes, shiso, butter lettuce and lime; and Florida Genuine Red Snapper with Colombian chorizo, white bean cassoulet, shaved celery and apple salad. Executive Pastry Chef Ana De Sa Martins, who worked alongside Ford at Stubborn Seed, has created unique desserts that bring a warm, comforting and culinary-driven end to the entire dining experience. Her Dutch Baby Apple dessert is sure to get ordered on repeat.

Complementing the cuisine is Beauty & the Butcher’s stellar beverage program featuring classic cocktails reimagined for the modern age. The Belle Rose blends gin, Italicus, malbec-hibiscus reduction and rose water air; the Little Piggy brings some of that Old Fashioned vibe to the table, featuring Hickory Smoked Pork Belly Washed-Maker’s Mark with fig nectar, tawny power and blackstrap bitters; and the Rock the Bells combines Maestro Dobel, Ancho Reyes liqueur, passion fruit sabayon, tobacco bitters and fresh lime. There is also a selection of non-alcoholic cocktails like the Flower Girl with Lyre’s Agave Blanco, elderflower, cucumber and lime; and the Skinny Hinny with Seedlip Spice, sour mint cordial and ginger beer.

Beauty & the Butcher features an expansive modern dining room with seating for 160, including 30 seats at the bar, and blends contemporary decor with the comforts of home. A smooth gray-veined quartz bar anchors the space and wraps around a display of dry-aging meats. Warm earth-toned woods and glittering bronze accents are found throughout and tabletops and dining chairs alternate between white quartz, honey and caramel hues. Cozy booths are upholstered in forest green leather and are juxtaposed with artfully-decorated bookshelves. Soft lighting from the room’s brass-toned chandeliers emit an inviting glow that runs through the floor-to-ceiling windows out onto the street corner. Tucked away at the back of the restaurant, a private dining room with seating for up to 30 sitting or 60 cocktail-style allows for intimate private events. The exterior of the restaurant features natural elements including red oak wood and limestone, with bronze metal framing the corner entrance to the restaurant.

Beauty & The Butcher is located at 6915 Red Rd. in Coral Gables.
