After seventeen successful years serving as a culinary icon and staple on Miami’s burgeoning high end food scene, on Friday, June 30, Mandarin Oriental, Miami will be closing the doors to its five-star dining concept, Azul.
For its last two dinner services on Thursday, June 29 and Friday, June 30, Azul will be welcoming the return of Chef Clay Conley of Palm Beach’s Buccan. Conley, who helmed the award-winning kitchen from 2005 to 2010, will be returning to his career launch pad and will bring dishes inspired by his critically acclaimed menu back for the last time including King crab, lardo, cashews and sugar kiss melons paired with Thai basil and Tandoori marinated Colorado lamb paired with curried shank “naan”, yogurt, eggplant and mint. The six-course menu will be priced at $105 and $140 for the menu including wine pairings.
“Azul was my first Executive Chef position and allowed me to develop my culinary style. Both Azul and Mandarin Oriental, Miami have a special place in my heart. I’m so grateful to be asked back for the last dinner services, it’s an honor,” shares Chef Clay Conley.
We’re so sad to hear about this closing, but as always are looking forward to what may come next!
