Swire Hotels and the partners of Uruguay’s world-renowned Parador La Huella restaurant unveiled Quinto La Huella, an exciting new interpretation of the award winning parilla dining experience. A first for the acclaimed Latin American brand, Quinto La Huella is set to serve as the signature restaurant for the highly anticipated EAST, Miami, the exclusive U.S. flagship for Swire Hotels’ EAST collection and its first North American property located within Brickell City Centre.
Designed by Los Angeles firm studio Collective, Quinto La Huella is open on EAST Miami’s fifth floor and features a signature parilla (open-fire) at the heart of its kitchen, along with wood fire ovens fuelled by locally sourced red and white oak. Executive Chef Nano Crespo leads the urban reinvention of its sister location Parador La Huella, which will feature a sushi bar highlighting the freshest catch from Florida’s coastline and an expansive outdoor dining experience with views of the Miami skyline is sure to take guests’ breath away.
Incited by a passion for creating destination-dining establishments at properties in China and now the U.S., Brian Williams, managing director of Swire Hotels, and his executive team conducted extensive research in finding the perfect concept for Swire Hotel’s first North American hotel located in the heart of Miami.
Williams connected with the partners of Parador La Huella, Martin Pittaluga, Gustavo Barbero and Guzmán Artagaveytia to compose a team with a shared passion.
The partnership was an ideal opportunity for both brands, combining world-class experts from Swire Hotels’ hospitality team and Parador La Huella’s premier culinary executive.
An eclectic blend of world fare and a collection of culinary training from around the globe form together to assemble a collaborative menu, featuring a wide array of dishes including fresh fish and meats cooked over an open flame.
The standout feature is the signature parilla, an enormous blackened steel, centrally positioned open fire used by highly specialized chefs to tend to meats, vegetables and fish. Some of the highlights include Entrecot (rib eye), Arroz Negro (squid ink and shrimp rice), and Mollejas (sweetbreads). In addition to the parilla, Quinto La Huella will feature a full-service kitchen and wood-fire oven serving beloved favorites from Parador La Huella’s menu, as well as a variety of dishes specifically created for the new establishment. Standouts from the inaugural menu include Milanesa, lightly breaded steak fried until golden brown; Filetes de Merluza a la Plancha, a grilled filet of hake and Langostinos al Horno, oven-roasted shrimp with curried potatoes and spinach, just to name a few.
With 359 seats throughout Qunito La Huella, guests can choose to dine inside in the expansive dining lounge with its large central bar, or outside on the charming patio that frames views of Brickell City Centre’s Climate ribbon, and the signature parilla, perfect for a summer evening sipping cocktails with friends.
