Creek 28 is a lovely new addition to the Miami Beach scene
We dined at Creek 28 last night, and had a lovely dinner, in the garden. It is owned & run by Chef Kira Volz, from the Abbey Hotel.
The atmosphere is absolutely lovely (in the garden) albeit a bit humid & hot, last night. We suggested installing fans, since the indoor dining is rather limited. But it is very European and the food, or, at least what we ate was wonderful.
We began with goat cheese in philo dough with caramalized onions & fruit compote.
And for our entrees tried the Sea Bass which was served on a bed of roast Romaine & topped with chopped mushrooms (couldn't figure out what she combined with the mushrooms). The fish was done perfectly... and the flavor combos were lovely.
PROS: ambience food
LOOKING FOR A CHEAP PLACE TO STAY? IT'S CLEAN, COMFORTABLE AND CLOSE TO EVERYTHING. GREAT DEAL.
Pros: CHEAP, CLEAN, FRIENDLY
Cons: LANGUAGE-NOT MUCH ENG
You feel like you've stepped in to a time warp or the movie set of "Casablanca". The hotel is quaint, and charming if you are from Europe and are used to the small and rather damp musty rooms. The bathrooms are tiny and need upgrading, and although its lovingly "restored", does that mean we are sleeping on "used" and recycled furniture? On the plus side, the lobby is full of character, and the tropical garden with a small pool is a nice feature. And the location is a short distance to South Beach.
Pros: Deco feel, Close to Southbeach, Prices
Cons: Small rooms, Twin Beds, Needs Updating
