Chef Jorgie Ramos owns and will operate the 2,300-square-foot establishment
PINECREST, FLORIDA – (September 2016) – Barley an American Brasserie, the latest culinary venture by Chef-owner Jorgie Ramos, is set to open doors at the urban lifestyle center Downtown Dadeland on Tuesday, Sept. 27.
The gastropub will serve rustic Americana comfort food with Latin and Asian influences and will feature a raw bar and Sunday brunch. Some of the eatery’s culinary staples include: charred octopus served with seaweed and miso aioli and a farro salad; braised beef tongue served with yucca mofongo and sofrito salad; lamb neck filet doused in a horseradish tzatziki and topped with marinated cucumbers; and a Latin burger topped with chorizo cantimpalo, sweet plantains, manchego and chimichurri aioli. Barley will also feature a daily mac ‘n’ cheese rotation and a specialty craft beer, cocktail and boutique wine menu.
Barley is the second Downtown Dadeland establishment operated by Ramos. He launched the Faith and Pizza pop-up restaurant in May and has committed to donating proceeds from the first three months to three South Florida charities.
“Barley has been a year in the making, and we are excited to finally open doors,” said Ramos. “Faith & Pizza has done extremely well at Downtown Dadeland, and we are confident that Barley will share the same success.”
The opening of Barley comes on the heels of a number of recent and soon-to-be openings at Downtown Dadeland, with tenants including: The Brick, which will work with James Beard Award-winning chef Allen Susser to create a seasonally inspired menu; Nanndi Frozen Cream & Pastry Shop; Orangetheory Fitness; and the recently signed Ghee Indian Kitchen, which is owned and operated by Chef Niven Patel, the former executive chef at Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink. With a number of new chef-drive concepts opening soon, Donwtown Dadeland is becoming a premier culinary destination.
“Chef Ramos plays an active role within Downtown Dadeland,” said Shane Hillsley, Managing Director of Duncan Hillsley Capital. “He has helped to draw in a new crowd, which is only going to keep on growing as the center’s roster of tenants continues growing. We are looking forward to the official opening of Barley and what it will bring to Pinecrest and the surrounding communities.”
