Bentley Residences, the first-ever Bentley-branded residential tower in the world, announces a partnership with four-time James Beard award-winning celebrity chef Todd English to curate the menu and experience for the project’s private restaurant. Chef Todd English is a highly recognized restaurateur, author and television personality best known for his current restaurants, Olives, Figs, and Pappas Taverna, his newest New York City outpost, as well as his appearances on Food Network, PBS and popular shows like Top Chef and Iron Chef. The private restaurant by Todd English will be the chef’s first private condominium concept, set to feature fresh cuisine and offer residents a casual, yet sophisticated environment.
“Bringing in the culinary expertise of a world-renowned chef such as Todd English further elevates the sense of living we are creating for our residents,” said Gil Dezer, President of Dezer Development in a statement. “Bentley Residences will deliver a coveted level of exclusivity and privacy while incorporating luxuries ordinarily found in a five-star resort, like this above-and-beyond culinary concept.”
Located on the lobby level with views of the resort-style pool and exposures of the ocean, the private restaurant will be open to residents for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and available for private catering as well as poolside dining. Chef Todd English will personally appear at the private restaurant for select resident-only events, such as food and wine pairings and demonstrations. The menus will rotate seasonally, and a curated menu will also be available for in-residence dining.
“Every aspect of Bentley Residences has been so thoughtfully designed to perfection and I’m incredibly honored for this opportunity to partner with Gil Dezer and further elevate the luxurious lifestyle through unique culinary creations for residents,” said Todd English. “We’re excited to provide a curated experience with rotating seasonal menus that will make dining at Bentley Residences a joy for residents and their guests.”
Interiors by Bentley Motors, this private culinary experience will be one-of-a-kind, only to be enjoyed by the residents and their welcomed guests. Many of the fabrics and materials incorporated into the design of the dining spaces were inspired by high-end luxury Bentley vehicles, creating a connection and link to the prestigious automobile brand. For example, the high-gloss flooring is a nod to Bentley’s signature diamond patterning, which is also featured on the exterior architecture of the building. The interiors of the private restaurant combine a dark color palette and bold finishes for an upscale moody aesthetic. Forest green backlit banquettes create a sense of privacy within the room, and dramatic louvers cladding the walls give the space an air of drama. Ample bar seating is also available for a more relaxed and casual dining experience.
As Chef Todd English’s first private restaurant, the offering will benefit from his decades of experience launching some of the world’s most successful concepts. Not only does he have high recognition for his food, but English has also been seen on a number of television shows such as The Food Network’s Opening Soon, Iron Chef, Top Chef, Today Show, and Food Trip with Todd English. Additionally, he has also served as Executive Celebrity Chef for star-studded events including the Super Bowl, Fashion Week, Tony Awards & Sundance Film Festival.
In addition to the resident-only restaurant, Bentley Residences will also boast an impressive 20,000 square feet of exclusive amenities across the span of three levels. Some of these amenities include a whiskey and cigar lounge, wellness and revitalization spa, cinema, cabanas, and oceanfront beauty salon. Amongst the most impressive amenities is the car elevator, also named the Dezervator, which is able to transport residents’ vehicles from the ground floor up to the privacy of their own homes all without having to get out of the car. The Dezervator along with the glass-ensconced garage allows residents to keep their prized cars in pristine condition and on display in their living rooms.
Situated at 18401 Collins Ave, the 62-story building in Miami’s Sunny Isles Beach neighborhood features 216 luxury condominiums, priced from $5.25 million. Residences will offer sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean and Intracoastal, expansive outdoor terrace space, and state-of-the-art Gaggenau appliances throughout the kitchen.
