As the clocks turn back for Daylight Savings, we are pleased to announce that The Cypress Room will open one half hour earlier at 5:30 p.m. beginning Monday, November 4, with a new pre-theater prix fixe dinner menu. Available Monday through Saturday for seatings from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m., this sophisticated, timely option for diners attending evening performances includes a choice of three courses composed of fall’s freshest ingredients for $49, paired with wine for $69.
Chef de cuisine Roel Alcudia is looking forward to The Cypress Room’s first fall, especially for the restaurant’s tasting menus, which change often and reflect new product coming in with the change of season.
“For pre- theater, the challenge is to make the best of three courses and keep things nimble to reflect what’s coming in from the farms,” Roel explains. “We’ll have hand-picked local baby vegetables like carrots, radishes and heirloom beans coming in now, so I’m thinking Crudites with anchovy dip and delicate Swank Specialty Produce greens in a few places. Definitely heartier flavors that taste like
fall are appealing like wild game terrines and Braised Duck with fall fruit and mushrooms. Hedy will be doing petit fours to go.”
Michael’s elegant American dining room, his third restaurant in Miami’s Design District, opened this spring, soon after receiving 3.5 stars from the Miami Herald for its “superb” nod to the spirit of classic 1920s fine dining

The restaurant is now open for lunch Monday through Friday from noon until 2:30 p.m. and dinner Monday through Thursday from 6:00 p.m. until 11:00 p.m., Friday and Saturday until Midnight, opening at 5:30 p.m. beginning November 4. In addition to its a la carte menu, Lunch Prix Fixe offers a choice of three courses for $31, paired with wine for $51, and dinner’s Tasting Menu includes five set courses for $95, paired with wine for $155.
The Cypress Room’s menu centers around a wood-burning grill and rotisserie, offering Appetizers, Selection of Cheeses, Entrees, Sides, and House Specialties cleanly composed by chef de cuisine Roel Alcudia using only the freshest, highest quality ingredients, hand-picked from America’s best small farmers, foragers, and fishermen.
