South Florida chef and restaurateur Cindy Hutson will open a new restaurant at the Southeast Financial Center in downtown Miami. 

Hutson and partner Delius Shirley will open Zest in a 5,000-square-foot space at the office complex, according to a spokesperson. The duo own and operate Ortanique on Miracle Mile in Coral Gables.

When it opens in March, Zest will join other retail tenants such as Spris, the Cheese Course and David Barton Gym. The eatery will be open for lunch and dinner and feature a state-of-the-art bar and lounge, indoor and outdoor seating, and a centralized open kitchen, according to a release.

Chef de Cuisine Mike Fischetti will lead the kitchen along with Hutson. The seasonal menu will include items such as root beer braised heritage pork belly with vanilla bourbon scented boniato foam and a micro green salad for $15 and certified Angus beef sirloin steak with king crab and sweet pea risotto and cherry bourbon demi-glaze for $42.

The restaurant will have landscaped walls, a private dining room and outdoor dining for up to 75 people. Zest MRKT, which is currently open as a pop-up in the building’s lobby, will share Zest’s kitchen and be open for breakfast and lunch.

The Southeast Financial Center includes a 55-story Class A office tower, a 15-story annex building with a gym and 1,200 parking spaces, and a 30,000-square-foot outdoor plaza. Greg Masin of Cushman & Wakefield handles retail leasing for the property, while JLL’s Donald Cartwright and Nicole Vassilaros handle office leasing. J.P. Morgan Asset Management owns the Southeast Financial Center. – Katherine Kallergis
