The Hyatt Regency Miami, which underwent a $20 million dollar renovation last year, has unveiled its' new Pure Verde
restaurant. Executive chef Michael Morris will be in charge of the
snazzily-designed venue, which just months ago was a dull, aging sports
bar. Morris, who previously helmed Hyatt properties in Tampa Bay, Key
West and Coral Gables, describes his cuisine as "Old World beginnings
with Florida, Latin and Caribbean aromas". The name Pure Verde is a
thematic reminder of the hotel having earned Green Lodging
Certification this past summer. We'll find out soon enough whether the
food is also pure, green, and sustainable.
