The famous beachfront restaurant News Cafe reopens on Ocean Drive

The iconic beachfront restaurant known as the News Cafe has reopened in Miami Beach

Opened in 1988, News Cafe was the only outpost restaurant in the Art Deco District. It goes way before food festivals and lit nights with dances. South Beach was all about News Cafe.

Miami Beach wasn’t always as chic as it is now. In fact, it was too shabby to draw tourists’ attraction. Nonetheless, its breezy and windswept outdoor patio appealed to local people. This famous restaurant reopens just in time for spring break. More about the restaurant in this news.

With its signature log and green awning, News Cafe is situated on the ground floor of Tony Goldman’s famous properties – The Tony Hotel. This place had been key in the popularity of the art district in Wynwood.

Restauranteur Mark Soykacreated News Cafe. His other creation was Soyka, another notable restaurant near the Morningside neighborhood along Biscayne Boulevard.

Tourists and locals discovered News Cafe as the allure of Miami Beach grew, but that didn’t keep the restaurant from closing in 2021. Today, Goldman Properties has reinstated this restaurant and will operate with Vida & Estilo Restaurant Group.

The group talked about the importance of the restaurant, calling it essential to Miami Beach. If a tourist wanted to get the true taste of South Beach, they visited News Cafe back then.

The new restaurant carries the essence of the original restaurant. It’ll serve original News Cafe items and dishes to pay tribute to its iconic past.

Feel the nostalgia with original items

For those looking to reminisce about childhood, Tony’s original tuna melt or tomato soup is a must-try, as are eggs Benedict and Mediterranean plate.

The new Cafe will also include new delectable items, including loaded French fries, pina colada pancakes served with coconut syrup, and grilled pineapple. All three meals will be served at the restaurant.

Chef Henry Hanehas dreamed up dishes for the restaurant and is happy to be part of this historic restaurant to serve locals and tourists. For many people, News Cafe has been part of their childhood, and its absence has been felt much too much, according to Chef Hane.

The restaurant will serve international, local, and national newspapers on its iconic newsstand but with a quintessential touch of Goldman and Versace décor with a fashion corner.
