The Setai, a member of the Leading Hotels of the World, unveiled its new look last month, showcasing a refreshed courtyard; refurbished suites; a facade refresh; new black-out shades in Art Deco suites and Nest thermostats and Samsung sound bars in The Tower suites; rebuilding of the Pool & Beach Bar; and reconstruction and resurfacing of the three pools and decks.
In addition, The Restaurant at The Setai has also freshened up its look with a new menu from executive chef Mathias Gervais, incorporating flavors from Europe’s Sun Coast into a Mediterranean-inspired menu.
Dishes reflect the Mediterranean regions of Italy, Southern France and Provence, and Spain, utilizing the Spanish technique of grilling a la plancha on a flat-top grill. We had a chance to sample a few of the dishes on the new menu, including the foie gras poele, with a sweet blend of caramelized Florida mango a la plancha, crushed amaretti cookies and mint oil; manzo, a wagyu beef carpaccio with aioli, capers and Parmigiano-Reggiano; and Colorado Lamb, which featured a side of truffle mashed potatoes. While the ambiance of a cool Florida night dining in the courtyard was beautiful enough, the team recommended the perfect pinot noir to accompany the meal, and topped of the experience with the souffle of the day.
