Enjoy Celebrity Radio’s Traymore Restaurant Review Metropolitan by COMO Miami Beach….
Traymore Restaurant is located at the newly renovated Metropolitan Hotel by COMO overlooking the world famous Miami Beach.
This sensational fish restaurant has originality by the bucket load.
Unique delicate flavour combinations that never outshine the magnificent fresh fish, but complimenting their local brilliance.
I truly wish I could find a restaurant this exciting in my home town.

Enjoy an Exclusive audio / visual review and interview with Chef Jonathan Lane recorded at the Traymore in 2015:
The Metropolitan Hotel by COMO has 74 newly renovated rooms, a top restaurant, incredible beach location and views n the heart of the Miami Beach Historic District – this is a hotel that stands out in a sea of corporate blandness.
Metropolitan Miami Beach delivers the perfect blend of European sophistication, US luxury and service and a history that is apparent from the moment you arrive.
The atmosphere is cool, unprotentious, indulgent and inviting with elegant design by Paola Navone.
Even the tableside coat tree (picture 3) has a touch of class that I’ve not seen before….
There are endless fine dining options in Miami Beach and The Traynore can stand tall.
With fresh & seasonal ingredients – The Traymore is an outstanding option for a memorable feel good meal.
Exceutive Chef Jonathan Lane understands theatre and making your meal an event.
He should be hugely proud of his presentation – this man is world class and can cook exceptionally well.
So, let the meal begin……
What a seafood platter – in fact the epitome of fish indulgence that everyone should aspire to.
Fresh. Juicy. Packed with flavour. Stunning products. Simple. Refined.

Next came a delicious tuna tartare – suculant, packed with flavour and melt in your mouth fresh.
Normally I’m weary of grilled octopus in any restaurant (including a seafood eateries) – this dish dispelled all myths!
It appears octopus can be tender, delicious and a perfect start to a meal if cooked by the right chef….
The grouper was the star attraction – meaty, flavour-packed and cooked to perfection.
The Mahi-mahi was a special created dish by Chef Jonathan in tribute to my British roots.
Both plates blew my mind with their creativity. They were both not only visual art but a sensation to the palate.
Dessert was an absolute triumph:
The ‘Orange Texture’ was simply stunning with blood orange sorbet and the most moreish, but light, chocolate mouse on a crispy base. Worth a visit in itself.
Next came the Mango ‘cannolis’ followed by incredible filo slices with strawberries, citrus sorbet & chartreuse cream…..simple divine!
Metropolitan by COMO stands tall over Miami Beach with its pool, restaurant and bar.
“Whether you are feasting on Florida’s seafood at Traymore restaurant or grazing on ‘crudo’ in a pool cabana, there remains one common commitment: locally-sourced, quality ingredients and an ‘old-fashioned’ service ethic that recalls Miami’s golden age.” – They deliver what they promise.
The rooms are brand new and were totally renovated less than a year ago.
Simple, spotlessly clean, modern and ideal for the 2015 traveller.
