A Restaurant’s Strange Location

This South Beach spot has it all: great food, enviable views, and parking is not a problem.

The modern 1111 Lincoln is not just any parking garage but a Herzog & de Meuron one. What that means is that this South Beach garage is more than a hangout for cars. The architecture firm (starchitects) accounted for art installations, shops and one glorious rooftop restaurant Juvia, with a 100-percent real Patrick Blanc vertical garden. As you steer your car into an empty space, chefs on the next level are cold smoking scallops, shelling lobster for ceviche, thinly slicing shrimp for tiradito, and grilling rib-eye over flavorful Japanese Binchotan coals. Turn off that engine and head to the nearest table.
