Black truffle pizza with fontina cheese at J&G Grill
Whether it’s a power lunch, or ladies who lunch, J&G Grill at the St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort is the spot. The second floor restaurant with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooks both the ocean and the resort’s swimming pool. Few restaurants in the world offer such a magnificent view.
For an appetizer, the Hamachi Sashimi, topped with Shiitake mushrooms and soy-ginger dressing is splendidly healthy and light.
But the real Foodie Find for lunch at J&G is the Black Truffle Pizza with Fontina Cheese. This decadent, thin crust pizza is perfect for sharing, or as a complete meal. The dish is made with black truffle oil, fontina cheese and topped with organic greens grown in south Miami. For an extra cost of $25, the pizza can include generous shavings of Australian Black Truffles that just came into season. They sell for $850 a pound. This dish turns an ordinary lunch into something special, and a special lunch into magnificent. It is a must try.
Reservations are suggested and valet is free for lunch. J&G Grill at the St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort is located at 9703 Collins Avenue in Bal Harbour. Call 305-993-3333, or go to www.jggrillmiami.com.
