Thomas Keller, the award-winning chef who founded Per Se in Manhattan and French Laundry in California, amongst others, will open a new concept in Surfside's Surf Club Four Seasons. Keller has looked at Miami for over five years, finally deciding to open in Surf Club Four Seasons after learning of the project and sites former history and beautiful new construction that has become a stunning additon to the Surfside community. Keller maintains that while his Surf Club Four Seasons concept will be upscale, it will not be another very fine dining restaurant but a more accessible restaurant for all to enjoy. As he told the Miami Herald, “I don’t think I’ll ever open another fine dining restaurant in America. Trying to replicate that energy, I’m not going to do that, not at my age, the Surf Club will not be about my personality.”
Surf Club Four Seasons is a luxury hotel and residential condo project that spans 9 acres with 965 feet of beach frontage. The development includes a 77-room Four Seasons Hotel as well as two 12-story residential buildings with 150 condos. Amenities include four swimming pools, a spa and gym, and 40 beach cabanas. Condo prices range from $3.4 million to $18 million and the project is over 80 percent sold as reported by ISG Miami. Surf Club Four Seasons is expected to open in 2018.
