If you’ve never had Jumbo Lump Crab Benedict with Parsley Aioli or French Toast Guava Dulce de Leche for breakfast, you haven’t lived. But not to worry, the decadent LEYNIA—which opened Wednesday at Delano South Beach—will make sure your every food craving is taken care of. A rare combination of Japanese and Argentinian influences, the menu was conceived by executive chef Jose Icardi, formerly of Katsuya at SLS South Beach.

Not even open a week, guests already include Miami royalty Chris Bosh, Dwayne Wade, Gabrielle Union and Tyson Beckford who feasted on family style dinners prepared, as Eater Miami noted, “a la Lena on the wood-fired grill.” But it’s not just the food that stands out, it’s how it’s served: via hand-painted bikes, imported from Argentina. “Not enough people are doing dessert bikes these days,” remarked Urban Daddy. So if you’re looking for a meal that’s playful, delicious and sophisticated, look no further and reserve your table today.
