A new beachfront restaurant, Beach Bar @ Newport Pier, at the base of the Newport Fishing Pier Park at the Sunny Isles Beach Pier Park, at 16501 Collins Ave. in Sunny Isles Beach, is set to open May 19.
Paul Flanigan and Frank Zaffere said guests can look out over the beach and enjoy a menu of sushi and sashimi, as well as traditional fresh local fish, steaks, burgers, sandwiches, salads and raw bar items. Among the offerings, under Executive Chef Joseph Whitamore, will be caviar and chicken wing appetizers, Panini and New England-style lobster roll sandwiches.
The Beach Bar @ Newport Pier will be open for lunch, dinner and late-night dining, and plans to offer breakfast in the future. The restaurant has more than 200 seats, including 120 outside under the covered patios.
The restaurant is a partnership between The Newport Group, which operates Newport Beachside Hotel & Resort and Kitchen 305, and Flanigan and Zaffere, owners of five Quarterdeck Seafood Bar & Neighborhood Grills in South Florida and Dive Bar Restaurant in Jupiter.
