Originally slated to open last March, Wynwood Diner, whose MO is that it “reinvents one of the most iconic pieces of Americana and dropkicks it into the 21st century with hints of an old-world European café,” opens Friday.
“I am happy to be in a space that merges the charming European café culture with a cool, nostalgic vibe of an American diner,” says GM Jerry Böck, a native of Holland whose résumé includes Cecconi’s, Prime Italian, Nikki Beach and Prime 112.
On the menu: all-day breakfast options, including nutmeg and bourbon French toast, and omelets like pork belly, feta and baby arugula. Also look for a chicken and waffle club sandwich, made with fried heirloom tomatoes and chipotle mayo with a side of truffle fries.
The diner serves premium natural beef, nitrate-free pork and all-natural chicken and eggs, along with daily baked bread by Zak the Baker and coffee by Relentless Roasters.
Executive chef Michael Castino has worked at Estiatorio Milos, Pride & Joy and Tavern on the Green in NYC. Wynwood Diner’s cocktail menu was created by Broken Shaker and 27 alum Vanessa Hulsey.
Wynwood Diner is located at 2601 NW Second Ave.; wynwooddiner.com or 305-747-7888.
