Fabulous Food: Corsair by Scott Conant

Celebrated and award-winning chef, restaurateur, author and television personality Scott Conant opens Corsair by Scott Conant this month in Aventura’s Turnberry Isle Miami, a luxurious resort and golf club.

Inspired by the age of discovery and Florida's rich history of exploration, Corsair by Scott Conant offers a seasonal and rustic menu rooted in the farmhouse cooking of America and the Mediterranean. Dishes follow each season, reflecting the harvest of local farmers and purveyors while putting the quality and simplicity of their ingredients center stage.

The décor and menu offerings will be united through a sense of understated sophistication best described by the Italian expression "sprezzatura," or an air of casual elegance.

Guests can expect an authentic and comfortable dining experience anchored by unmatched service and personalized hospitality in a convivial setting.
