New American Harvest location reflects owners' original concept


American Harvest

5958 S. Dixie Highway, South Miami, 786-785-1001,

The owners of the year-old fast-casual eatery in Brickell City Centre have introduced this second location with more seating and an expanded menu.

The new building is the ideal space for the restaurant, unlike the original location next to sibling Big Easy Winebar and Grill.

“We’re excited to see the reaction when guests experience the restaurant as we originally conceived it, with more seats, more offerings, more choices,” CEO Francesco Balli says in a press release. “The growing brand will feature additional locations throughout South Florida, including Doral and Coral Gables.”

New items include smoothies ($6), toasts with toppings ($6-$9), such as stracciatella cheese and jam, and acai bowls ($13). Original favorites are the Blue’s Tacos with veggies, chicken or steak ($8-$13) and the sweet-potato house salad with toasted pecans and charred lemon vinaigrette ($9).

Another first is weekend brunch with breakfast tacos ($6), nine-grain French toast ($7) and Cubano breakfast skillet ($9).

Beer and wine are available ($5-$7).

Lunch and dinner are served daily amid a modern farmhouse vibe with a neutral color palette, porcelain mosaic floor tiles, soaring ceiling, industrial pendant lighting, Chicago brick walls and glass-paneled walls. Planters surround the patio with red umbrellas.
