Don’t you love discovering new places? Don’t you love it when it’s a brand new place with good food, no crowds and parking nearby? I know, sign me up, right!!!!! That’s Deck 16, the cute little rooftop restaurant that just opened on the 3rd floor of the new Hyatt Centric South Beach Hotel.

The restaurant’s all about locally sourced ingredients with tapas style plates inspired by Spanish and Mediterranean flavors. They have a mixed seafood salad ($16) that’s to die for. Nice and light for a warm summer night. Grilled octopus ($18), grass fed hanger steak in a mustard chorizo herb sauce ($18), pan roasted chicken thighs in lemon garlic ($12), all small dishes meant to be shared. Or you can order up a nice charcuterie board and some cheeses. They’ve got that too.

Deck 16 has indoor seating along with an outdoor patio overlooking the hotel’s pool deck. But, really, it doesn’t matter where you sit cuz chances are you won’t be disappointed with this hidden little hotel gem.
