Eduardo Durazo and Oscar Del Rivero have created a swift and fierce mixture of tastes in Miami's Latin Food scenery with the opening of their new restaurant, Jaguar Ceviche Spoon Bar and Latam Grill.
From ceviches displayed under tikki lanterns, to Top Sirloins and Fried Onion Rings, Jaguar offers a menu inspired on the unique and diverse foods found in Latin America. Located on 3067 Grand Avenue in Coconut Grove, next to Cocowalk, Jaguar offers visitors ceramic spoon Ceviche samplers, succulent meats paired with distinctive Latin sauces, fresh catches, and more.
"We envisioned Jaguar as the reflection of Latin America through dishes inspired in the many cultures and tastes found there," said Chef Del Rivero. "We hope to have captured and brought to Miami the essence that makes each country unique," added Durazo.
Jaguar introduces patrons to the diverse aromas of traditional Latin America's cuisine inside soft burgundy and yellow ceilings and walls, painted with natural flower pigments from Oaxaca. Contributing to the originality of Jaguar are also original paintings by artist Dionisio Ceballos, recognized at the 1996 Cannes Film Festival and whose reproduction were showcased in the 2002 film "Frida".
Jaguar's menu exhibits the eclectic nature of South and Latin America reflecting the many flavors one can experience while traveling in Latin America. Jaguar's philosophy is also representative of the Latin American culture is its family ties. Three of the fours partners are part of the same large family: Eduardo Durazo, Oscar Del Rivero, nephew of Durazo, Eduardo Del Rivero, brother-in-law of Durazo. and David Quintero. The fourth partner has been Eduardo Durazo's friend for decades and brings his commitment to innovation, quality and service. More subtle details in the décor can also be attributed to the family and long-time family friends. Finally, the restaurant painting job was the ultimate family affair done by parents, children, cousins, uncles and in-laws.
