NYC’s The Smile has joined forces with David Grutman and developer Craig Robins to launch a casual eatery in the heart of Miami’s Design District. OTL is designed to be a community hangout with coffee, breakfast, drinks, sandwiches and pastries with an upstairs creative space perfect for wellness classes and designer pop-ups. The locale will also feature a happy hour. The menu includes organic food available on-the-go or to-stay, for those looking to sit and make the most of the vibrant destination. Breakfast items include healthy options such as granola, avocado toast, eggs and fruit. Sandwiches are served on freshly-made Zak the Baker bread. Salad ingredients, wraps and pastries are locally sourced.
“We really admire what Craig [Robins] has done with the District, where art is on view at every turn, and we hope OTL will become a place in the neighborhood where locals and visitors feel free to enjoy a meal, get work done or just unwind and hang out,” says Carlos Quirarte, co-owner of The Smile.
The two-story, 7,000-square-foot restaurant and café also features ultra high-speed internet and both indoor and outdoor seating, encouraging patrons to treat the space as their creative headquarters in the District. In keeping with the trend of the district, OTL will display dynamic pieces of art. Currently on display are two vibrant pieces that resemble magnetized bullet holes by Nate Lowman named “Pink Altima” and “Green Altima.”
OTL is located at 160 NE 40th Street in Miami
