Welcome to Habitat – 1 Hotel,
Celebrated Chef/Restaurateur José Mendín of Food Comma Hospitality Group extended his culinary reach with the group’s acclaimed, new restaurant concept, Habitat by José Mendín, housed inside the ecologically conscious 1 Hotel South Beach. The team has created a beautiful signature restaurant that fuses culinary creativity and reflects Mendin’s culinary roots, extensive training and his love for big flavors. For Habitat, FCHG have procured a powerhouse team of international talent including Spanish pastry chef Patricio Larrera, a protégé of renowned chef Oriol Balaguer, and inventive Mexican mixologist Pedro Sanchez. Together, the team are delivering an exceptional menu that utilizes fresh, local ingredients and masterful techniques while respecting the elements – fire, earth, air and water – and honoring simplicity. To complement, an inventive mixology program features signature craft cocktails that place emphasis on enjoyment, along with artistry – an approach very much in tune with the Food Comma Hospitality Group mantra.
