Tambourine Room by Tristan Brandt, the new fine dining restaurant by acclaimed chef Tristan Brandt at Carillon Miami Wellness Resort, is being celebrated as one of the best new dining experiences in the city in the 2023 Michelin Guide Florida: February 2023. Hailed by Michelin’s inspectors as an “ambitious dining bijou” delivering “a colorful, multicourse tasting grounded in French cuisine with notable Asian inspiration,” Tambourine Room joins seven other new restaurants pinpointed by the famed guide as “heating up the Miami dining scene.” 

Opened last December just in time to host attendees of Art Basel 2022, Tambourine Room sets a stage for Chef Brandt, Chef de Cuisine Timo Steubing, and Pastry Chef Logan Seibert to keep guests on the edge of their seats in anticipation of palate-pleasing surprises and delights. The menu offers an array of delectable dishes such as Tuna | Jalapeño | Miso, a roasted sesame-marinated tuna tartare delicately placed in a jalapeño and green bell pepper sauce, topped with a warm miso foam. A Chef Brandt signature – beef tartare hidden under a layer of caviar alongside kimizu, whipped crème fraiche, and crispy house-made sourdough chips – also makes its stateside debut on the Tambourine Room menu.   

The 2023 Michelin Guide Florida is not the first to recognize Chef Brandt’s culinary excellence. Chef Brandt, a master in the culinary arts, joined the Carillon Miami Wellness Resort in early 2022, bringing with him a wealth of experience refined in the European restaurant industry, where he garnered numerous awards and accolades. During his tenure as Head Chef at OPUS V in Germany, the restaurant was awarded two Michelin stars, making him the youngest chef in the country to lead a two-star kitchen, and in October 2022, Epoca by Tristan Brandt at the Waldhaus Flims Wellness Resort in Switzerland was awarded one Michelin star.     

Originally opened in 1958, Tambourine Room was a popular spot for cocktails and socializing until more recently being re-energized by Chef Brandt and his creative culinary team. Today it’s a world-class dining destination, as confirmed by Michelin Guide, which teases diners to “expect rich, bold sauces and foams made with the likes of parmesan, lobster and saffron, and ginger turbocharging everything from tomatoes to scallops to wagyu.”   

“From the inception of this restaurant concept, we’ve considered ourselves fortunate to have Chef Brandt leading our new dining experience. Today, we’re thrilled to earn this recognition by 2023 Michelin Guide Florida as a standout establishment in Miami’s vibrant culinary scene,” says Patrick Fernandes, Executive Managing Director of Carillon Miami Wellness Resort. “With a renewed focus on upscale dining here in Miami, Tambourine Room’s long-running culinary experience is shining anew to serve residents and visitors alike.” 

Tambourine Room by Tristan Brandt is open Wednesday through Sunday with two seating options. The first seating at 6 p.m. offers a three-course tasting menu for $140 per person, and the second seating at 8:30 p.m. offers a six-course tasting menu for $215 per person. Both menu prices are not inclusive of tax and gratuity. To fully immerse oneself in the Tambourine Room experience, diners may choose to add a wine pairing for $55 (6 p.m. seating) or $135 (8:30 p.m. seating).
