When I first walked into Palm Court’s newest restaurant (or dare I say music lounge?), Estefan Kitchen, the first thought that came to mind was that it was every bit “Miami.” Strewn throughout its interior, there were sparkling white pillars, deep blue and purple mood lighting, a live pianist, waiters buzzing by in head-to-toe white, a singer performing the classics from inside the indoor-outdoor bar, and of course, Miami’s finest foodies wining and dining. It may have been lunchtime on a weekday, but from inside Estefan Kitchen, you would have thought it was a Saturday night. And to match these see-and-be-seen vibes, the food, a menu of fine Cuban cuisine, was as tasty as it was beautifully presented. After the first few bites, it became wildly apparent that this “very Miami” spot was a very nice, lasting addition to the Design District, and it was one created by none other than superstar duo-turned-hospitality vets, Gloria and Emilio Estefan.
