Food & Drink

Conceived by the visionary creators of Mandolin Aegean Bistro, The Drexel emerges as a chic, yet charmingly intimate, contemporary Mediterranean dining experience nestled in the heart of Miami Beach. This establishment, which pays homage to its namesake iconic street, occupies a prime position on the corner of a historically significant village from the 1920s, offering guests an enchanting journey back to the golden age of Miami Beach.

At the helm of The Drexel's culinary adventures is Chef Nano Crespo, who infuses the menu with his distinctive approach to cooking that is both rustic and uncomplicated. The Drexel prides itself on serving up a symphony of clean, bold flavors emanating from its charcoal grill and wood-fired oven. The carefully crafted menu features an array of house-made pastas and pizzas, with a particular focus on locally sourced seafood, complemented by a generous selection of vegetable-centric dishes. Additionally, The Drexel boasts a thoughtfully selected wine list that showcases boutique vintages from the vineyards of Greece, France, Spain, and Italy, alongside a cocktail menu designed to delight connoisseurs with offerings such as the signature Drexel Margarita. This concoction, a blend of sotol, house-infused organic agave with fresh citrus, crowned with a toasted coconut salt rim, is an invitation to indulge in the essence of coastal relaxation.

Welcoming guests for dinner every evening, The Drexel operates during the summer months from Monday to Saturday, between 6:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m., and on Sundays from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Patrons are encouraged to visit the restaurant's website for the most current information regarding seasonal operating hours.
