A fine dining restaurant that was originally slated to open in Miami Beach this fall will likely get its debut next year.
New York-based Catch Hospitality Group updated its website to notify customers that the company’s seafood restaurant Catch is coming in 2024.
When ready, Catch Miami Beach will open in the city’s affluent South of Fifth neighborhood at 200 South Pointe Drive.
According to the plans revealed in late 2022, the two-floor restaurant will occupy 22,000 square feet and provide an indoor dining space and a retractable roof open-air terrace.
Rockwell Group, a New York-based architecture and planning firm, was said to be handling Catch Miami Beach’s design – a blend of Art Deco and Mediterranean architecture.
Catch Hospitality Group did not respond to requests for comment.
The firm, formerly EMM Group, was founded in 2006 by hospitality entrepreneur Mark Birnbaum and restaurateur Eugene Remm. Catch was established in 2011 with its first location in New York City.
Texas billionaire Tilman Fertitta acquired half ownership of Catch Hospitality Group in 2017. Fertitta is the owner and CEO of Fertitta Entertainment, Inc., which owns the restaurant giant Landry’s, Inc., the Golden Nugget Hotel and Casinos and the Houston Rockets NBA team. The restaurant and entertainment magnate is a partner at Catch Hospitality Group.
“Miami Beach has experienced tremendous growth over the last few years and the city’s evolving dining scene makes it the perfect time to bring our iconic brand to one of the greatest destinations in the world,” Fertitta said in a statement on his personal website.
Catch Hospitality Group operates two restaurant concepts, including Catch, its globally influenced seafood restaurant, and Catch Steak, its upscale steakhouse. Currently, the company has locations in NYC, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Aspen.
The hospitality group’s website says Catch plans to expand in major markets. Miami is the firm’s seventh outpost.
Catch Miami Beach will be located within a retail space that’s next door to the high-end Continuum on South Beach condominium complex.
Black Lion, a Los Angeles-based commercial real estate investment and development firm, purchased the space in 2022 for $11.5 million, according to Traded, a real estate transaction news website.
Catch Hospitality Group signed a 15-year lease with Black Lion. The property was built in 2014.
