Shikany Restaurant opening soon!
The neighborhood is very excited to welcome Chef Michael Shikany’s new restaurant to Wynwood. Located at 251 NW 25th st. He has been preparing for the opening since last year, and was supposed to be open in November 2013, but he was waiting on permits from the city, so the anticipation has been building.
The restaurant will serve all types of food and will have a rotating menu, with all the freshest foods from that quarter. The Shikany restaurant will continue the trend of upscale interiors for the neighborhood, such as Joeys, Cafeina, and R House. There are hanging chandeliers on the inside and there will be a smaller more exclusive lounge outside in the back.
Shikany’s passion for cooking came from growing up cooking with his grandfather, and he continued his passion and went to cooking school, after working in other restaurants such as Sushi Samba, in Miami Beach, he finally decided it was time to open his own.
Michael feels that Wynwood is a great place for his restaurant because this neighborhood is up and coming. Everyone seems to see a bright prosperous future for the neighborhood and we feel this restaurant is a great addition to that advancement. He is planing to open the second week of March, and we are excited to try it out!
