Marcus Samuelsson is a chef with a full resume. From being the youngest person to receive a three-star review from The New York Times to being crowned champion of Top Chef Masters and Chopped All-Stars, he is a celebrity chef in every right. But what separates him from many other celebrity chefs is that his accolades come from serving comfort food from his roots. His brand-new Red Rooster Overtown in Miami pays homage to both his background and that of the multicultural neighborhood of the restaurant.

Red Rooster Overtown was originally supposed to open last March but was delayed due to the pandemic. However, when it was nearly complete, the team decided to team up with José Andrés’ World Central Kitchen and Food Rescue US to offer meals to anyone in need rather than rushing to open. They created meals for those affected by the pandemic three days a week from the restaurant.

The space finally debuted as Red Rooster Overtown this past December. Samuelsson set out to not only bring his signature Harlem dishes to Miami, but to also incorporate the flavors of the Overtown neighborhood. You’ll see his famous hot honey fried chicken and the quintessential “Obama short ribs” on the menu, but you will also find additions like ceviche, grilled fish, and conch fritters inspired by the Latin and Caribbean flavors of Miami.
