A Journey Through Flames

Dine, Miami

“Miami’s sizzling-hot Argentine grill” is what Forbes Travel Guide calls Los Fuegos, Faena Miami Beach’s signature restaurant from top chef Francis Mallmann.



At Los Fuegos, dining is an experience that transcends mere sustenance. It’s a journey through flames, rooted in Mallmann’s deep-seated passion for live-fire cooking. Los Fuegos stands as a vibrant testament to the rich heritage of Argentine cuisine, particularly the time-honored tradition of the asado, or wood-fired barbecue.

In a nod to the rising trend of vegetarianism, Mallmann recently published his plant-based cookbook, “Green Fire.” A selection of dishes inspired by his recipes can be found on the menu, including wood-fired artichokes with sesame yogurt; butternut squash drizzled with chermoula sauce and pistachio crumble; beets carpaccio cooked in embers; wild mushrooms with roasted garlic cream and egg yolk; and crispy Brussels sprouts with pecorino cheese and anchovies.

For the carnivores and pescatarians, there’s plenty to make your mouth water—namely the wood-oven empanadas bursting with flavor, succulent skirt steak, or prime rib-eye a la parrilla. An array of local fresh options cooked over an open flame include whole Mediterranean branzino with fennel and lemon, as well as snapper ceviche bathed in lime leche de tigre with sweet potato purée.

Every Sunday, Los Fuegos hosts an authentic asado where guests can share a wood-fired mixed parrillada piled high with skirt steak, prime ribeye steak, chorizo, morcilla, branzino, snapper, prawns, domino potatoes, and roasted sweet potatoes. Live music and a laid-back atmosphere make Los Fuegos the perfect way to spend a sunny afternoon with family and friends.
