Located in Miami’s Brickell neighborhood, Boxpark Miami brings the bustling area a unique dining experience and a menu filled with Florida-centric dishes, house made charcuterie, and local produce. Chat Chow TV sat down with Boxpark’s Executive Chef Matt Hinckley to learn more about his inspiration for the dishes and the restaurant’s out-of-the box (pun intended) offerings.

The menu was created by Hinckley using the knowledge and techniques he learned through his extensive time traveling the globe, as well as his time in some of the best restaurants in South Florida including Michael’s Genuine Food and Drink and Nobu.

“With regard to a lot of the ingredients and the cooking techniques it’s a bit unorthodox,” said Hinckely. “In every kitchen and every place I traveled there’s always something I’d embrace and take with me, and those experience helped put this menu together.”

Boxpark is the first restaurant in Miami that is SPE Certified, and showcases a whole range of interesting dishes featuring rare, hard-to-find proteins. Chicken, as Hinckley notes, is nowhere to be found.

“We only put animals on the menu that I know lived a life that shows respect to the animal and the environment,” said Hinckley.

Vegetarians and vegans fret not, while the menu showcases plenty of meat dishes, it also features a vast selection of well thought out vegan and vegetarian options and makes it a point to cater to the needs of customers living that lifestyle. The dessert menu also echoes this sentiment, with a range of house made sweets that are heart healthy and gluten free.
