Hemant Mathur brings his Indian cuisine to the Magic City

Long admired Indian chef Hemant Mathur has officially made his way down to the Magic City with the debut of Maska (3252 Northeast 1st Avenue, Suite 109).

The menu at Maska features a mix of traditional Indian fare sprinkled with a mix of more modern dishes. Expect items like the critically acclaimed tandoori lamb chops, duck-filled tacos, curry-topped crab cakes, and array of stuffed breads, an assortment of curries and even a chutney tasting. The 7,000-square-foot restaurant boasts a lounge area, expansive bar, an open kitchen, and a open Tandoor adjacent to a Maska Model Mural on its wall.

Marthur first shot to fame in New York City with his restaurants Devi and Tulsi (that have now since closed), which both received one Michelin star and marked the first time a Indian chef led restaurant in the U.S. had received a Michelin star. He since went to work with an assortment of other acclaimed eateries including Dhaba, Chote Nawab, Chola, Sahib, Malai Marke, and most recently, Saar Indian Bistro.

Maska is now openly for dinner Tuesday to Sunday from 5 to 11 p.m. with lunch and brunch forthcoming. Call 786-971-9100 to make a reservation.
