Chowdown Grill, From The Ground Up

It sounds like Chowdown Grill, the forthcoming restaurant in Surfside whose progress you can track on Facebook, will be continuing the new wave of chef-owned and PR-lite eateries (see, e.g., NAOE and Sakaya Kitchen) where the food speaks for itself.  It has all of the hallmarks of a cool neighborhood spot (including an accomplished chef).  Aside from one cryptic message that may or may not be the start of a gang war with Sakaya, I’m very much looking forward to Chowdown’s debut.

The chef/owner is a guy named Joshua Marcus, former executive sous chef at BLT Steak.  He gave some more info to Eater Miami (the pictures are pre-demolition).  The concept is Chinese with an emphasis on fresh and local.  And Surfside could probably use some new blood.  The buzzards have been circling.
