Kris Wessel, Chef/Owner of Oolite Restaurant and Bar - Miami Beach - sophisticated yet healthy, gluten free dishes with unprocessed ingredients

Chef Kris Wessel, a 3rd generation Floridian raised in New Orleans, and a renowned  restaurateur in Miami, recently opened Oolite on Miami Beach, off Lincoln Road, next to the Fillmore Theater, and across the street from the Miami Convention Center.  The James Beard nominated chef and his partners have housed  the 284-seat healthy dining restaurant  – Oolite received 3.5 stars in the Miami Herald and raves from – in a Frank Gehry building with an Urban Chic atmosphere,  warm woods, sleek design, a large bar and an adjacent Jazz club.

The focus of the sophisticated global menu is healthy, gluten free, dishes using local and unprocessed ingredients, prepared with time tested approaches to production including slow cooking, poaching, steaming, smoking, grilling, dehydrating and preserving.
