Uruguyan Parilla Grill
EAST, Miami's Signature Eatery
Quinto La Huella
Introducing the first outpost of Uruguay’s beachfront restaurant, Parador La Huella, as the signature eatery of EAST, Miami. Our urban reinvention, Quinto La Huella, offers a unique fire-cooking method with a wood-fire parrilla centered at the heart of our kitchen and includes a wood fire oven, sushi counter, and outdoor dining experience. Our menu is a blend of carefully planned, but simple dishes made with the best ingredients. Our food is down to earth, much like our atmosphere, creating a relaxing environment where memories are made.
In the kitchen, we didn’t invent anything. We support local farmers, organic and free range products. Our menu is a blend of carefully planned, but simple dishes made with the best ingredients from land and sea.
Growing up in his father's family restaurant in Buenos Aires, Nano Crespo took to the kitchen early, and by age 16 had enrolled in the Culinary Art Institute of Argentina. Crespo found his way to California where he learned not only Italian cuisine, but absorbed an intense farm-to-table value system. Here he honed a rustic, straightforward cooking style, which continues at Quinto La Huella. Crespo's most recent successes include the openings of Soho House's West Hollywood, Toronto, and Chicago locations, where he was responsible for culinary operations and concept development
