About the restaurant
Born in the heart of Brickell, 1111 is a neighborhood bistro representing international Peruvian fusion.Through exceptional care in selecting and handling fresh ingredients, and in employing our precise culinary techniques, we create surprising dishes—easy to understand, yet very distinguished in their flavors.
The project started when Martin Monteverde and Diego Muñoz studied together as children in Lima, Peru. Martin moved to Miami with his family in 1986, and studied at Florida International University’s Chaplin School of Hospitality and Restaurant Management. He went on to open two successful Miami restaurants: Sole and Mixt. Meanwhile, Diego was working to become one of the best professional chefs in the world, having gained experience and recognition in renowned restaurants such as Spain’s El Bulli and Mugaritz, Grand Vefour in Paris, Bilson’s in Sydney, and Astrid y Gastón in Lima. In 2012, Martin and Diego reconnected; two years later they set out to find the ideal setting for what would be 1111 Peruvian Bistro. Today, Martin is in charge of managing the direct operations of the restaurant, while Chef Diego travels the globe searching for new ideas, ingredients, and flavors to continue bringing our kitchen fresh inspirations. Rather than fine dining, 1111 offers something perhaps even more enjoyable: fine food in a comfortable, more casual atmosphere. We will continually refresh our menu with seasonal discoveries, and give a distinctly Peruvian twist to every elaboration.
1111 Peruvian Bistro is located at the Axis building in Brickell, directly south of the financial district.It features both an indoor dining area and an outdoor terrace with table seating and a comfortable lounge. The dining room offers a view of our open kitchen, where highly trained, professional cooks precisely execute our creations. The casual décor and modern music create a very comfortable atmosphere. On the wall above the kitchen, a painting by Alejandro Jaime relates the professional journey of Chef Diego Muñoz, from his origins in Ottawa, Canada to his arrival at 1111 in Miami. The bar is part of our dining room, inviting you to enjoy wines by the glass or a cold glass of beer before sitting down to a good meal. The lounge in our terrace is also an excellent place to relax and enjoy the music while savoring some of our draft beers or selected wines.
