Salvaje, a restaurant with locations in Spain, Panama, and Colombia, opens its doors today on the rooftop of Hyde Midtown Miami. Led by chef Fermín Azkue, the kitchen offers a menu of Japanese-fusion dishes.
Using imported ingredients, Salvaje — the name is Spanish for “wild” — serves dishes like grilled and teriyaki-glazed lamb shank, tandoori chicken on a stick, and truffle fried rice with roasted duck.

Azkue, who was born in Venezuela, worked in restaurants in Spain, France, and England, including Michelin-starred
