Mr. Right
An Oceanfront Temple of Burgers and Beer

It happens all the time.

There you are, on the beach in Bal Harbour, recovering from an epic wakeboarding marathon with Russian billionaires when it hits you.

Burgers. Fried pickles. Beer.

Now.

Introducing Mister Collins, an oceanfront temple of comfort food and craft beers, now soft-open at the tony One Bal Harbour hotel before its official opening in three weeks.

You’ll recall this used to be a hushed fine-dining spot. But the new team has lightened things up a bit with hardwood floors and whitewashed walls. And they’ve kept the basic feel of the cruise-ship-like dining room: the floor-to-ceiling windows framing views of the Atlantic, the deep leather chairs, the abundance of shrimp cocktail.

But on breezy nights, you’ll want to start on the waterfront patio (also called the View Bar, for obvious reasons) overlooking speedboats power through the Haulover inlet. Start off with a round of $5 pints of Fort Lauderdale’s Native Lager (Dale’s Pale Ale is also on draft) and work your way through gussied-up American classics like the #1 Ahi Burger made with nori mayo. Your pairing: sides of fried pickles and mac and cheese upgraded with jumbo lump crab.

When in doubt, always upgrade.
