Lox at Café Bergson
The new exhibit, “Courage to Act: Rescue in Denmark” at the Museum of Jewish Heritage about how most of Denmark’s Jews were saved during the Holocaust, has inspired David Teyf, the chef of the museum’s cafe, to add several Danish items to his menu. There are three herrings on a plate, a lox crepe cake, herring salad, several open-faced sandwiches and an apple cake.

Defined as coastal Italian, the chef Michael White’s latest restaurant, to open Oct. 24, is in the Fontainebleau, an imposing hotel that has defined Miami Beach for decades. It will be in the Sorrento Tower, a separate building on the Fontainebleau campus, in the space that previously housed Scarpetta. The menu will feature seafood but not exclusively, Mr. White said. In Miami he’s no longer involved with the Surf Club, and at the moment he’s not cooking in New York, with his gig at the Lambs Club now over. But next summer he expects to open Santi, an Italian fine-dining restaurant that will move into the space that at one time housed his Alto; it will be a partnership with Tishman Speyer, which owns the building. Ingredient-driven, finely detailed food inspired by his career over the years is how he’s conceiving the menu. There will be no tablecloths, for what he’s defining as “truffles and blue jeans.”
