What is underneath the Fontainebleau
Tucked away below the Fontainebleau Miami Beach is such a thing called “BleauFish,” also known as “water world.” The idea behind BleauFish is to provide consumers that frequent the nine Fontainebleau restaurants with fresh fish by utilizing their ocean to table live catch program. The hotel hosts about six tanks with variety of fish including lobsters and crabs.
The concept behind the program is to keep the fish stress-free, which allows them to be tastier at consumption. The spiny lobsters are kept at a cool temperature of 70 degrees because that’s what they like according to Executive Chef Thomas Connell. These 300-gallon tanks are quite the delight to see and not everyone gets to request a tour. They save the experience for VIPs or Event Coordinators who will be booking the ballrooms for large-scale events.
