Ariete Hospitality Group’s (AHG) commitment goes beyond excellence in food, beverage and hospitality. With every concept we open — indeed, with every dish, with every drink, with every experience we make — we’re committed to raising the bar for dining in Miami and proving to the world that our city is capable of world-class dining experiences.
The heart of our team is Executive Chef & Owner Michael Beltrán, a hometown kid from Little Havana who went on to work under Miami culinary legends before opening AHG’s flagship, Ariete. Chef Beltran’s, twice named a semifinalist for the James Beard Award for Best Chef: South, and 2021 StarChefs Rising Star, AHG’s Ariete is now honored with a 2022 MICHELIN guide star. Chug’s Diner, Chef Beltran’s take on a Cuban – American diner, is also honored with a 2022 MICHELIN guide Bib Gourmand. For Chef Beltran and the team who have bought into our vision for ourselves and Miami, this business is personal.
That deep drive is expressed in a portfolio that includes some of South Florida’s favorite and most celebrated concepts. Having planted our flag and set the tone with Ariete in Coconut Grove, AHG has helped fuel the city’s re-emergence as a culinary hotbed. Whether in fine dining, cocktails, cigars, indulgent desserts or comfort food, AHG concepts marry local ingredients and culture with high-level technique and top-tier service, making each of our concepts a local’s neighborhood mainstay and a traveler’s must-stop destination.
