Chef Eileen Andrade - Guest Chef

Voted Best Luxury Hotel in the Caribbean TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Awards

Eileen Andrade, a renowned Miami chef, traces her culinary roots to Islas Canarias, her family's iconic Cuban restaurant. From a young age, she immersed herself in the kitchen, cultivating a passion for gastronomy. Venturing out with her brother, she launched the ‘Cuban Cube truck, a mobile culinary school that gained rapid popularity.

A transformative trip to South Korea in 2013 exposed Andrade to new flavors, reshaping her approach to cooking. This journey laid the foundation for her restaurant, Finka Table & Tap, which opened in 2014, blending Korean and Cuban influences. The restaurant quickly became a hit, marking the beginning of Andrade's ascent in Miami's culinary scene.

In 2017, Andrade introduced Amelia's 1931, a cozy diner paying homage to her grandmother. Media acclaim prompted further expansion, leading to Barbakoa by Finka in Doral, blending Cuban, Korean, and Peruvian cuisines.

In 2023, Andrade transformed Amelia's 1931, expanding its footprint and reinventing its concept. The redesigned space, with a speakeasy vibe and chic aesthetic, features a new menu and signature cocktails. The restaurant's success reinforces Andrade's status as a rising star in Miami's culinary landscape.

Reflecting on her journey, Andrade expresses gratitude for her family and team. Her commitment to making hearts smile through hospitality remains steadfast as she eagerly anticipates the future.
