Pacific Time

A Fond Farewell to the Former Cornerstone of Lincoln Road

Lincoln Road became the trend-setting street it is today in 1960, when the city commissioned architect Morris Lapidus to redesign it. After closing the road to traffic, Lapidus transformed it with his MIMO ("Miami Modern") brand of architecture, notable for its use of lush tropical gardens, fountains, shelters and even an amphitheater as city dressings. Thus marked the birth of one of the nation's first-and most popular-pedestrian malls.

Lincoln Road experienced yet another resurgence in the late 1980s, along with Ocean Drive, and is once again the spot to both see and be seen in Miami's South Beach. Anchoring the new Lincoln Road is a series of modish eateries, which used to include Pacific Time. Chef/Owner Jonathan Eismann created this casual, chic and upbeat restaurant, and had been making the stretch of Lincoln Road between Jefferson and Michigan his own since 1993 until 2007, when Pacific Time, unfortunately, closed.

Eismann began his professional career in the early 1980s, focusing on Pan-Asian flavors in restaurants such as China Grill. One of the first chefs to receive the Robert Mondavi award of culinary excellence-which he earned in 1994-Eismann continued to focus on Pan-Asian flavors during his long tenure at Pacific Time, with a series of seafood specialties that he expertly prepared at with the very able assistance of Sous Chef Ervin Bryant.

Here's a fond farewell to one of South Beach's most esteemed restaurants. Please read on if you'd like to see what Pacific Time once was; after all, just because it's gone doesn't mean you have to miss out on the experience.
