Leynia at the Delano is the most casual among the numerous dining establishments that have anchored the iconic hotel in the past. It's an Argentinian grill with a sleek Japanese influence, with many of the tables situated outdoors in the gardens alongside the lengthy grill.

From my article on Leynia in the October issue of Ocean Drive magazine:

Sizzling on the grates of a sizeable grill are thick steaks, whole branzino and red onions fat as softballs. A chorus line of brined organic chickens and house-made sausages dangle from a rod above, slowly absorbing smoke that rises from glowing hickory logs. “It’s like home cooking,” enthuses José Icardi, executive chef of the new Argentinian/Japanese restaurant Leynia, “except at the Delano.”
