Ashley Cesario's Bio
Ashley Cesario has set the stage at the entrance of Seawell where the marine life takes on a whimsical approach within the confines of the hotel, connecting hotel guests and restaurant goers to the beautiful hotel aesthetic laced with sea around them. Just as the hotel pays homage to Miami’s historic art Deco design, Ashley created a sense of sea creature exclusivity for Seawell, reminiscent of the modern chic 1930s historic Art Deco building. The transitional hierarchy of the “art of the entrance” in Miami is portrayed within these characters. This playful air of sophistication permits you to seamlessly transition into the wonderful world of hospitality within the walls of the restaurant. As you journey through you can’t help but be captivated by the offering of wine and fair as artistically depicted with the characters. At Seawell you’ll feel its “all hands on deck” to make you feel at home.
