Fall Epicurean Expedition to Great Miami Restaurants

October 16, 2013

Update: There is a hint of a chill in the air which seems to bring the Epicurean faithful out in force, so our fall game plan takes you from a sexy pool party on Saturdays to nights of haute electronic beats with Michael Wood, Luciano and DJ Jarell. Splash down at De Rod's pool party at the Bentley Beach Club or celebrate the second anniversary of chef Scott Conant's Scarpetta restaurant with one of the hottest wine-paired meal deals in the Fontainebleau Resort's history! Here are the restaurants for upcoming Epicurean Expeditions. Checkout a full list of top Miami restaurants here.... Continue Reading »

 

Our New Spring South Beach Expedition

March 12, 2013

Update: Our Spring expedition includes some of the finest South Beach restaurants and clubs in town...

For Brunch...
Hakkasan / 4441 Collins Avenue / Dim sum may be a tough sell in the early morning hours when coffee and cake seems best suited to early risers, but tender Chinese dumplings, tea-smoked meats and stir-fried beans make a mighty fine brunch after noon at the Fontainebleau's elegant eatery where the Miami Spice menu offers a belly full of the restaurants best bites for a very reasonable $22 per person.

Our September Miami Beach Expedition

September 6, 2012

Update: Our September Epicurean Expedition includes a few of our favorite places in Miami Beach offering generous menus at reasonable prices.

Breakfast
11 Street Diner, 1065 Washington Avenue. While Guy Fieri may have hit a niche somewhere between "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" (this is a funky dive-y diner), there are so few spots where the 24 hour dining experience is so vividly captured than this steel dining car transplanted to South Beach from Jersey and making a scene day and night on South Beach. Grab a stool, a short stack and watch what happens!

Afternoon Action
Bernie's L.A. Cafe, 1570 Alton Road. One of the biggest splashes of Summer 2010 (especially at SB-USA headquarters) is the launch of Bernie Matz's casual new cafe on the west side of South Beach where the tacos, fajitas and daily specials rock our world. Bernie's Books & Books fans should dash from the relative doldrums of Lincoln Road Mall to this tiny but mighty good spot ASAP!

Brunch
La Marea, 1220 Ocean Drive. Experience the "Lazy Breakfast" menu which is served daily until 2pm for folks who need a little extra time to get things going in the morning. Chef Gonzalo Rivera invites you to dine on the patio overlooking Ocean Drive ... Continue Reading »

Nightlife
Louis Bar-Lounge at The Perry South Beach hotel on Collins Avenue lit up the South Beach sky with a closing party for Louis Lounge which will be renovating ... Continue Reading »
