Trust is not something that is easily handed out. It must be earned over time; through actions, not words. In the restaurant business, this couldn’t be more true. And when a new one comes to town (especially when that town is Coral Gables) brazenly throwing the word in your face, you better believe that earning the trust of the masses is no easy task. After a recent visit to Trust & Co., we have reason to believe this place just might be on to something. Here are the top five why we trust in Trust & Co.
In MMTM’s three years of blog-istence, we’ve had three very different experiences as it relates to the South Beach Wine & Food Festival. It’s one of the most exciting times of year in Miami (for us foodies, anyway) and we love that we’ve been able to have had such different takes on it so far. Our first year was all about seeing our favorite Food Network Stars and making the most of discounted tickets and free events. Year two was more about highlighting the local chefs and restaurants we’d come to love and getting into as many events as possible. And this year, our third time around, was about seeing a different side of SOBEWFF, not biting off more than we could chew, and maybe, just maybe, learn a thing or two.
Brunch is a recipe for indulgence. First, combine the best of breakfast and lunch to make one super meal out of two. Second, gather family and/or friends for one last hurrah before the work week starts again. And, third, add in a few cocktails to get your Sunday Funday vibes flowing. The newly launched brunch at The Local Craft Food & Drink follows that recipe to a T, serving up one of the best (and booziest) brunches that Miami has to offer.
It’s hard to believe that it’s already time for our final blog post of the year. We’ve officially made it to the end of 2015 and what a year it’s been! In our second year of blogging we dined and drank our way across Miami, making lots of new #foodiefriends along the way. As excited as we are for what 2016 has in store for us, we thought we should take one final look back at the foodie year that was 2015. Enjoy!
I’ve been a fan of Uvaggio since it first opened on Miracle Mile about a year ago. I love the small feel, the bright and warm ambience, the live music trickling in from the sidewalk, and the extensive and interesting wine list. That said, I’ve only really visited a handful of times and those visits have usually been on the shorter side; more drinks with friends or night caps than a full dining experience.
Sabores by Chef James is one of Miami’s best kept secrets. Despite being spearheaded by one of the Latin world’s most popular and hardest-working chefs (Chef James Tahhan is a regular co-host on Telemundo’s Un Nuevo Día morning show, a chef/partner at Brickell’s Perfecto Gastrobar, and the mastermind behind a budding online culinary empire), Sabores continues to fly under the radar, serving up some of the best and most refined Latin food in town.
The Wynwood Arts District just got a little artsier with the arrival of the new GK Bistronomie. GKB is bringing food art to the neighborhood best known for its street art, offering visitors something to admire on the plate and savor on the palate.
GKB is a Peruvian-inspired restaurant with flares of Asian and other Latin cuisines. Helmed by acclaimed chef/owner and Peru native, Rafael Perez, the restaurant and bar has been making an impact during its first few weeks on the scene, providing the area with a much-needed, elevated dining establishment.
It’s kind of fitting to be writing this review during Halloween week, the one time of the year that Americans collectively come together to keep dentists in business for another year. As a thirty-something adult, I can’t really get away with trick-or-treating anymore, and I have to limit my partying to those really important dates (birthdays or bust), but there are times when it’s fun to just throw caution to the wind and feel like a kid again.
When you think of countries with long, storied beer traditions, names like Germany, Belgium, and the U.S. come to mind. While Spain doesn’t usually make that list, trust me when I tell you there’s nothing like a cold beer paired with some tapas to cool down on a hot summer day in Andalucía. When I studied in Spain I was obsessed with Cervezas Alhambra, the very first brewery in the city of Granada that dates back to 1925.
