Kickstarter campaigns are ubiquitous nowadays. Veronica Mars is coming to a theatre near you and entrepreneurs everywhere rejoice that the Internet is making their dreams come true in increments of $5, $25 and $100. But, most importantly, the crowdfunding site is also to thank for Miami’s new bread master, Zak the Baker.
Bryan Canales, Radio Bar
In our innagural Behind the Bar post, we featured Ryan Goodspeed, Beverage Director of The Genuine Hospitality Group. Today, we are highlighting bartender extraordinaire Bryan Canales of Radio Bar in SoFi. His personality is much like what you’ll find at the bar: cool, relaxed, hip and so much fun. He’s a Miami native who has been with the Menin Hospitality group since it acquired Radio Bar, which has fast become a favorite among Miami locals. Read on to learn more about Bryan’s take on the bar scene as a Miami native, and why sharing an Old Fashioned with Abraham Lincoln would be right up his alley.
It’s Fri-day peeps. That means the weekend awaits with food surprises looming in every corner. Can we officially call this the mid point of summer? If so, let’s just remember that all too soon the kids will be back in school and the beach will seem incredibly less attainable. So go out this weekend and make a genuine effort to discover the outdoors (with some inevitable sweat) or just hibernate at your favorite restaurant to indulge in some grub and some AC. Below we leave you with a few fun foodie links from around the web – enjoy!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I am a tapas tyrant traditionalist. I’m willing to admit that I may take my love of tapas to the extreme sometimes, but after having lived in Spain and fallen in love with all things Spanish it’s just a guttural reaction at this point. I’m all for the “small plates” trend, but if you’re gonna call yourself a “tapas” restaurant, you better have your duende on point. Anyway enough with the therapy session, my point with all this is that when I heard this past March that the team behind the extremely popular and super innovative Eating House was going to open a tapas joint in MiMo my brain just about exploded with a plethora of mixed emotions.
Jessica Sanchez, Chef/Owner, LOBA
This week in our Miami Tastemaker series we highlight a restaurateur who’s the mastermind behind the recently opened (last Friday!) MiMo restaurant, LOBA. Jessica Sanchez is the 28 year old who has single-handedly made this restaurant a reality. From designing the logo and menu, to physically ordering décor and hiring the staff in conjunction with the FIU school of Hospitality, Jessica has done it all.
We’re exactly one week away from Fourth of July Friday. A long weekend looms close by and gets us all sorts of giddy. We’re well into summer and life always tends to slow down when the sun sets at 8 o’ clock, the kids are out of school and we spend most of our time outdoors. Summer is just pretty badass. Something else that kicks major butt? Our MMTM Summer Giveaways! Check back on the blog soon as we’ve got some great freebies coming your way. In the meantime, enjoy a few fun foodie links from around the web!
Amongst the hustle and bustle that is Brickell, with its never-ending construction, noise and South American buzz, Red Bar stands quietly and unassumingly across from Mary Brickell Village. If you’re not on the hunt for a great cocktail, you’ll miss it. It’s a very small space with dim lighting that resembles the set of a 1980s party. The whole place brings about a sense of nostalgia to the days of neighborhood bars, were locals ruled and unpretentiousness was a must.
