We’re officially in to Week 2 of 2017, but we’re not quite ready to say goodbye to 2016 just yet and are taking one final chance to reminisce about our “Year in Food” in 2016. In looking back at some of our best bites (and sips) across Miami this past year we’re adding in a few more opinions this time around, with some favorites from our new contributing writers as well. 2016 was a great year of growth for us here at MMTM Headquarters and we couldn’t have done it without them. We’re excited to let you get to know them even better in the year to come. And, of course, we couldn’t do any of this without you… Thanks, as always, for following along on our foodie adventures.
Wow, is it hot outside or is it just us? Summer has arrived in full force and you know what that means…backyard BBQs, poolside fetes, boat bashes, or lots and lots of indoor eating and drinking with the A/C on blast. However you decide to escape the heat, the Miami food scene’s got you covered from new restaurants and pop-ups to refreshing cocktails and National Ice Cream Month specials. Check out our round-up below to see what whets your appetite. Enjoy!

I tend to have a nostalgic gravitational pull towards all speakeasy bars. I’m not sure if it’s the allure of finding the hidden gems or maybe the thrill of the concept’s origin during prohibition that appeals to me. In either case, the team behind Coconut Grove’s widely popular Ariete, have a new hit on their hands with Baby Jane, which stands in the midst of the growing Brickell landscape.
They say that April showers bring May flowers and Miami food lovers are set to get a drenching based on all of the restaurant openings, new offerings, special menus, and foodie events that our city’s culinary elite have in store for us. By the looks of it, we’ll all be sprouting burger, pizza, and taco shaped flowers by the time May comes around. So, get your slickers ready and check out this month’s forecast of news and happenings below. Enjoy!
