Recently opened DÔA has comfortably found its home in Miami Beach (200 Collins Ave.) DÔA, which means “The Door” in Japanese and is pronounced dow-ah, is the latest venture from global renowned restaurateur, Arjun Waney. You might have heard Mr. Waney’s name before since he is also the force behind hot spots Zuma and Coya which have become staples in our foodie community. That said, DÔA is the less pretentious little brother who still cares about excellent food without breaking the bank.
I would admittedly write an 8-page love letter to carbohydrates. My guiltiest of indulgences is food, but my vice is bread. So when Buns & Buns in South Miami opened with rave reviews, I knew going would mean having to be religious about the gym in the days before.
I decided to venture to Buns & Buns for brunch, a meal that I can unapologetically indulge in for a few hours and not feel hurried or rushed. As any proper brunch would, this meal was kick-started by Sangria. We ordered a pitcher of red Sangria and one of White Sangria which was the perfect ying to our yang. Made with seasonal fruit, we snacked on the red and white wine while our delectable dishes arrived at the table.
