I’m all for the thought that Mexican food should be affordable and not fussed up. Don’t take this the wrong way, I’m in no way saying that it’s a cuisine that is not deserving of utmost care and sophistication. It’s honestly one of my favorite cuisines in the world, but it is hard to justify paying quite a penny for what is normally more affordable. Cantina La Veinte (495 Brickell Ave, Miami) has the idea of upscale Mexican down pact, providing diners with an elegant ambiance while maintaining the integrity of the food. Walking in, you get a feeling of grandiosity while perusing the decor. This place is downright gorgeous. When you add the mariachis, margaritas, and beautiful Brickell waterfront views, you’re in for a treat.
Hi foodies, October is here! And what a relief it is to be done with September… This last month was a tough one, what with Hurricane Irma and its effects here in South Florida, in the Keys, and across the state. Not to mention the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, where many of our friends and family live, and the earthquake in Mexico, which also touched many of our loved ones. That said, we’re moving forward, onwards, and upwards, and there’s a lot to be thankful and look forward to. An extension of Miami Spice through the end of October, for one. There’s a lot going on this month in Miami, including a number of ways our foodie community is coming together to help those still in need. For all that and more, check out our monthly round-up of local foodie news below. Enjoy!
