Foodie friends, can you believe we’re already 25% in to 2017??? The first few months of the year are always a whirlwind around here with food festivals and restaurant openings, and a ton of special foodie events. While not letting up completely, things are starting to slow down a little bit as we start to approach the summer months and we’re happy to bet getting a little bit of a reprieve. That said, there’s still plenty to see and do, eat and drink this month. Below is our regular round-up of the best of the Miami food scene this month. Enjoy!
By Melanie Galarce
Olla Miami (South Beach 1233 Lincoln Road), a new Mexican joint started by Scott Linquist, the mastermind behind the incredibly popular Coyo Taco in Wynwood and Brickell is open for business. The restaurant gets its name from clay pots used to serve family style dishes. Yes, similar to the ollas Abuela and Mami still use to cook.
Guys, it’s November! We can hardly believe that we’re fully in the throes of #HalloThanksMas, but such is life. This is a pretty intense month for us at MMTM Headquarters with Mel furiously prepping for The Latin GRAMMYs show in Las Vegas on November 17th and Mitch recovering from his brother’s wedding last weekend and heading out on the road for a few work trips as well. While we may not be around much, there’s actually so much taking place that we’ve separated out a special Thanksgiving round-up that we’ll have for you next Wednesday. In the meantime, here’s our round-up some of the best foodie events taking place this month. Enjoy!
Happy May! Can you freaking believe it’s already May??? As summer quickly approaches and the tourists abandon the heat and humidity of Miami, there’s still lots of local foodie options for us non-Snow Birds. We’ve already given you our 10 Mother’s Day dining picks for this year (P.S. it’s this Sunday, stop procrastinating already!), but today we leave you with a round-up of even more gastronomic goings on for the rest of this month. Enjoy!
