Pubbelly. The name alone evokes feelings of a well-established brand that has been a forerunner of the Miami culinary scene since 2010. We’re all familiar with the original location on Sunset Harbour, but now the Pubbelly name has begun to expand into bigger horizons. One of the brand’s newest ventures is one aboard a cruise ship; the Norwegian Escape to be exact.

Brunch is a recipe for indulgence. First, combine the best of breakfast and lunch to make one super meal out of two. Second, gather family and/or friends for one last hurrah before the work week starts again. And, third, add in a few cocktails to get your Sunday Funday vibes flowing. The newly launched brunch at The Local Craft Food & Drink follows that recipe to a T, serving up one of the best (and booziest) brunches that Miami has to offer.
It’s hard to believe that it’s already time for our final blog post of the year. We’ve officially made it to the end of 2015 and what a year it’s been! In our second year of blogging we dined and drank our way across Miami, making lots of new #foodiefriends along the way. As excited as we are for what 2016 has in store for us, we thought we should take one final look back at the foodie year that was 2015. Enjoy!
At the beginning of the year, we set out on a mission to introduce you to some of the food bloggers/writers/lovers that we’ve been lucky enough to meet at different restaurant tastings and food-related events around town. After months of bringing you insights into the origins of their foodie favorites and fanaticism, we realized that we haven’t really given you the opportunity to get to know us like you’ve gotten to know them. So, for our final #foodiefriends post of the year, we bring you Mitch & Mel: #BFFs (Best Foodie Friends).

Not-so-Breaking News: Peruvian food is delicious and it’s taking over the Miami food scene. Just this week, Melanie told us about brunch at Divino Ceviche. And over the past two years, we’ve featured more than our fair share of Peruvian restaurants – from the old standards like Sabor a Peru to the newer GK Bistronomie. Well, there’s another new kid on the block with the arrival of Pisco y Nazca at the Palms at Town & Country in Kendall.
