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.
Everybody loves PK Banks. He moved to Miami from NYC almost 2 years ago, leaving behind the world of investment banking to start Meme Menu, a restaurant discovery app and restaurant mobile publishing platform that uses the power of images and curated content to make dining decisions easy.
Disclaimer: Mel and I are both unabashed LOBA Lovers. Chef/Owner Jessica Sanchez is our friend. On the blog, we’ve posted a Q&A, included LOBA in round-up posts, and done reader giveaways. However we’ve been a little reticent about writing an actual review of the restaurant because god forbid something should go wrong. Well, I’m happy to report that after a recent brunch trip any fears have been allayed and my LOBA experience was nothing short of beastly.
Are you “hungry like the wolf?” What about the she-wolf? LOBA’s head she-wolf, Jessica Sanchez, and her team of Lobavores have been wowing diners since opening in MiMo a few months ago and has partnered with MMTM to offer you the exclusive chance to win a taste of her new Gastropub hotspot!

This week in our Miami Tastemaker series we highlight a restaurateur who’s the mastermind behind the recently opened (last Friday!) MiMo restaurant, LOBA. Jessica Sanchez is the 28 year old who has single-handedly made this restaurant a reality. From designing the logo and menu, to physically ordering décor and hiring the staff in conjunction with the FIU school of Hospitality, Jessica has done it all.
