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!
You guys, where has the time gone? June is here and so is the sweltering heat and humidity that accompanies the summer months in Miami. Good thing for us, there’s plenty of foodie fun to partake in – mostly in the comfy confines of the air conditioned indoors. On that note, check out our round-up below for the best of the Miami food scene this month. Enjoy!

Jack’s Miami (2426 NE 2nd Avenue) is a new homestyle Italian restaurant…and not just because it’s in a refurbished house. Inspired by traditional Sunday dinners, Jack’s features home style Italian cooking and a throwback to that classic “red sauce” style of Italian-American cuisine that has been replaced by more modern interpretations in recent years.
Miami’s top bars and restaurants are ready to raise a glass to 2017 with prix-fixe dinner specials, festive celebrations, and midnight toasts to celebrate the New Year. Join in the decadent celebration, and check out our top picks for where to eat (and drink) out on New Year’s Eve in the Magic City. Advance reservations are strongly encouraged as the city’s top tables will book up fast. Unless you’ve already got plans to hang out with Justin Bieber…
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!
