MMTM’s Best of 2016!

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.

In any case, my latest #MMTM assignment forced me to cross the bridge and boy was it worth it…I fell in love. Her name’s Izzy. Izzy’s Fish & Oyster to be exact. After Mitch’s first visit for brunch after their grand opening, it was my turn to visit to see what was going on a year later.

Pizza & Burger Does a Body Good

By Monique Gonzalez

My first official gig as an #MMTM contributor (sounds fancy, huh?) was nothing short of spectacular. Thanks to my pals, Mitch & Mel, who know me so well, they sent me on a foodie adventure made up of a few of my favorite things – burgers, pizza and cocktails (oh my!). Yes, perfect for that oh-so-hot summer bikini bod, you say? Maybe, maybe not. But that’s never stopped me before. So, I was beyond thrilled to learn I’d be experiencing Pizza & Burger – Michael’s Backyard Kitchen, the new savory summer pop-up from nationally acclaimed star chef Michael Mina.
