Those familiar with the pre-2014 iteration of Shooters Waterfront (3033 NE 32nd Ave, Fort Lauderdale) remember the concept as one of bikini-clad parties, lots of alcohol, and somewhat sub-par bar food. While a concept such as that one is always fun (who in South Florida doesn’t love beach-themed parties?!), quality of the menu tends to suffer, as most creative resources are allocated to making sure people are having fun. February 2014, the more mature Shooters Waterfront opened under new ownership and renovations. Along with some stunning visual changes, the menu became more refined and upscale. It was quite the drive for me coming from Miami, but I was delightfully surprised with what I sampled.
Welcome to September, foodies! As we inch closer and closer to the gluttony of the holiday season, here in Miami we’re still celebrating our favorite local foodie holiday — Miami Spice.

…and just like that it’s June. Summer is unofficially here, but don’t tell that to our thermometers.

To that end, we’ve once again curated a list of some of the top new restaurants, special menus, seasonal offerings, and foodie events to try this month – catered for us lovers of heat, humidity, and all things Miami.
