Hi, foodies! In the immortal words of Justin Timberlake:
That’s right, we’re almost halfway into 2017 and inching closer and closer towards the quiet (and oppressively hot) Miami summer months. But, that doesn’t mean there’s not plenty of action taking place in our local food scene. Don’t believe it? Well, just check out our monthly news round-up below and see for yourself. Enjoy!
New Year, More Food.
That’s what we’re all about. 2017 is here and “season” in Miami is in full swing, which means lots of new restaurant openings, special offers, and the beginning of an onslaught of foodie events to last all winter long. As is custom, on this first Friday of January and the first Friday of the new year, we’ve compiled a round-up of some of the happenings that will be going on around town this month. Enjoy!

A few weeks ago, I was invited to try Chef Andy Bates’ latest pop-up concept of his British restaurant, The Avenue, in the heart of Wynwood at Miam Cafe. You might know Chef Bates of local notoriety after winning the local competition, “The Search for Miami’s Next Great Restaurant Concept.” Although plans have slightly changed for Chef Bates, the one thing that still remains strong is his love of British food and his intention of sharing it with the Miami foodie community.
