Whether you think it’s just the latest fad or have enjoyed the benefits of adapting to a vegan diet, the trend of more and more restaurants offering vegan-friendly choices can’t be negated. Even still, such offerings, at best, are limited to just a handful of options. That’s when Soul Tavern (1801 West Ave, Miami Beach) comes to save the day with an incredibly robust and refreshing vegetarian and plant-based menu available for brunch, lunch, and dinner.
On a Monday night not too long ago, our #foodiefriend Sara invited us to Café des Arts in South Beach. We didn’t know much about what to expect, but what we did know was that a truffle dinner had been prepped to welcome us. That was reason enough to get us uber excited.
Café des Arts is a concept started by Pierre-Antoine Navarro and his partner Philippe Carteau who together have opened restaurants all over France. The restaurant has a lush, cool patio where we dined on a perfectly crisp February night. Inside, you’ll find progressive art with graffiti of iconic names like Albert Einstein and one of my fashion heroes, Bridget Bardot. We were totally smitten upon arrival but it wasn’t really until we sat down for dinner that our bellies fell head over heels in love.
