Happy August, foodies! The dog days of summer are officially here, and so is Miami Spice! For the next two months, we’ll all be enjoying prix fixe meals all over town (now including brunch), and specifically here at MMTM Headquarters we’ll be giving you our “takes” on the best menus in the return of our #MiamiSpiceMonday series. But, just because Miami Spice is here, that doesn’t mean there aren’t other great foodie happenings taking place in South Florida. Check out the below for all the new openings, special offerings, and more in our monthly Foodie Friday – Local Edition round-up. Enjoy!

Via Emilia 9 Ristorante Italiano (1120 15th St, Miami Beach) is a charming Italian restaurant on South Beach that offers authentic regional cuisine – all ingredients are imported from Italy with the exception of fruits, vegetables, flour and eggs. This modern, yet rustic and charming place has received notoriety from some of our faves like Anthony Bourdain who said, “the pasta at Via Emilia is much, much better than good.” It’s that kind of testimony that goes a far way in our little foodie book and gets us excited about our growing foodie community in Miami.
