Pizza Party

By Mitchell Nover

I know that May is National Hamburger Month and National BBQ Month, but artificial foodie holidays be damned… I’m in the mood for pizza! So, when it comes to pizza, we all know that Miami is not New York, and that’s perfectly fine. I get it, people looooove NY pizza. There’s something in the water, yada yada yada. But, how about a little diversity, foks? I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, that’s what makes Miami’s food scene so great: diversity in food. Including, you guessed it, pizza. That’s why I’ve but together a quick round-up of some of my recent Miami favorites – from a classic Cuban pizza joint to a a couple of new Neapolitan outposts to, yes, a NYC-style hipster hangout. Bet you can’t get that combo in the Five Boroughs, can you?

The Avenue – A British Love Affair

By Melanie Galarce

A few weeks ago, I was invited to try Chef Andy Bates’ latest pop-up concept of his British restaurant, The Avenuein 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.

A Fowl Feast in Wynwood

As we all know by now, Miami has been really coming into its own over the past few years, with a community that is coming together more and more over a collective love and desire for cultural and culinary creativity. On the food front we’ve seen a new crop of restaurants opening up, concepts are highlighting local ingredients and flavors, and our food festivals are focusing less on celebrity and more on local talent. Leading that charge for years now, has been Chef Jeremiah Bullfrog, chef/owner of gastroPod Miami and creator of the popular PIG (Pork is Good) events that for the past six years has brought together some of Miami’s most exciting chefs to showcase the power of the mighty pig. But now, he’s set his sights on a different protein: fowl. And, this past Saturday this group of hungry gourmands gathered together for a delicious game of Duck Duck Goose in Wynwood.

Wynwood Yard Brings Culture & Food to Miami

Long are the days in Miami where anywhere ‘cool’ entailed an over-the-top experience with hefty price tags and pretentious stares. Slowly, but surely, our city has achieved a personality that goes beyond the tourism and ambition that infiltrate South Beach. We can know stand strong on the map of major cities in America with a bit of culture and substance. I attribute much of that growth to neighborhoods like Wynwood.

#MiamiSpiceMonday – Alter

This edition of #MiamiSpiceMonday is a special one. It’s not only our last Miami Spice review since the season comes to an end, but we’ll also be sharing a lunch experience rather than the dinner journeys we’ve been telling you about for the last two months.

This review takes us to heart of Wynwood and a 65-seat restaurant by the audacious name of Alter. It’s the brainchild of Chef Brad Kilgore, who sports an impressive resume that includes gigs at J&G Grill at Bal Harbour and Azul.
