The Anderson Launches New Menu

As if anyone needed a reason to head to The Anderson this week…the 80’s-inspired watering hole – known and loved for its crafty, booze-driven cocktails and elevated bar bites – just dropped a fresh new menu and it seriously screams “Bite Me.”

In the retro pages of the zine, expect to find The Anderson’s rad take on cocktails broken up into two sections: Freshies and Stiffies, both made up of new, creative cocktails engineered by the bar’s own Joshua Alperstein. Standouts include The 51st State made with Old Forester Bourbon Miami Coconut Water, Dried Citrus; Morning Wood made with Tullamore Dew Whiskey St. George Coffee Liqueur, Kahlua & Cream Froth; No Sugar Added with Absolut Lime, Aperol and Seedless Cucumber Topped with Rosé & Sparkling Water; and Beets by Bro a combination of Ilegal Mezcal, Fresh Beet Juice, Pressed Lime Citrus Bitters, Sage & Pickled Beets

Don’t freak – the signature Mr. Anderson made with Wild Turkey 101 Rye, Ilegal Mezcal, Cynar 70 Cardamon and Infused Italian Vermouth is still on the menu, obviously, and Death by Stereo has been resurrected to the new Life by Stereo, made with Olmeca Altos Tequila, Ancho Verde Squeezed Grapefruit and Mixed Herb Cordial.

To complement the eclectic cocktails, a truly mouthwatering menu has officially given elevated bar bites a new meaning. Munch on things like: Mix & Match Empanadas with Chef’s Herb Aioli, Short Rib Naan Tacos made with Herbs de Provence Short Rib, Applewood Smoked Bleu Cheese & Caramelized Onions; or indulge in the Anderson Smoked Wings with Popcorn Buffalo & Bleu Cheese Sauce; or Griot & Tostones which includes Crispy Pork, Tostones & Pikliz.

For those who want to stick to what they know, a.k.a the best chicken sandwich in Miami, old favorites are still on the menu including the Fried Chicken Sandwich made with Crispy Chicken Breast, Buttermilk Cabbage & Dill Pickles and the Tex-Mex Queso with Avocado, Chile Morita & Queso Fresco.


National Burger Month at Happy Wine

Every carnivore’s favorite month is here and it’s dedicated to all things burger. Happy Wine in the Grove, Miami’s cherished wine shop and restaurant offers much more than wine and they are cooking up a burger just for this gluttonous celebration. Chef Amire wanted to create a Frita to stay true to his Miami roots and when the owner JC Restrepo took a bite he knew that was it. The juicy hunk of meat is all ground in house, cooked to order and topped with lettuce, tomato, onion and white cheddar and a top secret sauce. The Frita is served with a side of house-cut French fries and a glass of house white or red wine, or draft beer for $14.99.


Summer Tasting Menu at Sushi Garage

With summer quickly approaching, Chef Sunny Oh of Sushi Garage has crafted a tasting menu for two that perfectly combines a variety of light options, leaving you full yet refreshed on a hot summer day.

The tasting menu, appropriately titled Sushi, Sake & Sunny, provides guests with an intimate experience at the sushi bar, where they have the opportunity to watch their meal come together before their eyes. The menu features blackened edamame with sea salt, followed by a Hamachi Scallion Micro Cilantro Roll, a Lemon Veggie Roll, and Chef Sunny’s choice of 10 pieces of fresh Nigiri.

Food items are complimented with Soto Sake – a 300ml bottle is provided with each tasting menu, further enhancing the flavors of each dish. The meal is completed with a Sushi Garage Shot; a refreshing, after dinner treat with hints of lychee, pear, matcha and coconut.

The tasting menu is offered at the sushi bar for $70 per couple and is available nightly during dinner service.
