Fooq’s Continues to Impress With New Chef

We’ve been fans of Fooq’s since the Downtown Miami restaurant first opened several years ago. Owner David Foulquier was actually one of our first interviews for the blog way back in 2015. So needless to say, the Mediterranean eatery has a special place in our hearts (and stomachs).

Recently, Fooq’s welcomed a new chef: Clark Bowen, who’s made a name for himself locally at db Bistro Moderne and Boulud Sud (its successor). At Fooq’s, Chef Bowen is putting his signature touches on the Feel Good Food that Fooq’s is known for. The delicious end result has us more excited than ever for the future of this Downtown gem.

The latest to join the lineup is Pez, a spacious restaurant that fuses Mexican and Mediterranean influences into “Baja-Med” cuisine.

Jaguar Sun: Your New Favorite Bar

There’s a new bar in (Down)town: Jaguar Sun. Located on the ground floor of the X Miami Apartments, this new watering hole — named after a collection of short stories by Italo Calvino — is helping turn the neighborhood around. Those of us who work in the area (::raises hand::) don’t feel the need to rush home at 5 p.m., and residents have less of a reason to head to Brickell for some good times.

We’ve been here probably 20 times already, and each time the place is full of new faces and regulars. No surprise there: Word is getting out that Jaguar Sun is the place to be.
