Time flies: It’s been almost 10 years since Sugarcane Raw Bar Grill opened its doors in Midtown Miami. Since then, the restaurant has expanded to two other cities and shows no signs of slowing down. Despite this growth, Sugarcane hasn’t forgotten its roots. To celebrate the 305, the eatery has put together a limited-time ‘Made in Dade’ menu that features favorites from its early days plus some new additions. Don’t delay: You only have until April 15 to enjoy these delights.
Since we last wrote about Mason Eatery, a lot has changed. Last year, the Midtown restaurant closed temporarily for a revamp. Much — but not all — of the casual diner fare is gone, and more sophisticated dishes have made their way onto the menu. As a result, diners get the best of both worlds.
RIP Gigi. The beloved late-night eatery met a news-worthy end last summer, leaving big shoes to fill along with a big space. Enter Brian Nasajon of Beaker & Gray, who has since revamped the place and turned it into Mason Eatery, an all-day diner that does no favors for your diet. This is diner food done extremely well.
Unlike Nasajon’s other concept — where shareable plates abound — you’ll find plates as big as your face (if not bigger). And just as big are the flavors.
Every day, a new restaurant opens in Miami … or at least it seems like it. Given Miami’s fierce food scene, odds are they won’t last. It takes a lot for a restaurant to withstand the test of time and the city’s fickle food audience. Salumeria 104 has been a Midtown staple for years, and unlike other restaurants in the area, it’s succeeding — so much so that it’s expanded to the space next door (and to Coral Gables).
That growth says a lot. But despite it being open for a while now, we never actually visited Salumeria 104 until last month. We regret not visiting sooner.
Since starting Miami Food Pug back in 2014, we’ve seen plenty of restaurants come and go in the Miami food scene. It’s almost like a revolving door: One eatery closes and another three pop up in its place — and then the cycle repeats itself.
It wasn’t until last week, though, that a loss hit close to home. Proof Miami, a place we’ve frequented almost as long as our blog has existed, shut its doors for good.
