Lutum: A Breath of Fresh Air in Miami’s Food Scene

Sunset Harbour has become one of our favorite dining destinations. Two reasons: In this Miami Beach neighborhood, the parking’s easy — hello, $1/hour parking garage  — and there’s so many restaurants to choose from. It’s basically a food blogger’s dream. Want to eat clean? There’s a place for that. Craving some pasta? There’s a restaurant for that. Tapas? Yup.

But what about a restaurant for diners who don’t want to limit themselves? What if I want it all or — more likely — can’t decide what I want to eat? Thankfully, there’s Lutum.

Pubbelly Burger Week Pays a Visit to Downtown Miami

Last summer, we had a chance to take part in Pubbelly’s popular PB Burger series with fellow food writers and influencers. Each of us worked with Pubbelly’s Jose Mendin to create a custom burger that would sit on the menu alongside the restaurant’s signature items.

If you missed out on the series last time, you’re in luck: It’s Pubbelly Burger Week at Downtown Miami’s Pubbelly Station. An extension of the two-month summer series, Pubbelly Burger Week features 10 different burgers for the taking. This time, though, Chef Mendin worked with Chefs Guillermo Concha and Craig Wolsk on the burgers — and they’re only here for one week.

Stephen Starr and his projects are no strangers to South Florida — or to us. The Continental, Le Zoo and Steak 954 are all places we love, so naturally we were excited to hear about New York’s Upland opening up on Miami Beach. Helmed by Chef Justin Smillie, the restaurant serves up California-inspired cuisine that’s taken South of Fifth and the city by storm. Stop by for brunch, and you’ll see exactly what all the fuss is about.

Commonwealth: Come for the Whiskey, Stay for the Food

Commonwealth - Flamingo

Whiskey. We love the spirit (or at least the drinking half of MFP does). So imagine the excitement when we caught wind of Commonwealth, a Miami Beach whiskey bar and restaurant that has taken over the old Automatic Slim’s location.

This excitement increased exponentially when we found out who was leading the kitchen: Daniel Roy, who served as sous chef at Matador Room and worked with Top Chef Jeremy Ford. Chef Roy has crafted a delectable menu with deep smokey flavors, which pairs wonderfully with the extensive selection of whiskey on hand. Emphasis on extensive: There’s over 100 whiskeys to choose from. In other words, you’re going to need an Uber.
