When Federal Donuts closed earlier this year, we were bummed. Not just because we lost some great donuts, but also because we lost some damn good fried chicken. Thankfully, Le Chick in Wynwood — just a stone’s throw away from FedNuts — is doing an exceptional job filling that void (and more).
As local food bloggers, we’re constantly looking for great bites throughout the tri-county area. But one of the biggest obstacles we face living in South Florida is distance — everything is so far apart that you pretty much need a car to get anywhere.
Fortunately, The Diplomat Beach Resort in Hollywood has made our life easier with a mini food mecca. On the property, there are three restaurants — and many more to come — that run the gamut from casual cuisine to fine dining … and they’re all within walking distance.
We had the chance to stuff our faces at each one and explore the hotel with some fellow foodies, all thanks to The Blogger Union. If you’re ever in the area, it’s worth your while to check out this mini food city.
Last week, Burgerliscious 2016 took over Fred B. Hartnett Ponce Circle Park for a night dedicated to one of our favorite foods: burgers. For the sixth straight year, The Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce, Samuel Adams and Brown Forman Beverages / Jack Daniels Liquors partnered up to bring together over 20 local eateries to battle it out and be crowned Best in Bun.
In the past few months, we’ve gone on and on about how Downtown Doral is transforming the area’s food scene. With all the press surrounding that new community, it’s easy to forget that the city is making culinary strides elsewhere. One of those places: Dolphin Mall.
While a mall might seem like one of the last places to find a good restaurant, Dolphin Mall is making an effort to appeal to diners by extending their outdoor Ramblas Plaza and adding several new eateries. Among the additions is Burger & Beer Joint, whose South Florida locations include Brickell, South Beach, West Palm Beach and Pembroke Pines.
When burger and beer are in your name, those items better be good. Thankfully, this latest B&B outpost brought their A game, delivering delicious gourmet burgers, cool drinks and some epic desserts.
Your Tuesday nights just got a lot more fun. From 10 p.m. to close every Tuesday through August 30, Yard House at The Shops at Merrick Park in Coral Gables is hosting Pint Night, a weekly series dedicated to two of our favorite things: burgers and beers.
