Lilt Lounge: Downtown Miami’s Hidden Gem

Tucked away inside Downtown Miami’s Kimpton EPIC Hotel, there’s a lounge that’s home to one of the most passionate bartenders you’ll ever meet. At Lilt Lounge, Spencer Taliaferro takes his craft seriously, and after hearing him talk about it, don’t be surprised if you feel just as passionate.

During a recent tasting at Lilt, that’s exactly what happened. Wowed by his knowledge and drinks, we left Lilt with a greater appreciation of cocktails and rediscovered a bar that we hadn’t really visited since its grand opening. Shame on us for taking so long to come back.

Pizza & Burger: A Match Made in Heaven

Pizza and Burger - Sign 2

It took a little over seven months, but we found it: our favorite meal of 2016 (so far). A temporary pop up at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach, Pizza & Burger has a permanent place in our hearts.

This summer concept at Michael Mina 74 combines two things we love — guess which two — and improves on them exponentially. While the vibe is relaxed and casual like your traditional backyard gathering, the food is some next-level deliciousness.

PB Station: Don’t Miss This Downtown Miami Stop

PB Station

When we first heard a Pubbelly restaurant would be opening on the mainland, our ears perked up. We love the PB boys, but making it out to the beach to visit their restaurants can sometimes be a hassle. After learning that PB Station would open with the Langford Hotel in Downtown Miami, we waited for construction of the building to finish. And waited. And waited some more.

The hotel, which was scheduled to open last year, finally opened a little over a month ago, and so did PB Station. The New American craft eatery is designed to look like a train station — think Grand Central, not Metrorail — and it certainly took us for a tasty ride. We liked it all, but here’s what we liked the most about this new Downtown hotspot.
