Erba: Another Delicious Reason to Visit Dadeland


When you think of neighborhoods in Miami with good food, Dadeland isn’t usually at the top of the list. It has some amazing spots — Ghee Indian Kitchen and Barley (R.I.P. for now) — but we’re more likely to head to Wynwood or Miami Beach for a worthwhile meal.

When you hear the words “mall food,” what’s the first thing that comes to mind? If your first thought is the food court, you’re in good company. For a while, we thought quality dining and the mall should never appear in the same sentence.

That started to change for us when Dadeland Mall opened a new wing in 2014, bringing in a slew of new restaurants. Among them: Earls Kitchen + Bar, a Canadian-based concept specializing in global cuisine. We quickly fell in love and now look for any excuse to return to bae. Our latest excuse: new fall offerings.
