In Wynwood, restaurants are a dime a dozen. You can’t walk a block without running into some sort of eatery or cafe. But among the many concepts in the neighborhood, there’s something that’s long been missing: a sports bar. And not just any sports bar — a damn good one.
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).
There’s officially a new taco spot in town: The Taco Stand. This California-based eatery has brought its Baja-inspired fare to Wynwood, where guests can enjoy tacos, burritos, quesadillas and other appetizing bites to satisfy their Mexican food cravings.
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.
If you’re local and on Instagram, odds are you’ve heard of Bocas House or seen their larger-than-life milkshakes. These decadent desserts are always popping up on social media, and the restaurant’s 100,000+ following is a testament to their popularity. But here’s what you might not be as familiar with: the rest of the menu.
Yes, the milkshakes will get you in the door — they’re worth every penny — but you’ll stay for the Venezuelan and Peruvian fare.
