Juvia Debuts New Brunch and Lunch Options

Juvia - Brunch - View

It’s been a while since we last visited Juvia, the popular South Beach restaurant known for its fusion of Japanese, Peruvian and French cooking. While it was a great experience for our palates, it wasn’t so great for our wallets. Juvia’s quality food and view come at a premium price (and deservedly so).

‘I Recognize That Place’: Ballers Edition

Ballers-DVD-3D

Here’s a fun fact about Miami Food Pug: We love Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. We’re also suckers for any show filmed in the Magic City. When it was announced he’d be starring in an HBO comedy filmed in Miami, we were ecstatic.  We literally counted down the days to the Ballers premiere.

Watching The Rock’s character Spencer Strasmore, a retired NFL player turned financial manager, navigate the football and financial world with all its ups and downs was fun, especially with unique characters like John David Washington’s Ricky Jerret. Side note: Did you know that’s Denzel Washington’s son? Now you do! Plus, how could you NOT like a show that has pugs in the opening credits?

While we watched the first season — out on Blu-Ray and DVD today — we found ourselves saying “I recognize that place” so many times that we thought we’d put together a guide to all the restaurants we could spot.
