If there’s one word to describe Boulud Sud, it’s consistent. We’ve been to the Mediterranean-inspired restaurant several times since its opening, and it’s consistently delicious. This year’s Miami Spice lunch menu maintains that trend: Diverse, tasty creations are in store for anyone who comes in to try the special two-month menu by Chef Clark Bowen.
When we last wrote about Cleo, we were blown away by the quality of the food — we couldn’t scarf down the dips, shawarma and other Mediterranean fare fast enough. The restaurant has since gone through a revamp, and it’s back and better than ever. We went in with big expectations, and the Redbury establishment did not disappoint. Days later, we were still enjoying our leftovers.
Late last year, db Bistro Moderne called it quits. The French restaurant from Chef Daniel Boulud was a staple of the Downtown Miami food scene for years, and its loss saddened regulars who loved the upscale cuisine and generous happy hour.
Instead of saying bye to Miami after the closure, Chef Boulud brought his beloved Mediterranean concept to the former db space. It’s a decision that has made Miami’s culinary lineup all the better.
Byblos has one of the best Miami Spice menus you’ll try this year. Although there are over 250 restaurants participating in Spice, you can tell some restaurants are just going through the motions. Not Byblos: The Mediterranean establishment fully embraces the two-month promotion, giving guests a taste of the best dishes on the menu. If there’s only one Miami Spice deal you try, make it this one. Here’s why.
What was once a historic pump house is now one of Morningside’s most charming restaurants. Late last year, restaurateur Mark Soyka opened Café Roval just a stone’s throw away from his eponymous concept, and it’s taken the neighborhood by storm ever since. The vast venue features an equally vast menu comprised of tasty Mediterranean fare and a creative “cocktail” menu by master mixologist Douglas Beedoo.
