They say patience is a virtue. We’ve certainly had to show a lot of patience when waiting (and waiting) for Malibu Farm at Eden Roc to open. For years, we’ve been eagerly anticipating the day that this super-fresh farm-to-table restaurant would finally make its debut. It finally has — and it was worth the wait.
For us, plant-based cuisine is hit or miss. Some restaurants innovate and make their vegan menu appeal to all diners, while others are simply happy catering to their niche. Planta falls into the former category: South Beach’s latest vegan restaurant is a feast for carnivores and herbivores alike.
Trust is earned. There aren’t many places where we feel comfortable putting our full trust in the chef, but Azabu is one of them. The Asian restaurant’s omakase experience, which takes place at its private sushi bar, provides guests with an intimate meal they’ll be thinking about long after it’s done. That’s exactly what happened after our multi-course affair that tantalized all five senses.
Earlier this year, we had one of our favorite meals ever at The Alley, a pizzeria and gelato concept from The Betsy Hotel. So when the invite came to check out The Betsy’s other restaurant — LT Steak & Seafood — we didn’t hesitate to RSVP. That swift response was warranted: The steak and seafood at LT is not to be missed.
We love brunch, and we love Asian cuisine. So when the opportunity arose to experience both these things in one sitting, we couldn’t say no. Tanuki on Miami Beach has made a name for itself with its delicious twists on Japanese and Chinese dishes, and its brunch selections maintain that reputation.
