Coyo Taco Brings Tasty Tacos and Tortas to Brickell

Coyo Taco - Brickell - Welcome

Brickell residents and visitors have a new place to get their taco fix: Coyo Taco. The Wynwood eatery opened a second location at Axis Brickell (1111 SW 1st Avenue) back in May, bringing its beloved Mexican street food experience across town. Guests can expect many of the classics from the original outpost, plus several items specific to the Brickell branch.

When we’re in Brickell and in the mood for Mexican food, we usually think of Cantina La Veinte. However, that’s not a place we can afford to eat at every day … but Coyo Taco is. Having visited Coyo’s Wynwood location and the now-defunct Shore Club location, we know to expect quality food at a reasonable price point.

For us, Coyo Taco is just what the neighborhood needs: a reliable fast-casual Mexican restaurant that won’t break the bank and is open late. And now with even more delicious items on the menu, it’s no surprise that Coyo has quickly become a neighborhood favorite.

Cleo South Beach: Familiar Mediterranean Flavors With a Modern Twist

Cleo - Cleo 2

If there’s one thing we love about Mediterranean food (besides its vibrant flavors), it’s that it’s ideal for sharing. We’ve had some of our best conversations with close friends while scarfing down mezzes, flatbreads, rice and other signature cuisine. The fare just inspires conversation and camaraderie, and Cleo takes it to the next level with not just good food but a homey ambiance to boot.

PB Station: Don’t Miss This Downtown Miami Stop

PB Station

When we first heard a Pubbelly restaurant would be opening on the mainland, our ears perked up. We love the PB boys, but making it out to the beach to visit their restaurants can sometimes be a hassle. After learning that PB Station would open with the Langford Hotel in Downtown Miami, we waited for construction of the building to finish. And waited. And waited some more.

The hotel, which was scheduled to open last year, finally opened a little over a month ago, and so did PB Station. The New American craft eatery is designed to look like a train station — think Grand Central, not Metrorail — and it certainly took us for a tasty ride. We liked it all, but here’s what we liked the most about this new Downtown hotspot.

Barceloneta: Did We Just Become Best Friends?

Barceloneta - Barceloneta

When we visited Barceloneta for a media dine a few weeks back, we weren’t expecting much. The Sunset Harbour restaurant, which specializes in Spanish Mediterranean cuisine, has been a staple of the area since 2011, but we just never had any urge to stop by; our “just-okay” experience at their now-shuttered South Miami location probably had something to do with it.

But life is all about second chances, right? Well, we’re glad we went back. Little did we know that we would enjoy one of our favorite meals of 2016 here — and one that had us immediately asking, “Did we just become best friends?”

Poké Pops Up at BLT Prime All April Long

 

BLT Prime - Octopus PokéPoké lovers, rejoice: BLT Prime is now serving up the Hawaiian dish all month long. On April 3, the steakhouse at the Trump National in Doral kicked off this latest blackboard special, which involves a delicious poké that changes weekly.

While the seafood dish has a firm footing on the West Coast, poké takes a backseat here in South Florida, where ramen and similar plates hog the spotlight. But if our experience at the BLT Prime media dinner was any indication, poké deserves a fair share of attention.
