Pinch Celebrates 1-Year Anniversary With Stellar Menu

Pinch - Pinch

We love Pinch Kitchen. It’s by far one of the most consistent restaurants we’ve encountered, and the entire team makes you feel right at home. Go for dinner, and you’ll be wowed. Go for brunch, and you’ll be wowed.

So it’s no surprise that the restaurant is celebrating its one-year anniversary this month. In a food scene where many restaurants don’t reach that milestone (let alone last a few months), Pinch’s longevity is a testament to the quality experience you can expect.

To celebrate this achievement, Chefs John Gallo and Rene Reyes have released a family-style anniversary menu that features some of their best selections yet. And you better hurry in because the menu is only available this month.

But although Lekoke lacks the snazzy window dressing of its neighbors, it deserves just as much of your attention.

Red, The Steakhouse - Miami Spice - Bone-In RIbeye

Each year when August 1 comes around, we know Chef Peter Vauthy is going to go all out for Miami Spice. At Red, the Steakhouse, his menu is one of the few that changes regularly, giving customers a reason to come back again and again during the two-month affair.
