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.
It’s been a long time coming, but La Centrale is finally open inside Brickell City Centre. We’ve been eagerly awaiting the three-floor Italian food hall, which was slated to open late last year but Miami ruins everything. Now that it’s (almost) fully operational, we got to peek inside the venue’s first floor and eat our weight in carbs. Was it worth the wait? Yes x1000.
Italian food is our favorite cuisine. We just love the warm, fuzzy feeling you get after enjoying a heaping bowl of pasta or a delectable pizza. At Prezzo in Boca, that feeling was everywhere.
“You need to go to Andiamo.”
“How have you not been to Andiamo?”
“We love Andiamo. Definitely check it out.”
Whenever we talk to our friends about good pizza in Miami, Andiamo always pops up in the conversation … and at least one of the above statements makes an appearance, too. For about two years, we’ve been told we need to visit, and we finally did — just in time for their 16th anniversary (a huge milestone in Miami). By waiting so long, we’ve been missing out on some amazing pizza.
Your Monday nights are getting a lot more interesting. Dolce Italian, the Gale South Beach’s popular Italian eatery, recently launched Mangia Mondays to satisfy your pasta fix. The weekly special lets diners enjoy one of the restaurant’s signature pastas for just $10.
That’s a steal for pasta, especially from a Bravo TV “Best New Restaurant” winner. But while you should come in for the specially priced pasta, you should stay and try out the rest of the menu, too.
