Arjun Waney is no stranger to restaurants … especially in South Florida. The restaurateur behind some of Miami’s biggest names — Zuma, Coya and La Petite Maison — has set up shop in Miami Beach with a LatAsian concept that fuses Peruvian, Chinese and Japanese influences. Trying to capture all of that fare on one menu can be a tall order, but DÔA masterfully combines the three to craft a feast for the senses.
This goes without saying, but we eat a lot. And many times, we leave a meal feeling stuffed and tired (and wondering how we’re going to burn the calories). Not so at Manna Life Food, a Downtown Miami plant-based eatery that specializes in food that’s not only good for you but also makes you feel good.
A lot has changed since we visited DIRT earlier this year. But at the same time, a lot hasn’t changed at this Miami Beach farm-to-counter eatery and wellness bar. What’s different: the menu, which is now in full spring/summer mode with colorful, refreshing items to complement the seasons. What’s the same: Chef Nicole Votano’s impeccable ability to create satisfying dishes that are equal parts healthy and delicious.
