Our idea of a perfect brunch is simple: delicious carbs, refreshing drinks and outdoor seating (if Miami’s weather cooperates). Our most recent visit to Bird & Bone at The Confidante checked all those boxes. While our dinner experiences have always been great, the Southern restaurant’s brunch took our love for the place to the next level.
Let’s get right to it: The Wynwood Yard now is not the Wynwood Yard that opened late last year — it’s come a long way. Since opening in November, the outdoor space has undergone a massive face lift, turning into something so much more than an incubator for culinary concepts. Over the months, the venue has hosted everything from concerts to professional workshops and fitness classes — to name a few.
In March, The Wynwood Yard announced a bevy of additions and revisions, including new vendors and partnerships. Before our visit a few weeks back, the last time we were at the Yard was early December. We hardly recognized the place when we walked in this time around — and neither will you. We’re happy to see that the place has worked out its opening kinks and finally found its footing.
Here’s a quick peek at what you can expect during your next visit to the Wynwood Yard.
On April 19, Cochon 555 is returning to South Florida at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel. The popular pork-centric culinary competition will pit local chefs against each other while guests reap the spoils of an endless feast featuring tasty bites, wines, brews and spirits.
The one-of-a-kind event is a celebration of family farms, heritage breed pigs and the “good-food” movement. Cochon 555 dates back to 2009, when Taste Network’s Brady Lowe created it to fight the lack of consumer education surrounding heritage breeds. Each year, the Cochon US Tour visits 20 different cities and hosts hyper-local events to raise awareness about these issues.
