“Whoa.” That was our reaction after finishing our meal at BLT Steak, the South Beach steakhouse that has a new lease on life inside Iberostar Berkeley Hotel. Back in early 2016, the restaurant closed up shop on Ocean Drive and bid its time to make a triumphant return. If our recent dinner was any indication, BLT Steak 2.0 has succeeded.
When we first visited NaiYaRa, Chef Piyarat Potha Arreeratn aka Chef Bee had just opened this ode to Asian street fare in Sunset Harbour. A year has passed since then, and Chef Bee has introduced many new dinner items to the menu (and he has plenty more in the works).
Although the menu has changed, the experience hasn’t. These latest additions continue to deliver the value, flavor and satiety that diners have come to expect from the fare at this Miami Beach hotspot.
When you hear the words “mall food,” what’s the first thing that comes to mind? If your first thought is the food court, you’re in good company. For a while, we thought quality dining and the mall should never appear in the same sentence.
That started to change for us when Dadeland Mall opened a new wing in 2014, bringing in a slew of new restaurants. Among them: Earls Kitchen + Bar, a Canadian-based concept specializing in global cuisine. We quickly fell in love and now look for any excuse to return to bae. Our latest excuse: new fall offerings.
With over a dozen locations and many more in the works, STK is doing something right. The steakhouse recently double downed in Miami, opening a second location in Downtown. If you’ve been to the South Beach outpost, you already know what to expect: quality American fare and a fun vibe.
Miami Spice is our favorite time of year. When over 200 restaurants let diners try their fare at a fraction of the price, going out to eat for dinner every day is actually affordable. But while the two-month period gets all of the attention, the events leading up to the main event are just as fun and budget friendly. Case in point: the Miami Spice Mash-Ups.
