The Brickell skyline is one of Miami’s nicest views, and YAKU by La Mar gives guests a front row seat to the spectacle. Located on the Northern Terrace of La Mar by Gaston Acurio, YAKU provides a more low-key experience than its upscale brother; it’s ideal for Peruvian cocktails and small bites instead of a full-on meal. If you love La Mar — we do — you’re certainly going to love YAKU.
In fall 2015, La Feria by Mercado de San Miguel set up shop in Downtown to bring a taste of Spain to the 305. Based on a similar Spanish food market in Madrid, the popup stayed put for a few months before going on tour and expanding the experience to others. This past October, La Feria 2.0 made its return to Miami, bringing back much of the same delicious food plus several fun additions.
After two successful Coral Gables Food Tours with Coral Gables Love, we all decided to switch things up for the next one. The result: our first-ever Doral Food Tour. Earlier this week, diners got a chance to explore Downtown Doral and become more familiar with this up-and-coming foodie neighborhood.
Blink, and you’ll miss Happy Wine while driving on Southwest 8th Street (Calle Ocho). The cozy wine shop/wine bar on 57th Avenue sits inside an unassuming building, and it’s easy to pass by if you’re not looking closely. Those who do spot Happy Wine will be rewarded with over 1,000 wine selections, tasty food and amazing hospitality.
Downtown Doral is killing it lately. Dragonfly Izakaya and Fish Market wowed us a few weeks back, and now another restaurant juggernaut is changing the neighborhood food scene for the better: Bulla Gastrobar. The beloved Coral Gables Spanish restaurant opened its Doral outpost last month and, if you’re a fan of the original, you’re going to love this one, too.
