It’s been a long time coming, but Soul Tavern is finally open. The Miami Beach meat-free gastropub was set to open in late 2016, but permitting and other city headaches pushed the date back to this summer. Thankfully, diners no longer have to wait for their fix of flavorful vegan and vegetarian cuisine. Variety is the spice of life, and as you’ll quickly see, Soul Tavern’s menu has a lot of it.
Every other day, it seems like a new restaurant is opening in Miami. One day, it’s a sushi spot. Another day, it’s an Italian joint. The week after, it’s a Peruvian restaurant. It’s food that we’ve seen — and eaten — time and time again.
Not so at Big Easy Winebar & Grill, which was among the first tenants to open at Brickell City Centre. The restaurant, which specializes in South African-inspired fare, is a breath of fresh air in a food scene that’s sorely lacking this cuisine. If you’re looking to spice up your dinner plans — literally and figuratively — Big Easy has you covered.
Need dinner plans on a Monday night? Pay a visit to The Café at Books & Books in the Adrienne Arsht Center, where James Beard award-winning Chef Allen Susser serves up a weekly 5-course vegetarian feast for $25. Having attended a special Valentine’s Day edition of the dinner, we can’t recommend it enough. Here’s why.
As food bloggers, we’re constantly going out to eat. Because of our endless quest to find the city’s best meals, we’ve practically given up on eating dinner at home nowadays.
Lunch, however, is a different story. In order to balance all the evening gorging, we have to eat somewhat healthy during the day. But putting together more than a turkey sandwich for lunch requires some effort, especially when juggling a full time job and a food blog.
