When we last wrote about Palme d’Or, we were lavishing its Miami Spice menu with praise. After all, $39 for a meal at this five-diamond restaurant is an absolute steal. You know what else is a steal? The restaurant’s other tasting menus, which start at $115 for six magnificent courses.
If you don’t know by now, Asian cuisine excites us. Chinese food … Japanese food … Korean food … We love it all. So it’s no surprise that we also love Jaya, the modern Asian restaurant inside The Setai on Miami Beach. Since the last time we visited this South Beach gem, Chef Mathias Gervais has tweaked the menu and added several new items that are not to be missed.
Southern food is bae. It’s hearty, personable and fun on its own, but The Social Club’s Blair Wilson is kicking it up a notch with his personal touch on the restaurant’s latest menu. This isn’t the time-tested American-inspired fare you’re used to — it’s so much better.
If there’s one thing we love about Mediterranean food (besides its vibrant flavors), it’s that it’s ideal for sharing. We’ve had some of our best conversations with close friends while scarfing down mezzes, flatbreads, rice and other signature cuisine. The fare just inspires conversation and camaraderie, and Cleo takes it to the next level with not just good food but a homey ambiance to boot.
