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.
Happy Wine: It’s All in the Name
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.
Barceloneta: Did We Just Become Best Friends?
When we visited Barceloneta for a media dine a few weeks back, we weren’t expecting much. The Sunset Harbour restaurant, which specializes in Spanish Mediterranean cuisine, has been a staple of the area since 2011, but we just never had any urge to stop by; our “just-okay” experience at their now-shuttered South Miami location probably had something to do with it.
But life is all about second chances, right? Well, we’re glad we went back. Little did we know that we would enjoy one of our favorite meals of 2016 here — and one that had us immediately asking, “Did we just become best friends?”
Wag Wednesday: Juliana Gonzalez & Beckham
Over the past year, we’ve interviewed many members of the hospitality industry, and one constant among the interviewees has been a profound love for their pets. We thought it would be great to share this love with our readers. That’s why we launched an ongoing feature called “Wag Wednesday” to showcase industry peeps and their pets. Know someone who wants to be featured? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This week, we’re featuring Juliana Gonzalez, Executive Chef of Barceloneta, and her chihuahua, Beckham. Read more
