What local restaurants or businesses do you recommend?For clothing, there's a small boutique near Pinecrest that's wonderful, called Indigo Republic. I love going there with Aly and just getting a few things. As far as restaurants, Guadalajara is a Mexican spot that's family owned that we enjoy. We also like Anacapri, the Italian spot. Those are our go-to places.
What local restaurants or businesses do you recommend?I love exploring new restaurants and that's been hard this year with COVID, but I make all outdoor reservations. I call in advance to make sure that we have outdoor seating. If I see that it's too crowded, I won't go. We just went to Red Rooster last Saturday night in Overtown. It was probably the best mac and cheese I've ever had. In the Design District, my favorite is Mandolin for Greek food. It's a romantic, beautiful restaurant. We just went to the new Cote Miami, which is like culinary theater. In Coral Gables, Mamey is really good, with great outdoor seating. In terms of the Grove, we probably go to Green Street every two weeks because we love the waitstaff there, we know what we're going to get, it's dependable. For Thai food, we love Atchana. For Indian, we love Bombay Darbar. Paulo Luigis is like the Italian that I was used to grow up in New Jersey. And, the new ghost kitchen in Coconut Grove is Two Korean Girls. I love their concept. They come in these fabulous, bright pink boxes and the food is a great combination of flavors.
What local restaurants or businesses do you recommend?We've been going to Fairchild Tropical Garden, especially during quarantine, it's really an incredible escape. The landscape there may not change, but it's different every time you go. It's a great place to just explore and for the kids to run around. You feel like you have the whole place to yourself, even if there's a lot of other people there. One place we love for take out it Fratellino on Miracle Mile. It's a very small Italian restaurant, two doors down from the Playhouse. The owner is this guy Beto, you will love him. My wife grew up on Miami Beach, and Beto had a restaurant in Bay Harbor that she and her family would go to at least once a week. When we went to his new place, it was as if no time had passed. He knows everybody in there, he's a sweetheart. My wife who had a crush on him openly when she was 10, I think still has a crush on him.
What local restaurants or businesses do you recommend?Le Bouchon is a French place in the Grove that we just adore that we look forward to going back to someday. In terms of Mexican food, Talavera, in Coral Gables is really outstanding and authentic Mexican food. We were so excited to discover that place.
What local restaurants or businesses do you recommend?I think a couple of the restaurants on the Beach are certainly accessible. Joe's and the restaurant across the street from it. I've been waiting for the reopening of the Lobster Bar on 4th street. That was our favorite.
What local restaurants or businesses do you recommend?Yeah. Before COVID we would go to Chef Adrianne's and Cracked, which is another one of her restaurants. Apizza Brooklyn is one of our favorites as well. We would go to the Brick every week before COVID. We really don't go out very much, especially with the baby now. I can't wait to go back to the restaurants and eating food the way that it was supposed to be plated.
What local restaurants or businesses do you recommend?When Sarah and I arrived in Miami, and we didn't have anything in the house but an air mattress, we found the Asian Fusion Cafe in Palmetto Bay. They're very unpretentious with very good Asian food. They're not very expensive and super friendly.
What local restaurants or businesses do you recommend?Right in our same warehouse, a few doors down is an insanely great barbecue place called Hate Monday's Tavern. Their stuff is amazing - from briskets to Tomahawk steaks and smoked salmon. He has a big smoker right outside the front door. They come by and we'll do some wine tastings with them as well. I'm also a huge microbrewery beer fan. There's a great local warehouse brewery called Unseen Creatures. I love their styles, because they're very old school. They have a lot of farmhouse Saisons and lagers and then their IPAs are super delicious and clean. Also - The Eating House in Coral Gables is really good.
