Miami: Top Openings of the Year So Far
Posted by Carla Torres in table8.com
Is it June already? Before you know it we’ll have blinked and the year will be over, but not before we can recount all the great meals and new restaurants 2016 brought with it. There’s no denying that Miami’s culinary landscape is hotter than ever. For proof, simply take count of all the restaurants (20 plus) that have opened their doors since January first, of which the 10 most notable openings are: Ariete, Bachour Bakery & Bistro, Glass & Vine, Los Fuegos, Plant Food + Wine, Sarsaparilla Club, Sushi Garage, Kyu and Zest. All 10 are worth adding to your list, but these are the six that deserve priority and why.
What do you get when two Zuma veterans join their front of house and kitchen forces to open a casual wood-fired Asian concept in the heart of Wynwood’s graffiti laden streets? Instant success, and likewise, some of the most elevated cookery not just in the area but in the 305 at Kyu.
Why You Should Visit: A pedigree of this caliber beckons a flawless dining experience from concept to execution to service; no surprises there.
Dish Examples: The surprises lie in the burrata (crowned with yuzu marmalade), in delightfully ‘burnt (code for smoky) ends’ of a perfectly pink-at-the-center duck breast, or simple yet complex sake braised beans. How does one say “home run” in Japanese?
