SEPTEMBER - OCTOBER 2019

n a place as diverse as Miami, there are several avenues to discover what that city has to offer culturally. One of the ways is through its food and this month we take you on a tour of some of the newest—and hottest—restaurants in Magic City. Don’t think food court—food halls are all the rage. Find multiple high-end options at places from The Citadel in the Little River District to the Time Out Market in Miami Beach and Central Fare at MiamiCentral train station. Master chefs ply their trade dishing out everything from gourmet pizza to mouthwatering pastries. We also highlight the seaside city of Boca Raton where the beach beckons, but start to explore and find places like Butterfly World and the Gumbo Limbo Nature Center. Discover great shopping at Town Center at Boca Raton or the perfect steak at Abe & Louie’s. Art is a big piece of Miami’s culture scene. Discover exhibitions at the Boca Raton Museum of Art like “Beyond The Cape! Comics and Contemporary Art,” “Experiencing Nirvana” at the Pompano Beach Cultural Center and “Art After Stonewall, 1969-1989” at the Frost Museum FIU. Culture abounds and hopefully we’ve made it easier for you to find it.

FOOD HALLS Miami has perfected the food hall concept and there are about a dozen to choose from. Take The Citadel in the burgeoning Little River District. This multi-level complex boasts about 15 dining options from the likes of Haitian chef Jouvens Jean and gourmet chocolates from world-renowned pastry chef, Antonio Bachour. It also offers live music, DJ rooftop parties and retail and museum design popups that support local talent. The Time Out Market takes the food hall concept to Miami Beach with 18,000 square feet of culinary goodness. The 18 mouthwatering eateries

include Florida’s culinary master chef Norman Van Aken’s first foray into a food market with K’West (SOFLA fare) and Beach Pie (pizza), “Top Chef ” Season 13 winner Jeremy Ford’s interpretation of Korean flavors and Michael Beltran’s all-woodburning concept Leña. MiamiCentral train station’s impressive food hall and marketplace Central Fare will have you dining in, train to catch or not.

and grill at The Euclid Hotel, an Argentinian take on South American-meets-global cuisine. Think steaks cooked on a Josper oven served with roasted vegetables and rice and sweet treats like lemon tart and flan.

Longstanding São Paulo Japanese Michelin-star restaurant Kosushi recently brought its Asian (by way of Brazil) flavors to the beach’s über cool South of Fifth neighborhood. Devour as much of their artsy Japanese food as you possibly can and wash it all down with the Shokobutsuen—a mix of gin, fresh lemon juice, basil, cucumber, mint and organic sugar syrup. A few blocks north you’ll find swanky and sexy Mandrake, an Asian restaurant and cocktail bar offering high-end sushi and

modern Asian dishes created by Nobu alumnae. While the food is divine, the French-Indochine style dining room featuring an illuminated sushi bar and bold floralprint banquets sets the scene for lively dining and impressive people watching.

In Miami, most exclusive dining establishments are located inside hotels. It’s a winning combination for visiting tourists and for locals looking to escape the doldrums of daily life. Media darling Michael Schwartz continues to grow his culinary empire with Traymore by Michael Schwartz at the COMO Metropolitan Miami Beach. Schwartz’s latest culinary endeavor combines the chef ’s passion for fresh Floridian flavors with Southeast Asian influences. Start with the raw bar and continue your feast with wok-charred wild salmon with four-sprout salad, toasted pumpkin seeds and soy lime vinaigrette.
