Also this weekend, consider ditching the car and if you can and… Continue reading

The Cuban music was playing, Cafe Bustelo cafecitos and Hatuey beer were being poured and croquetas and empanadas kept coming around non-stop. That was the scene at the Grand Opening celebration of Sergio’s Cuban in North Miami a few weeks ago.

Norman Van Aken’s Miami return is the brilliant Three in Wynwood

Three at Wynwood Arcade is Chef Norman Van Aken’s brilliant restaurant in the hipster neighborhood. No, it’s not in an arcade, that’s just the wacky name for this area/complex of Wynwood.
