It was literally, a “Dim Sunday”, when we drove through the steady rain to No Name Chinese in South Miami. The modern Chinese restaurant helmed by Chef Pablo Zitzmann was a bright and welcome oasis with brick walls, open kitchen and counter and just the right amount of Asian touches. There is even a framed map of Hong Kong on the wall.
Fans of Josh’s Deli in Surfside know that Josh Marcus is the real deal. His non-Kosher deli in this primarily religious Orthodox neighborhood is a“fakedeli” as he notes in Instagram hashtags. NEXT JANUARY DATES: 1/18 and 1/25 just announced. DM @Joshsdeli to reserve your spot.
We just couldn’t wait for Taco Tuesday to feature the new Taquiza location on Collins at 13th Street.

No Sunday Funday is complete without a big brunch with all the fixings, and a few mimosas won’t hurt either. We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again — Miami loves a good brunch deal. With so many options it’s hard to navigate the ever-expanding brunch scene, so we did the research for you.

We’re happy to report that there are more options than just Joe’s Stone Crab and Prime Fish in Miami Beach for seafood fare. The Lobster Shack, which is conveniently located south of Fifth next to South Pointe Tavern, is serving up live Maine lobsters and so much more in a laid-back and relaxed restaurant.
Tall curly metal gates and an overgrown entryway welcome diners toCafé Roval in Morningside/Upper East Side. Strolling along a winding stone path you enter the 1920’s genuine coral house with a storied past that includes a water pump station, private home, home for single women and a hair salon.

Ever really wanted some pie, but not enough to buy an entire pie for yourself? Pink Pie, a newly opened pie shop has finally answered our prayers for mini (we’re talking 3 inch) personal pies. Just mini enough to eat two (or three) without feeling guilty — and there’s savory pies too!
Over the last few years, Little Havana has become a popular spot for more than just playing dominoes in the park. Thanks to the return of Ball & Chain in 2014, nightlife is back on Calle Ocho and Zack Bush is one of the guys to thank for it.
