Wine Wednesday: Wined & Dined with Haunah Klein at Boulud Sud

Brickell is home to tons of amazing restaurants, many of which we think are often overlooked. Boulud Sud is easily one of our favorites that should be on everyone’s radar. It’s just over the bridge on the first floor of the JW Marriott Marquis hotel and if you aren’t a hotel guest, or within walking distance of the space during the work day, then there’s a chance you haven’t made it there yet.
