Olla opens at Miami Beach Featured

Published in Restaurants    Written by
Miami will never experience Mexican cuisine the same after visiting OLLA (pronounced oi-ya). OLLA will celebrate the authenticity of Mexican roots and feature the diverse regional cuisines from Oaxaca to Puebla, Yucatan to Veracruz, and beyond while also using modern techniques and global influences. The meaning behind OLLA translates to a ceramic jar used for cooking where dishes will be served in shareable bowls for a family style experience. Here is more information about OLLA :   According to Urban Daddy : "Chef Scott Linquist of taco wunderkinds Dos Caminos and Coyo is behind this one. He’s carved out a modest little spot on the locals end of Lincoln Road (which would be south, incidentally). Wood beam ceilings. Polished concrete floors. A large landscape mural inspired by Mexican artist Diego Rivera. That type of vibe. Walking in, you’ll find a long communal table. It’s a good place to find yourself after a long night. Mostly because the place is open until 5am. But also because of the pots of simmering menudo, the barbacoa lamb shoulder and the roasted pig cooked Yucatan-style you’ll have to choose from. Decisions are hard. And since you’ll be parched (you’ll be parched), there’s a full…

The undulating trellis on the ceiling. The soft candlelight illuminating landscapes of the Greek Isles. Stop by for dinner, and bring that date. They’re doing the shared-plates thing with grilled octopus and oven-baked moussaka. Other shared plates to consider: The roasted manouri cheese with honey. The black ink orzo with langoustines. The crispy calamari. The grey mullet bottarga. They all play nicely with wine, by the way. Try to stay cool when people start smashing plates on the floor. You know that one Greek custom?

The 24 Hour Bistro that has enchanted over a million visitors for the past 10 years, is now finally opening in Miami, to become one of the nicest spot on Miami Beach. It's opening at 2200 Collins Ave. Here is more information about Paris 6 Bistro Miami :   According to Urban Daddy : "Yes, you could technically spend a full 24 hours here. And should you ever decide to entertain that somewhat horrifying notion, here’s what it might look like: 9am: Order the croque monsieur and a cup of coffee amid damask-covered walls, chandeliers and paintings by Brazilian artist Flavio Rossi. Note the uncanny likeness to scenes from Midnight in Paris. Moving on. 1:30pm: It’s time for octopus sautéed in olive oil and garlic. And maybe a beer. Definitely a beer. 8pm: If you’re flying solo, grab a stool at the ornate green bar and go with something classic and bourbon-y. If a date is involved, the corner of the tufted red banquette is a strategic call. So is a bottle of wine from the cellar and the Risotto au Ragout d’Osso Buco au Safran Hommage a Nelson Freitas. Just... focus on the risotto and osso buco. 4am: See…
