STK Miami is not your daddy’s steakhouse. Inspired by and uniquely designed for the emerging downtown Miami cityscape, the restaurant will feature dining spaces with direct access to the iconic Biscayne Boulevard. This will also be the first of the newly designed STK restaurants that will be open for both daytime and evening dining. The menu features reimagined classic American cuisine with signature dishes like bite-sized Lil’ BRGs made with Wagyu beef, Lobster Mac & Cheese, and, of course, the highest quality steak. The STK Miami is located in the new ME Miami by Melia, at 1100 Biscayne Boulevard. Here is more information about STK Miami :


According to New Times :

"Geometric and pixelated modernistic patterns, courtesy of Indiewalls, abound. The restaurant's art collection includes commissioned works from international and local artists, connecting the location to the city’s vibrant arts district. The art-tech company also installed neon lights that invite guests to "dare to be" above one of STK's banquette-wrapped tables adjacent to the DJ booth. Unlike it's Miami Beach sister, this locale will offer lunch and outdoor seating, beginning in a few weeks. The menu is still very similar but, there are some new surprises. The former executive sous-chef of STK Miami Beach, Rafael Linares, will execute menu additions such as a shaved Brussels sprout salad tossed with apple, cranberry, aged goat cheese, and marcona almonds ($15); beef carpaccio topped with Parmesan, pickled mustard, garlic chips, and walnut oil ($16); and king salmon served over roasted baby vegetables, spiced yogurt, and herb salad ($29). To really start a party, guests can order shellfish for the table that includes oyster, shrimp, king crab, and ceviche ($29/mp)." written by Alexandria Guerra.


According to Real Deal :

"Designed by ICrave Design Studio, the black and white-themed space features pops of color via a neon wall installation, pixelated patterns and gold lighting. Its capacity is 326, with private dining rooms, gazebo seating on the lawn, and outdoor seating on the terrace, which fronts Biscayne Boulevard. The nearly 4,900-square-foot restaurant, at 1100 Biscayne Boulevard, is across the street from the new Frost Museum of Science, PAMM and Museum Park. Helmed by executive chef Rafael Linares, STK Miami will feature a menu that’s 70 percent “core STK” and 30 percent location-specific." written by Katherine Kallergis and Sean Stewart-Muniz.


According to Curbed :

"This will be The ONE Group’s second STK location in Miami, with the popular steakhouse already experiencing immense success on South Beach on the heels of a recent renovation. It’s being designed by ICRAVE. It will also offer lunch service and outdoor seating, with the design being described as "refreshed, yet edgy," per the release. There will be a custom art collection curated by Indiewalls, featuring works from both local and international artists." written by Josh Baumgard.

It will remain open to the public from this Saturday until Jan. 26, 2016 in Bayfront Park, offering a selection of artisanal products and the best informal dining, the organization says. Here is more information about Le Feria del Mercado de San Miguel :


According to Miami.com :

"La Feria del Mercado de San Miguel is a traveling spinoff of Madrid’s 100-year-old El Mercado de San Miguel. Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Giménez and Miami Mayor Tomás Regalado will lead a private ribbon-cutting Friday night, before the 9,000-square-foot, open-air market welcomes visitors at 10 a.m. Saturday. Guests will find food and drink kiosks selling all sorts of Spanish tapas and delicacies: acorn-fed ham, gin and tonics, squid-ink paella, montaditos, gazpacho, fruits, meats, fish and more. The market is set to run through Jan. 31 before moving on to another U.S. city yet to be announced." written by Evan S. Benn.


According to South Florida Gourmet :

"Like its home base the indoor tent will team with chefs and vendors, Spanish and local, wines and cocktails and freshly prepared foods from paellas and montaditos to tapas, gazpachos, seafood and regional delicacies such as pata negra ham, cheeses, sweets and charcuterie.  The Feria will open on Friday, September 25 at a ribbon-cutting ceremony led by Montserrat Valle, owner and president of Mercado de San Miguel, Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Giménez and Miami Mayor Tomás Regalado before the open-air market opens at 10 a.m. Saturday." written by Simone Zarmati Diament.


According to DowntownMiami :

"This itinerant take on Madrid's Market of San Miguel has 9,000 sq. feet (837 sq. meters) of covered and outdoor areas for serious wine and tapas tastings. The fair will have "numerous kiosks, counters and showcases with a wide-ranging offer of delicacies from regional Spanish gastronomy" in surroundings that preserve the early 20th-century architecture of the original market. The gourmet selection will consist of both traditional and contemporary cuisine. Madrid's Mercado de San Miguel, visited by some 75,000 people a week, 40 percent of whom are tourists, is the only market with iron architecture that has been preserved in Madrid, and is considered an Asset of Cultural Interest in the Monuments category."

Supply & Advise is a Miami-based menswear shop that offers a curated selection of apparel, shoes and accessories that is classic, rugged and timeless. Their style is inspired by Americana, vintage military and work wear, and the days when going out to dinner meant wearing a tie. Supply & Advise stand behind the selection of goods 100%, just like outfitters of days long gone. Now, Supply & Advise officially opens a permanent location at Downtown Miami. Here is more information about Supply & Advise :


According to Urban Daddy :

"Welcome to the permanent Supply & Advise, two floors filled with the sort of rugged, classic and exceedingly rakish gear necessary to navigate the city, now open in Downtown. Know three things about their new spot: 1) it’s here to stay, 2) the building it resides in was built in 1926 by Henry Flagler, and 3) the military mule is back. Yep, they drove it over from their old spot. Inside, it’s all wood cabinetry, vintage display cases and loads of military and Americana collectibles with stories to tell. Upstairs: a bar stocked with Japanese whiskey being led into action by a tiny Admiral Yamamoto figurine. Oh, and yes—clothes. Shoes. Bags."


According to HypeBeast :

"Newly opened in downtown Miami, Florida is the Supply & Advise menswear store, stocking a full curated selection of classic, tailored and vintage-inspired items. Housed in a historic 1920s building that had undergone renovation for three years, the store is spread over two floors with a barber shop and bar featured on the second level. Carrying brands such as Filson, Alden, Gitman Vintage, Gant Rugger, Todd Snyder, Orlebar Brown and New Balance, the timeless environment of the retail space marks a conscious departure from Miami’s often vapid reputation, instead tending towards an experience of class and substance."


According to Racked.com :

"The Supply & Advise store has been a long time coming, but it looks as though this American-themed gem is just about ready to open up its Downtown Miami doors! Facebook suggests that the store already looks perfect: Baxter of California shave, skin, and haircare products line a neat wooden apothecary shelf, the address on its door has gotten a gold leaf touch, merchandise seems to be laid out perfectly atop of military trunks, a buffalo head sits on a wall, and there's a shiny neon sign outside letting you know you've stepped into dapper dude territory."

Experience a new redefined Pan-Asian fast casual experience in Downtown Miami - 119 SE 1st Ave called Burrito San. Their mission is to provide you with innovative chef-driven asian fusion cuisine. They strive to offer not only the best taste experience but also the highest quality ingredients available. Burrito San sources local and organic ingredients wherever possible. Their poultry and pork are hormone and antibiotic free. They use exclusively grass-fed beef, line caught tuna, and wild Alaskan salmon. They know there’s more to a meal than just food so Burrito San offers a wide array of micro- brewed and craft beverages including a mostly local beer selection, small batch soda brands, and boutique wines and sakes. Here is more information about Burrito San :


According to Urban Daddy :

"If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Apparently, these guys didn’t get the memo. That’s actually great news for you, because their pedigree includes names like Lan Pan-Asian and Yuga. So if anyone’s going to mess with your burrito, it’s this crew. A casual workday lunch. A quick refueling between bar stops with friends. Go here. You’ll step into this simple, green-and-gray spot, queue up and place your order for “burritos.” Yes, “burritos.” See, they’re... different. Instead of a flour wrap, they’re using seaweed here—kind of like a really massive sushi roll. And they’re stuffed with rice and things like eggs, crisp spiced chicken, Yukon Gold potatoes and crunchy eggplant."


According to New Times :

"The concept here is simple: Nine fist-size rolls can be filled with white or brown rice and an array of accoutrements. The Mt. Fuji ($11.50) offers cubes of velvety bigeye tuna with avocado, masago, cucumber pickles, scallions, and crisp wontons. The rest of the options are cooked. The Filipino breakfast ($10) packs braised pork with scrambled eggs, roasted garlic, and pickled onions inside a seaweed wrapper. There’s also a vegetarian, tofu-filled choice ($9) with avocado, carrots, and wontons, as well as a Vietnamese-inspired burrito ($9) with lemongrass chicken, green papaya salad, jalapeños, peanuts, and fish sauce. Burrito San sits right in the fast-casual Zeitgeist and — with its slick lime-green-and-gray design — seems almost mass-produced and ripe for nationwide expansion. It’s similarly branded as a healthful, all-natural kind of joint. Co-owner Samuel Getz admits the bulk of the ingredients come from Sysco; however, he says he worked with the wholesale giant to get hold of line-caught tuna, wild Alaskan salmon, and Australian grass-fed beef. " written by Zachary Fagenson.


According to Edible South Florida :

"Johnson Teh and Kazu Abe’s fast-casual Lan Pan Asian at Dadeland Station and Yuga in Coral Gables have a dedicated following for their fresh, consistently tasty dishes that truly span different Asian cuisines, from sushi to noodles and Vietnamese wraps to Filipino food, Korean and inventive mash-ups like battered and fried tuna sandwiches, made of grilled tuna with rice and seaweed and yellow curry vermicelli, dotted with Chinese sausage, shrimp and peppers. Now, they’ve brought a new idea to downtown Miami: Burrito San, fat sushi-style rolls that are filled with traditional sashimi tuna and brown or white rice, but also other unconventional choices, like crispy masala chicken or braised pork, scrambled egg, banana ketchup and roasted garlic cloves, dubbed the Filipino Breakfast roll."


According to Yelp :

"I wanted to take a picture of my food to post but it was so good  I devoured it immediately! I wasn't sure about the concept but Burrito San really played well with the Asian ingredients and the Mexican formats.  I like the fact that they have a small menu because the ingredients are very fresh and the flavors are developed so well. I Ordered take out and got: Asian nachos - The braised pork was so tender and the cilantro cream sauce went perfectly with it. Not to mention how fantastic the crispy wontons are as the nacho base, Beefy Korean roll - Strong Korean flavor that's well balanced with the Kimchee and garlic beef, Mt. Fuji roll - A delicate roll with Fresh tuna and nice crunch with the wontons. The restaurant Itself is decorated with clean, modern lines and the set up is comfortable. But, what matters most is the food and they are nailing it. I would definitely come back and recommend this place! Bottom line: tasty, flavorful, fresh food at a good price" written by Adriana C.

Downtown Miami just got themself an addition of a Denim's collection shop called Lost Boy Dry Goods. Located in 157 E Flagler Street, Lost Boy Dry Goods offers complete collection of premium and also affordable jeans. Here is more information about Lost Boy Dry Goods :


According to Miami Racked :

"Lost Boy Dry Goods has opened in Downtown Miami, and boasts stacks and racks of premium and affordable jeans, collared shirts, tees and even dresses, all set within a very, very Western themed backdrop. Oh, and there's hot sauce. Plenty of hot sauce. But this store has roots deeper than a modern day Western. Brian and Randy Alonso are the brothers behind this new Downtown concept, but they've been in the Miami retail scene since the day they both saw daylight. Their grandfather founded one of Cuba's most popular department stores, La Epoca, which just so happens to be Miami's oldest running, almost native, department store." written by Ashley Brozic.


According to Urban Daddy :

"When it comes to stocking your wardrobe with a few seasonal staples, Downtown is... not exactly what comes to mind. Well, these guys are looking to change that. So they’ve taken over an industrial space there and outfitted it with all kinds of vintage Americana: jukeboxes, framed portraits of Thomas Jefferson and a big ol’ American flag. Oh, and yeah. Clothes. Like Scotch & Soda button-downs. Camo-printed Herschel knapsacks for three-day-weekend jaunts (ahem). Fidelity jeans. And soft leather bomber jackets for, well... you’ll think of something. You could also just skip the clothes entirely and peruse their vinyl collection (think: Pink Floyd, Bob Dylan, Elvis). Or better yet, take a gander at the armoire in the back filled with a variety of hot sauce. There’s local stuff from Key West and bottled heat from Kentucky—and all of them are up for sampling."
