Tanuki offers a true taste of Pan-Asian cuisine within a fun, casual environment. Located on South Beach’s bustling Alton Road at the corner of 11th street, Tanuki brings the spirit of East Asia to the South Beach dining scene with its first United States location. Tanuki’s menu will feature faithful renditions of Imperial favorites including classics such as sushi, sashimi, specialty rolls, soups and signature entrees including Tanuki’s take on Peking Duck. Inspired by the mythical Japanese talisman of good fortune, a 7-foot tall Tanuki statue lies at the center of the lively dining room welcoming locals and tourists alike. Here is more information about Tanuki :

 

According to Urban Daddy :

"Believe it or not, these guys actually come to us via—wait for it—Moscow. Naturally, they’ve chosen our city to debut their fancy new Pan-Asian concept. Which is good news for you and the temaki aficionado you’ve made dinner plans with. Because they’ve got that. You’ll step into an airy space with reclaimed-barn-wood walls and steel beams. And yes, that’s a giant statue of a raccoon-dog hybrid presiding over the on-goings of the dining room. That’s a tanuki. Apparently it’s a talisman of good fortune. Listen... whatever works. To one side of the wraparound LED bar: an open kitchen, alive with promises of robata-grilled meats and truffled yellowtail maki and Peking duck soba. But we’re getting ahead of ourselves here—back to the bar. With all its popcorn rum, wasabi-infused mezcal and smoked coconut cream at its disposal until 2am, drinking will be an equal priority."

 

According to Eater :

"Staying true to South Beach's grandiose rep, the menu will feature over 150 items including sushi, sashimi, specialty rolls, dim sum and a complementary traditional tea service offered at the beginning of the meal. For those who opt out of the tea, Tanuki's cocktail menu also highlights Asian ingredients in its traditional libations. Diners will be greeted by a giant statue of the Tanuki itself, a Japanese raccoon dog known in folklore as a mischievous and jolly master of disguise, surrounded by barn-wood walls, steel beams and an open kitchen. The combined indoor and outdoor dining areas will accommodate 100 people." written by Greyceli Marin.

 

According to Yelp :

"This new place hits the spot for me! I've been waiting for some quality affordable sushi to open in the west avenue area for a while now and after checking Tanuki out today after a long flight back home from Milano I can see now it was worth the wait. The location is perfect for us West Ave folk, on 11th street, right in the middle, plenty of seating, brand new and clean, great service and the food is super fresh and delicious, i think they deliver too Bc I saw this cute little car outside with their logo, so I will be ordering delivery from them soon! I had the tuna tartar, which was amazing, so was the salmon taco, And the toro sashimi (forgot to take a picture but it was delicious).
For desert I had the green tea pana cotta and bit was that yummy, my bf had some type of tiramisu in a cup (also very tasty and no picture sorry!). The prices were pretty fair too. I really liked the first impression this place have left me and will be back soon :)" written by Anita (rated 5 stars).

Recently they're having a revamp and comes back after a bit of a hiatus. Here is more information about Via Emilia 9 :

 

According to Urban Daddy :

"Via Emilia 9, your beloved South Beach Bolognese hideout is back after a nearly monthlong hiatus. It’s different and it’s back. Take a look at what was then and what is now. Then: Two cramped rooms. Kitchen to the left. A door leading to the dining room on the right.
Now: An open kitchen with a long pass-through window that flows into where you’ll be partaking in imported Italian breads, mortadella and stracchino. Then: An afterthought of a bar. Now: A bigger, stronger, faster eat-in bar, which may or may not lean more toward wine drinking than eating. It happens. Then: Ravioli that was hand-rolled on a wooden table in the corner. Now: A pasta-making station where you can oversee an expert sfoglina (that’s Italian for a pasta-sheet maker) making your tortellini, which will then be stuffed with prosciutto di parma, parmesan, beef and pork."

 

According to Eater :

"Over the past month, two-year-old South Beach Italian eatery Via Emilia 9 has gotten a face-lift. The traditional Italian restaurant's new additions feature an open kitchen, an expanded market with Italian goods for sale, an eat-in bar, and a dedicated pasta making station, where guests can watch its executive chef Giancarlo "Wendy" Cacciatori hand roll a variety of pastas and raviolis daily. Via Emilia 9 owners, Cacciatori and his wife Valentina, tell Eater that they decided to open up the space to give diners a look into the daily workings of an Italian kitchen. Along with the new additions, the restaurant’s existing counter top and kitchen space was expanded, frosted glass was added on the bottom half of the street facing windows, and new tables and chairs helped update the dining room." written by Olee Fowler.

Lilikoi Organic Living opens at 500 S Pointe Dr. Here is more information about Lilikoi :

 

According to New Times :

"They’ve kept true to their back-to-basics lifestyle by sourcing from local farmers as much as possible and changing the menu according to the produce they find. “We have a lot of fun talking to different farmers and seeing what they’ve got to offer,” Tina says of the menu. “We just switched to gobo, which is burdock root. Instead of doing potato chips, we flash-fry them in coconut oil.” Most dishes cost less than $20. Their clientele has been as curious and trusting with Torterola's food as he's been fun and inventive with it. They’ve even cultivated some fruitful relationships with their regulars. “Gary, one of our first customers, turned out to be the owner over at Little Haiti Community Garden! Now we get our papaya and curly kale from there.” Nothing is overlooked — even the waste from the juicer and kitchen leftovers is turned into compost and picked up by Fertile Earth three times a week." written by Paula Echevarria.

 

According to Herald :

"Lilikoi Organic Living offers a menu using mostly organic ingredients with a focus on clean eating, so there are plenty of vegan and vegetarian options and hormone-free meats. Nutritional yeast is used in place of salt, and frying is done in coconut oil. The space near South Pointe Park has a tropical vibe with a black-and-white mural of plants, wood tables and a pressed tin ceiling painted white. Wicker chairs and a couch are at distressed wooden tables in the covered patio. There are juices, smoothies, sandwiches, salads and mains like green farro risotto made with an ancient wheat grain, green beans, pesto and a dollop of goat cheese; shrimp skewers with chile sauce; and gluten-free pizza made with rice flour." written by Linda Bladholm.

 

According to Yelp :

"Ordered delivery and it came quickly and warm/hot. Just turned vegan a month ago so I was skeptical about trying a vegan "burger" but it was deliciously amazing! The bun and patty fell apart after a few bites but who cares, tasted great in my mouth. Didn't even need additional sauces for it, I usually put ketchup and mustard on my beef burgers. Got it with a side of potatoes that was great too. Bf, who is gluten free, ordered the Asian style noodles with buckwheat noodles. It was good, not great. Very gingery. Needed more sauce but could have dried out because we got delivery. The flavors and mushrooms were very good though." written by Eunice (rated 5 stars)

Here is more information about Cafe Des Arts :

 

According to Miami.com :

"The French colonization of SoFi continues with this model-friendly spot, from the original owners of Bâoli in Cannes, France. The former La Terrasse still sports a small but classy dining room decked out in marble-topped tables, black-and-white photographs of French ingénues and a swanky communal table for private dining. Outdoors offers plenty of patio seating across from Joe’s Stone Crab. Tables are outfitted with linens and flowers, and the vibe is date-friendly. The Dishes: French-Mediterranean. Prices skew to the jetset crowd, with starters averaging $14 and mains in the $30-range. A generous list of $8 house wines by the glass is a refreshing change (though we’d like to see vintages, please). Fresh bread service gets things started with cheesy gougère and ciabatta rolls." written by Sara Liss.

 

According to Yelp :

"The house made foie gras terrine is a perfect balance of spice and texture. I wish they had a good authentic French baguette to go with it but the toasts and bread worked very well. I have to echo other comments on the house wine. Yum! Well-done! The atmosphere is like spa for restaurants. So relaxing. Sat at the bar for app and cocktails. Bartender is well-balanced in personal and private. Other staff seemed attentive and focused. Try it!" written by Lorrinda (rated 5 stars).

Here is more information about Craft Social Club :

 

According to Urban Daddy :

"It’s got gray brick walls. It’s got a bunch of comfortable places to sit. It’s got a big L-shaped bar made up of white subway tile. But most importantly, it’s got taps behind that bar loaded with drinks that’ve been carefully crafted in the neighboring open-air kitchen. Like the Dillinger with bourbon and orange bitters. Or the O.D.B. with tequila, lime and Fresno chili agave. Or the absolutely-anything-else because they’re all worthy of your full attention and respect. Show up late-night with the kind of group that has a loose interpretation of the word “night.” Opt for one of those navy banquettes and laugh at all the funny things you keep saying to each other. Or better yet, request a cocktail suite. Those come equipped with built-in service bars and bartenders who know how to use them for good."

 

According to Eater :

"Craft Social Club is the brainchild of industry vets RT Murphy and LP Steele, who have revamped the space to include hanging shrubbery, plenty of exposed brick and an open kitchen, which isn't serving food just yet — but we're told a small bites menu will be coming shortly. The bar is now open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. at 100 Collins Avenue." written by Olee Fowler.

According to Urban Daddy :

"It’s a club. You’ll dance here. You may have already gathered that. But should you still need further convincing, maybe turn to the champagne cooler. Or the requisite tufted banquettes everywhere. Or the six-foot black crystal chandelier hanging from the middle of the room. Because that’s all in here, too. So: tonight. You’ll bring a group of friends. You’ll feel the Basel-related vibe reaching a crescendo as you order something bubbly for the group. Or one of the truffle martinis instead. They’ve got truffled vodka in them, which is... something. Things are going well. Attractive new people are everywhere. With your drink firmly in hand, you look to the upper level and notice some scantily clad dancers doing dancer things up on the balcony. Like dancing. And over there, a DJ is doing DJ things. Like DJing."

 

According to Haute Living :

"Miami used to be famous for its nightlife, but lately more new restaurants open up than night clubs. Fortunately, there are a few coming this season, the first of which is Bond Lounge opening at 1905 Collins Avenue in the storied Rok Bar space. The new club is taking things upscale with design language meant to invoke a New York library complete with rich wood paneling, bronze candlestick sconces, crystal chandeliers and tufted banquettes. Bond Lounge is a cocktail den that offers up various intimate spaces to get cozy in. They’re also hoping that people come by a little earlier than the usual South Beach start time of midnight as Bond opens up at 9pm. This makes for a perfect after dinner or before dinner drink spot (depending on how much of an early bird or night owl you are.)" written by Hadley Henriette.

Add a protein like grass-fed beef tenderloin ($7), free-range orange-basil chicken ($5), or quinoa-crusted day boat fish ($7).

A charming and eclectic space beneath sprawling trees and twinkling bistro lights, Cafe Nikki features a mix of South of France Pastries and croissants are baked daily in a Pavailler oven imported directly from France, and served with Alain Milliat marmalades and juices from Lyon. Cafe Nikki will be open this Friday, 21 Aug 2015 at SoBe. This serene cafe features freshly brewed coffees and teas, house made pastries and croissants, imported jams and marmalades plus breads prepared by Miami’s favorite artisan, Zak the Baker. It will be open Monday-Saturday from 9AM til 4PM. Here is more information about Cafe Nikki :

 

According to Urban Daddy :

"Hard to believe, but Nikki Beach is getting into the French café game. Really. You’ll find it in their courtyard area. And it’s all sprawling trees, towering bookshelves, cushioned couches and suspended wicker swings. Just a charming little spot to while away the afternoon, pretending you’re in the South of France. Minus the France part. They’ve got coffee and tea, sure. But also juice imported from Lyon. And a Pavailler oven from France baking croissants and pastries, like the kiwi-topped custard tart. Which might work for a quick afternoon snack in between meetings. But if it’s shaping up to be more of a lunchtime rendezvous with a friendly face, look to some Zak the Baker bread paired up with smoked-salmon quiche."

 

According to New Times :

"This little French cafe serves light breakfast and lunch fare like coffees and teas, croissants, quiches, pastries, European marmalades, and Zak the Baker bread in a charming courtyard filled with greenery at reasonable prices. And by reasonable, we mean reasonable. In other words, how does a muffin or a cookie for one dollar sound? After perusing the menu, I seriously had to confirm the pricing with a rep for the cafe. She replied in the affirmative, adding, Café Nikki was truly created for the local community. We wanted an accessible menu that had something for everyone within a comfortable environment. If you're looking for something a little more filling, a quiche made with salmon cured in-house or Florentine quiche is $5 each; a fresh fruit and Greek yogurt parfait is $5; and a basket filled with two slices of Zak the Baker bread, butter, cream cheese, and assorted jams is $3." written by Laine Doss.
