There's a new coffee shop that's just open at Wynwood. It is called Brothers and Brawlers. The coolest thing about this place is the fact that the space is a part motorcycle store, part boutique, part coffee shop. It is a Brandhouse for Dirocco Eyewear. Free shared work space, specialty coffee and shopping from curated independent brands. Here is more information about Brothers and Brawlers :

 

According to Eater :

"If you’ve made your way through Wynwood lately, odds are you’ve walked by Brothers and Brawlers, the warehouse decorated on the outside by a Stranger Things inspired alphabet wall. But inside the head scratching facade, lies a unique concept store space that is the brainchild of Sebastian Ramirez. Interwoven amongst the vintage motorcycles, racks of handmade clothes, sunglasses and bespoke tailoring studio, is a coffee bar that has quickly become the go-to spot to get a java fuel-up in the neighborhood. Manning the post is Panther Coffee vet Ryan Hall, who created Brother and Brawlers concise coffee menu focusing on a handful of espresso-based drinks using New York City favorite Eastlick Coffee and Miami’s own Panther Coffee. Each drink is tailored to the guest’s preference in coffee, sweet milk and foam, but cold brew, “original formula” Coca Cola and Sprite, along with a rotating daily doughnut by Ella Cafe are also on hand." written by Olee Fowler.

 

According to Herald :

"Imagine blending your favorite coffee shop, clothing store and man cave all into one? Sebastian Tatano-Ramirez had the same idea and his new concept store, Brothers & Brawlers in Wynwood, has brought the concept to life. Doughnuts included. Tatano-Ramirez started off with a sunglass line, Dirocco Eyewear, which he dubbed the first complete carbon design available on the market. Instead of selling his glasses to distributors around town, he created his own space to sell out of with a man’s touch. The space is big enough to fit a Land Rover — which he did, but then sold. It also has a suit room known as Brawlers Row; a coffee bar; and a space in the back to chill and take in all the action your eyes can handle. And, yes, everything in the store is for sale." written by CHRISTIAN PORTILLA.

 

According to Yelp :

"The coolest most original eyewear concept store in Miami and my favorite place to go work, have meetings, or just meet up with friends.  Really good coffee, amazing teas, and I just wanted to buy my husband everything in there!  If you haven't gone by, you must check it out! Miami needed a place like this". written by Chiara M. (rated 5 stars).

PUNCH specializes in creative mojito based vessels like fishbowl-sized urns with spigots. Reviving  the crafted punches of the 17th, 18th and 19th century but with a tropical twist. Homemade Cuban bites presented in a fun and colorful way, will bring delicacy to our complete experience. Fusing American comfort food and typical Cuban recipes. The art of sharing is about doing things in groups, and PUNCH facilitate a special bonding between people, making it a fun-loving experience. It gets people pushing tables together, and that's all you can ask for. Here is more infromation about PUNCH :

 

According to Urban Daddy :

"This used to be News Lounge. It’s since been taken over by the El Patio crew and given a decidedly Cuban makeover. See, the owners took a trip to Havana and decided to rip a page out of their boxing museum’s playbook. Which probably explains the boxing gloves lining the walls, the blue lockers and the poster of Cuban boxer Kid Chocolate on the wall. The theme is strong with this one. Inside, you’ve got a few options. There’s the Trophy Room, a solid spot for some rum and vaca frita sliders amongst a cadre of medals and championship belts. Then there’s the adjacent Ring Room with a private space in the back lined with punching bags. But the patio is where you’ll find the bar. It’s a makeshift one fashioned out of 5,000 domino pieces and bottle-lined scaffolding. To keep you entertained: an outdoor billiards table and a stage for late-night salsa dance-offs." written by Jackie Gutierrez-Jones.

 

According to New Times :

"The two owners came up with their new spot's name, Punch, during the taxi ride from the Havana airport. "The first place we visited was the most beautiful, cool thing: an old boxing ring surrounded by all these crumbled down ruins. Everything was made out of wood and metal." That boxing ring provided the inspiration for Punch's centerpiece, a 25-foot scaffolding at the bar (which is made from made dominoes) with a Cuban flag planted on top. Perez and Hoyos were also particularly intrigued by the legend of Kid Chocolate, the Havana-born light heavyweight boxing champion of the '30s. "The entire inside has a vintage boxing feel as a play on our name. We have giant punch bowls of mojitos that comes in three different flavors: heavyweight, middleweight, and lightweight." written by David Rolland.

Richard Hales is opening Bird & Bone at The Wynwood Yard sometime this April, where he wil serve "American Southern eat with-your-hands favorites with an innovative Asian twist." The focal point of his menu will be his own spin on the Nashvillian classic, hot chicken, and ribs at different levels of heat. Here is more information about Bird & Bone :

 

According to Eater :

"Richard Hales’ is adding to his roster of restaurants later this month when he debuts Bird & Bone in Wynwood Yard. Taking over his Dim Ssäm à gogo truck later this month it will feature "American Southern eat-with-your-hands" grub with a "innovative Asian twist." On the menu expect plenty of chicken and rib offerings available in five different heat levels including Nashville Hot and Numbing and Hell Fire, Florida fish toast made with local fish and Zak the Baker bread, pimento mac-n-cheese and two desserts created by Hales’ wife, banana pudding and goo cookies. This new concept is one of many new food outposts in the space arriving in the past month like Ash by Stanzione 87 offering Neapolitan pizzas and shaved ice-cream truck Mr. Bing." written by Olee Fowler.

 

According to New Times :

"Bird & Bone will set up shop in the next few weeks for spring and summer. Hales' Dim Ssäm à Gogo truck has been at the Wynwood Yard since January, and the chef thinks it's time to try a different concept. The truck is undergoing a transformation into Bird & Bone, being outfitted with a new façade that will make it look more like a structure than a vehicle. "We signed a three-month lease to do Bird & Bone," Hales says. "If it does well, we'll renew and possibly then look for a brick-and-mortar spot. The menu is something that works for an outdoor location." written by Laine Doss.

As you step into THE BOX, the dimly lit studio and the powerful vibrations from music’s latest hits recreate the thrill of that famous walk into the ring. Facing off with your personal heavy bag recreates the intensity of staring across the ring at your opponent, while your “K.O. SCORE” acts as the judge’s scorecard. THE BOX combines the glamour, grittiness, and benefits of the sweet science in a group fitness setting where you can choose to either compete with yourself or any of the 30 other boxers in the class. THE BOX uses a unique technology that allows our boxers to see quantifiable results during every class. Specially engineered technology measures your “K.O. SCORE”, which brings out your competitive nature and helps you improve with every class. Here is more information about The Box :

 

According to Racked :

"Formerly known as SweatBox, The Box is a technologically-driven boutique boxing studio that combines training expertise and sleek aesthetics in its 36-bag work out classes. Each of these heavy bags is equipped with a tracker to measure your "sweat score," a quantitative metric that monitors activity and encourages improvement. The classes are a mix of high-intensity interval training plus body-weight exercises that will have you burning calories and toning muscles day and night." written by ALEJANDRA TORRES.

 

According to Urban Daddy :

"Different type of boxing class here. For one, the blue-fluorescent-lit main room sports 30 heavy bags that you won’t find anywhere else. See, they’re equipped with sensors that read how many punches you’ve landed and the force behind them before tabulating that data into a “knockout” score that shows up on two flat-screens in the front of the room. No pressure. The classes last about 45 minutes. You’ll start off with a functional warm-up, move into shadowboxing and then work on those heavy bags before some core work and a cooldown set to... Janet Jackson. As one does."

Chef Michael Lewis and General Manager Steven Haigh bring a fresh concept to Miami with the opening of KYU. The wood-fired Asian inspired restaurant features a diverse menu and focuses on professional yet relaxed service and a commitment to green practices.  Located in the heart of Wynwood on 25th St., KYU now opens. Wabi-sabi, the art of finding perfection in something imperfect. This beautiful Japanese mind-set, echoes the philosophy that Chef Michael Lewis and General Manager Steven Haigh emulate throughout the heart and soul of KYU. A diverse menu, offering a wonderful array of flavors inspired by the many adventures and global travels of Chef Lewis and the Japanese barbecue grilling practice, Yakinku. KYU offers a balanced collection, from the refreshing and uplifting chilled crudo to the smokiness and flawlessly charred tastes from the wood fired grill. Here is more information about Kyu :

 

According to Urban Daddy :

"Yep, it’s definitely nailed that whole wood-fired-Asian-grill-meets-Wynwood vibe. Raw concrete, local art, wood and metal accents. Pretty much the ideal third-date scenario here. Mostly because your dinner date enjoys such things as duck breast burnt ends. And dinner. You’ll want to aim for a table near the open exhibition kitchen, where you can watch all the smoking and charring happening to your Korean fried chicken with butter-braised chicory or Wagyu beef brisket in black shichimi pepper. But they’ve also got sashimi and snapper tartare if you’re looking to counter all of that. Or, hell, throw a little caution to the wind and go for the Chef Experience instead. That’s six courses and a dessert left entirely to the chef’s whims."

 

According to Eater :

"The grill is the star of the show at KYU, with most of the menu centered around dishes prepared on it. Expect items like duck breast "Burnt Ends," wagyu beef brisket, Thai fried rice along with lighter options like hamachi and crispy spicy snapper tartare. Taking over the former Shikany space, KYU features "elements of the neighborhood in with raw concrete, local art, and wood and metal," with the grill itself serving as the centerpiece inside the open kitchen. It also promises to enlist many "green" practices such as using a Orca waste composter and planting trees to compensate for those used by the wood charcoal grill." written by Olee Fowler.

 

According to Hungry Post :

"Chef Lewis’s menu is influenced by years of global travel   and inspired by Japanese and Korean yakiniku (literally translated to grilled meat in Japanese). The menu will feature a variety of grill specialties, seasonal locally sourced produce and new-style sashimi. Highlights   include   Duck Breast “Burnt Ends” with yuzu pickles; Wagyu Beef Brisket with black shichimi pepper; and Thai Fried Rice Stone Pot; balanced by lighter dishes such as Heirloom Tomatoes with red onion and shiso; Hamachi in white ponzu, green herbs and chili; and Crispy"

 

According to Yelp :

"Beautiful restaurant, great ambience, incredibly attentive staff, our server, Edward (?) was genuinely nice and interested in providing a great experience.  The food was AMAZING.  The soft shell crab buns are a MUST (those buns are so soft and doughy, best buns I've ever had!) !! So delicious! The fried kale another must...so light crunchy and tasty! The burrata and brisket were exquisite.  I had two non-alcoholic drinks (strawberry basil drink and coconut something, forgot the name) which were delish and refreshing.  For dessert the chefs mom's recipe coconut cake was divine. It was THE BEST CAKE I've ever had in my life." written by Giselle (rated 5 stars).

Elo initially made his claim to fame on the runway as an international model in his early twenties, as the first black face for designers including Armani and Oswald Botang. With fashion as his passion at a young age, he tried his hand at creating his own line of clothing in order to command complete creative control over his style and look. Even his own fashion shows would feature classic cars worth millions that he would borrow from various dealers. In 2015, Elo decided to bring his creative expertise to South Florida and a city that would appreciate his talents. Plans were built to design an Auto Art Gallery and Gourmet Dining Experience in the heart of Miami’s Wynwood Arts and Entertainment District for a Winter 2015–2016 opening. This would form the start of Elo’s trans-atlantic success story. The place now open and called Miami Supercar Rooms. Here is more information about Miami Supercar Rooms :

 

According to Eater :

"Have you ever wanted to dine besides a vintage Rolls Royce or Mercedes Benz? Well now you’ll have the chance at Miami Supercar Rooms in Wynwood. The luxury auto collection has introduced a new series where every Friday through Sunday it will offer a five-course dining experience complete with unlimited booze for car-loving guests. While the dinner won’t come cheap — ringing in at $3,000 for a group of six — you’ll get your own private "pod" for the night complete with a swanky vintage car and a meal created by its restaurant in residence that month. Kicking off the series this month GK Bistronomie, who’s executive chef will create a special menu for the table. Guests are encouraged to eat and drink as much as they’d like, since the pod is theirs for the evening. If the $3,000 price tag is too steep for your blood, skip dinner and and grab a seat at the bar for the night, which features a rotating line up musical acts and DJs preforming in a 1971 Chevrolet C30 pickup truck that has been custom-built in to a 40-foot bar." written by Olee Fowler.

 

According to Thrillist :

"Welcome to Miami Supercar Rooms, the brainchild of Elo, owner and founder of the London Motor Museum. A consummate car guy, Elo dreamed of a restaurant where he could drive one of his collectable cars right inside and eat without having to worry about a valet moving his seat or a hoodlum trying to steal his collection of Winger tapes. And while vacationing from London a few years ago, he found Wynwood and thought it the perfect place to make his dream a reality. There is no menu, rather a monthly rotation of visiting chefs from around Miami, crafting custom menus for you and your group. He’ll greet you and talk about what’s on the menu for the evening, before you’re joined by the pod’s attendant who’ll tell you everything you ever wanted to know about your four-wheeled dinner guest, like the 1996 Dodge Viper these fine people are dining with."

 

According to Urban Daddy :

"It’s a car art gallery by day. In a generously sized lot in Wynwood that’s been stocked with some pretty sexy rides. A 1929 Rolls-Royce Bootch. A Ferrari motorcycle. A 1953 Lamborghini... tractor. See? Sexy. You’ll want to sit a spell.Meet Elo. He’s the guy behind this place. He also founded the London Motor Museum. And he knows the histories of every vehicle, some of which involve sibling rivalries and kidnapping. Cars are pretty serious. Dinner will be served in “pods.”
Which are basically these outdoor aluminum rooms containing tables for six and vehicles from Elo’s collection. And every month you’ll find a different local chef lending their skills to your plate."

Andy Bates is a champion of British food and family-style cooking. His modern twists on classic dishes are fueled by his international travels and a passion for re-discovering and cooking great British food. As the owner of specialist food company ‘Eat My Pies’, Andy has been bringing the best of British food back to the public for 8 years. Andy is a contributing chef for Food Network UK and has already had three successful series broadcast on the channel - Andy Bates Street Feasts and Andy Bates American Street Feasts.

 

His latest series, Andy Bates Brazilian Street Feasts, launched in February of 2014. All three series follow him as he travels across continents to explore the world of street food and find the stories and people behind the recipes. He is also a regular contributor on the BBC series, Food & Drink. As a result, he has become a leading expert on street food, with regular appearances at food festivals and events both in the UK and around the world. Andy has also published one cookbook, Modern Twists on Classic Dishes, and is in the process of creating a new cookbook inspired by the flourishing Miami dining scene. Since meeting his now-wife in Miami back in 2011, Andy has both literally and figuratively fallen in love with the flavor, essence and spice of the Latin culture.

 

Last year, he and Francesca came back to her hometown of Miami to film and photograph Andy learning how to make both popular and traditional recipes from the greatest Miami chefs, including Daniel Serfer of Blue Collar and Mignonette, Jose Mendin of Pubbelly and Timon Baloo of Sugarcane. Michael Moran of the FIU School of Hospitality also contributed and helped spearhead the initiative. The Miami inspired cookbook is set to be released at the beginning of next year. Andy’s dream to connect with the Miami dining scene through the release of the cook book could only be surpassed by the opportunity of opening his first true brick and mortar in Miami: The Avenue - Food & Brew. The concept, a unique British diner offering refined pub food classics alongside the best American craft beers, recently won the A+Eats competition awarding Andy and his team a year of free rent in Miami's up and coming Arts & Entertainment district. The restaurant is set to open later this year.

 

In the meantime, Bates is giving you a three day preview of his goods with a pop up at 7:30 p.m. January 21 and 22 and at 1 p.m. on Saturday, January 23 at The Filling Station Lofts.

According to Urban Daddy :

"Regardless, there’s just enough space in this narrow, wood-shelved corridor to house all of the stuff you’ll likely be gifting to a few worthy recipients in the coming month. Stuff like... The navy-colored Brakeman watch made with a football-leather strap. The name comes from the railway guys who used to apply the brakes on individual wagons in the early 1900s. Which is a strong choice for the person who isn’t exactly delicate in their sensibilities. We’re sure you know someone. The three-speed Bixby cruiser bike for the friend who insists on thwarting Miami traffic by not driving a car. Silly friend. An American-tanned, Horween-leather passport wallet for that coworker who’s always finding an excuse to get down to Brazil. It’s got five card pockets and an unlined slot for a passport. They’ll even monogram it with your giftee’s initials."

 

According to Eater :

"The store itself is gorgeous. While at the moment its facade is black and adorned only with Shinola's signature clock face suspended over the entrance, the store will be featuring a quarterly rotation of works by local artists, organizations, and museums to keep in line with Wynwood's signature artistic murals. First up is local artist Timothy Buwalda, who is known best for his artistic interpretations of totaled cars and machinery. Inside the corner shop, everything is displayed within finely done oak-hued cabinets and stands. Beautifully made watches for men and women range from $500 to $850, leather goods for men and women include wallets, bags, tech accessories and journals, and there are plenty of other novelty goods like candles, pencils and knives to be found." written by Ashley Brozic.
