Summer is officially here, and along with it come garden concepts, backyard dining, anti-inflammatory-diet-based restaurants, and other gems definitely worth checking out. Here are four, newly opened eateries to explore when you need a novel date or lunch spot.
Bâoli Miami’s newest concept, Bâoli Garden, lives on the venue’s outdoor patio and offers an intimate, late-night setting featuring a Moonlight Menu with items exclusive to the garden area. Think crispy rice tuna, bâoli hamachi sashimi, and beef carpaccio pizzetta, among others. Along with new digs and menu, guests can look forward to a new “secret” cocktail menu comprised of five cocktails created with invisible ink, which diners can read using a special UV light provided by their bartender or table staff. Included on the menu are the Don, a cocktail meshing citrus flavors with a sweet honey bergamot tea paired with fresh ginger made with Don Julio Primavera; and B.B.D, a raspberry cocktail topped with champagne and blackberry dust. Bâoli Garden will also offer Hookah table service with a variety of flavors.
Bâoli Garden is located 1906 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139. For more information, visit their official website.
Wynwood’s newest addition goes by the name of Burdo and is the latest from Colombian-based hospitality group SinMente Group and Buenavista Investment Group. Burdo will be both a culinary destination and an entertainment venue in one, serving up modern American fare by day alongside playful party vibes by night. Executive chef Damian Magallanes has created an extensive menu featuring items like the Machete Burger, made with Artisan bread, grilled beef patty, bacon, caramelized onions, avocado, aioli, mustard, ketchup, bathed in a layer of creamy cheddar cheese, and served with French fries; green apple and cheese mix pizza, topped with blue cheese, mozzarella, bocconcini cheese, green apple slices in maple syrup, almonds, basil, and spinach; truffle pizza, ceremoniously prepared tableside and topped with parmesan and mozzarella cheese, creamy burrata, mushrooms, and fresh truffle; black wings, made with beer-battered tempura topped with sesame seeds, chives and bathed in black barbecue sauce; and truffle grilled cauliflower, featuring pea purée, tarragon gremolata seasoning, and truffle oil.
On the drink menu, prepare your tastebuds for an array of beers, wines, craft cocktails, and signature cocktails, including mezcal-based creations such as La Parca and El Chingon; gin-based delicacies including, but not limited to, the patio, fresh gimlet, last word, and gin fizz; and sweet offerings including la fraga, jalisco frontier and in basil.
Outside on the 4,000-foot, open-air patio, guests will find Criminal Taqueria at Burdo, which operates independently with a quick grab-and-go service concept, doling out a variety of tacos, burritos, quesadillas, esquites, and elote bowls, as well as margaritas and micheladas.
