Wednesday, May 22: Dinner at the Newly Revamped Honest Roots

What to Do in Miami This Week [May 20-26] - Costa Med, Honest Roots, Jamon Iberico Pata Negra, Ogawa - June 2024

Michelle Posada and Nathan Winship, the dynamic duo behind the beloved Michi’s, have relaunched their venture as Honest Roots, a chic Miami restaurant focused on farm-to-table freshness. Alongside renowned chef Mauricio Garcia, they’ve crafted a dining experience that’s as nutritious as it is flavorful. Michelle, a renowned chef and influencer, brings her vision from Michi’s to Honest Roots, infusing the menu with innovative dishes like tequeños, tuna poke bowls, and cauliflower pizza. Meanwhile, Chef Garcia, known for his multicultural culinary prowess, elevates the offerings with exquisite options such as smoked burrata with a sun-dried tomato tapenade, the Miami Beach bowl packed with grilled salmon and tropical ingredients, and the irresistible carne asada paired with pico de gallo and chimichurri. See you there! 

Honest Roots is located at 10437 NW 41st St, Doral, FL 33178. For more information, head to their official website.

Thursday, May 23: Omakase Dinner at Ogawa

If you’re able to get your hands on some reservations to the Ogawa omakase this week — by all means. It was only a matter of time until the recently opened restaurant was awarded its first Michelin star, and the time is now. Ogawa, the latest venture by visionary Alvaro Perez Miranda, has quickly become a beloved destination. Known as a Cultural Conduit of Japanese Gastronomy, the omakase restaurant offers an immersive experience in the heart of Japanese cuisine. Though it may not be the most budget-friendly spot, the journey it offers into the depths of culinary artistry is unmatched. You won’t know what to expect on the menu, as each evening, the chefs prepare seasonal seafood delicacies flown in straight from Japan that morning. Just know that you’ll be feasting on some of the rarest produce this side of the globe. 

Friday, May 24: Flamenco Night at Jamon Iberico Pata Negra

This Friday, let’s immerse in the soulful allure of flamenco at Jamon Iberico Pata Negra, the town’s most authentic Spanish restaurant. Here, the strumming of guitars and the rhythmic clacking of heels create a symphony of passion and tradition that fills the cozy venue. You’ll be captivated by the dancers’ raw emotion and intricate footwork, a mesmerizing performance that transports you straight to Spain. While you revel in the show and sip on fine Spanish wine, indulge in a sumptuous selection of Spanish delicacies, including the finest Iberian ham and manchego cheese, flown in directly from the motherland. For a heartier bite, we’re impartial to the seafood paella which complements the performance perfectly. To secure the best seats and the fullest experience, be sure to make your reservations in advance!

Saturday, May 25: National Wine Day at Costa Med

What to Do in Miami This Week [May 20-26] - Costa Med, Honest Roots, Jamon Iberico Pata Negra, Ogawa - June 2024

If you didn’t already know, Costa Med is called Costa Med Bistro + Wine for a reason. They have hands down the best wine selection in Key Biscayne, possibly in all of South Florida. Is it worth taking a drive there this Saturday? Indubitably! The entire Mediterranean-inspired menu pairs perfectly with the fine sips that the bistro has in store. We love dining family style here and getting a bit of everything to share: foie gras vol-au-vent—a fresh duck moulard liver paired with apple chutney and a port wine reduction; escargots à la bourguignonne, which comes sautéed in a white wine sauce with plenty of herbs and garlic; and but of course, the piccata di vitello al limone—veal scaloppine served in a white wine, lemon, and caper sauce accompanied with pasta aglio e olio. Too much wine? Never!
