The Artful Eater
Visiting Wynwood during your trip to Miami? We’ve put together a list of places where you can regroup and restore yourself, no matter what time of day it is.
Breakfast, though we’re not talking crazy early (the fair opens at the civilized hour of 11): The Salty Donut has graduated from occasional popup to actual storefront, and man are we happy. Now we know we’ll be able to get our Brown Butter + Salt fix, or our Guava + Cheese. And those Apple + Dulce de Leche fritters are looking pretty good…
Lunch: Despite its name, Cake Thai isn’t just another sweet-sauced Thai place—Phuket “Cake” Thongsodchareondee brings the complex, authentic flavors of his original North Miami restaurant to Wynwood.
Mid afternoon pick-me-up: Brothers and Brawlers offers you a choice between Eastlick-fueled espresso (for all you homesick New Yorkers) and the local fave, Panther Coffee. Also, vintage motorcycles, to get your engine running.
Drinks before dinner: Beaker & Gray, both because you need a cocktail (Blast Furnace melds bourbon, beer, and apricot preserves) and you need to recharge your phone (sit at the bar).
Dinner, if you can’t: Head to the Wynwood Yard “culinary incubator”—or what we’d call a food-truck pod. No disrespect intended, though… the covered bar, the organic garden that supplies the vendors, the stage for live music add up to more than the sum of the trucks.
