New Business Openings
The second of two eateries and bars by The Cocktail Cartel and chef Giorgio Rapicavoli has officially debuted in Wynwood. Housed next door to their other new outpost, Grails Sports Bar, Spanglish Craft Cocktail is inspired by the different Hispanic backgrounds of the owners. Named after Miami’s “unofficial” langue of Spanglish, a hybrid of English and Spanish often heard in the Magic City, the chic bar celebrates the city’s multi-cultural background and is a reflection of the food the team grew up eating, the music they listened to, and how they celebrated holidays and birthdays. The bar-friendly menu created by Rapicavoli shows off his signature creativity with items like croqueta ‘buns’ made with Jupiña hoisin, cucumber, sesame and served in a bahn mi; churrasco tiradito with salsa anticucho; timba frita made with crispy queso blanco, guava, and Spanglish sauce; and ‘arroz con pollo’ made with creamy rice, peas, crispy chicken, and sofrito. The cocktails are as creative as they are Instagram-worthy. Think drinks like the cafecito Old Fashioned that is served in a cafetera, or the Spanglish and Chill, a tequila-based cocktail with strawberry infused sweet vermouth, tangerine, lemon, and pink peppercorn, served in a “popcorn bag” topped with caramel […]

James Beard award-winning chef and mega-restauranteur, Michael Schwartz, announced that his latest restaurant will be a delivery only deli dubbed Schwartz’s Genuine Deli, launching this Thursday, October 10, on UberEats, with delivery coming soon to platforms like DoorDash and Postmates. “It’s no surprise we’ve been making bagels and brining and smoking our own pastrami for years at Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink so I thought, why stop there?” notes Schwartz. “I think we’ve always had a deli we just didn’t package it that way. Now with our commissary kitchen dialed in over these past few years it’s time to turn it out. And don’t forget the pickle!” The menu is built around Schwartz’s favorites and classic deli fare. Highlights include “Overstuffed Sandwiches” served on rye with a half a sour pickle and filled with options like hot pastrami, roasted turkey, or a pastrami-turkey combo. Guests can opt to “make it special” by adding Russian dressing and coleslaw for $3 more. Chicken salad, egg salad, and tuna salad are served as sandwiches or in three-scoop mix-and-match platters, and the pastrami, turkey, and all salads are also available priced by the pound.

Balloo, the chef-partner at longtime Miami restaurant, SUGARCANE raw bar grill, has ventured out on his own with a new, independent eatery, Balloo: Modern Home Cooking (19 SE 2nd Avenue). Housed inside The Ingraham Building in Downtown Miami, the restaurant is a partnership between Balloo, award-winning bartenders Gabriel Orta and Elad Zvi of Bar Lab, and real estate investor Shai Ben-Am. The cuisine and the space is an ode to Balloo’s Chinese-Indian-Trinidadian heritage, and the concise menu features unique mashups of these different cuisines. Think items like roasted curry calabaza served with roti, burnt cabbage tossed with crispy pork, Spam fried rice with burnt pineapple, a Trini spiced oxtail served with pigeon peas and rice, curry goat, and Chili crab tteokbokki (a spicy rice cake). Spice in all its varieties is certainly the star of the menu, and the restaurant boasts three different hot sauces to serve with the dishes called wing wa, which also happens to be Balloo’s name in Chinese. Drinks stay simple with a small selection of wine and beers, and some clever creations like kombucha and Micheladas by the Bar Lab team, who’s forthcoming wine bar Margot will be located right next to the restaurant.

“Engrossing and incisive. Performances simply take the breath away.” – Sarah Crompton, WhatsOnStage “Timely, very moving and beautifully delivered by the superb Alex Jennings and Lindsay Duncan.” – Sarah Hemming, Financial Times See two-time Olivier Award winners, Lindsay Duncan (Birdman, About Time) and Alex Jennings (The Lady in the Van, The Queen), in this brand-new play by Simon Wood, broadcast live from the National Theatre in London.

Diana has a stinking hangover, a fox is destroying the garden, and secrets are being dug up all over the place.

Opens December 6 “The Aeronauts achieves impressive elevation as a bracing and sympathetic account of two early and very different aviators who together reached literal new heights in a perilous field of endeavor.” – Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter In 1862, daredevil balloon pilot Amelia Wren (Felicity Jones) teams up with pioneering meteorologist James Glaisher (Eddie Redmayne) to advance human knowledge of the weather and fly higher than anyone in history. But they face physical and emotional challenges in the thin air, as the ascent becomes a struggle for survival. Redmayne and Jones earned an Oscar and an Oscar nomination respectively for The Theory of Everything in 2014. And director Tom Harper (Wild Rose) transmutes a real-life story into the wonder-filled adventure of the season. The Gables Cinema is the only art cinema in the southeastern United States equipped to screen films in 70mm, the high-resolution format that became synonymous with the medium’s epics and films of exceptional visual grandeur. To see a film projected in this format is to see them in their full splendor, with pristine image and detailed sound. New screenings are added throughout the year.
