According to Eater :
“Describing itself as “a modern take on the classic American diner” it features traditional diner grub with a twist by Executive Chef Michael Castino, who has done stints at Estiatorio Milos by Costas Spiliadis, Pride & Joy and Tavern on the Green in NYC. In true diner fashion plenty of all-day-breakfast options are available like nutmeg and bourbon French toast, specialty omelets and a chicken and waffle club sandwich. And with an all-day menu comes an all-day drink menu, created by Vanessa Hulsey formerly of Broken Shaker and 27, that features handcrafted cocktails, wines and a large craft beer selection.” written by Olee Fowler.
According to New Times :
“The casual eatery looks less like a typical greasy spoon and more like a cozy sanctuary you’d find in trendy country-chic hot spots like Charleston or Asheville. That’s not to say you won’t find classic diner food — it just means you’ll enjoy your meal in a homey setting. After all, when was the last time you had your morning eggs in a diner with a fireplace mantel and bookshelves? Wynwood Diner is divided into three distinct spaces, each with a unique vibe. Jerry Böck, the general manager and a Holland native, saw the need for a beautiful venue with a cool vibe. “I am happy to be in a space that merges the charming European café culture with a cool, nostalgic vibe of an American diner.” Böck’s experience on the Miami dining scene includes Cecconi’s, Prime Italian, Nikki Beach, and Prime One Twelve.” written by Laine Doss.
According to Miami.com :
“The diner serves premium natural beef, nitrate-free pork and all-natural chicken and eggs, along with daily baked bread by Zak the Baker and coffee by Relentless Roasters. Executive chef Michael Castino has worked at Estiatorio Milos, Pride & Joy and Tavern on the Green in NYC. Wynwood Diner’s cocktail menu was created by Broken Shaker and 27 alum Vanessa Hulsey. ” written by Lesley Abravanel.
According to Urban Daddy :
“Long time coming, this place. And your patience has paid off. Because now you’ve got a spot with plenty of cozy nooks to kick back with some bourbon in. And it’s got that Old-Florida-living-room vibe. You know the one. The potted greenery. The black-and-white palm frond wallpaper. The fireplace with a book-and-candelabra-strewn mantel. But then there’s that wraparound diner counter right over there, so… Food. Yeah. Definitely do that here. They’ve got pork belly omelets and chicken-and-waffle club sandwiches whipped up by a Tavern on the Green vet. The type of sustenance that solidly accompanies a late-late Saturday night. (They’ll be open until 3am starting next weekend.)”
According to Yelp :
“We were lucky enough to get a peek before they open on Friday. I have to say I think this may be my favorite new restaurant. The menu has hints of a classic diner with a Miami flare. To my surprise, the appetizer not to miss no matter what is the truffle fries. They are definitely addictive. The fried heirloom tomatoes were the perfect balance of crunch and acidity. Brussels sprouts never tasted as good as they do here. Deviled eggs were divine. The waffles were light and tasty. The fried chicken was crunchy and delicious. It was accompanied by an incredible creamed kale that I still can’t stop remembering. The southern fried steak reminded me of being back in the south.
The craft cocktail menu was a real treat. I had the peach cobbler old fashioned. This is maybe one of the coolest hangout bars in town. The ambiance is totally on point. Dress lightly because the Ac needs a little help. You definitely want to experience this place as soon as you can.” written by Donald (5 Stars).
