Chef-Owner Alfredo Patino celebrates fresh local market approach with his "Roadside European Cuisine". In a cosmopolitan, industrious setting in Miami’s neighboring art district, bin no. 18 is a popular stop for pre- and post- Art Center shows and gallery walks. With its contemporary interpretation of casual meets chic, the European bistro explores a spectrum of artisan dishes composed with a purpose. Driven to present a true taste of the Riviera urban cuisine, Chef's weekend menus experiment with seasonal flavors to bring out the ones that tantalize us the most. The well-designed beer and wine bins boast a variety of juice that is top-ranked in quality and value. Hanging Chandeliers, concrete slabs over wine barrels serve as communal tables' ideal for sharing the cheese and charcuterie menus. We welcome you to sense a unique culinary art scene.
Service was exceptional, we were the only guests when we visited which was a shame; I had the bolognese and my girlfriend had the scallops, my meal was flawless but my girlfriend found the scallops over cooked but otherwise delicious.
This turned out to be a really enjoyable dinner. The restaurant was down the street from our hotel and well worth the walk. The food was fresh, flavorful, and well prepared. We found the service to be friendly and well timed.
