About the restaurant
Established in 2012 as Miami's premier destination for contemporary comfort, Blue Collar is the labor of love from Chef Daniel Serfer ( New Times Best chef 2015), a Miami native. We offer an unprecedented selection of amazing meats and vegetables, served from a menu that allows you to customize your plate exactly how you want it. If you'd like to have a gut busting indulgent cheat meal, we got you. At the same time if you wanna keep it super light or even vegetarian/vegan, we can cover that too. Rounding out the menu is an exceptional selection of craft beers, and fine wines. Save room for dessert, our Heath Bar and Butterscotch bread pudding is legendary.

Blue Collar is the perfect neighborhood comfort food spot in the Mimo area. A large bowl of lentil soup could not have been a more perfect way to start on a rainy Miami night. Coupled with that incredible cornbread, we could have been fully satisfied. However we did not stop and ordered the braised pork shoulder and the chicken parmesan for our entree's. Both selections were perfectly suited to the weather and our appetites. Feeling all warm and fuzzy after that meal replaced the ability to even think about a sweet after dinner treat, but will definitely leave room on our next visit. Speaking of room, the current dining space is a bit tight and the exhaust system could be improved as there seemed to be an overabundance of smokiness in the air. Lucky for us, our understanding is that within the next few weeks, Blue Collar is moving their West of Biscayne Blvd location to directly across the street to the East side. The new location will be much larger and will most likely have an enhanced exhaust system, thus resolving the only issues currently faced by diners. Cannot wait to enjoy the Blue Collar cuisine in the new digs as we definitely will return again.

The food is always good and consistent. Bazille has on top the best red sangria in town. The noise level is a bit unfortunate

Wonderful time at CRAFT. We had a family dinner here and was very pleased with the food and service. Everything we ordered was delicious. From the pizzas to the sandwiches to the salads our meals were fresh and prepared promptly. Pizza was one of the best I've had in a while and the salads incredible. We will definitely be back.

About the restaurant
Ours is a story only Miami can tell. It’s about lands far away but not forgotten, a culture we’re building as we put down roots, and the heights we can reach. Executive Chef and Owner Michael Beltran’s vision — shaped by passion for his Cuban heritage, devotion to championing Miami ingredients and tradition, and commitment to classic French technique — guides one of the city’s most talented restaurant teams in every dish, every drink, every moment at Ariete.

Most important, though, is that you experience delicious food. That you escape. That you feel welcome in our home. Take a ride through a tasting menu or experience our canard à la presse in our dining room. Join us at the bar for our Florida Orange and a cocktail.

From our corner of Coconut Grove, we’ve sent a message: Miami has a place at the global culinary table. In 2022, we put a Michelin Star on the wall. The world is listening.

This is Miami’s food story. We invite you to join us in writing the next chapter.

Michelin star cuisine. What else can you ask for? Somewhat overpriced but you get first class service and food.

About the restaurant
**Note: we reserve tables for walk-ins. If you can’t find your preferred time, feel free to join us in person.**

This tavern is certainly an ode to Florida located in Shenandoah – one of the oldest neighborhoods in the City of Miami – utilizing local ingredients in the menu and showcasing a beautiful Blue Marlin mounted above the bar. With our walls adorned with taxidermy, you would not expect to see a grand piano and to also enjoy a decadent meal with cocktails.

Teamed up with Chef Michael Beltran, is seasoned Chef Kris Huseby, the new executive chef for the property. Chefs Beltran and Huseby have a history of collaboration – previously working together in one of Miami’s best restaurants. The duo has created a superb menu for The Gibson Room.

We can always count on the Gibson Room for their consistency! Last night’s meal did not disappoint. Great food (tamal and burger are amazing), great ambience, and great service. Can’t ask for more.

We went on a Saturday night and the place was almost empty but it was very nicely decorated, food was really good. We received great service from everyone, but our waitress Maria was very nice and attentive. The old fashioned was good.

About the restaurant
Since Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink first opened in the Miami Design District in spring of 2007, diners have come to embrace and crave its refreshing combination of laid-back atmosphere and seriously good food, a neighborhood bistro that is the ultimate showcase for the type of cuisine that chef/owner Michael Schwartz does best – homemade, unpretentious, delectable, with an emphasis on great local ingredients. Bon Appétit Magazine wrote in 2022 "Michael's Genuine is refreshingly approachable yet upscale, offering guests a true neighborhood gem where you can sit back, relax, and enjoy simple, consistently delicious dishes." In 2022, the first Florida MICHELIN Guide honored the restaurant with a Bib Gourmand awards.

Please call for our corkage and cake policies and fees.
