No Name Chinese Restaurant

Grass Fed Tenderloin, Oyster Sauce, Sesame Seeds, Broccoli Rabe and Garlic, Bib Lettuce

 

By Eleanor Hoh

No Name Chinese was started by frustrated Chinese food lovers, Heath Porter and Craig DeWald, partners from Coral Gables’ Uvaggio Bar & Restaurant fame.  Together with Colombian Executive Chef, Pablo Zitzmann and pastry chef and wife, Natalia Atuesta, they’ve made us proud. Anyone who has lived where there’s good Chinese food laments about Miami’s lack of it and I couldn’t agree more. No Name Chinese set out to turn that around and succeeded with flying colors.

If I were to give the formula  for a  successful restaurant in Miami I’d say good or very good food,  a party atmosphere (or if not party, at least very “buzzy”), and attractive décor.

Witness the staying power – no small thing in this town – of Baoli, Bagatelle, Zuma, and then there’s the relatively new La Petite Maison. Now there’s a new  addition to the list from London that promises to be a serious hot spot – Chotto Matte Miami . Chotto Matte is high power – the management and culinary team, the eye popping décor, and the elaborate menu offerings. Read Full Post & Comments »

We’ve passed by La Moderna Miami Italian Restaurant & Cocktail Bar  numerous times. There’s always a good sized crowd, especially at the bar, so we decided to see what the appeal was and booked dinner. It’s a neighborhood favorite— plus it gets its share of Italians, always a good sign.  Read Full Post & Comments »
