From Bakehouse to Art House

If you’re involved or very interested in the art world in Miami, you know the Bakehouse Miami. And if you aren’t, you could think it’s a bakery. Actually, it was one of the first industrialized bakeries in Miami along with Holsum. Since 1985 the Art-Deco era building has been serving artists with studios and others who have access to using the organization’s dedicated spaces for making art. You may also buy directly from the artists there.  If you have any interest in art, you won’t want to miss a visit for one of their quarterly Open Studio evenings, where guests can visit all of the artists in their spaces.  They also offer classes, exhibits, and the space can be visited every day.

AD LIB, Tops in the Gables

AD LIB Coral Gables is unlike any other restaurant I’ve been to in Miami of late. It reminded me of the restaurant of an exclusive club of the low key, well heeled. The cuisine is delicious and refined under the direction of Chef Patrick Rebholz and two time James Beard finalist Executive Pastry Chef Hedy Goldsmith. The service is quietly professional, decor comfortable and almost soothing, and we had no trouble having a conversation. A wonderful place for lunch with a deal too.

Ultra Lounge Mynt Restaurant: Myn-Tu

It’s rare one finds a very good restaurant in a club or lounge. And rarer, that it’s good enough to be a “go to” destination in itself.  Such is Myn-Tu, a restaurant with a club like decor, what they call a “dinner party experience” with delicious French Vietnamese food. It’s an extension of iconic ultra-lounge Mynt.  Executive Chef Meryl Villacorta and Sushi Master Seiya Noborikawa head up the kitchen, with a background of gold standard spots including Nobu, Blue Ribbon and Sugarcane.
