How is Charcuterie for dinner?

Anything notable on Biscayne or the Design District besides Grass and The District?

  1. In the 50's and Biscayne is OLA which is upscale Latin. A few blocks north is Soyka which is kind of like food you'd find anywhere.
    In the 60's there's UVA which is a casual Medit. place. Very laid back and casual and great food. A block up there's Casa Toscana with an emphasis on Casa (it's smaller than my house). Good basic Italian food. Finally there's Dogma for hot dogs. Don't ask, just go.
    I went to the District a few months ago and it was so bad I haven't gone back. There's also a wine bar called D'vine District on NE 2nd, but I haven't been.

      Renaisa (indian), Citronelle (carribean), Andiamo (pizza) are all highly regarded but I have never been and are all in the area you described.

      OT: Dogma is opening really soon on the beach on 15th and Washington, yay!!!!

        God, how I miss Dogma. My husband came home one night with dinner from Dogma and I was officially hooked. Jeez, who knew a humble hot dog could be raised to such heights? Yay for Dogma! I read that they were opening a second Dogma over near the beach. We moved to NC last year and I am missing Miami so much, I could die! :(

          dogma just opened in south beach 5/17 with a slow opening.15th and washington i believe,in the opld sbarro's location just north of kafka bookstore and internet cafe.Had theiir chili,garlic fries,as well as the pushcart style hot dog and their mint flavored lemonade..I wish them continued success.

      2. Uva 69 on Biscayne and 69th! Simple panini, cheap. Wine bar too.

        1. AVOID SOYKA! Terrible service, overcooked pasta and veggies and undercooked tough meat. Sauce should be thought of as slop in order to eat. What a waste! Bad Miami dining at its worst. Ohh but it has a funky vibe for those diners in this area who haven't taste.

          Speaking of Dogma, you will be better off there than Soyka! At least you know what you are getting - a good hotdog as opposed to being ripped off.
