Uva 69 Miami

A few weeks ago looking for a new place to have Saturday breakfast at, my fiance and I decided to trust The New Times and go check out the croissants at Uva. We had croissants and their breakfast and thought it was what I like to call the yomybbb... "bueno, bonito y barato." Good, cute and cheap. The croissant was so yummy and the crowd was lovely.Nice to be over the bridge ;-) Such a cute neighborhood spot. We decided to go again, several times, to make sure. The homemade breads and pastries have not disappointed us and that almond croissant....oh boy.

I just wanted to share and ask you guys, how are the lunch and dinners there? Menu doesn't seem all that much...

Have a good one!

      Uva's at 69th and Biscayne, on the west side of the street. Much construction on Biscayne right now unfortunately.

      Uva 69
      6900 Biscayne Blvd, Miami, FL 33138

      Don't let construction stop you, though. UVA 69 is one of my favorite places. I've never been there for lunch but I've had dinner there numerous time and I love it. Their sandwiches are great. My favorites are the Milano (prosciutto and mozarella) and the Minuta (beer battered Mahi). Their fig crostini is good, so is their cheese platter. The best dish I've tried there, however, is their pork medallion entree, which consists of two grilled pork medallions, congri risotto, avocado salad and plantain fritters, which are stuffed with cheese. It's a large entree but it's worth trying. You'll love the sauce on the pork too. Let me know what you think.

      PS: Their sangria is pretty good.

        They have a salmon dish with what seems to be a sweet potato/ boniato mash that is delectable. I've had wonderful dining experiences there.

          The owners stayed open late (a little past curfew) after Wilma because there were a few people still in line that hadn't gotten served. The cops let them off until everyone had gotten their food. It's the type of neighborhood place every neighborhood should have. Luckily, it IS my neighborhood.
