Norman's 180, from famed chef Norman Van Aken, officially launches in Coral Gables on Tuesday, June 29, after a round of friends and family and media tastings. Expect dishes like steamed Manila clams with kabocha pot stickers, speckled soy butter and melon; pho bo with noodles, beef ribs and herbs; striped bass with black eyed peas, surrey sausage and cider creamed tomatoes; fried chicken with collards and mashed potatoes; and Homestead corn served Mexican style. There will also be charcuterie platters, burgers, homemade pate, pizza and flatbreads.
On a more casual scale, Burger & Beer Joint hits Mary Brickell Village the week of July 5. Their adjacent sports bar will start broadcasting baseball games and the like by the end of July. Look for a very tatted crew to serve you your turkey burgers at B & B Brickell, where the fare will echo the original South Beach location. Says co-owner Buzzy Sklar of their service philosophy, "We look for people with great service skills. We have a fine dining mentality for a $12 burger."
