Miami's Best Eats and Drinks This Weekend

Categories: Weekend Guide

Indeed, this counts as carb loading.
As professional eaters, we pride ourselves on the ability to include food in every occasion. Wedding? We keep the canapes classy. School bake sale? The kids love our maldon salt chocolate cookies the best. Miami Marathon?

The ultimate excuse for a carb load -- whether you're running or not.

So if you're running in this weekend's marathon, go get 'em, kid. And if you're not, let's eat.

Because god knows we can win a competition in that.

Scarpetta burrata and heirloom tomato salad.
The folks at the Fontainebleau have marathon runners in mind and created a carb-up menu for the two days before the race. When we were wee tots in school, our rowing coaches made sure to stuff pasta, fibrous vegetables and lots of water down our throats for the race. So rest assured, Scarpetta's menu it legit. It's prix fixe and costs just $35 bucks for three courses. Some of the menu items include raw yellowtail with marinated onions and baby greens and butternut squash raviolini with veal cheeks and broccoli rabe pesto. The full menu can be viewed here and you can reserve your tables for both nights here.

Of course, if a three-course meal won't do it for you, you can always do the carb loading on your own.
