Lester's New Menu Stars Orange-Infused Java and Housemade Baba Ghanoush
When we got word that Lester's, Wynwood's destination for beer, books, wine, espresso, and magazines was launching an expanded small bites menu, it seemed too good to be true. Owner Daniel Milewski's spot was already one of the best places to chill out with a book in Miami, but he felt something was missing in terms of edible ingredients, so he sought out food and beverage professional Chris Hudnall.

A place of exchanging ideas, and creating ideas, Lester's is a cultural meeting hub for artists, writers, and pretty much anyone who steps into Wynwood. While great ideas can be made perusing through books and magazines after having had a couple of coffees, beers, or wines, an empty stomach is no way to work. Enter Lester's upping their eats to small bites, hot-pressed sandwiches and housemade sodas. Don't worry, the Guatemalan coffee from Daniel's uncle Ricardo isn't going anywhere.
The Dippin' trio features house made hummus, baba ghanoush and tsatziki with pita chips for just $6. The baba ghanoush is excellent in taste, texture, and heat. They should make these by the pint and sell them.
Lester's is getting cheesy with its cured meat and cheese selection that features manchego, drunken goat cheese, and espresso rubbed chorizo. Some kalamata olives act as a sidekick. ($14)
Bloody Valentine cocktail combines strawberry infused sweet vermouth, rosemary, lime, honey, and shipyard export for a drink that will have anyone thinking clearly ($8).
