All that is right in the world.
The countdown has officially begun. It is T-minus ten days until Miami gets a helluva lot cheesier when Ms. Cheezious finally opens its brick-and-mortar location in the MiMo District. Brian Mullins, Fatima Mullins, and M. Christian Dickens are the trio behind the roving grilled-cheese truck, and they've been hard at work testing recipes, curing bacon, and generally getting ready for the next phase of the grilled-cheese revolution.

It begins with their newest menu item: the Ms. Cheezious patty melt.

Moye in Brickell Starts Delivery Service and Happy Hour

Photo by Carla Torres
If you happen to live in the zip codes of 33129, 33130, and 33131, you're in luck. Moye, which opened in late October, wants to help out the Brickell area with delivery.

"With all the construction and traffic especially during lunch time we thought what better way for people to try our food." Once people have been able to taste the food, Moye expects they will be drawn back to the restaurant. The lack of foot traffic and construction has limited the volume of customers.

Biscayne Diner to Reopen With Big-Name Chef

Biscayne Diner is getting an upgrade.
We've all been there: buzzing after a long night of drinking and starved for some home-style cooking, only to end up at Taco Bell or Checker's or maybe even Denny's. Get ready to wave goodbye to late nights of processed foods and bad decisions when Biscayne Diner opens for business at the end of the month.

The venture of husband and wife Tara Nicosia and Alfredo Alvarez, Biscayne Diner will proffer traditional diner fair (think burgers and shakes) and unorthodox grub (fresh juices and hearty salads) 24 hours a day. 'Cause it ain't a real diner unless it's open 'round the clock.

It's gonna be bananas.

The lease was signed in 2003, but tomorrow is the day your organic and gluten-free dreams come true. Short Order got the chance to tour the 41,000-square-foot Whole Foods Market in downtown. It has some distinct Miami flair, selling made-to-order churros, croquetas, and flan from Versailles, brew from Funky Buddha, and cold-pressed juices from Jugofresh.

The store opens to the public tomorrow at 8:45 a.m. with a bread-breaking ceremony featuring the mayor. The first 500 customers in line opening day will receive mystery gift cards, valued at $5, $10, $20, or $50, with one lucky shopper getting a gift card valued at $500.

Pop-up dinners and cooking classes will be part of Schnebly's roster of culinary events.
Dewey LoSasso' appointment as culinary director at Schnebly Redland's Winery is the culmination of years of friendship.

The chef, who has worked at kitchens such as the Forge and his own North 110, says he and winery founder Peter Schnebly have been toying with the idea of working together for a decade. "Peter and I have been friends for 11 years and have always talked about doing something like this that is literally farm-to-table. It's actually more like farm-to-farm!"

The Diner en Blanc event held outside Manhattan's Lincoln Center.
On December 9, rain or shine, Miami will become the 14th American city to host a Dîner en Blanc. Picture this: A thousand people dressed in head-to-toe white will be transported to an unknown landmark location where they will dine and drink to live music. Afterward, they'll dance and socialize till the trumpet call indicates the end of the night, when they'll clean up, pack up, and head out.

To attend the popular event, they'll have to pay $35 and bring their own gourmet food; white tables, chairs, and tablecloths; as well as china and silverware (paper plates and plastic utensils are a no-no).

Brad Kilgore to Open Alter in Wynwood; Pop-Up at Miam Cafe Begins Tomorrow

Bradley Kilgore popping up in Wynwood for good.
If the movie Chef taught us anything, it's that every chef yearns for the creative freedom to run a kitchen. The film also predicted the next trend in the food industry, at least in Miami: food bloggers partnering with chefs for their first solo endeavor.

Blue Collar's Danny Serfer opened Mignonette with friend and blogger Ryan Roman, and come summer 2015, Bachour Bakery & Cafe will bring famed J&G Grill pastry chef Antonio Bachour's sweets to Brickell with the help and financial backing of blogger Javier Ramirez (AKA GourmandJ) and chef Henry Hane.

Striking a trifecta, J&G Grill chef de cuisine Brad Kilgore recently announced his departure from the Jean-Georges Bal Harbour outpost to open Alter with Ramirez and wine enthusiast Leo Monterrey. The progressive American restaurant in the heart of Wynwood is set to open in February. Its first service, however, will take place this Thursday, November 20, at Miam Café.
