OTC Turns 2 Friday: $5 Burgers, Free Growlers, and Wynwood Beer

This baby can be yours for $5 this Friday.
It's hard to believe that in just two days, OTC will celebrate its second anniversary. I remember stumbling into the Brickell eatery and devouring a plate of chicken 'n' waffles like it was yesterday.

The comfort-food-and-craft-beer spot started as an over-the-counter joint proffering short ribs, Brie grilled cheese, and foie gras mousse from a Tap 42 sous-chef. Now it's a full-service gourmet neighborhood joint serving 63-degree eggs and tuna poke by former Azul executive chef Jacob Anaya.

If there's something that hasn't changed, it's that OTC is still a place to get a good burger and cold craft beer you likely won't get elsewhere (Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA, anyone?). Which is why owner Michael Sullivan is celebrating OTC's second birthday by offering $5 burgers all day and free growlers with your choice of craft beer, which include some special-release taps.

Burgers & Bordeaux at DB Bistro: A Meal for the Price of a Sandwich

The Original DB Burger in all its glory.
Miamians look forward to October for many reasons. It means the weather finally begins to cool. It's an excuse to indulge in pumpkin everything. And of course there's All Hallows' Eve and its festivities, candy, booze, and haunted houses.

There's another reason to love the tenth month: foie gras and braised short rib on a Parmesan bun. It's the Original DB Burger, which before the burger craze began was the most expensive of its kind in the nation.

Clocking in at $35, the Original DB Burger doesn't come cheap, but during October, you can get the famed sandwich with an appetizer, dessert, and glass of Bordeaux for $39 at DB Bistro Moderne. If there were ever a deal, this is it.

Pizza Capricciosa
Eating out is fantastic but unless your are ingesting poison from the fast food industry, it can be prohibitively expensive. While Miami Spice succeeds in making our most luxurious restaurants "affordable" for a couple months, it does nothing to address the limited access Miamians have to quality food at reasonable prices.

Soyka serves a wide array of American comfort food and has always maintained a solid reputation for delivering good food at truly sensible prices. They have gone even a step further in the value chain with an Italian menu served only on Mondays. Patrons can dine on large plates of their Italian favorites for only $10. They can choose from various types of pasta and pizzas as well as meat lasagna and both chicken and eggplant parmesan.
