Unfortunately, people don't just stumble into DB Bistro Moderne. We say "unfortunately" because aside from the sleek yet simple Mad Men-esque décor, the Michael Mann view, and the engaging and knowledgeable staff, DB Bistro does not play around when it comes to food and drink.
Set inside the southeast corner of the JW Marriot Marquis in downtown Miami, DB Bistro Moderne is somewhat out of sight, even if you're looking for it. Though its location makes it more difficult for locals to happen upon it, it also adds to DB's allure.
Imagine sitting inside a quiet, street-level room, its wall-to-wall windows exposing the exterior landscape of surrounding skyscrapers, while you sip high-quality Scotch -- somehow removed and of this world at the same time. That's what DB offers.
While menu prices tend to be toward the higher end of the scale, the budget conscious can still enjoy the upscale vibe. Cocktails normally run between $12 and $15, but there is an affordable happy hour as well as a new pairing concept every Wednesday, when you can get a cocktail and an appetizer for only $15. We were invited to try the new pairings (pairings will change periodically) as well as the happy hour (review next week) and were given a recipe to share with Short Order readers.
Follow the jump for our take on the bistro's current pairings and for a cocktail recipe. Salud!More »

Well, not really. Hugo Chávez may have personified heartache and headache to millions of Venezuelan citizens, immigrants, and their U.S.-born descendants, but to say we're celebrating his demise would be horrifically offensive.
However, the socialist leader's death this afternoon cannot go without recognition, be it with excitement or sympathy. After all, this evening marks the beginning of a new hope for the people of Venezuela and every country that deals with it.
That being said, a handful of Miami restaurants are serving specials and happy hours to celebrate the end to his tumultuous rule and hopeful road to prosperity.More »
Come March, memories of the South Beach Wine & Fodd Festival (SOBEWFF) will be fading fast -- and you'll need some new bacchanalia to look forward to. Luckily, the third annual Taste of Brickell Food and Wine Festival is bringing eats, drinks, and entertainment to the Miami Circle on March 23 and 24.
And now you can score a set of VIP couple's tickets to the shindig for half price. Hint: This makes a sweet surprise for your foodie Valentine -- plus, if you're feeling insecure about your relationship status, this means he/she is likely to stick around for at least another six weeks.More »
