No more of these, please.
If you and a spouse/mate/lover/friend head out for dinner, sometimes it ain't easy. As the plates keep landing on your table for two, dinner becomes a game of Jenga. The half-eaten bowl of Brussels sprouts balances at the table's edge. A slight reach for a morsel of meat risks sending a $12 cocktail flying.

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.

Rincon Escondido: Still Spanish but With a Dash of Argentine Influence

Photos by Carla Torres
Cheese bombs. Literally.
It's not atypical for restaurants to change ownership. It is, however, unusual for restaurants to leave most of the previous furnishings and menu items in place after such a change takes effect. Such is the case with Rincon Escondido, Edgewater's hidden Spanish gem.

Though Rincon Escondido has been serving authentic Spanish tapas since 2011, its new Argentine owner has planted some of his roots in the menu. There's still gazpacho and gambas al ajillo (which have been left pretty much untouched), but meatballs have an Argentine twist in the sauce, and for dessert, choco tarta has the consistency of an alfajor but with layers of chocolate.

Vegan Empanadas at Lincoln Road, Coconut Grove Farmer's Markets

Photos by Hannah Sentenac
The widespread availability of empanadas is one of many reasons to love Miami. You can find them at gas stations, farmer's markets, fast casual chains -- everywhere and anywhere. Sadly, most empanadas aren't vegan-friendly, thanks to the addition of egg and butter in the dough.

Luckily, plant-based empanada lovers have a new spot to stock up on this savory pastry. Chef Empanadas (AKA CE Catering Delights) is selling scrumptious vegan empanadas at the Lincoln Road Farmer's Market every Sunday, and at the Coconut Grove Organic Market every Saturday.

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.
