Bianco Gelato -- organic, authentic gelato comes to Coconut Grove.
Summer in Miami means long sun-scorching days and humid nights. Most of us hibernate in our air conditioned dens, coming out to brave the elements only for something essential -- like freshly made, authentic Italian gelato made with organic ingredients.

Bianco Gelato, opening today in Coconut Grove, is providing a delicious and healthful way to cool off.

Ticety Iced Tea Bar opens next week.
Everyone knows that Miami is a coffee-lover's paradise. You can get a solid cafecito in just about any neighborhood. What Miami really lacks is a solid tea presence -- with the exception of Teavana, there aren't a ton of places in South Florida that focus exclusively on tea. European founders Valerie Partigianone, Stephane Weyders, and Damien Ceulemans of Ticety Iced Tea Bar are looking to change that with a new tea lounge opening next week on Miracle Mile.

"Market research shows that people love iced tea, and we wanted to bring it somewhere hot," said France-native Ceulemans. "We fell in love with Coral Gables because it reminds us of a European city."

Latin House: Chefs Talk Sangria Don Chu and New Pines Location

The "Goddess of Sangria," Maria Rita Rivera.
If you've ventured to Latin House Burger & Taco Bar, we hope you've ordered the sangria. Since January 2013, Latin House has been the proud sole purveyor of Sangria Don Chu, a tasty libation made weekly by Maria Rita Rivera. Originally a "stalker" of chef Michell Sanchez's Latin House food truck (that's what Sanchez lovingly calls the most loyal fans), Rivera befriended Chef M and he became a great ally for her now-growing sangria business.

Short Order sat down with Rivera over a glass (or two) of sangria to talk about her boozy biz and plans for the future. And Chef M stopped by to reveal news about a second Latin House Burger & Taco Bar, set to open soon in Pembroke Pines.

Drink like a Belgian.
What do you know about Belgian cuisine? Chances are not much. Well, with the opening of Bistro BE in Brickell last Friday, you'll be able to eat your way through the country well known for its waffles.

Short Order was invited to check out Bistro BE's 100 percent Belgian fare and extensive beer selection, which features 70 brews that are, yep, all Belgian. Even the table next to ours had a Belgian soccer player who was bringing his teammates to get a taste of home.

Cantina La Veinte opens next Monday the Icon
Seems like Miami is hungry for high-end Mexican food. At least that's what the folks behind Cantina La Veinte think. Part of Cinbersol Group, which has opened more than 30 concepts in Mexico, this location is Cantina La Veinte's first U.S. outpost (the other three are all in Mexico City).

Like the restaurant, the menu is grand. There are stuffed chilies, salads, earthy appetizers, ceviche, colossal soup bowls, and other seafood. There's also plenty of Mexican objets d'art for purchase.
