The duo behind Sardinia Enoteca and the soon to open Moye
Moye, the latest restaurant concept from Sardinia Enoteca owners Tony Gallo and Pietro Vardeu, is set to open its doors in Brickell this Tuesday, October 21, bringing Apulian cuisine to the neighborhood.

If you're wondering what Apulian cuisine is, chances are you're not the only one. To educate diners on the regional classic Italian fare from Puglia, Pietro and Gallo have developed a menu heavy in olive oil -- the ingredient Puglia is most known for -- and that take cues from the Moye outposts in Milan and Florence.

Little Bread Cuban Sandwich Co. to Open in Little Havana

Little Bread via Facebook
Little Bread. Classic Cuban, updated.
If Chicago has the hot dog and New York has the mile-high pastrami sandwich on rye, Miami's sandwich is the Cuban. (Though Tampa has its own claims on the lunchtime treat.)

The origins of the Cuban date back to the late 1800s when it was the favorite midday meal of Cuban workers in cigar factories and sugar cane fields. When they migrated to the United States, they took their beloved sandwich with them.
