During the craziness that was Art Basel 2015, pastry chef extraordinaire Dominique Ansel hosted a “surprise” pop-up soft serve window a The Setai Miami Beach serving two frozen yogurt creations. The first was a Caramel Stout Soft Serve with Chocolate “Caviar” and Sea Salt Brownie and the second was his cult-favorite Burrata Soft Serve, Balsamic Caramel, Confit Strawberry and Microbasil, both served in hand-rolled honey tuile cones. Ansel sat with Chat Chow TV during the Basel madness to tell us more about the pop-up and some of his favorite sweet creations.

Like most people in Miami, we’ve been awaiting the arrival of NaiYaRa for some time now – and couldn’t wait to check it out when it opened up late last month. The brainchild of Chef Piyarat Arreeratn, also known as Chef Bee, and his mother, it features eclectic menu of Thai street cuisine and Japanese specialties for which he is known for at his other restaurant, Oishi Thai, in North Miami.

There’s no denying that one of the best things to do on the weekend is to hit up a tasty brunch, and Fooq’s new Saturday-only brunch certainly didn’t disappoint. Launched during Art Basel, it showcase a variety of unique homestyle dishes from its new executive chef Bryan Rojas.

Apeiro Kitchen & Bar, the Mediterranean restaurant and bar from chef and co-owner David Blonsky, opened in Delray earlier this year and was quickly received by locals and critics, so when it opened its outpost in Midtown Miami recently, we knew we had to go check it out.

Last Fall, Chicago’s popular Siena Tavern opened its doors on Miami Beach in the iconic China Grill building. At the helm of the restaurant is the ever-charming Top Chef alum Fabio Viviani, who sat down with Chat Chow TV to talk all about Siena Tavern Miami location and its menu.

Viviani has been working in kitchens since he was 11 years old in his native Italy. By the time he was 28 he was the owner of five different restaurants when he decided to sell them all and come to America. Since then he has opened several successful restaurants throughout the country and has become a well-recognized and well-liked chef.

When Viviani and his partners decided bring the Siena Tavern concept to Miami, the restaurant team partnered up with local vendors like Bar Lab and Wynwood Brewing to help create the bar program. As for the menu, Viviani tells Chat Chow that he enlists his friends, family and co-workers to help narrow down the menu from 300 dishes to 35 “cravers.”

As for what deems a dish as a “craver” he notes, “we like to have the ‘wow’ kind of dishes, because if I can’t get the reaction where you want to come back for more there is some more work to do on it.”

Some of the most popular “cravers” on the menu are the house-made pastas, octopus, pizza and a meatball that’s so beloved it has it’s own Twitter account.

Curious how Viviani feels about taking over the legendary space? Or why dining is different in Miami versus Chicago? Find out those things and more in the video above.

The Setai, Miami Beach has been a staple on South Beach since its opening 10 years ago. Since then it has featured several restaurants, but for its 10th anniversary the award-winning property opened a brand new concept, Jaya, featuring regional specialties from Southeast and Northern Asian cultures.

The booming neighborhood of MiMo has a delicious new addition called Pinch Kitchen, a “freestyle” American eatery featuring a menu filled with small, product-driven plates.

Brunch may be a pretty common meal in the Brickell neighborhood, but Golden Fig is certainly worth adding to the rotation. The farm-to-table, Florida-inspired eatery has added the essential weekend meal to its lineup offering it both Saturday and Sundays every week and we got to taste it first hand.

You may be familiar with Dale Talde from his appearances on Bravo’s Top Chef. But since competing in the cooking competition he has now opened a successful restaurant, TALDE, in Brooklyn, New Jersey, and now Miami Beach, inside the Thompson Hotel.

There is no denying that we’re big fans of brunch, and when Miami Beach newcomer Izzy’s Fish & Oyster launched its weekend brunch we knew we had to check it out. The seafood-filled restaurant from owner Jamie DeRosa’s pays tribute to his childhood summers spent at the seaside shacks of the Northeast.

Taquiza has become the go-to spot for authentic tacos and late night eats on Miami Beach. Started by Eating House and Freehand Miami alum Steve Santana, it serves up tacos on house-made masa that has everyone buzzing. Chat Chow TV sat down with Santana to find out more about them and the concept behind them.

The fast casual restaurant, located on the first floor of the Eva Hotel, is a no-frills taqueria serving up seven different types of tacos to a standing-room only crowd. Santana emphasizes that everything in Taquiza is homemade right down to its masa corn tortillas, which uses corn grown in small heirloom farms sourced by Masienda. Other popular menu items include the guacamole with hand torn chips, dry rubbed beef jerky, and its take on the popular ice cream treat the choco taco.

But Santana hasn’t always been a chef — he actually began his career doing digital work, but always had a passion for food. After helping coordinate one of the first-ever Cobaya dinners, he met chef Jeremiah Bullfrog and began assisting him on his food truck. His passion grew from there and before long he left the digital world and became a chef full time.

Curious how Santana learned how to master the masa tortilla? Or what tacos are his favorite on the menu? Find out all that and more in video above.
