Malibu Farm is an upscale beach-shack-style restaurant newly opened in Miami. Other locations include Newport Beach, Malibu, and Lanai. California native Helene Henderson started Malibu Farm. Henderson is a model-turned-chef. She started Malibu Farm by offering farm dinners in her backyard and out of her home.
Henderson gradually expanded from a casual counter-service cafe to four restaurants around the country. Malibu Farm uses recipes made with whole wheat flour, whole grains and vegetables, and fruits. You won’t find artificial ingredients or non-fat recipes at Malibu Farm. Instead, they source ingredients from small, local farmers. You can check the website for a list of local farmers that the restaurant uses.

La Cañita at Bayside
We are bringing to Bayside Marketplace rich and intriguing tastes from the Caribbean and pan-Latin cuisines, live music, and a celebration of the culture around rum. The name “La Cañita,” which translates to “little sugarcane” in Spanish, refers to the restaurant’s celebration of the cuisine and flavors of sun-drenched tropical destinations such as Cuba, Jamaica, Haiti, Trinidad and Tobago, and Puerto Rico, as well as the influences of Central and South American countries. Providing breathtaking views of Miami from the beachfront.
La Traila Barbecue
Mel Rodriguez, an Austin native, and Isaiah McKenzie, a Buffalo Bills wide receiver (and Miami native), began organizing barbecues for friends and family this past year and decided to convert their hobby into a company. The two friends outgrew their food truck, creating a brick-and-mortar establishment in Miami Lakes. They now serve smoked brisket, pulled pig beef “dino” ribs, and other dishes.
The brisket sundae ($14) has to be the most Instagrammable food. The meal begins with a mac-and-cheese foundation, then stacked with creamed corn and baked beans before being topped with cotija cheese, smoked brisket, house sauce, and crema. The “Impossibly Smoked” burger and the “All Natural” salad from La Tralia will satisfy vegetarians (smoked pulled jackfruit tossed in a house sauce and topped with onions and pickles).
Dirty French Steakhouse
Once again, Major Food Group is up to its old tricks. This time, they’ve opened a swanky restaurant covered in animal designs. It’s a good time, and you’ll probably spend much of it dancing on your seat covered in leopard print to the retro music playing in each of the restaurant’s several dining rooms. Before selecting one of the high-quality steaks on the menu, try the vast grilled oysters’ bourguignon, the chicken and crêpes, or the mushroom millefeuille.
After a four-month restoration, this Miami staple reopened in December, giving the almost 15-year-old restaurant a dramatic facelift. The new facility offers a bright, open internal room that flows onto the outside terrace through sliding doors, creating a lush and breezy location for people to drink and dine. In addition, the new deck has a retractable roof, allowing for year-round outdoor dining.
Many of the same delectable dishes prepared by James Beard Award-winning chefs Michael Schwartz, such as stracciatella, wood oven-roasted octopus, and pan-roasted poulet rouge, are on the menu. In addition, there are many new items, such as a whole roasted tuna collar done Sicilian-style — with roasted heirloom tomatoes, basil, and anchovy oil — and a massaman lamb curry with Thai fried egg salad and jasmine rice.

So, whether you’re searching for a quick nibble or a sit-down dinner, one of these restaurants will have something to fit your needs.
