Big buildings springing to life. Big players calling the AA Arena home. Big plates of beef with beer sorbet... We’ll explain that last one.
Available now for your next mind-blowing pre-game rendezvous: Amuse, a glossy den of modern French cooking, now open at Tempo Miami hotel.
Despite its location across the street from the AA Arena, this is a relatively quiet, off-the-radar spot to take a date. Walking into the third-floor resto, the first thing you’ll want to do is look out the great sprawl of glass framing views of the bay. Take a deep breath and bask. Then, claim a couple of leather chairs and get things socially lubed with a beer or a Cucumber Lemonade.
When you’ve got her laughing about your thoughts on Dan Le Batard’s chest hair, step over to the adjacent dining room and ask for a table by the 30-foot-tall windows overlooking the arena. That’s where you’ll want to dive into the mostly Californian wine list and summon plates from the no-stranger-to-Michelin-stars Argentinean/French chef like Soft Shell Crab Tempura, sake ice cream and braised short ribs with scoops of mango beer sorbet.
Nothing pairs with alley-oops like mango beer sorbet.
