Yeah, us neither.
But that changes with Michael Mina 74. It’s an urban-y, late-night bistro where they pour spiked punch from a tap and cook suckling pig for you and your date, and it’s now open in the old Arkadia spot at Fontainebleau Miami Beach.
First things first, find a date. You’ll want one of those here. Then, walk inside and gauge the lay of the land. The long stretch of bar. The brown leather banquettes framed by red brick walls. Handsome spot for savoring dishes from the culinary force behind Bourbon Steak.
So, the bar: that works for first-date chitchat over hamachi poppers, carbonated bottled gimlets and liquor-y punch on tap. And those banquettes: you’ll want to use one of those for some serious course-altering conversation over Wagyu short rib and suckling pig straight out of a caja china.
And you know how time flies when you’re having suckling pig—well, you might look up and find that it’s suddenly 2am. The lights are dimmer. A DJ’s started to spin. And a plate of late-night beignets made with Macallan 18 have magically appeared before your eyes.
Best. Trick. Ever.
