And Then There’s the Estefans’ New Restaurant With Dancing and Singing Servers

Wednesday
The Lechon Is Gonna Get You
GLORIA GLORIA HALLELUJAH

The Lechon Is Gonna Get You

Lechon flatbread just the way Gloria likes it. Emilio’s favorite mojito. All things you can have at the Estefans’ new high-end Cuban spot in the Design District. Have that last one at the oyster-shell mosaic bar while listening to live Latin music. The servers sing and dance, too, but that was probably a given.

Michael’s Genuine Celebrates 10 Years, You Eat Throwback Dishes
PERFECT 10

Michael’s Genuine Celebrates 10 Years, You Eat Throwback Dishes

Where were you on the night of March 9, 2007? Eating wood-roasted onions stuffed with ground lamb at Michael’s Genuine? Great. Do it again, when the legendary spot celebrates the big 1-0 with a temporary menu that reflects its first. Yes, the chile chicken wings make a triumphant return. Close one.

Friday
A Trip Down Memory Lane. With Wine.
BAKED GOODS

A Trip Down Memory Lane. With Wine.

Wynwood before the graffiti. There’s a thought. Well, Bakehouse Art Complex remembers those days, and it’s about to recall them as it celebrates its 30th year. Expect the usual party fanfare—cake, wine, music—along with less traditional elements like tours, history lessons and an exhibit opening reception. Careful, you might learn something.

Saturday
Find Date. Take Date Here. Revel in Glory.
ZUCCA PUNCH

Find Date. Take Date Here. Revel in Glory.

There’s a new place to bring a date for dinner and drinks in Coral Gables called Zucca. Nona’s Mules with grappa and watermelon. Michelin-trained chefs churning out 32-ounce T-bone steaks dry-aged for 21 days. That kind of place. Maybe it’s just the one place.

Sunday
A New Brunch With Bloodys and Biscuits in Miami Beach
FIT TO BE THAI’D

A New Brunch With Bloodys and Biscuits in Miami Beach

Naiyara launches its new Thai-inspired brunch on Sunday. You should go. You should have the Bloody with vodka, yellow tomato, cilantro and Thai bird chili. You should have it outside, while you take in the Sunset Harbor neighborhood between bites of Chiang Rai fried chicken and biscuits. Ah, Sundays.

Sundays starting Mar 12, noon-3pm, Naiyara, 1854 Bay Rd, Miami Beach, 786-275-6005, reserve here

On a typical Wednesday, Ginger Harris is likely seeking reposado tequila, squeezing her way to the front of a concert or jumping on the back of an Indian motorcycle. That’s just Wednesdays, though.
