New drinks and restaurants in Broward and Miami

Headed to Broward or Miami-Dade? Here are some new drinks that will start your weekend off in a fun way, and then there are some new places you need to know about, too! Happy Weekend!

Maplenut Manhattans and other creative drinks: db Bistro Moderne

The db Bistro Moderne (255 Biscayne Blvd. Way, Miami, 305/421-8800) bartending gang has created some new inventions to help ease you into the weekend. Among them is Leah putting together the Maplenut Manhattan (pictured), and we bring you the recipe here, too.

Maplenut Manhattan

  • 2 ounces bourbon
  • 1 ounce Carpano Antica
  • ¼ ounce Smoked Maple Syrup
  • 4-5 dashes black walnut bitters

Shake ingredients vigorously with ice. Strain into chilled martini glass. Garnish with maple-glazed walnut.

National Margarita Day specials continue: Cantina Laredo

Speaking of drinks, National Margarita Day on Feb. 22 is fast approaching, and Cantina Laredo (501 Silks Run, Hallandale, 954/457-7662) is getting in on the action with $7 Cabo Flip margaritas (pictured). I love the inventiveness of this fresh lime margarita with Cabo Wabo Reposado, Grand Marnier Orange Liqueur and a lime boat full of tequila!

Chill with the popular cocktails at Louie Bossi’s

The Popsicle cocktail (pictured) at Louie Bossi’s Ristorante, Bar & Pizzeria (1032 E. Las Olas Blvd., Fort Lauderdale, 954/356-6699) will tickle your taste buds at the popular restaurant. Or try the pineapple martini, sgropino pear martini and a finale with the arrivederchi cocktail. Bene!

New and renovated eateries: Sushi Garage, Oceans 2000

There’s Miami Beach, Miami proper, Wynwood and there’s Sunset Harbour, which just welcomed Sushi Garage (pictured, 1784 West Ave., Miami, 305/763-8355). The restaurant features traditional Japanese food and drinks. It seats 100, and is owned by the restaurateurs Jonas and Alexandra Milla,  Juvia Miami Beach and Bonito St. Barth Chef Partner Sunny Oh.

Take in the newly renovated Ocean 2000 restaurant at the Pelican Grand Beach Resort (2000 N. Ocean Blvd., Fort Lauderdale, 800/525-6232), sit seaside, and try one of the monthly “Evening Under the Moon” events, with a five-course prix-fixe menu that includes telescopes and visits from an astrologer!
