Town Center Favorites: 19-1 2023




Gianfranco C., Coral Gables

In learning of the new Italian restaurant in South Miami I had to make my way over there.  The spirit and enthusiasm among the staff, greeting me “Buongiorno” at the door set the stage for a memorable lunch.  The one dish I always try as a determining criterion is the beef carpaccio.  The presentation and flavors were just great.  Verace will become a great place to host my business lunches.  All the best to the team.

Just One Bite

Susanna B., South Miami

My husband and I had lunch at Craft last week.  The first bite of the prosciutto sandwich served in a warm focaccia had my mouth watering. The fresh mozzarella, arugula and tomato with a balsamic glaze was delightful.  Craft is a great addition to the downtown South Miami food choices.

Hearing From You

Winn Dixie site
WOW! Work on the redevelopment of the Winn Dixie property is going gang-busters.
Great progress is being made, with seemingly little disruption to the surrounding business, with exception to the customers of CasaCuba who used the parking lot.  The new apartment complex will certainly add needed foot traffic in town to support the local businesses.

Missing Art Festival
I came to South Miami to visit my family in late October hoping to catch the annual South Miami Art Festival on the first weekend of November.  Much to my chagrin, I learned this popular art show was discontinued a few years ago by the organizers, the local chamber of commerce.  What a shame!  It was a great draw and promoted the area very nicely.

Pedestrian Crosswalk Signs
Many communities around South Miami have these “Stop for Pedestrians” signs at crosswalks.
We had them here as well, however, they’ve gone missing in the last several months from what I can see.  While I don’t like to see a proliferation of signs, as a pedestrian and making my way around town, I have found them to be a good reminder to vehicular traffic.
