What You'll Get
Passing things can be one of mankind's most enjoyable experiences, be it blame, college entrance exams, or attractive strangers. Today's deal combines the joy of passing plates with the merriment of libations: for $20, you get $45 worth of small plates and drinks at miniBAR in Wynwood.
There are two approaches to ordering at miniBAR. You could poll your tablemates for a consensus on passable edibles, allowing everyone to try a bit everything, or just order one of everything, allowing everyone to truly try everything. The menu consists of small servings of sandwiches, pizzas, pastas, salads, sweets, and more. There are mini sandwiches, such as the roasted tomato, olive spread, feta, and spinach ($4), and sliders such as the beef, bleu cheese, and arugula ($5). Choose from a variety of inherently sharable pizzas such as the hummus, kalamata olive, and red onion ($6), or snack on bite-sized tortellini bites ($4), papas rellenas ($5), or truffle fries with parmesan ($5). Accompany your lightly filling meal with a few stimulating beverages from the bar. Sip on red and white wine by the glass ($6–$8), local and micro-brews by the pint ($5–$12), and sake by the bottle ($36), as well as a variety of other beverages, both alcoholic and non.
This restaurant recently opened in Miami's design district, with décor dressed to match the aura of the area. It features six different rooms; each seats no more than 30 guests and retains its own vibe, keeping the areas varied while creating an atmosphere as cozy as a mythical pelt of Snuffy fur. Dining at miniBAR feels more like eating at a neighbor's house than inside a restaurant. The intimate surroundings allow non-families to familiarize while forcing actual families to interact unfamiliarly.
- The place has a cool ambiance, that's both hip & romantic. It's divided into quite a few separate areas, some quite cozy, each with it's own look & all with original artwork on the walls throughout the 2 stories. The music playing in the background also ads to the vibe. – Laz, Urbanspoon
- This is one of those places you want to tell everyone about to ensure longevity! In the old Charcuterie space, MinBar is cozy and serves up delicious dishes. You'll be so thankful that the portions are "mini" so that you can try a little of everything, which we did! – Andrea Lopez, Urbanspoon
- The food is out of this world! Everything comes out hot, perfectly cooked, properly seasoned, well executed and thoughtfully presented. – Stephanie B., Yelp
