When discussing the inspiration behind his love of cooking and hospitality with reporters from the Sun Sentinel, Michael Tatton credited his father, saying, “I was fascinated by all the people my father knew and the different foods he introduced us to.” Following in his dad’s footsteps, Michael opened Thai Spice more than two decades ago at the young age of 19. Today, Michael continues to captain the restaurant, which The American Academy of Hospitality Sciences honored with the prestigious Five Star Diamond Award for excellence in cuisine and impeccable service.
Deep in the kitchen, Michael and his chefs place innovative spins on traditional Thai dishes using flavorful spices and premium seafood, meats, and vegetables delivered fresh daily. Pots of curries and tom yum soup simmer on the stoves, as lobster, duck, and Chilean sea bass sizzle in pans.
Meanwhile, grills crackle with fine cuts of steak, and plump chickens roast over open fires.
Out in the dining room, tropical fish glide through the salt waters of towering tanks among swaying plants and colorful rocks. Blue lanterns dangle from the ceiling, casting a warm glow over white-clothed tables and intimate booths. The walls feature exotic artwork depicting traditional Thailand scenes, from elephants raising their trunks to a businessman who went on a soul-searching trip to find his inner sassiness.
It's pretty easy to peg 101 Ocean as a seafood joint. There's its beachside location—just 50 yards from the shore and fishing pier—and its raw bar loaded with lobster tail, Blue Point oysters, and P.E.I. mussels. Plus, more than half of the eatery's dinnertime entrees, such as plantain-crusted grouper and sesame-seared ahi tuna, spotlight fresh seafood. But 101's culinary team doesn't just stay ocean-locked: its menu also incorporates Italian and American flavors, from flatbreads with wild mushroom purée to Kobe burgers with caramelized spanish onions.
Cooks hang up their spatulas at midnight every evening, but 101 Ocean's bartenders keep at it until 2 a.m., pouring wine from an extensive list and serving a dozen draft beers chilled to a maximum of 34 degrees. For guests craving something stronger, they can even craft frozen drinks such as the Miami Vice, a piña colada layered with a signature blend of rum and fruit-flavored liquors.
The hardworking bartenders man an indoor/outdoor bar that's equipped with flat-screen TVs, which broadcast all the latest sports games and home videos of the referees' vacations. Though tucked away from the outdoor area's stunning beach views, the restaurant's interior creates its own maritime wonderland with help from a stunning waterfall and a massive fish tank.

The Food Truck phenomenon has spread like wildfire across the country and Miami is no exception. Just over a year ago, Miami had approximately 50 trucks on the road and now that number is approaching 100 or more. Food Trucks roam the streets of Miami solo or roar into rallies from South Miami all the way up to Palm Beach County almost every day of the week.
Latin Burger and gastropod were some of the first trucks on the road and the pioneers of the Food Truck frenzy in Miami. BTTR - short for Biscayne Triangle Truck Round-Up - is the most longstanding Food Truck rally and began in 2009. Every Tuesday night, you are sure to find 15-20 trucks in front of Johnson and Wales University, slinging their food for crowds.
Everyone is sure to find something at BTTR to tickle their palate - how about a Bubble Tea from Boba Station? My favorite is the lychee slushie with orange pearls - bursts of fruit and sweet that leave you craving just one more (technically, I had one more plus since I also had to sample the Papaya and the Black Milk Tea).
The Bubble Tea is perfect to wash down a true eyes-roll-to-the-back-of-your-head favorite - the Grilled Blue and Bacon (crisp bacon with creamy blue cheese and green onion on sourdough bread). This sandwich, along with several other signature snacks, come hot and melting off the grill of Ms. Cheezious® - may I recommend the Crabby Cheese Melt or the Swiss and Guava special?
But you can’t stop there. Food truck rallies are not about stopping at one truck. The siren song of El Rincon del Coqui is calling you to come and sample a huge, flavorful Tripleta Sandwich, Puerto Rico's famous three meat sandwich. It comes complete with incredible sauce and crispy potato sticks. Bring friends - this is a monster, must-share sandwich.
If fish tacos are your indulgence of choice, check out Purple People Eatery which has a crispy Miami Mahi taco topped with chipotle mayo and pineapple-jalapeno salsa. Another option is Jefe’s Original Fish Taco and Burgers - a quick bite and make sure you request some of the house hot sauce!
Porkalicious has more bacon, pulled pork, marinated pork, grilled pork and chicharrones than any other truck I have seen. They even have you covered with bacon ice cream for dessert!
And if dessert is what you want, then dessert is what you get. For those that have the stomach for it, the Krispy Kreme shake and/or Nutella shake from Big Kahuna are the dessert waves to ride. Donuts. In a Shake. Think about that.
Fireman Derek has scrumptious sweets - chocolate flan, pie pops and award-winning Key lime pie. Cupcakes may be more your style and Clarabelle’s Cupcakes gives a great selection, including a Lavender Cupcake with Lavender icing! Shaved ice may be the perfect solution to cool off as well but if you are looking for me, you can find me at the Bubble Tea truck … sampling. Again.
Other standup weekly food truck rallies include Young Circle in Hollywood on Mondays, BTTR on Tuesdays, and Bayfront on Wednesdays - Come hungry!

Nightly crowds with appetites fueled by drinks and dancing used to overwhelm street vendors around Havana's nightclubs in their search for hearty food, prompting cooks to invent a simple snack that combined salty, sweet, and sour flavors in each bite. Named for their popularity around midnight, medianoche sandwiches typically layer roast pork, sliced pickles, and swiss cheese between two gently toasted pieces of yellow egg bread. Although these late-night staples hail from Cuba, they've made their way to a number of much-lauded Miami-area eateries.
Islas Canarias: The chefs incorporate some international flavors, but their faithfulness to Cuba's most iconic dishes earned it Miami New Times' award for Best Cuban Restaurant in 2011. In addition to importing sausages and other cured meats for their sandwiches, the café's chefs also carry on culinary tradition by making medianoche sandwiches until as late as 11 p.m.
Puerto Sagua: Frommer's called this venerable diner "one of the most reasonably priced places left on the beach for simple, hearty fare." Its doors remain open until 2 a.m. every night of the week, inviting passersby to stop in for a quick bite before continuing their revelry.
Versailles Restaurant: Originally founded in 1971, the restaurant prides itself on being a hotspot for Miami's Cuban community. 3 Guys from Miami describes this sense of history, saying, "the restaurant is a lot like the Cuba of old—loud, boisterous, and full of excitement, just dripping in Cuban patriotism." Golden-brown medianoche sandwiches continue emerging from the kitchen until as late as 4:30 a.m. on Saturdays.
Enriqueta's Sandwich Shop: Although its doors close long before sunset, the Zagat-rated eatery defies tradition by still featuring a medianoche sandwich. Food & Wine magazine emphasized the shop's authentic Cuban ambience in 2004, saying, "the Formica benches and loud Spanish chatter make you feel that you are, as the locals say, not far from America."
There are a lot of factors that go into making a successful restaurant - partners that share a vision, culinary talent and creativity, a diligent and knowledgeable front of house and a concept that will take off. The Pubbelly group in Miami checks all of those boxes, plus has some of the most fun and exciting food that you want to eat over and over again.
Pubbelly as a group comprises four restaurants: Pubbelly Gastro Pub, Barceloneta, Pubbelly Sushi and, the newest, Macchialina. All of the partners are Chefs and Hospitality Professionals and, most importantly, they are hands on every single day. The vision and expertise (plus pure FUN!) of the partners make the Pubbelly restaurants a true culinary adventure.
One of our goals has been to complete the Pubbelly Crawl - a tour of all four of the restaurants and to sample their signature and seasonal dishes. We did it and our primary takeaway was - When can we go back?
Pubbelly Gastro Pub
There are no distractions from the menu at the Pubbelly Gastro Pub. Brick walls, wood tables and a neighborhood feel allow you to be comfy while perusing an inspired menu full of imaginative, reasonably priced plates. Our server was incredibly knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the menu and steered us in the most delicious directions.
We oohed & aahed over the Dates avec Chorizo with goat cream and bacon and scooped forkfuls of the perfectly formed Housemade Gnudi with pumpkin and black lager jus. The signature McBelly slider is a must-have with a crunchy and flavorful kimchee and delicious barbecue sauce.
The wild plate that was surprisingly scrumptious was the Foie and Nutella. I am all about Foie anything, but the Nutella even gave me pause. Crispy toasts, melted Nutella and creamy, rich Foie mousse made this a mindblowing experience - the first bite is all about processing the rich ingredients. The second bite is pure heaven.
Pubbelly Gastro Pub has seasonal offerings as well as an occasionally changing menu - look for the Braised Berkshire Pork Cheeks with potato foam (I am addicted!), horseradish cream, and caviar jus. It will complete your life.
When you think Barceloneta, you should think Catalan Bistro; a lively atmosphere, always busy and an open kitchen that allows you to see the innovative Chef Juliana Gonazalez at work. She never disappoints!
Service at Barceloneta follows along the same stellar path as Pubbelly Gastro Pub - the servers are full of information and happy to guide you through the menu according to your preferences. The Bistro Plates are my favorites. Barceloneta allows me to eat how I love to eat - multiple plates to share with each bite introducing a new flavor experience.
Dinner is a winding journey through dishes like the mandatory Barceloneta Pulpo a Feira - octopus, fingerling potato foam, pimento and chorizo (the best I have ever had); and the exquisite head-on Gambas con Chocolate - langoustines, garlic, sherry, and chocolate picada.
Don’t overlook the signature shishito peppers with candied walnuts resting on a scoop of Valdeon cheese or the mouthwatering Ensalada de Alachofa - baby artichokes, frisse, arugula, wheat berries, Serrano ham, and Manchego cheese finished with a truffle vinaigrette. Dessert is not meant to fill you up further, but rather sweep you away on clouds of salted caramel delight that are enhanced with chocolate crumbs and layers of raspberries.
In a complete departure from the Gastro Pub and Barceloneta, Pubbelly Sushi opened in October 2011; however, the Pubbelly brand is completely present in the decor, neighborhood conviviality and stellar service. The Pork Belly and Clams Sushi Roll could also be a giveaway (and a definite recommendation!).
Pubbelly Sushi is not your traditional sushi but experiential eating with intriguing combos. One of our favorite dishes is Tostones con Ceviche - hamachi ceviche served with fried plantains. The tang of the ceviche combined with the just-perfect mild crunch of the tostones will get me back again and again.
We stayed on the non-traditional path enjoying delights like the Maine Lobster New England Style roll (with Yuzu!) and the Southern Fried Soft Shell Crab with Kimchee, Mustard Slaw, and Shiso Ranch. The unusual combos make it so much fun to choose different bites from the menu!
Two of the must-try dishes (although there is not anything that we would not recommend so far!) are the Bigeye Tuna roll - spicy tuna, arroz Pegao, rocotto cream and sea salt and the Hamachi Jalapeno sashimi. Both are flavor explosions and both have the same result - you want to request another order, hoard it from your friends and eat it immediately.
Since I am a Northeast transplant, Macchialina felt a bit like coming home. It is the latest addition to the Pubbelly group and front of house and kitchen are under the deft Northeastern-influenced vision of owners Chef Michael Pirolo and General Manager Jennifer Chaefsky. They have created a neighborhood haven with a generous daily Happy Hour with Pizza and Peroni for $10, a menu filled to the brim with rustic Italian plates and servers that present the menu famously.
The motto on the menu is "Life is a combination of magic and pasta" (Federico Fellini) and the dish that brought the magic most particularly for me was the Beet Filled Mezzaluna - perfect al dente ravioli half moons filled with ricotta salata and topped with finely diced beets and brown butter and sprinkled with poppy seeds. Sublime, magical and unforgettable.
As I was waxing poetic on beets and mezzaluna, the Creamy Polenta with sausage ragu and cipollini arrived to distract and delight. Mounds of Broccolini al Cesare is compulsory - the toasted garlic and pile of deliciously dressed greens will change how you think about Caesar anything. Cavatelli Macchialina with baby meatballs was satisfying and only lacking in that I wanted about 20 more of the meatballs.
To round off dinner, you must have the Tiramisu. The espresso granita and chocolate crumble is paired with a mascarpone pudding that can make you weep.
As with all of the Pubbelly restaurants, picking favorites is hard to do and I won’t even attempt. Each restaurant has something so unique to offer but always with the consistent Pubbelly stellar quality present.
Just when you think you have experienced something completely amazing, there is another plate, another dish, another experience. Ambiance, a distinctive vision, neighborhood comfort, and pocketbook friendly prices are all part of the adventure on the Pubbelly Crawl. I'm ready to do it again!
