Burger & Beer Joint on South Beach Quietly Closes

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Closed, News

I remember when Burger & Beer Joint opened in August of 2009 as if it was just yesterday. My blog was not quite one year old and the Burger scene in South Florida was pretty much nonexistent. There was a level of excitement about what they were going to be doing from the elevated Burgers to […]

I had to find out from one of these delivery services about the existence of Fat Moe’s and it’s right around the corner from my HQ. Upon further inspection I learn that Fat Moe’s is located inside of the Gas Station on the corner of 57th & Flagler, right across the street from El Palacio de […]

Just a little over 2 and a half years ago I wrote about Chef Alberto Cabrera and his just opened Bread + Butter Counter in Coral Gables. This past December I told you about his new sandwich concept in Little Havana called Little Bread which seemed to take the parts that worked best at B+B and […]

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in Closed, Gulfcoast Florida, Naples, Reviews by Burger Beast

Just my luck that I would arrive at Pastrami Dan’s after it’s closing time (4PM). I notice the Old Chicago Pizzeria right around the corner which I don’t remember seeing before so it’s pretty much a given I’m stopping in. I could say the menu is electric in that there’s Hot Dogs, Italian Beef and […]

Chef Alberto Cabrera just opened up Little Bread in Little Havana. This comes just a couple of months shy of Bread + Butter Counter‘s 2 year anniversary, B+B is his other restaurant. Sandwiches are more my speed and that’s what Little Bread is all about. The Sandwiches at Little Bread are serious business, just take the Pulpeta (without […]

I remember it like it was the other day, the owners of Marlie’s Delights walked up to me at the National Hamburger Month edition of Wheelin’ Dealin’ Street Food Festival (May 2012) at Magic City Casino. They were launching a new Dessert food truck and were inquiring about openings in my events. This was back […]

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in Brickell, Closed, Miami-Dade County

Prost Wurstgrill and Bierhouse in Brickell seemed to be all over the twitter-sphere one week and by the following week it was gone. Phil Bryant formerly of Swine was the consulting Chef at Prost and had invited Gio from Chat Chow TV and I in for a tasting. I’m pretty sure it was the last meal […]

Jefe’s Original Fish Taco & Burgers Food Truck is a little over a month away from its 4th anniversary and is there any better way to celebrate than with the opening of Jefe’s Original Soul Shack? Since the day I laid my eyes on Jefe’s Double Cheezer Miami Style Burger it’s been a Burger love […]

Taperia Raca is the new tapas spot by Giorgio Rapicavoli and Alex Casanova of Eating House fame with Chef de Cuisine Ryan Harrison, formerly of Preservation in the kitchen. They recently opened up in the old Metro Organic Bistro location near Dogma. Once I heard the magic word, “Croqueta” I was already in my car driving […]

My introduction to the guys (now only Rusty) behind Passion BBQ was when they were doing the BBQ at the great but short lived Lunch American Style. They’ve since opened up the Passion BBQ Food Truck and now their brick & mortar home at Craft Bar & Q. Craft Bar & Q is in soft […]
