I often get asked – “Where do you eat when you are not traveling?” Though it’s a pretty simple question, the answer is a little more complicated. I have places that I like to go to on special occasions or when I have a specific craving. But most often I find myself at a couple local spots that have won me over. Not with the flashy lights or gimmicky hooks that seem to surround many restaurants in Miami these days. But rather, with a constant quality and care for what they do. There’s one particular favorite I gravitate toward for their consistently well executed food and always rotating menu.
I’m talking about PRØØF in Midtown Miami where Chef/Owner Justin Flit never disappoints. Over the course of the last two years I have seen it evolve from mainly “pizza and pasta” to a well executed play on New American cuisine. The dishes range widely from handmade pastas to inventive small plates, seasonal salads, and desserts – all inspired by the freshest local products.
And of course, the pièce de résistance, and the reason you are here: their Grassfed cheeseburger with white cheddar aioli, caramelized onions on a homemade potato bun.
