This summer, DBGB Kitchen and Bar takes over db Bistro Moderne and offers diners a revisited classic menu.
Chef Daniel Boulud's DBGB Kitchen and Bar is heading south this summer taking over db Bistro Moderne Miami. The DBGB menu will be available at the Miami eatery through July 4, offering popular items recreated by executive chef Jason Pringle and executive pastry chef Jerome Maure. Options include the Tunisienne sausage with lamb and mint merguez, the piggy burger, a 7-oz. beef patty topped with BBQ pulled pork, and the peach melba sundae. Groups of eight or more can opt for the “Whole Hog Feast” in the wine cellar and enjoy a tarte flambée and charcuterie before digging into the pièce de resistance: a slow-roasted suckling pig served tableside. 255 Biscayne Boulevard Way, Miami, 305-421-8800
Armed with a full bar, Macchialina Taverna Rustica has brought in celebrated Miami mixologist William Rivas to craft its new cocktail menu. The offerings will include four classic and four signature cocktails that will change every four to six weeks. Rivas says they are "focusing on spirits and not over-stylizing cocktails" and the "quality of ingredients more than showmanship." Debut libations include the Rising Sun with mescal and blood orange; the Phenomena with Beefeater 24, Cardamaro, and Montanaro vermouth; and the Devil in a Blue Dress with Ancho Reyes, Kappa Pisco, and lemon. 820 Alton Rd., Miami Beach, 305-534-2124
