There's plenty to toast on Miami's culinary scene this week, from The District's anniversary bash to the return of Burger & Bordeaux at db Bistro.
The iconic db Burger
October means the end of Miami Spice, but db Bistro Moderne is filling the void with the return of Burger & Bordeaux, its three-course dinner special, available through the end of the month. Diners can choose a starter and then move on to the pièce de résistance, the much-loved gourmet db Burger stuffed with red wine-braised short ribs and foie gras, served on a parmesan bun with a side of pommes frites. Wash down dinner with a glass of Les Cadrans de Lassègue and end with a decadent dessert. 255 Biscayne Boulevard Way, Miami, 305-421-8800 >>Read More
