Bar Crudo brings light seafood fare to South of Fifth.
Bar Crudo Soft Opening on Thursday: Formerly of Cooper Avenue, chef Reto von Weissenfluh will serve seafood tapas, caviar, and sushi at this new South of Fifth seafood haunt.

Pointe Dr., Miami Beach, 305-763-8508
Radio Bar Adds Personalized Cocktail Menu: Likewise cool and refreshing is James Beard-nominated mixologist Craig Schoettler's fresh juice-based cocktail menu (think watermelon, honeydew, mango). Also of note is his interactive "Spice It Up Menu," which allows guests to build and name their own cocktail. And yes, the better concoctions may be added to Radio Bar's permanent menu. 814 1st St., Miami Beach, 305-397-8382
Happy Wines Welcomes Brunch: Coconut Grove's oenophile hub is now serving Sunday brunch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Topping the menu are classic brunch dishes, as well as Spanish specialties like a Revoltillo Español (scrambled eggs and shrimp) and a Calentadito Colombiano with Colombian-style rice and beans, short ribs, sweet plantains, and fried eggs. Add a glass of sangria, mimosa, or Bellini for a mere $1.85 per pour. 2833 Bird Ave., Coconut Grove, 305-460-9939
Korean Barbecue at The Catalina Hotel & Beach Club: Korean food fans can head to The Catalina's Kung Fu Kitchen, where Seoul cuisine has been added to the menu.
