The Meal Program That Gwyneth Paltrow & Lily Aldridge Swear By
The latest in Miami dining news, from a model favorite meal program to the St. Regis’ new burger bar.
Serious gastronauts ought to head over to GK Bistronomie in Wynwood, where chef and owner Rafael Perez is putting a unique and unexpected local and global twist on Peruvian classics. Here, grouper tiradito is submerged in limey Parmigiano Reggiano, chive, and rocoto cream; and ceviche made with cherrywood-smoked pink shrimp (fished from Key West) swims in a citrusy orange tiger’s milk and is crowned with plantains and popcorn. Carefully crafted cocktails are equally innovative, like the Queen Mayra with Absolut Pear, passion fruit, celery, and ylang-ylang, and garnished with torched cinnamon and dandelion oil, created by one of Peru’s best barkeeps, Jossimar Lujan. 218 NW 25th St., Miami, 786-477-5151
Nip your meat addiction in the bud by going full vegan at Full Bloom. Tucked away in the Costa Brava condominium (across from The Standard), the hidden gem boasts spectacular views and salubrious yet delectable fare. Lovers of cheese won’t miss dairy with the artisanal cheese platter (made from nuts, of course), while daily specials (cross your fingers for the spinach gnocchi “bolognese”) give you something to look forward to beyond meatless Mondays. 11 Island Ave., Miami Beach, 305-397-8018
What do Victoria’s Secret Angels Lily Aldridge and Erin Heatherton, and starlets Gwyneth Paltrow and Emmy Rossum have in common, besides being beautiful? They swear by the organic, plant-based, dairyfree, and superfood-rich meal program Sakara Life that now delivers in Miami and throughout Florida. Sakara Life offers a rotating and locally sourced selection of tasty yet guiltless breakfasts (strawberry shortcake with rose-coconut cream), lunches (Daydreamer Soba Noodle Bowl), and dinners (red-beet burger) to your front door. Great for the body and the palate—especially for those of us wearing bikinis 365 days a year.
Raising the Bar
Have it your way at St. Regis’s Burger Bar. Go with the signature Wagyu slider samples or daily-fashioned burger, or build your own and top it with handcrafted cheeses, house bourbon bacon, from-scratch sauces (try the secret aioli), and black truffl e. There’s also gourmet franks, shakes and fl oats created by pastry wizard Antonio Bachour (sip on the bourbon-spiked salted caramel), duck fat or zucchini fries, and a lofty list of Florida brews. 9703 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305-993-0711
