The Masked F., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on Oct. 29, wrote, “It’s a great concept. I got my jars to go, which were very good: beef bourguignon, a stone crab soup and a Key lime dessert. I got to bring back my jars and I will get $1 back for each on my next buy.”
And Eva A. wrote, “This is a great new concept missing in downtown Miami! And the food and wine are both delicious! I stumbled upon it during happy hour ($4 wine) and I ended up staying for dinner. All of the food is made that day and packaged away in microwaveable glass jars.”MORE NEWS: Cold Fronts Bring More Than Just Cool Dry Air To South Florida
