I promised you more Miami food reviews, and of course, I wouldn’t leave you hanging!
|Southern Peach & Yam-Hattan|
After our day full of eating our way through South Beach, we kept the party going and hit up a few more spots in Miami before heading home. We walked around Lincoln Road for a while since I’ve never been there. Well, I have, but I was little. The last time I visited South Beach was with my parents when I was probably like 10 or 11 years old. We walked to Yardbird Southern Table & Bar to get a drink. McKenzie raved about how good this place is the whole walk over. It’s a very rustic-style restaurant/bar with a southern-inspired menu. Everything listed on the cocktail list includes bourbon and the menu has southern staples like fried green tomato, shrimp and grits and chicken biscuits. We met some pretty cool people while we were sitting at the bar too. They seriously ordered everything off the menu and eventually it led to us all starting up a conversation about the restaurant being so good. I also told them about my blog and they were nice enough to let me take some pictures of their food (pictured below). McKenzie and I tried some of their fancy-schmancy cocktails. I got the “southern revival” with bourbon, basil, passionfruit, lemon juice and ginger ale and the “southern peach” with bourbon, house-made peach preserves, aperol, lemon juice, thyme and sweet tea. He had the “kentucky mule” with bourbon, vodka, lime juice, ginger beer and orange bitters and “Yam-hattan,” a twist on the classic Manhattan, but with sweet potato infused bouron, sweet vermouth and chocolate mole bitters. As you can see, their drinks are really unique. I like how risky some restaurants get with their drink lists — it shows so much creativity.
