Places to look forward to this summer


The summer isn’t exactly prime time for opening a restaurant in Miami, but the tides are changing and several new spots will be coming our way even in the hottest of months. Here are the ones we are most looking forward to.

Paulie Gee’s Miami

WHO: Jason Weisberg, Paulie Gee

WHAT:This popular Brooklyn pizzeria is — like many NYC restaurants — making its way down to Miami. Taking over a former Chinese restaurant space on Biscayne, it’ll serve up many of the classic pies that made Paulie Gee’s so popular along with dishes created with the Miami market in mind.

WHERE: 8001 Biscayne Blvd
