Longtime friends and Miami natives Andres Barrientos and James Bowers have a lot in common. Former chefs and lovers of swine, the duo behind the new Miami Smokers Urban Smokehouse traded in their chef whites for butcher aprons and the title of smoke whisperers two years ago, bringing their all-natural, humanely raised and heritage breed pork bellies to notable dining destinations all through Miami. Odds are that you’ve bitten into their bacon at Michael Mina 74, Blue Collar, or Eating House. Now you can get a taste of their sustainable smoked, dried, and cured charcuterie in many shapes, sizes, and forms—from sausage and salami to loins and chops—in-house and straight from their new digs in Little Havana. 306 NW 27th Ave., Miami, 305-989-8848
Sardinia Enoteca Ristorante has been drawing gourmands with bowls of orecchiette with boar sausage and rapini since 2006. Now chef and co-owner Pietro Vardeu, along with partner Tony Gallo, is expanding with the opening of two new venues, Moye and Campania. Moye will keep to cuisine from Puglia, while Campania brings ingredients from Naples. Moye, 80 SW Eighth St., Miami, 305-372-5168. Campania, 4029 N. Miami Ave., Miami
SHAKING THINGS UP
The team behind Broken Shaker opens 27 for a nearby nosh.
They say if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. And while South Beach hot spot Broken Shaker needs no fixing, the team behind the pioneering cocktail bar—the Freehand’s Roy Alpert, along with Bar Lab’s Elad Zvi and Gabriel Orta—are cooking something up with their new restaurant, 27. The eatery is housed in the historic two-story standalone adjacent to the Freehand hotel’s pool—after a few drinks at the Shaker, stroll through the leafy courtyard to the restaurant. Inside, chef James Seyba whips up comfort food inspired by the culture of Miami that’s not only sourced in part from the on-site garden but pairs perfectly with a handcrafted libation. 2727 Indian Creek Dr., Miami Beach, 305-531-2727
