Style File: Wynwood Sundays
The Wynwood Art District has quickly become one of the hottest areas in South Florida, with enough new restaurants, bars and art to enjoy an entire day. In tonight's Style File, 7's Belkys Nerey shows how to spend a "Sunday Funday" in Wynwood.
Start off your morning with a jolt at Panther Coffee, where the beans are roasted on site.
Sandra Pinto: "I actually live on Miami Beach, but I drive all the way over here because their coffee is so amazing. I actually come twice a day on Sundays once in the mornings and afternoons."
After you're done with your morning coffee and paper, it's time to eat. We suggest you make your second stop at Bloom for brunch.
Sebastian Stahl, Owner, Bloom: "The original idea behind Bloom is the food is inspired by the street food of Latin America and Asia."
At their "Dim Sum-days," you'll find traditional dim sum items like dumplings and egg rolls, but Chef Ricky also takes an unusual spin on other breakfast items.
Sebastian Stahl: "The egg and bull, which is actually a brisket with a poached egg on top and with jasmine truffle rice. We're also doing a take on steak and eggs with skirt steak with sunny side egg on top with peppers from Guatemala."
Vanessa Martin: "You get to order a little bit of everything, try a little bit of everything, and it's really good."
It's easy to spend a few hours enjoying a leisurely lunch.
Sebastian Stahl: "You can sit inside for the summertime in Miami, and we have a beautiful outdoor terrace for Sunday brunch. "It doesn't stop here. It's 'Sunday Funday.' This is just the beginning."
Work off some of those calories by walking Wynwood to see what's new on the walls.
Laura Dias: "Blocks and blocks of fun! I have my camera. We took some fun photos."
Starting at 3:00 p.m. you can join the afternoon party at the popular Wood Tavern.
Cesar Morales, Owner, Wood Tavern: "'Backyard Boogie' is our Sunday day party. It starts at 3 p.m. until 11.
A DJ spins old school tunes while bartenders serve up specialty drinks.
Cesar Morales: "A favorite is the Boogie Lemonade. It's vodka, fresh raspberries, fresh lemonade and mint. It's very refreshing for the daytime."
One of the coolest features is their taco car.
Cesar Morales: "The taco car is literally a car that we converted into a kitchen. There are authentic tacos. It's what you would find on the streets of Mexico."
Laura Dias: "The tacos are amazing, and the price is very affordable."
Like any backyard barbecue, they also grill up some ribs, chicken or hamburgers.
Jonathan Knopf: "Get some ribs, some drinks and go over to Panther and sober up with some coffee. Six or seven hours is what you unintentionally do. You immerse yourself in what is Wynwood."
It doesn't matter what order you hit all the hot spots. It's a winning day in Wynwood.
You can make a different rotation every week. There's Pride and Joy Barbecue, Gramps Bar, the options are endless.
