Buns and Buns

Posted: Updated:

We all know in Miami good buns are a must. Not just the buns in the So. Flo sun, the kind that get served up on a plate have to be good too.

Welcome to Buns and Buns in South Miami, where the bread makes the meal.

Reuven Sugarman: "Buns and Buns is a restaurant driven on breads, spices, sauces, grills, vegetables, seafood and we incorporate bread back into the dish."

The menu is worldly, with one thing in common...everyone loves carbs.

Reuven Sugarman: "It's a globally inspired menu we focus on fresh baked bread."

Each gourmet grill item or salad comes with a bun and you decide how you want to eat it.

Reuven Sugarman: "We encourage them to dip it, roll it, stuff it, eat it first, eat it last."

Every morning they whip up seven different types of buns.

Reuven Sugarman: "We have herb, brioche, pretzel, ciabatta, steamed bun, which you can get toasted or not, a cheese nan, which you can get with out cheese, and bunless bun which is a lettuce wrap."

The yeast is in the bread and the beer.

Reuven Sugarman: "Our corn fritter is a beer battered corn fritter and we use our local Wynwood Brewery Pale Ale."

Reuven Sugarman: "The chicken is marinated in Chicago Imperial Stout, so it adds a nice depth of flavor."

They may be rolling in the bread but whatever you do, don't call this place a sandwich joint.

Reuven Sugarman: "We don't do sandwiches. We don't do burgers. We don't do anything of the sort. We are pretty much a de-constructed menu."

And they are using buns in the dessert too.

Reuven Sugarman: "We have a lost bun, which is our version of a bread pudding. We use our brioche. We also have our hot chocolate bun, we stuff it with two types of chocolate, one dark chocolate and one caramel. We roll it around and fry that sucker and we give you three sauces for it."

To paraphrase my pal Sir Mix-a-Lot, just remember, you're meal ain't done unless you've got buns hun.

    I'll never forget the first time I met Jordana Green. She was beautiful and not just on the outside. She was standing across the newsroom with a big smile on her face. The first word that popped into my mind was "gamine."

    Okay, ladies...it's time to blow the whistle and cry "foul" on your high-heel sneaker wedges; even your throwback Chuck Taylor's need a time-out, too.

    Even though Donna Karan's eyes were bright and clear, they were aggressively smudged with dark black eye-liner: a signature look she's worn for years. Unfortunately, the make-up prevented me from getting a good read on her. At least, from across the room, where I was inconveniently standing.Donna was in town to promote her shop-in-shop (pictured in the blog) at Saks Fifth Avenue in Bal Harbour.

    Easter's almost here, that special time when kids bounce off the walls thanks to a candy-induced sugar high. Why let the little ones have all the fun? You can catch a holiday buzz at some Soflo watering holes with specialty drinks that are putting a brand-new spin on the words, "Easter eggs."

    Marlon Wayans is one funny guy, and he proves it in his new movie "A Haunted House 2," which opens tomorrow. I recently sat down with the comedian right here in the Magic City to talk about his new film, and to find out what makes him laugh. The answer may surprise you.
