Miami's Best Eats and Drinks This Week: Craft Beer Week, Return of Michy's, and JugoFresh Superfoods

If you didn't take Mom out yesterday, make up for it by giving her a taste of Costa Rica's cuisine all week long at Edge Steak & Bar.
Paid your family dues and want some you-time? Celebrate Craft Beer Week with 50 Eggs and its plethora of happenings that include plenty of — you guessed it — beer. It's not considered drinking alone if other people are there.
And because you've been mourning the closure of Michy's for almost a year, it's time to turn that frown upside down, 'cause Michelle Bernstein is back with Cena by Michy's.
Week starts now.
Pura Vida at Edge Steak & Bar
Four Seasons is a brand found around the world. So to bridge the gap between Costa Rica and Miami, the recently opened Four Seasons Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagayo is bringing authentic fare from that Central American nation to the Magic City all week long. Executive chef of the resort's three new restaurant concepts, Mario Alcocer, is teaming up with native Aussie and 305 favorite Aaron Brooks for a weeklong collaboration of Tico meets Miami flavors. Think cartago salad prepared with kale, cashews, radishes, and a papa de dulce vinaigrette, and plantain-crusted Pacific sea bass served with avocado quinoa cannelon, corn purée, and citrus sauce. This urban-jungle-meets-Costa-Rican-jungle experience is available all week for lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch.
Craft Beer Week 50 Eggs
Drink up with 50 Eggs
May 11 through 17 is Craft Beer Week, and to celebrate suds, 50 Eggs is offering something special at every one of its eateries. Yardbird will host a tap takeover all week and proffer $7 beer flights. In the lineup: Boston Lager, Rebel IPA, Grumpy Monk, Downtime Pilsner, Oaked Dunkelweizen, and Pigs in a Blanket. Head to Swine Tuesday at 7 p.m. for a craft beer supper, where chef Jacob Anaya will pair specially selected brews with some Southern chow ($85). The fun continues Wednesday at Yardbird with a special beer-pairing menu featuring Wild Horse ale and Angry Orchard hard cider for $45, or a beauties and beer dinner at Khong River with Patricia Yao for $125.
Cena at Michy's
Michy's is back

In case you haven't heard, Michy's is back as Cena by Michy's, which means you've got a new place for supper. To run the show, Miami's culinary sweetheart has brought on quite the team: Illegal Bakery's Kelly Vazquez; James Sheyba, formerly of the Broken Shaker and 27 Restaurant & Bar; and chef de cuisine Mike Mayta, who led the kitchen at Michy's prior to its disco nap. Indulge in items such as roasted sunchokes with roasted almonds; spinach and feta croquettes with Sicilian orange marmalade; crunchy porchetta with braised peaches; and sweetbread tacos. No word yet whether Michy's famed fried chicken will make a comeback, but there's only one way to find out, and that's by having some cena at Michy's.
