The building that houses the Anderson has been a bar for far longer than most of us have been alive. Restaurateur Ken Lyon has given the space new life by revitalizing the beloved Magnum Lounge with jazz nights and a menu of classic dishes like a "square" burger and steak frites. Outside, a lush garden setting is home to El Toro Taco, a taco joint and bar. Taken together, this beloved gem, located on the 79th Street Causeway a block east of Biscayne Boulevard, is part dive bar, part elegant lounge, part garden taco stand: a trio of wonderful things that can only be combined in Miami.
