Southern-Styled Crackers Casual Dining Is a Neighborhood Favorite for Good Reason

Jeff Mitnick doesn't hide the fact that part of his cooking technique came from mimicking what he watched for hours on Food Network. He even repurposed some of the made-for-TV dishes for his homey, country-meets-Florida Keys restaurant. The bacon jam, a cult favorite since he and his wife Jo opened Crackers Casual Dining in Miami Springs in 2012, is one of them. It comes smeared generously onto burgers and fried chicken, though it's most popular as an appetizer, encircled by toasted rounds dusted with garlic, paprika, and parsley.
