But even with all that delicious food, sometimes you just want a drink and a nosh at the bar -- especially during Miami summers, when a big, bubbling plate of cavatelli (even made by the skilled hands of Dena Marina) is just too daunting.

Almost as if reading our minds, chef Marino has launched a bar menu, filled with light fare and refreshing libations. Marino tells us that she created the menu to cater to neighborhood customers. "I wanted to make something fun and easy, but of course delicious. I came up with some items that are a twist on traditional bar food."

Items include the chef's famous Aspen truffle fries with brown truffle gravy ($13); stone oven roasted jumbo chicken wings ($14); crispy Louisiana oyster fritti with backyard mango vinaigrette ($14), and a salumi and cheese board ($24).
