Courtesy Whole Foods Market
Whole Foods Market has upped its food game with the debut of a Dadeland location. The 46,000-square-foot store stocks the usual organic foods, wines, craft beers, and ready-to-eat foods. It also offers a bevy of items from Miami purveyors, a coffee bar, a juice bar on tap, and a gastropub. Customers can shop for favorites such as Zak the Baker, Natalie's Orchid Island Juice Company, and Panther Coffee. In addition, the Allegro coffee bar serves nitro cold brew, and juices on tap can be custom-made at the juice bar. The biggest draw, however, is El Bocadillo. The first in-house gastropub at a Miami-area Whole Foods serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. In addition to listing burgers and personal pizzas, the menu includes lechón el bocadillo ($15), chicharrones ($7), and lionfish ceviche ($15). 7939 SW 104th St., Miami; 305-969-5800; wholefoodsmarket.com. Open 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
Sticky-Bun Doughnut Collab With Knaus Berry Farm at the Salty Donut.
The Wynwood-based shop has revived its legendary sticky-bun doughnut in collaboration with Knaus Berry Farm. Drenched in a roasted-pecan/toffee-rum glaze and topped with caramelized pecans, the cinnamon-roll/doughnut mashup ($6) will be available through January 21. And this year, there will be no customer limit; last year, the shop restricted orders to one per person. Stop by for your fix Tuesday through Sunday (the shop is closed Monday) through January 21. Weekdays tend to be quieter, but nothing is off-limits when it comes to the sticky-bun doughnut. Arrive hungry and prepare to wait in line. Through Sunday, January 21, at the Salty Donut, 50 NW 23rd St., Miami; 305-925-8126; saltydonut.com.
