Bocadoro140 NE 39th St., Miami
miamarket.com/bocadoroA new restaurant has joined the vendor lineup at MIA Market. Hailing from Ibiza, Spain, newly opened Bocadoro focuses on creating the "perfect bite" with a menu of upmarket sandwiches, small plates, salads, and meat/cheese boards. The sandwiches, however, can't be missed — a half-dozen options prepared on traditional pan de cristal (a style of bread from the Catalan region of Spain). Options include the "El Padrino," a combination of jamón Iberico, stracciatella, arugula, and tomato, and the "El Verde," a blend of grilled local vegetables, arugula, green and red pesto, and a balsamic glaze. Noon to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and noon to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
Frank Pepe Pizzeria341 N. University Dr., Plantation
order.pepespizzeria.comConnecticut-based Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana — widely known as "Pepe's Pizza” — has opened its first South Florida location in Plantation. The restaurant joins the new Plantation Walk shopping plaza to offer diners eat-in and takeout options. The 97-year-old brand is known for its unique pizza — pronounced “ah’beetz” — from the Italian phrase la pizza used by early immigrants who settled in New Haven. Today, it's used to describe true New Haven-style pizza, distinguished by its thin, oblong crust, characteristic coal-oven char, chewy texture, and limited use of cheese. Open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
