Former NFL player Stephen Tulloch has opened his second Circle House Coffee location in Fort Lauderdale. The drive-thru coffee shop often partners with other businesses in the community to raise and donate money to local and global charities. Circle House is known for its CBD-infused drinks, hot and iced teas, house-made horchata, vegan-friendly beverage options, and "drinkable selfies," where an in-house foam-printing machine allows for customizable latte art. Pair your drink with sweet treats — cakes, pies, or Mojo Donuts — or for something more substantial, house-made sandwiches, wraps, and empanadas. Open Monday through Friday from 5:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., and 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

Finding good barbecue in Miami just got even easier thanks to Izzy's Brooklyn Smokehouse chef/owner Sruli "Izzy" Eidelman. The Brooklyn-born pit boss recently opened his third location — and the first in Florida — in Aventura. The newly renovated space serves top-quality meats smoked on the premises in an all-wood smoker and finished on a live-fire wood-oven pit. Described as Texas-style with a Brooklyn-Jewish twist, the menu is 100 percent kosher and features brisket, beef ribs, turkey, chicken, and more. Open Sunday through Thursday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Terras offers a menu of elevated urban street fare with dishes inspired from Latin America, Mexico, and the Caribbean. Designed to evoke the feeling of being at an urban rooftop garden, the all-day menu features shareable plates such as Alcapurrias, pork or vegetarian moles, tacos, and ceviche served tapas-style to highlight the space's communal atmosphere served alongside cocktails that highlight fresh juices and hand-picked garnishes. Open Monday and Tuesday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., Wednesday from 8 a.m. to midnight, Friday and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 2 a.m., and 8 a.m. to midnight on Sunday.
