NIU Kitchen: Playful Catalan Cuisine in Downtown Miami

Downtown Miami, a stone's throw from tourist trap Bayside, seems like the least likely of places to house the chic and quiet Catalonian venue NIU Kitchen. At night, this part of NE Second Ave. has a sleepy, nondescript feel, and we almost walk passed the glass doors. Thank the food gods that we didn't.
