Miami's busy season has arrived, bringing a slew of visitors to the city. With the tourists, Miami Art Week, and Art Basel come new restaurants.
This month, chef Timon Balloo opened Balloo: Modern Home Cooking, a delightful little eatery that offers a rotating menu of soulful dishes. And Lorena Garcia debuted Chica, a gorgeous restaurant that offers dishes influenced by the chef's beloved Venezuela and other Latin American countries.
