Sneak Review: Grateful Bread

First, the answer: The sancocho pictured above and in last weeks' Where It At? is taken from the specials menu at Grateful Bread.

And now, the abbreviated sneak preview of the New Times restaurant review for next week:

Our strongest recommendation from Grateful Bread's regular menu is chicken Veracuzano, the tender breast meat bathed in a sauté of tomatoes, peppers, onions, olives, capers, and parsley -- accompanied by rice, beans, and steamy corn tortillas.

Grateful Bread 927 NE 125th St; 305-873-6440.

Moises' Venezuelan empanada rocks, the half-moon dough tasting of corn meal, fried to soft consistency, and plumped with moist shreds of chicken or beef. As the juice drips down your chin, you'll be thinking about just how well your three dollars have been spent.

Moises Bakery 7310 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 305-868-0548.
