Wabi Sabi

Wabi Sabi means the beauty of imperfection, stemming from Buddhist tradition. Shuji’s bowl joint is far from imperfect. It is one of the most beautiful laid back nooks in Miami, with delicious food to boot. You definitely don't want to miss out on this place. He offers a different daily menu and if you bring your own bowl you get a dollar off your meal. After lunch or dinner grab a record next door at Technique Records.

Saturdays at the Park

Rent a paddle board Saturday morning in one of the most stunning parks in Miami, Morningside Park, and head to one the islands. Finish off your exercise by going 10 blocks north, and grab an organic juice, with Clive, at the Upper Eastside Farmer’s market at Legion Park. You can also jump in on a yoga class, by donation, at 10 am. Take your pick.

The Anderson

Locals know this joint as the infamous Magnum Piano Bar, which was converted into a much-needed neighborhood bar. The hallway, made for selfies, takes you into a retro vibe. A tropical outdoor space provides boozy slushies and a super cute chill out area. Come for happy hour and stay for live music. Never a dull moment at the Anderson. If you get hungry, they've carefully curated a menu for the munchies.
