Where I Go Out

At My Venues

Octopus with aji panca
$$, Outdoor Seating, Reservations, Seafood, Restaurant, Tapas, Fulton Ferry
"This is one of the most memorable bites I’ve had in Miami. It was our first stop when we came to town; I loved the look and feel of it, and couldn't help but be drawn in. I’m a sucker for octopus, but it has to be done well. Timon nails it. I like my spice, especially Peruvian anticucho, and this dish has all that: perfectly braised, grilled octopus off the robata, topped with a phenomenal red pepper sauce. The balance of salty and sour with heat and barbecue make this dish an absolute winner."
Bone marrow
$$, Outdoor Seating, Reservations, Seafood, Restaurant, Tapas, Fulton Ferry
"Timon combines oxtail marmalade and bone marrow to make a complete heaven of richness between the fat in the bone marrow and the tang from the marmalade. This is truly a palate pleaser."
Shellfish seviche
$$, Outdoor Seating, Reservations, Seafood, Restaurant, Tapas, Fulton Ferry
"Sugarcane always has an incredible selection at the raw bar and I love everything on it, but I always order the shellfish seviche. The lime and sweet potatoes have an incredible balance of flavors and lots of harmony."
Bone marrow
$$, Outdoor Seating, Reservations, Seafood, Restaurant, Tapas, Fulton Ferry
"It’s the little things… The perfectly cooked bone marrow, grilled bread, and butter get me every time. I love this stuff. It’s sweet and fatty, the marmalade is perfection, and the buttery bone marrow is great for spreading on toast."
