Bar Louie Midtown Miami

Bar Louie Midtown Miami
3201 N Miami Ave
786-879-8260




The decor is cute: environment reads relaxed, hip but grown up, sports bar vibe with low lighting and crowd was a mixture of people from various age groups from around Miami. I don’t mind too much for decor, my concern is food and alcohol.


I came in to Bar Louie on a Tuesday Night, located on the ground level of the midtown shops in Miami, FL. They have an awesome deal dollar burger Tuesdays. The burger itself was tasty, portion size decent, and it wasn’t too greasy. Each topping is an extra charge, the burger was good and good value but I am going to try their chicken wings next time. The men's bathroom was clean, which is a surprise. What was lacking for me was the drinks they were weak, I been to other bars in high density areas with similar price points but healthier amounts of liquor.

This place is great to go with a group of friends have beers, watch sports on tv or go on an informal date with your spouse or friend who happens to frequent or live in surrounding area. If you are looking for a good value on your liquor consumption look elsewhere.

Tomasa Corporation

Tomasa 

Venezuelan Restaurant in Doral, FL 
5401 NW 79th Ave, Doral FL , 33166. 
ph. 308-781-8078 

I came in to this restaurant because I had a coupon from restaurant.com but apparently the business has closed and it's now a new owner/name. I was unable to use my coupon. 

In the spirit of trying new places and keeping positive attitude(s), I decided to order lunch anyway. 

There bar area where I sat for my to go order is clean. I did not ask waitress for the price because I thought it would be under 10.00. 

All I wanted was (1) cachapa.  I am surprised, when I see my bill that it's this expensive for a corn tortilla stuffed with cheese. 

When my to go order comes, I look at it and I am disgusted that it comes with an excessive amount of meat as a side. I am not vegetarian and I do eat meat, but jesus Christ it was more than 6 oz of meat next to my cachapa -- that's just gross.

I ate like 1/3 of the meat served, which was dry and hard. The rest of the meat or majority of the meat went in the garbage. The cachapa was good but I had better. 

Verdict: 
I will not be coming back to this restaurant ever again due to over-priced mediocre food. 

 

Piola South Beach

Piola South Beach, 1625 Alton Road, Miami Beach, FL, 33139.

This pizza place is 1 minute walking south bound from Regal Cinema in Lincoln Road Mall. 

I thought the pizza would be good since this place always has patrons inside at all hours of the day. I was wrong, and my friend also thought the pizza was not as expected. 

Dine in- environment is casual, and price for drinks and food is on the lower end. But due to it being Lincoln Road, I expected it to be more expensive and higher quality of food.

The pizza was hot and ingredients are fresh but pizza-bread was not hard it was soft and soggy, the pizza needed more time in the oven. 

On the plus side, the waiter did bring me and my guest free shots to try, and the shots were awesome. 

Verdict: I won't be coming here for food.
However, $5.00 for a beer and great shots, and casual environment. This place is great for friends to meet up, for a casual date, or for locals and tourists to create new friendships.
