Wine-ing up in Wywood

Nothing beats a rainy day like hanging out with good girlfriends. Luckily, one of my nearest and dearest was visiting Miami and we didn’t let a few clouds get in our way!


We started the wet and stormy day under cover at Wynwood Diner, a newfound staple in the heart of the arts district. They serve breakfast all day (yay!) and have a great cocktail selection. I came across frosé on the menu and I just had to try it. It was the perfect amount of sweetness and slushiness married together. We paired it with a variety of breakfast goodies – poached eggs on avocado toast with truffle fries, chicken and waffles, scrambled eggs and salmon, and duck hash (nom for days). I always recommend this place for its ambiance and straightforward dishes.


After our delicious meal, we desired a change of scenery and braved the scattered showers to stop by GKBistronomie, a cute spot off the main drag which serves global-inspired Peruvian food. We didn’t have anything to eat, but the place was really cute – even had a small outdoor courtyard area. We toasted with a bottle of Collefrisio Le Cave della Guardiuccia Brut Rosé. The grapes are Pinor Noir and the sparkling wine is aged for 36 months. It was pale pink in color and had some great bubbles. It’s light and crisp, both on the nose and palate, with hints of berries. We of course were up-charged at the restaurant, but I found it online for about $30. It was a pretty solid bubbly. 3/5.

With the rain finally subsiding, we decided to burn off some of the calories with a walk around the Wynwood Walls, the perfect place for some Instagram-worthy photos. I couldn’t have asked for a better day with my bestie, rain and all!
