With all the stop and go on whether you can dine inside or outside, it’s hard to tell which restaurants are open for indoor dining. Here’s a guide on where to dine inside to avoid the Miami Heat (no pun intended, because they’re winning).

Barton G announced the resume of their indoor dining. There are temperature checks at the door, hand sanitation stations are available throughout the establishment, and you can make reservations for up to six. Even the valet will be sanitizing the driver seat and steering wheel of vehicles. See menu and reservations link here

Bulla Gastrobar has the best of both indoor and outdoor seating. Visit the Doral, Coral Gables, or The Falls locations for lunch, dinner, happy hour, and weekend brunch. Click here to make a Reservation

La Mesa Miami is back as of Thursday, the Coral Way spot is ready to seat you inside for brunch. A.K.A con aire frio. Here you can order tapas, salads, and Miami food such as Arroz con Huevo (Grilled churrasco over rice with fried eggs, spicy ketchup, scallion and grilled lemon). Make your reservation by calling (786) 703-3907. 

Take it slow on this next one, because Tap 42 is back with Bottomless Brunch. This Saturday, Sunday, and Monday all the locations will offer $25 bottomless Mimosas, Blood Marys, Funky Buddha Floridian and 42 Hazy Daze from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. You can make reservations for parties of up to six. You can also enter for a chance to win a Labor Day Bottomless Brunch here.

You can eat your Florida Alligator Strips, Frita, and drink your Guava Shake again at the LoKal. The servers are wearing masks and are following guidelines to keep the safe and community safe. You can view the menu before you visit here

The home of the Ruoto di Parmigiano (tableside experience of parmigiano-reggiano cheese), Divieto is also open for indoor service as of last Monday. The three locations (Doral, Aventura Mall, and Estero) are also offering takeout and delivery services.

Aside from the tasty protein bars, KIND Snacks just gave us another reason to love the brand even more. It just launched its first ever cereal in four flavors exclusively at Walmart.

Think of the new cereal as a protein bar in a bowl. Each box is packed full of all the healthy goodness you’d expect from KIND, including your dose of protein. The four flavors, inspired by their most popular nut bars are gluten free and contain 5-6 grams of protein per serving. 

The flavors include Dark Chocolate Almond ($6.98) complete with almonds, dark chocolate, cocoa and super grain flakes. Apple Cinnamon ($6.98) with cinnamon apples, pumpkin seeds and super grain flakes. Honey Almond includes almonds, toasted coconut and super grain flakes. And Cranberry Almond with almonds, cranberries and super grain flakes.
