SOUTH BEACH — Siena Tavern, the Miami beach outpost of Chicago restaurant, has a signature dish with a singular online persona. The @sienameatball Twitter account, based the anthropomorphic point-of-view Fabio Viviani's appetizer meatball, tweets poignant observations about the restaurant industry like "Just stained some dude's shirt. LOL!" After you've read her missives (yes, the meatball is a girl), put your phone away and try the bombolini for dessert.
MIAMI BEACH — Jalapeño Mexican Kitchen is hosting a grand opening opening party on Thursday, December 11. Executive chef Miguel Faget will offer complimentary signature margaritas and small bites. A DJ and a mariachi band will be present at the kick-off event on Ocean Drive.
