From the large painting of the Mexican wrestler on the wall to the convivial staff who excel at making diners feel like amigos and the guacamole-making station where patrons can watch the staff create the restaurant’s signature guacs, it’s clear that La Cerveceria De Barrio is not going to be the average Miami meal. For example, the Shrimp Mole replaces the traditional chicken with a shellfish flavor burst and adds 36 Mexican spices for a meal that is a fiesta on the tongue. Each bite of the subtly seasoned, coal-grilled Octopus Taco is a delightful flavor burst. The Homemade Corn Cake is a modestly named, unexpectedly sweet treat. The menu, curated by Mexican Chef Ricardo Martinez, focuses on tried & true traditional Mexican dishes from each of the country’s 7 regions. Patrons at both the Lincoln Road and Ocean Drive locations have the added bonus of being able to sit outside and enjoy the wide diversity of people-watching from every angle;
