Groove and Feast: Restaurants throughout Miami-Dade and Broward have added live music to their menus. On Miami Beach, Villa Azur invites DJ Stephan M. to raise the roof on Wine Down Wednesdays and Cosmo Night Fridays; he’s joined by a live saxophonist during the Thursday Night Dinner Soiree. In Fort Lauderdale, on the first weekend of each month, diners at Casa Sensei can feast on Pan-Asian/Latin-Fusion dishes while enjoying live performances during the Rock N Roll Brunch. Meanwhile, Quarterdeck’s flagship location on Southeast 17th Streets features acoustic performers on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 7 to 10 p.m.
Perhaps the best way to celebrate National Cheeseburger Day is to make your own burger. At Quarterdeck, you can build your own with toppings such as sautéed onions, mushrooms, pickle spear, coleslaw, pepper jack cheese, cheddar cheese, goat cheese, buffalo mozzarella, fried egg, bacon, marinara sauce, avocado, guacamole, pico de gallo, beer-battered onion rings, chili, and jalapeños and more. Starting at $10.99, you can pair it coleslaw, french fries or tater tots.
