With a minimalist approach, and a keen attention to artsy detail, the restaurant is inviting and relaxed.
You will find a variety of pictures and papers taped to the walls, along with a bike that seems to float in midair. A series of washing machines frame the bar and kitchen area, while a subliminal sign overhead speaks of how we all need to remain grounded because that's what life is about. .
The Asian fusion menu the couple offer stems from their extensive travels through the area and their passion for that part of the world. They believe in following a simple lifestyle that includes good friends, good food and a healthy lifestyle, and that's what they say they want their patrons to experience time and time again. I went with a good friend of mine to check out The Gang Miami and we sampled several of their dishes. We had a nice time, chilled a bit and enjoyed an eclectic mix of flavors that left us feeling good.
|Chilled Green Papaya Salad|
|Shrimp Dumplings Soup|
|Arugula Edamame Tuna Salad|
|Mamaliga with Foie Gras|
|Vietnamese Pork Rolls|
|Boo Shrimp Tempura|
While I really wanted to try some of The Gang Miami's main dishes, I just didn't have any room. I will definitely have to come back for that because they sound very interesting. But, I did have to satisfy my sweet tooth, so we shared what appeared to be half cocktail, half dessert. It was their version of thai donuts, with a tantalizing blend of strawberries and honey.
