Now you have a high-tech — and high-end — store to buy and sip wine in the Design District, thanks to the newly opened Abaco Premium Wines setting up shop right in Palm Court.

Not many chefs can say they had a hand in helping create the wine they are serving at their restaurant’s wine dinners, but The Genuine Hospitality Group’s Michael Schwartz isn’t your average chef.

One Thursday a month, the Design District’s new pop-up concept by Michael Schwartz, ella, stays open late to feature a pop-up dinner by its award-winning owner, playfully called ella after.

It’s every foodie’s favorite time of the year — Miami Spice! Now in its 14th year, Miami Spice runs from August 1 through September 30 across nearly 200 local restaurants across South Florida including 53 new participants. The eateries will offer three-course meals priced at $23 for lunch and $39 for dinner, with some of the best deals being found in the Design District.

Earlier this summer, the highly-acclaimed event Wine Bar Wars came to the Design District’s Moore Building. It’s the first time the event has ever taken place outside of New York City — and the Design District’s own team reigned victorious.
