Over the past three months, many of Miami’s top chefs, including the Design District’s Dena Marino, have noticeably slimmed down. It wasn’t because of a crazy new diet regime it was because they were all participating in a friendly fitness fundraiser and competition called Fit to Fight.

On Wednesday September 10th, The District Miami, hosted the Taste For The Arts fundraising dinner to benefit the Copperbridge Foundation as part of Copper Fest.

Coming this Fall is an exciting new addition to the Design District’s growing restaurant scene. Tony Gallo and Pietro Vardeu, the team behind Sardinia Enoteca Ristorante, have announced plans to open a new regional Italian restaurant in the neighborhood in the former Egg & Dart space.  

Whether you’re going gluten free due to health concerns or just looking to clean up your diet, gluten-free dining is here to stay. The Design District is a great place to head if you’re looking to avoid the starchy grain altogether and still have a delicious meal.

It’s undeniable that the dog days of Summer are made for brunch. There aren’t too many things more refreshing than enjoying a cool drink and a good meal to help beat the heat. And that’s just what The District Miami had in mind when it launched its new brunch this month.
