Miami’s best new restaurants of 2021 – Miami Herald

This is the version of the Cuban-American diner that chef Michael Beltran imagined when he first opened Chug’s in 2019. After a year-long expansion, it’s an all-hours diner, where you can get his cast-iron pancake for (all-day) breakfast, a shaved eye round pan con bistec with oxtail jus for dipping at lunch, a frita-stuffed pastelito from sous chef Gio Fesser for a snack, and Beltran’s upscale take on meatloaf for dinner. Oh, and cocktails until 2 a.m. on the weekends.
