The Scoop

    BICOASTAL BITES

    Malibu Farm Pier Café and Restaurant, the mogul- and celeb-spotted, farm-to-fork destination on Billionaire’s Beach overlooking the Pacific Ocean, expanded to the East Coast. Shortened to Malibu Farm, the organic restaurant adds to the Nobu Hotel Miami Beach’s dining options. Having grown up with fresh produce, meat and seafood in Sweden, chef founder Helene Henderson has never known anything but locally sourced whole foods. In addition to her signature dishes like a chicken ricotta burger with spicy aioli and coconut tofu with seasonal veggies and quinoa, her new location exclusively features a wood-burning pizza oven. She folds healthy ingredients (cauliflower, zucchini) into her pizza dough and tops pies with local ingredients like callaloo greens and bacon from Miami Smokers. Cocktails are healthier, too, thanks to fresh fruit juices and herbs.

    COMFORT CROWD-PLEASERS

    West Palm Beach’s busy parents and professionals have a new quick spot for daily brunch and dinner on South Dixie Highway. Mazie’s opened in a homey setting with brick, wood beams and black-and-white family photos. Designer Scotty Wonders’ signature rustic look can also be found at Zak the Baker and Wynwood Yard, among other South Florida projects. Chef partner Eric Baker comes from Max’s Harvest in Delray Beach, where he was executive chef, and his eatery’s name honors his grandmother. He teamed up with couple Jason and Sandra Lakow, general manager and sommelier, respectively, for a global comfort food concept. Starters such as Moroccan lamb knish with apricot yogurt, smoked fish with mini bagels and warm curried crab dip with naan are just a taste of the menu’s immense diversity.
