With its Cuban tile, Caribbean flair, and casual vibe, I want to move into this restaurant. Stat. This was my first visit to Zest and certainly won’t be my last. I mostly stuck to Miami Spice, but there’s much to be explored on the main menu. Hello, Fried Chicken & Fried Green Tomato Salad!
What I tried:
HIT: I cannot choose just one dish. I’m newly #obZest with both the Niman Ranch Pork Chop and Braised Pork Belly! I woke up thinking about them the next morning. Shoot, I’ll even take just a bowl of the forbidden rice that accompanied the pork belly right now. The Pan Seared Snapper in a Goan style curry was another favorite. Overall, Zest delivered homestyle eats with a poised edge and the utmost quality ingredients.
BONUS: Although I chose to sit inside, the action outside estaba caliente. Miami beats played, cocktails flowed, and our city triumphantly celebrated Irma’s departure. Come for drinks, and/or zestfully stay for the food.
