eatIt’s somewhat rare to come across a Miami restaurant that serves up a neighborly nice-to-see-you-stay-awhile vibe and absolutely killer food at great prices. Uva 69 is just such a place, and it is a pretty good poster-child for the up and coming MiMo District on upper Biscayne. Featuring a tight menu of eclectic international fusion, a tasty wine list, and plenty of swank vibe, this is a great destination to impress a date or hang with the regulars. Unlike many of its happening brethren, it welcomes hipsters of all ages, right down to the tater-tots in strollers. Friday-Sun, put a civilized end to your hangover with a leisurely latte, and a Breakfast of Champions Burrito for less than your previous night’s cocktail on South Beach. Other lunch and dinner favs include the Fig Crostini appetizer ($6.00), Shaved Tomato Salad with Parmesan ($8.95), La Minuta grilled mahi-mahi sandwich ($8.95), and the superlative Salmon Fillet on a Bed of Bonito Mashed Potatoes with Crispy Spinach ($17.95). Seriously, nothing on the menu has ever been less than stellar, so no matter what your taste, you’ll tickle your tongue at Uva 69. My one complaint: I want the menu to either expand or change a little more frequently because this is the kind of place I’d like to visit even more frequently than I already do.
