CHARCOAL Garden Bar + Grill in Miami’s popular Wynwood Yard has created an outstanding summer wine program.
Throughout summer, guests receive half-off any and all wine bottles with dinner when ordered between 5:30 p.m. to 6:45 p.m. on Fridays through Sundays. The offerings range from a half-priced bottle of wine on tap at just $15 to half-off a 3-2-1-0 Philippe Gonet Champagne for $63 and everything in between.
In addition, Tuesdays through Thursdays, Charcoal has half-priced bottles of wine on draft, with red and white selections from Bordeaux available.
The restaurant’s curated wine list features nine sparkling selections – from Prosecco to Cremant d’Alsace – and six Champagnes, along with six rosés and twenty-four selections of white and red wines, respectively.
Charcoal’s “analog” menu features chilled and fire-roasted dishes such as local garden greens spiked with Calabrian chili and anchovy-infused olive oil and Point Judith calamari served warm with potatoes, celery, zesty lemon and green olive oil.
Charcoal’s Florida-family-farm-raised meats, including pasture-raised heritage chicken, are fired up on the Josper grill using only real charcoal and served with a choice of sauces, including romesco, pesto, and saffron aioli.
The eatery’s choucroute garnie platter includes grilled, locally-sourced Proper sausage, slow Josper-roasted pork belly and fall-off-the-bone pork shoulder accompanied by beer-braised, house-cured sauerkraut, tiny potatoes, and grainy Dijon, along with a half-off bottle of Rudi Pichler Gruner Veltliner. There also is the grilled Florida McCoy Ranch-raised beef hanger steak served with blistered red onion with a half-priced bottle of Sicilian Merello Mascalese Tenuta Fessina Erse.
The newly opened Charcoal is one of the country’s first-ever full-service restaurants built entirely out of a collection of modified shipping containers. Air-conditioned indoor seating and patio outdoor seating are available. The new retractable Roman shade provides additional comfort for dining outdoors.
