Miami New Times' Description
Whisk Gourmet Food & Catering is warm and welcoming, with a clean and uncomplicated décor. A one-page menu echoes the comfort level via familiar and popular American favorites such as pulled pork on corn bread, low-country shrimp 'n' grits, and the good old BLT. The staff is all smiles, and at the end of the meal, the patrons tend to be happy as well -- including whoever picks up the exceedingly reasonable bill (starters under $10, entrees topping out at $22.95). The sign says, "Whisk Gourmet Food," but what makes the cuisine at this 75-seater so appealing is its non-gourmet nature. Sure, the fare is fresh and fine-quality, but that's not gourmet -- that's just good. For instance, pulled pork bathed in a tangy mustard-based barbecue sauce comes plunked atop a square of sturdy but tender cornbread. And Manchester Farms quail crowns a grits cake that's crisp on the outside and creamy-soft on the inside. The now famous Friday burger brings a beefy eight-ounce patty with a high pile of weekly themed garnishes. The Whisk burrito has likewise gained a loyal following; it bulges with big, moist morsels of mojo-marinated pulled pork lechon, jasmine rice, black beans, avocado, shredded Muenster cheese, pico de gallo, cilantro, and peppadew-spiked sour cream. Buttermilk fried chicken, low-country shrimp 'n' grits, grilled skirt steak, and pork loin chops are some of the other popular entrees. Key lime pie is one of the best in town. Whisk is a friendly, affordable, crowd-pleasing neighborhood restaurant. Miami needs more of them.
Tips from foursquare
Great location: nicely tucked away from the the busy sunset place area, plentiful parking spaces, and great dinning room. Everything on the menu rocks.
Best food in town. Parking's tough.
Turkey and cranberry sandwich is like having thanksgiving leftovers all year! AMAZING yummy yummy yummy
Fried Green Tomatoes in Miami! Yes. Delicious.
This place is two small to dine-in comfortably, but the food is delicious! I hear they are looking for a larger space, so I would just do take-out for now! Menu is online.
