PAPER Magazine always does this to Johnny Boy, I see the exciting and super creative / innovative things they put together, then i discover it's not in Miami, rather in NYC when i'm not there, like their Super (Duper) Market, showcasing the best in food, packaging, gourmet wares, etc. Take note also that TODAY is the last day, it's located at 410 West 16th Street until 4pm, so get moving NY'ers.

This Super (Duper) Market is what Johnny Boy wants to put together in Miami, even down to the name and graphics.  Paper Magazine, please call / email me so when can discuss :-)  You know how to reach me. I really wanted to checkout Shorty Tang and Sons Stand, better known as the Tang Brothers, I hear they have the BEST noodles, well according to Kim :-)  But below are two I def want in Miami:

I mean, who hasn't heard of Red Rooster Harlem, brainchild of Chef Marcus Samuelsson, but not everyone has had the opportunity to taste his food, so take note, on July 26th in Miami, the man will be here at Michael's Genuine Food & Drink for 1 night only cooking a four course family style meal...click here to check out the menu + to buy tickets, click here

Miami always needs a good delicatessen like Mile End from Brooklyn...bagels, lox, freshly cured + cut deli meats, the works.  Johnny Boy is speaking about freshly baked bagels, a bit hard on the outside and soft on the inside, like how Bagel Bob's had them on University Place in the village.

All in all, I want the Super (Duper) Market here asap, and strongly believe the culinary scene in Miami can definitely be up to par with its New York Counterpart.  We have everyone from Josh's Delicatessen to Pubbelly and Mandolin's new market to smaller, lesser known shops like The Football Sandwich Shop.  Johnny Boy will scoure local Miami to find the best of the best, not just restaurants, but local gourmet packaged goods + wares!  Let's do it PAPER :-)  Any local foodies, send me suggestions!

Side Note:  Call me Gary Pini, let’s make this happen :-)  miss you in miami
