Within walking distance from the Wynwood Walls is Pride and Joy, is a Caronlinas-inspired restaurant serving up the best barbecue in the neighborhood. Stroll into this rustic Southern hotspot, past the mosaic of vintage beer cans and the saddle-back booths, to a worn wooden bar as you smell the seductive scent of this smokin’-hot barbecue joint. Pride and Joy serves silky and succulent bites straight from their custom built smokers paired with homemade sauces.We make a stop here in order to sample some of their hearty-fare.
If you’re looking to experience Miami like a local, look no further than the vibrant Wynwood. Sometimes known as “El Barrio” due to its high concentration of Puerto Rican influences, Wynwood is a place where you can explore the growing art and culinary scene in our city. Graffiti-decorated walls created by local artists fill the area, creating an atmosphere of what the true Miami is like. The art on the walls are matched by the art that chefs are serving at their restaurants, and the Wynwood Food Tour succeeds are expressing how bohemian and culturally significant the area is becoming to the city.
