Balans Restaurant Review

: Balans’ menu has something for everyone, from pot stickers to baby-back ribs with bourbon barbecue sauce. This contemporary London import turns out global and regional American comfort fare in a fun, modern setting that has become a staple of Miami dining. Local hipsters who wisely opt to get home at a reasonable hour on Saturday night gather Sunday morning with newspapers and dogs for brunch. In the evening, Balans is popular with those in search of an interesting, light meal, a bottle of wine and conversation. Options include jambalaya, a mushroom tofu patty, and Indonesian egg noodles with vegetables in sweet soy. But the lobster club wrap towers over all the other items on offer combined. Other locations.
