The Broken Shaker Restaurant Review: The Broken Shaker is located in a mostly residential part of Miami Beach on the grounds of Freehand Miami, a renovated Art Deco boutique hostel. At the helm are mixologists Gabriel Orta and Elad Zvi of Bar Lab, who started the place as a pop-up. The walled bar yard has a pool, ping pong tables, mismatched patio furniture, hammocks and edible gardens where herbs and produce grow for the seasonal, hand-crafted cocktails. Consider the Florida Back Alley (vodka, smoked ancho chiles, tangerines, bitters and herbs), salted caramel old fashioned, or kale and pineapple caipirinha. Bar bites include mojo pork tacos and crispy grit balls with kimchi aïoli. A fruity botanical cocktail makes for a liquid dessert.
