Cafeina Restaurant Review

: Located in emerging, still-edgy Wynwood, the Cafeina complex is not so much a dining destination as an alternative lounge, event space and art gallery with plush couches. The large walled outdoor patio garden with a DJ spinning vinyl makes the place feel more like a hipster nightclub and many patrons come here for cocktails like the signature café con leche martini made with coffee-infused vodka, Amarula liqueur and crème de cacao. But late-night tapas are worth a try: bacon-wrapped dates stuffed with chorizo; crispy boneless baby-back ribs with guava barbecue sauce; mini ahi tacos; and sliders with aged Gouda and a crunchy onion ring.
