Charcoal Garden Bar + Grill, The Wynwood Yard, 82 NW 29th St., Miami, FL 33127, 786-646-2998.
 
The team behind NIU Kitchen are heating things up with neighboring charcoal-centric Arson. The menu utilizes a handful of Italian and Asian ingredients, and the emphasis is on the Josper grill, Spain's claim to charcoal-burning fame. Out of it come dishes like Patagonian lamb chops with cauliflower purée and mint oil; duck two ways (charbroiled and cured) with apple textures and honey mustard bread; and tagliatelle with cuttlefish doused in its corresponding squid ink, piquant tomato sofrito and tangy aïoli. Arson, 104 NE 2nd Ave., Miami, FL 33132, 786-717-6711.
