I love discovering new things to do in Miami. One can easily take living here for granted. It wasn’t until I moved away (twice) that I realized the grass isn’t always greener on the other side and my hometown is pretty damn cool.
The newest spot in Wynwood is 1800-Lucky, an Asian themed food hall. Wtf is a food hall, you ask? It’s bougie-hipster speak for food court or multi-vendor cafeteria. 1800-Lucky offers cuisine from China (menu pictured), bahn mi sandwiches courtesy of Vietnam, Korean Ramen and of course, the hipsters’ favorite, sushi.
Unfortunately, I am useless and can’t tell you how the food is. I have my local mom n’ pop Asian restaurants around the city that I love and adore and I can’t stomach paying $11 for vegetarian lo mein. I checked out their Yelp page before going and maybe that’s what discouraged me from overpaying for relatively cheap food (if purchased elsewhere)? Nevertheless, what I did try for you all were the drinks (obviously).
I ordered a traditional made with Knob Creek Whiskey. This $16 drink (gratuity included) had me in the clouds by the time I was finished. I also love the giant ice cube and the fresh zest garnish.
They have an extensive bar, so all of you brand connoisseurs, rejoice!
Outside, there’s a DJ spinning and an ice cream bar with the cutest lil ice cream cones! The waffle cone has red beans at the bottom. I didn’t get one because I opted to drink my calories, but my gal pal got the unicorn cone.
Along with the dining options inside, there’s also a novelty shop selling all kinds of goodies.
At night, this place is JUMPING and definitely worth a pop in while you’re making your Wynwood rounds. Great drinks, cool atmosphere, (insert opinion about food here) eats… 1-800-Lucky awaits you.
See you on the flip side,
