Pinch Kitchen has a superb chef and whoever is at the stove is doing things right, not to mention the most welcoming staff team. We loved everything we ordered — the gambas, croquetas and brussel sprouts are delicious and definitely save room for their desserts-of-the-day...— especially if they have creme brûlée, flan and chocolate chip cookies. We will definitely go back soon.More

I was a bit concerned about going because of the exterior and entry door... I prefer modern, open-glass, light and bright restaurants (just a personal choice) and Pinch is in what appears to be an older, smallish house converted to a restaurant with an exterior...add-on in the back. But once I entered - it was fine.. "comfy", clean and sort of art-decoish (a little) homey. However, the amazingly bright stars of Pinch are a) the interesting menu, b) the tastiness of the food - simply terrific flavors and c) the authentic, prompt and professional service. I'm a huge fan and look forward to MANY visits to eat my way through the menu.More

My husband and I found this restaurant on Open Table and went on the strength of reviews. The place is small but the food was very good! My husband had the octopus and the shrimp and was very happy with both. I had the burger...based on reviews and it was quite good also. And the focaccia was excellent! We both had the Lemonade cocktail - can't remember if that was the actual name - but it was also very good as was one of the house red wines that my husband went with for his entrée drink. The service got a little slow toward the end of the meal as they got busier but there was no rush to push us out quickly so we were happy to enjoy the evening and people watch while we waited for the bill.More

The menu is American but with a unique spin introducing different flavors that are not so common. I went with family and felt good the place is old school antique mix & match furniture. We had brunch, the food was very tasty.I did find it...to be a bit pricey however, I loved the soup of the day, butternut squash, creamy and savory. Service was good, the place doesn't look like much but its worth a try.More

We stop at Pinch with my son and his family and always have a great meal. they go more often too, and that reinforces our comments. The wine choices, the service for the kids and the delicious meals are like being at a family event--esp...the appetizer plate and the bread and honey! our condo is only a few miles away so we'll be camped here regularlyMore

The food and service was great. They were able to accommodate eight people at 9pm on a Saturday night. I will return and recommend.

Thanks to the lunch invite of a dear friend, I finally found myself at the charming PINCH Kitchen last week. I’ve been meaning to go since its opening because I’ve heard nothing but good things. Perhaps because it is located just a wee bit north...of the main MiMo dining district I haven’t, so shame on me. This is just a lovely spot with the kind of genuinely friendly and enthusiastic service that you don’t always see. My friend ordered spicy brussels sprouts and pot stickers which she shared with me – yum! Brussels sprouts never tasted so good. I had the shrimp dish with Cuban bread. The plump shrimp were delicately flavored with garlic and delicious. Their cuisine is defined as New American, a broad term that in this restaurant stresses locally sourced fresh ingredients cooked with a skillful hand. The bright interior of this surprisingly spacious establishment is welcoming with a minimal color scheme (white with small black accents) and a well-appointed seating/table layout. Located on the east side of Biscayne Boulevard and 86th, the exterior features bright red awnings and red floral murals. PINCH Kitchen offers ample parking in its nearby lot. A return visit is in order!More

I admit I drove by this spot countless times with the promise to try it soon. Waiting was a Big mistake! The food was excellent! Intimate yet fun dining experience. Thoughtful chefs and the menu is bright and fresh! I had the mussel and branzino...special. I couldn’t be more happy! My guys had the beer and burger specials. They were both thrilled. My husband has the south of border burger and my son tried and love the impossible (vegan) burger my son is definitely a carnivore but loved it! Btw I went on Mother’s Day. A last minute reservation made me feel special and when the provided a gift of $20 card for my next visit it was the icing on the cake. Lovely spot great vibe and smart cuisine!More

I must have passed this restaurant a dozen times and never thought to consider it since it sits independently on a small lot and actually its not the most luring. But they say, “Never judge a book by its cover.” The exterior is a bit...rough and the ample parking lot is somewhat raw, but the restaurant was recommended and I am going to ignore the aesthetics. The small interior seems to take advantage of the space and did accommodate quite a few diners. The interior is rustic boho with a jab of miami pizazz. Eclectic tables and chairs fill up the space comfortably with its open wood beam ceiling and dim lit industrial lighting. We were promptly attended to and the waiter placed several paper menus on the table and a plain clear glass bottle filled with tap water along side the rolled cloth napkins. He filled each small glass with room temperature water, so I had to ask for ice and lemon. Currently they only offer wine and beer but I was told they will be serving a full bar soon, so I order a stout beer from the separate beverage menu. The food menu contained a nice array of attractive offerings and since it was our first time we ordered enough variety of items so we could all share and the experience. The first taste that arrived was the beet salad surrounded by a mixture of thick chunky yogurt and spices. It was very flavorful and would definitely order it again but I would tell them to cut down on the amount of yogurt they place on the plate so it doesn’t overwhelm the beets. Following we had the Pinch Dumplings filled pork, savoy cabbage and a very salty ponzu sauce. I tried one without the ponzu sauce which is basically soy sauce and I was able to savor this amazing tasty dumpling. A large bowl of muscles were placed in the center of the table. Two long slivers of artisan focaccia bread covered the top of the bowl. The pieces were so big I could hardly see the muscles that were deliciously drenched in shallots, thyme, white wine & butter. The muscles were there and plenty to share. This dish was out of this world but I wish I could have had it all to myself so I could dredge all the crusty bread into the addicting liquid broth. They served us the ceviche corvina, shrimp, choclo, aji limo with a side of crispy yucca chips and last but not least the Spicy Brussel Sprouts with chili flakes. I enjoyed the ceviche which for the most part is the same flavoring one would expect anywhere in Miami. The Brussel sprouts were cooked to perfection as they should be but they definitely were not spicy which would have given it a thumbs up for giving it a different flavor kick. The waiter was attentive and knew the specific details of the menu overall. After clearing up our last few dishes, he came back to the table with a dessert menu. Since no body liked the bread pudding Home-made Baba aux Rhum in a buttery dark rum sauce, thyme gelato we opted to share the gluten free Chocolate cake with a Mexican spiced ice cream. The cake was a bit dry but the the ice cream was out of this world. The atmosphere could use a decorators lift me up and please take down the amateur artwork scattered around the perimeter walls for sale. It has a lot of potential interior opportunities that would tie in the fantastic menu to a more cohesive interior modern standard. Overall Pinch Kitchen offers a superb menu of a hip, eclectic assortment of must try items. Next time we will try a few of their ‘big bites’ offerings. You must make it a point to try Pinch and experience this young vibe off beat food and drink establishment. This will be your next must go to, but when you first pull up remember, “Don’t judge a book by its cover.”More
