Description: Chef-Owner Alfredo Patino celebrates fresh local market approach with his "Roadside European Cuisine". In a cosmopolitan, industrious setting in Miami’s neighboring art district, bin no. 18 is a popular stop for pre- and post- Art Center shows and gallery walks. With its contemporary interpretation of casual meets chic, the European bistro explores a spectrum of artisan dishes composed with a purpose. Driven to present a true taste of the Riviera urban cuisine, Chef's weekend menus experiment with seasonal flavors to bring out the ones that tantalize us the most. The well-designed beer and wine bins boast a variety of juice that is top-ranked in quality and value. Hanging Chandeliers, concrete slabs over wine barrels serve as communal tables' ideal for sharing the cheese and charcuterie menus. We welcome you to sense a unique culinary art scene.

Found this little gem of a restaurant, and glad we did. The atmosphere was great and you have to try the Cuban Sandwich....awesome. Will stop by again next time we're in Miami....

“Fun dining spot and good food”
Reviewed November 20, 2012 via mobile

We have lived in the neighborhood of this restaurant for over a year and never stopped in. We stopped in for a light dinner, while out for a walk and were pleasantly surprised. The service was very good. The menu was varied, original, and the food was very good as well. The small portions allow you to try many different items on the menu without breaking the bank. Dinner for two including tip, but without drinks, was $42.
This restaurant is walking distance from the arts District and the Opera House. We suggest you stop here for a meal before a night of entertainment. We recommend it

“Nice little bar/restaurant”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

We went to Bin last week as a pre Miami Heat game activity for some drinks and tapas. The place has a nice vibe and the food is very good. They have a pretty good wine list also.

We tried the meat and cheese board that was very nicely priced for the quality and the amount of food on it. We had the clams and chorizo that were very tasty. We also had a few other things that were nice.

I would return here again!

“Disorganized & possessed desserts.”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

I went for Dinner with two friends there for the first time on Saturday, November 3rd. We had an early booking at 7:30pm and the place was packed when we got there with what looked like only two servers on duty. We waited and waited at the entrance for someone to at least acknowledge us, let alone seat us. Finally a server who had walked passed us twice greeted and seated us.
The server that took care of our table was really good very helpful… but WARNING if you are using a Gilt City Coupon or anything like that, they will automatically add a large tip onto the final bill. My two friends were sharing a voucher and I was ordering off the regular menu. Their Gilt city voucher was $35 for two and the tip that was automatically added at the end was $22!! Quite a shock to them.
The food was ok, nothing spectacular – kind of average. I had the Duck pate (good) and chocolate molten cake – store proceeds and bought – not good.
Overall the place has a pretty good atmosphere, I would try it out again, maybe

“Casual gem!”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

Great food, good wine list and casual - but very good - service. The wine list is affordable and filled with an eclectic mix of wines. Great beer list, too! The food was exceptional. We had the 5 option charcuterie plate and chose 3 cheeses and 2 meats all of which were great. Then we had the clams with chorizo (another hit!), the grouper ceviche (yum!) and the scallop special that was tremendous. The dining room was laid out well and tables were comfortable. We had all the above food and 2 bottles of wine - total bill was about $150. Good value!

Don't go expecting a fine dining experience. The location is good, it is an intimate, casual bistro. The ventilation was not that great - the scallop special created a bit of a smoky atmosphere that did not dissipate well.

If you have not been - go! This is a worthwhile visit.
