C Food Shack at The Lincoln Eatery
C Food Shack is the first U.S. location for the Caribbean seafood concept, with its original location in Nassau, Bahamas. Created by business owner Laron Culmer, who also serves as executive chef, C Food Shack has been cooking up a storm for the Bahamian public since 2013. The restaurant has offerings for those who eat a vegan diet, like the double tacos made with spicy curry chickpeas in a crispy pita with pickled red cabbage and cucumber chutney. They can accommodate other dietary needs and preferences with their Build-Your-Own C Food Burger.
Some other dishes to look out for include their jalapeño cheddar conch poppers served with a spicy citrus aioli, plus entrees like their Captain Bahamas surf & turf burger and their C Food signature 3-cheese mac and cheese made with your choice of lobster tail, jumbo shrimp, blackened mahi, or mahi crab.
Simply Good Pizza at The Lincoln Eatery
The Lincoln Eatery, Miami Beach’s first modern food hall, has recently opened Simply Good Pizza, a new pizza bar focused on creating a sense of community in Miami Beach by sourcing fresh ingredients from local farmers and purveyors while giving back to those in need. Helmed by Richard Fuentes and Max Pierre, hospitality veterans who have worked within Miami’s culinary field extensively, Simply Good Pizza aims to promote inclusivity and support local purveyors and businesses in South Florida.
Pierre and Fuentes created Simply Good Pizza with the intention of starting a social conversation about advocacy, while also serving a diverse array of flavorful pies. When you stop in, make sure to donate a pie for $10, or purchase a gift card for someone in need.
