Boulud Sud, Daniel Boulud’s Mediterranean-inspired restaurant, encourages summertime socials. Putting an elevated spin on tired taco nights, its weekly Tapas Tuesday (5-8 p.m.) replaces cervezas with rosé and Tex-Mex with chef Clark Bowen’s gourmet bar bites. His diverse menu laps the seaside coast: harissa-spiced lamb meatballs, non-traditional tabbouleh with cauliflower and figs, and a tuna and avocado tartine further lightened for the season with grapefruit. All the Spanish classics (serrano ham, pan con tomate, pata negra- and béchamel-stuffed croquetas) are also available, with live Spanish guitar to complete the fantasy express. For larger appetites, monthly wine and beer dinners continue July 18. Wynwood Brewing Company’s pairings range from its new Laces IPA with Florida pompano and gnocchi, to a Lock On lager and bourbon cocktail with peach sorbet crumble.
