Famed chef Michael Mina and Ayesha Curry are officially bringing the heat to Miami this February with their brand new concept, International Smoke, debuting at the iconic Aventura Mall. The 200-seat restaurant will showcase the pair’s signature barbecue concept that became famous on the West Coast, hailing from San Francisco. What began as a pop-up quickly grew such a cult following that the duo decided to open a permanent dining concept in San Francisco, with an additional second location following in Houston. And now, it’s coming to the East Coast for the first time in no better place than the foodie-centric Aventura Mall.
