Each month, HuffPost Miami joins our friends at Tasting Table to highlight our five favorite finds from Miami’s exciting culinary scene. After eating around the area, here’s what caught Tasting Table Miami editor Trina Sargalski’s eye in July:

Honey, You Must Try This
Garden of Ian South Florida raw honey is popping up on menus all over town. Ian Wogan's wildflower honey lacquers the empanadillas de bacalao, wontons filled with salty codfish cream, at The Bazaar by José Andrés. Also try the honey at Tuyo: on braised turnips with butter and served with pork roulade, or unadulterated, with the cheese plate.

Plant Yourself at the Bar
The cocktails at Bloom Wynwood rely heavily on the jars of herbs, fruits and vegetables that bookend the bar. Miami's twin loves of juicing and cocktails intersect here at Bloom. We'll drink to that.

Where's There's Smoke
Georgia's Union has much to offer in its Southern-inspired menu, from lemony Cornish game hen to braised white cabbage (taste it before you knock it) to some lovely cocktails. However, a must-try is the smoky Eggs Went Down to Georgia appetizer. These are not your grandma's deviled eggs (although hers are quite nice too).
