Anthony’s

I have always gone at someone else suggestion and never been unhappy.  Last time I was here I tried the ribs.  I must say, they give the wings a run for their money.  A neighborhood pizza place.  I could take it or leave it.  

Glass and Vine

2820 McFarlane Coconut Grove This is one of those places with delicious food, nice service, but i dread going because i don’t understand the menu.  The outdoor patio overlooking Peacock Park is perfect for a nice night out.

Miyako

http://miyakoofdadeland.com/contact/ At Dadeland Plaza on South Dixie.  When my daughter came home as an infant I took my sone to dinner every Thursday night for mom/Sam time.  His choice, our time.  And every Thursday night we went t Miyako, sat at the bar, and ordered sushi.  I hadn’t been back in years when a few […]

DiNapoli

I have gone  back and forth on DiNapoli for years.  My first experience was bad, then years later I returned and it was fine.  I have been twice in the past year and taken out twice, all good.  So, for neighborhood Italian its a good choice.  You have to choose it over Papa Piccolo ( http://papapiccolopizzeria.eat24hour.com […]

El Chaman

http://www.elchaman.com Sometimes confused with el chalan ( https://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g34438-d431951-Reviews-El_Chalan_Restaurant-Miami_Florida.html ) because they are both out bird road and both have good food but El Chaman which is out at about 143 ave is fine dining.  Romantic, but not completely intimate you will get not only the best pisco sour intern but delicious high end peruvian food and […]

Swensons

A traditional Ice Cream Parlor imitation.  The sundaes are served in tall glass bowls, the ice cream is great and people love the patty melt too.

Mr. Yum

Mr Yum is one of these little sushi places that seems to have always existed.  Out on 8th street i didn’t like Mr. yum the first few times i was there.  Now, I’m ok with it.  I think  you just need to know how to order and not have high expectations.
