OMG.   OMG.    OMG. And it only gets better. When we pulled up I thought, looking at the neighborhood, that even I might not want to get out of the car.  But this was wonderful.  Perfect in every way.  Cloth napkins, salt on the table, a huge wheel of Parmesian cheese with honey and bread […]

The Peacock Garden Cafe

Coconut grove for lunch.  Love this place. The food is good but the atmosphere is why i go.  Sometimes I just want to eat in the garden and this is one of the few places in Miami where one can do that.  The bonus being the food is good and you take a walk through […]

Al Carbon

The I first went to Al Carbon it was the best burger around.  Its a STUFFED Burger… with almost anything you might want.  There wasn’t much competition back then, few craft places or pub style burger joints.  Its still really really good, as are the ribs, and deserts.  If you are down Coral Way and […]

Station 5

South Miami..What a burger.  It has everything on it including the kitchen sink.  Get a finger bowl as you are going to be a mess.  I loved it.

Latin House

Out Sunset at about 97th.  And not really Latin.  This place turns out a great burger and has unique and delicious gastro pub style food.

The Local

I was first to the Local with a group of six.. the perfect size group to eat there.  great sharing plates arrived one after the other and each was tasty.  You can also get a good burger, great Fries and i like the chicken dumpling soup.  On Giralda in the Gables.  Be cautioned- they have lunch […]

Wagons West

Can you say Disco Fries?  Grilled Swiss Cheese with Bacon on Whole Wheat with BBQ sauce on the side.  If you can, this is the place to say it.  Also known for its milk shakes, patty melts and other food from the griddle.   We say it’s so good because the grease on the griddle […]

Burger Bob’s

If you just want to grab the quickest easiest burger with not  single frill you might try burger Bobs on the granada golf course.

Tap 79

On the 79th Street Causeway.  And worth it. An interesting menu, a place that is filled with regulars, where you can bring the dog.
