On Giralda, tonight we brought the dog and sat outside at Mesa Mar.  Bug city.  I don’t recommend the outdoor seating at this time of year but I loved this place.  It has everything it takes to be a new favorite. Great food, including a magnificent Chocolate Mousse.  we ate off the Miami Spice Menu. […]


AROMAS DEL PERU, how have we waited so long to try you. Pisco Sours, Fried corn with green sauce, a fish fry, and the most delectable piece of Corvina – cooked and spiced to perfection. Paper napkins would be my only hesitation… but those of you who know me know I have developed the habit […]


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 […]

Ms. Cheezeous

I love my mom and we loved the backyard at Ms. Cheesious (near the 79th Street Causeway). They have opened a gables location.. I haven’t been.. but when I go, I’m going to save room for the s’mores dessert.


One of the most well balanced Ceasar Salads I have ever had. And here is the remnants of the lamb sandwich . At the new SLS Brickell. We enjoyed a really relaxing lunch. It was one of those menus where you really had no idea what you were ordering but the waitress explained each dish […]

Le Provincal

  and last week I treated myself to take out.  So wonderful.  Perfectly prepared fish, delicious salad, everything is always good here.  Located on miracle mile practically next door to the theatre, Le Provencal has been on miracle mile forever serving up fabulous french food.

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 […]

Greek Islands Taverna

OMG!!!  Was this worth the drive.  I don’t know where else to get Greek food and I can’t imagine anything would be more mouth waveringly delicious. 3300 N Ocean Blvd  Ft. Lauderdale 33308

Bocas House

We have discovered Doral and are loving it.  This past Wednesday we ate at this family friendly plain old restaurant.  What a joy.  No style, no theme, just good food and a great looking menu. Oh yeah, and cloth napkins and an amazing dessert.  Unfortunately the salt was too thick to shake from their shakers […]

Jack’s home cooking

This little house with its front porch on 2nd Ave caught our eye as we were heading to Wynwood to seek out dinner this past Monday night.  And we are so glad it did.  We sat at an adequately sized table for two with the dog at our feet. I ordered the Short Rib and […]
