Finger lickin’ goodness at Bird & Bone

When the name Chef Richard Hales becomes associated with a restaurant it’s a pretty sure bet the food will be extraordinary. Already familiar with his Sakaya Kitchen and Black Brick Chinese, Bird & Bone was the only one I hadn’t tried.

Just like he immersed himself in Asian cooking methods for his other two restaurants, Hales traveled through the southern United States when… Continue reading

Panarea is a taste of authentic Mediterranean

Panarea Mediterranean Sea Grill is the third restaurant I’ve tried at the NE 110 St. and Biscayne Blvd. location in North Miami. I loved the other two and was sorry to see them go but the quaint, intimate space is a bit tough to get to.

Knowing how to navigate getting there to make the journey easier, I was excited to try the… Continue reading

Greek gem hidden in the nooks of Downtown Miami

Blue and white are almost always the colors associated with a Greek restaurant, as an homage to the landscape of white buildings that dot the Greek seaside. However, at Meraki Greek Bistro, those colors are elevated to a whole new type of elegance.

Discovering this inviting restaurant in Downtown Miami is half the fun, given that it’s a bit hidden and once you… Continue reading

Buon appetito at Angelo Elia in CityPlace Doral

Chef Angelo Elia already has an impressive restaurant empire throughout Broward County and now he’s expanded it to CityPlace Doral with the more casual Angelo Elia Pizza Bar Tapas.

The atmosphere may be casual but the menu is anything but. That was evident at an intimate media dinner where a specialty cocktail was offered to kick off the meal, followed by tapas, pizzas… Continue reading

Zucca brings Italian flair inside boutique hotel

I was quite surprised when I attended a media tasting at Zucca and realized as I arrived that it was inside the boutique Hotel St. Michel, an iconic fixture in Downtown Coral Gables.

Curious to sample the Italian fare inside this French-themed hotel, the restaurant’s contemporary look was quite inviting. We settled around the bar for what would be a barrage of family-style… Continue reading

Graziano’s still one of Gables’ best eateries

They’re not just in the Gables though, they actually have four restaurants in Miami because the Argentinian fare at Graziano’s is just that good. So they’re also serving it up on Brickell, in Hialeah and on Bird Road. This family-run business takes the preparation and presentation of their food seriously, probably a secret to their longevity in Miami’s very competitive restaurant industry.

At… Continue reading

Authentic Mexican eats in a colorful setting at Tacology

I’d never been to Brickell CityCentre but found myself going there for the first time recently for a tasting at the Mexican eatery Tacology. Located on the fourth floor of the Brickell semi-open-air shopping and dining complex (it’s tough to call this place a mall) it was time to try so much more than just tacos.

Walking into this place you’re greeted by… Continue reading

Photography without a miss!

Guest post by Leanne Ferguson

Have you ever heard horror stories of people who have trusted in a photographer to capture their special event, like a wedding, and either they don’t show up, pictures were horrible or they just don’t deliver the images…ever?? It’s horrible, but this happens way more than you’d think.

New App by Galaxy Photoz coming June 2017 is changing… Continue reading

Superfine! Art Fair a great addition to Art Basel madness

Every year I look forward to December. No, not because it’s my birthday and sure for our great weather but more than anything for Art Basel. But each year it seems as if there are just more and more events and every event planner and club promoter is trying to glom on to the action.

That makes it difficult to create a plan… Continue reading
