New Year and you’re not feeling flush, with money that is. Here’s a list of my favorite cheap eats Miami. As I write in “About my blog”, quality doesn’t have to be pricey. These places have very good food, and you can eat lunch and/or dinner for around $20 a person exclusive of alcohol. None is a national restaurant chain, and all have seats to eat in. Love to hear your suggestions, too, for your favorite spots.

Best Bet: A Special Day

Combine serious people watching as in a “blue carpet” , food by David Grutman of Komodo, and Swan and Bar Bevy fame, entertainment by Snoop Dogg and Mark Ronson, and thoroughbred racing for the richest prize in North America, and you know it’s a special day in Miami. It’s the Pegasus World Cup Championship Series 2019 to be held January 26. If there was a doubt that this wasn’t an uber event, that’s dispelled when you know races as well as the celebrities and live entertainment will be aired on NBC.

French Pastry Fit for a King + New Bistro

If you’ve never had the French pastry Galette des Rois, you’re in for a sublime treat. The galette des rois, celebrating Epiphany, the day the Three Kings (les rois) visited the infant Jesus, is baked throughout January in France. And it’s available by special order this month only in Miami from Semilla French Bistro and Wine Bar. Semilla’s Executive Chef and Owner Frederic Joulin is not only a master in French cuisine, but also an applauded pastry chef. Born in Paris, his extensive pedigree includes helming the kitchen for French President Jacques Chirac and the three-Michelin-star Guy Savoy. He’s offering the Galette to launch the reimagining of his South Beach restaurant into a French Bistro and Wine Bar along with a market for takeout, scheduled for January 28.

Unisex Fashion Bracelets

A popular item in mens fashion are bracelets. I do like bracelets on men, especially when they wear multiple ones. Most of the ones I see are the same old, same old, but not these that recently caught my attention for their attractive design and variety of styles and materials. Plus, they happen to have wellness properties and are well made, not surprising since they come from Germany. Never fear you women readers, Energetix has jewelry for you too (and some models are unisex). Designs as well for teens, children and even pets.They’re now available here in the USA thanks to Miami based Sasha Viguie who just brought the line here.

Best Dinner Value in Town

It’s arguably the best dinner deal in The Magic City. No surprise then that the restaurant was packed on a Monday night in the usually slow tourism period right after New Year. Word is getting out about the incredible six course dinner with wine pairing for $79 per person (plus tax and tip) at Estiatorio by Milos. As is always the case with Milos, everything was top quality and even though the restaurant was crowded, we and our friends felt as if the waiter only had eyes for us. Service was excellent. Plus, there was no din, so conversation was easy. And now why it was so good….

Day Trip from Miami: A Perfect Day

Nothing prepared me for Brightline, the train that travels between Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach. And I’ve been on my share of trains from Singapore and India to Europe and of course the USA. It was an important part of a perfect day trip from Miami (or from Fort Lauderdale) to Palm Beach that included a fascinating new discovery, an exhibit by famed photographer Edward Steichen, gourmet lunch in an elegant outdoor courtyard, a beautiful “winter” day, great friends, and all with comfort, convenience, and totally hassle free.
