NaiYaRa: Thai + Vibe

Burmese wraps


Chef Bee as Chef Piyarat Arreeratn is known has almost a cult following. So when he opened his newest outpost, NaiYaRa, on South Beach at 1854 Bay Road (T.786=275-6005), it was a hit from day one. I never went to his North Miami Beach restaurant, but had heard about it from colleagues who loved his Thai street food fare. Yes, the food is very good and yes, it’s in the “hot” Sunset Harbour neighborhood so it’s also about a party vibe. Read Full Post & Comments »

Ice Bar Miami


The idea of checking out — notice I didn’t say checking in– the Hotel de Glace (ice hotel)  in Quebec  always had appeal, but I’ve never made it. Happily, now I was able to don my faux fur coat, Ugg boots and mitten loaners and experience the Ice Bar Miami, part of what’s called the new Drinkhouse Fire Lounge & Ice Bar, 1672 Collins Avenue T. (305) 534-2423. And what an experience it is. Read Full Post & Comments »

Juniper on the Water

The outdoor deck for romantic dining waterside


Hallandale, Mr. W reminded me, used to be famous as the place gangsters retired (the ones who beat the odds) and a sleepy town. I  got a news release about a new restaurant there, Juniper on the Water, that has had very good consumer reviews (always do research in advance), a Turkish chef and waterfront dining. Intriguing. So off I went. Read Full Post & Comments »

Welcome to the Vroom Vroom Room


By Steve Deitsch

Miami is known for its flashy style, and there is nothing flashier than having dinner in front of a rare Lamborghini or vintage Rolls Royce, with music pumping in from the DJ, housed in a Ford tractor-trailer. If this gets you excited, the launch of Miami Supercar Rooms bar and restaurant , the nation’s first auto art gallery and gourmet dining experience, which opened recently in Wynwood, is for you.

Founded by Elo (like Cher, with just one name), a British mogul who founded the London Motor Museum, he is bringing a bit of South Beach-style nightlife and glamour to the already hip Wynwood scene.

Within the Auto Art Gallery, you will be able to experience a never-before-seen collection of extremely rare models such as the 1955 SL 300 Mercedes Gullwing; 1929 Rolls Royce Bootch; 1958 450 S Maserati vintage racing car; 1961 196 SP Ferrari vintage racing car and the 2007 Shelby Supercar Ultimate Aero TT: heralded as the fastest production car in the world.
