Tacology

The popularity of tacos in the US is truly a phenomenon. I’d go so far as to say they have taken the place alongside burgers and pizza as America’s favorite comfort foods, elbowing out fried chicken in the top three spots. Most taco places though are not places you want to linger – they are pretty basic in the décor and “experience” departments. Not so with new entry Tacology in Brickell City Center Centre, close to the soon to open Cinemax. We went there on a Wednesday night and the 205 seat restaurant was packed, and diners were loving it. Think modern street market with colorful painted plank tables and floors and high ceilings with self-contained sections for tacos, ceviche, desserts and a bar. It’s well worth a visit — delicious food, buzzy, and fun.

Quality Meats Miami: a Relook

Quality Meats Miami is one of my preferred places for a special occasion. As you know, when the top chef changes, it could be a bad thing or a good thing, even when a restaurant is part of a leading management group which tends to have more quality control than independents. So when I got word about a new Executive Chef Daniel Ganem on the scene, off I went to the Miami Beach steakhouse to check it out. For Ganem, this new position represents a return to his Miami roots where he has worked at Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink, BLT Steak, Bourbon Steak and Aqua.
