Dashi, Japanese Cuisine At Its Best

Dashi Miami, the new 80 seat Japanese restaurant that opened as part of the River Yacht Club, showed up on my radar screen through its stunning food images on Instagram. The reality lived up to my expectations as I discovered on a recent visit to this culinary temple of Executive Chef Shuji Hiyakawa a protégé of Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto (and for my taste, a protégé that has possibly surpassed his mentor).

Staycation Miami

With spring here it’s time when we locals start to go swimming in the ocean, enjoy less traffic in Miami Beach, and fewer crowds in restaurants. It’s also the time hotel rates drop. So, thought we, why not go on a “staycation” in Miami Beach for the weekend. We’d do things like spend the afternoon at the beach, go bike riding on the promenade, check out a new deli, go to a new restaurant and entertainment venue and take in a movie. Sounds like fun? It was. And, we should say, we wanted to stay at a prime South Beach location (23rd and Collins) but not pay prime hotel prices. We didn’t care about the “see and be seen” place to be. Our destination, the Gates South Beach.

Fabulous Friday – $25K Taco

A $25,000 USD taco? Yes, you read right. It’s yours at the uber luxe Grand Velas Los Cabos in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. I’m proud to say that the idea for the world’s most expensive taco was that of yours truly (my public relations firm). The brilliant execution is owed to the resort’s Executive Chef Juan Licerio Alcala. So what’s in this taco, what’s a fitting rare tequila to go with it, and has anyone bought it?
