Almost “Sold Out’; Dinner Pick

 

Many thanks for your enthusiastic response to our upcoming reader event April 11!  In fact, only 5 places are left, so if you’re thinking of coming, let me know ASAP. You can email me or write a comment below. We have a great spot for a bite afterwards — Palat in Buena Vista. The Mediterranean food is delicious, it’s reasonably priced, and “buzzy”. See below for an earlier writeup.

Skorpios

The newest entry into the scene of Greek restaurants Miami, and a welcome one at that, is Skorpios, named after the private island owned by the late Greek shipping billionaire Aristotle Onassis. Skorpios is like a Greek taverna – casual, friendly, made for socializing and sharing dishes. The floors and walls are decorated with terracotta and mosaic tiles, and the tables are rough hewn wood. Centerpiece of the décor is a dramatic 13 foot Hammerhead shark mounted on the wall. There’s outdoor seating as well.

Call Me Gaby, a New Fave

Surprisingly, Miami doesn’t have many restaurants that are casual and chic with a European sensibility— and with outdoor dining. Think the French or Italian Riviera. And, even better, one where the noise level is moderate, so one can carry on a real conversation. To the rescue, stylish French couple Anthony and Kathy who opened their trophy restaurant, Call Me Gaby at 22 Washington Avenue (opposite Joe’s Stone Crab)T.305-531-4800.

The New Barton G.

Barton G has always been a star on his stage of creating highly creative, bold, almost theatrical eating in what has always been a fun South Beach experience. We’re not talking European style molecular gastronomy. This is American in its themes and drama. I hadn’t been back there for close to ten years, just because I’m always pulled to try the new places. But an invitation to try the new menu came in conjunction with the South Beach Wine and Food Festival, so off I went, a cold and all.My curiosity was especially piqued because how, I asked myself, with all of the competition in dining experiences, could Barton G The Restaurant still WOW diners?
