With friends and readers in Fort Lauderdale, and the fact that I often go to the NSU Museum (the Frank Stella show is well worth a visit) and sometimes to the Broward Performing Arts Center, I’m always on the lookout for really good restaurants.  When told about two restaurants in one, my interest was piqued, especially since one is Italian and the other Asian fusion. Walk in the front door to the hostess stand and to the right, find Valentino Fort Lauderdale, and to the left, One Door East. These are places I’ll return many times. Since you have to see the dishes in their glory, I’ve made this into a two part series. Day one is Valentino. Read Full Post & Comments »

OMG Baked Goods

Chocolate chunk cookies

 

Give me just out of the fryer churros, a Viennese chocolate Sacher torte mit schlag ( with whipped cream), pistachio gelato, and lemon tarte tatin anytime. But it’s American desserts I crave the most. We’re talking donuts, cupcakes, traditional layer cakes, ice cream sundaes and more. So was I ever happy to learn about two artisanal Miami bakers who specialize in delectable, decadent, devastating (because you want more than one) all American baked goods. News flash! Suzanne of Eden Bar Bakery will be sharing her luscious bars at my reader event on the 11th! Read Full Post & Comments »

Skorpios

Grilled whole octopus

 

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. Read Full Post & Comments »

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. Read Full Post & Comments »
