Miami Got Lucky, Literally

Ramen with pork belly

 

Move over New York and Los Angeles Asian food snobs. Yes, Miami got lucky with new Asian food marketplace, 1-800-LUCKY. OMG is the food ever delicious. If I closed my eyes I would think I was at a street market in Singapore. Find seven food vendors from Hong Kong and Japan to Miami’s own,  a Karaoke Bar,  and Wynwood’s first convenience store. Eat across Asia with buns, wok classics, peking duck, ramen,  shrimp dumplings  and Taiyaki Japanese ice cream. Read Full Post & Comments »

Cream, Ice Cream Parlor and Cafe

Unicorn Poop Sundae

 

Cream, Ice Cream Parlor and Café  took me back to my childhood. Actually, it’s better than any ice cream hangout I can remember. Besides the scrumptious ice cream, the place is fun, whimsical, comfortable and unlike any other place in Miami. With good reason it has built up a dedicated fan club of all ages – millennials going there on a date, groups of friends and families, and grandparents with their grandchildren. The “look” itself is definitely part of the story, but first let’s talk about the main event – the ice cream. Read Full Post & Comments »

My Favorite Restaurants of 2017

The most frequently asked question I get is what is your favorite restaurant in Miami.  So I decided to answer that question for all of you readers. There’s one caveat. It’s a list of eleven since I have favorites for different reasons – do I want a steakhouse, Asian,  festive/party scene, Italian, French, Mediterranean?  As we all know, the restaurant business is tricky. Especially in Miami, the service and food can change from one day to next with a departing chef, transient wait staff, economics, etc. That being said, if and when you go to these places, hope they’re the best possible dining experience for you too. Enjoy! Read Full Post & Comments »

Forte dei Marmi, A Star

 

Calamari tagliatelle with caviar

 

2017 is going to end on a culinary high note for me discovering top new entrants and — I’m going out on a limb here, the best Italian restaurant in Miami. This was welcome after a dry spell in exceptional dining. Last week you read about Sakura736. Now it’s all about Italian cuisine and Forte dei Marmi Miami. I’ve dined at Forte dei Marmi three times in 60 days and I can’t wait to go back. The space was formerly occupied by Cavalli and prior to that Danny Devito’s place, both of which were short lived. Heading up the kitchen is two star Michelin chef Antonio Mellino and his talented son chef Raffaele which right away speaks to the seriousness of the restaurant venture. But sometimes Michelin star cuisine can be precious or too studied. Not so here. It veers to classic cuisine, but with a creative twist and slow food culture, and  some totally new dishes here in Miami. Read Full Post & Comments »

Sakura736, a Fave

 

Hotate a la parmesan

 

If you read my blogpost on the best dishes of 2017 you saw the Sakura Roll from Sakura736. Actually, three dishes could have made the list. When the word gets out about the restaurant, , it’s my prediction it will be one of the hot spots in town. It’s well located on what is becoming a prime foodie destination with Joe’s Stone Crab, the new Stubborn Seed, Milos, and Red the Steakhouse all within a few blocks of one another and had a sophisticated, attractive crowd the night we went. Sakura736 features Nikkei cuisine, the first in Miami. It’s the convergence of Japanese and Peruvian traditions which emerged thanks to the immigration of Japanese to Peru.
