What’s New in Little Havana

Velvet Creme Donuts


By Josie Gulliksen and Yours Truly


The revival of the Little Havana neighborhood has been drawing plenty of attention lately, thanks to a variety of businesses that kicked it off a year or two ago, and the others that have followed suit recently. You can get your sweet fix, enjoy a craft beer, dine al fresco in a garden setting or dance the night away in front of a pineapple shaped stage. Most of the spots you need to visit are the result of a love and passion that Miami’s Cuban-American community has to bring the neighborhood an injection of new life.Here are some of the new spots and other classic favorites. Any others you’d recommend? Read Full Post & Comments »

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. Read Full Post & Comments »

The Deck, a New Fave


When I heard the name “The Deck Miami” and knew it was waterside, I was expecting the kind of very casual place you go to eat (rather than dine) in Key Biscayne or the Keys, a place that’s all about the view period. But then again, I heard the chef was Alfredo Alvarez, ex of Seasalt n Pepper (now Seaspice), then Palmeiras, so decided it definitely deserved a visit. It turned out I was right about the food but wrong about the ambiance. The Deck at Island Gardens has to be one of the most attractive (in a European way), stylish and casually elegant restaurants in Miami. And then there’s the spectacular view of the Miami skyline. I liked it so much, I immediately booked a return visit for when a New York friend is coming to town. Read Full Post & Comments »
