New Top Restaurant in Coral Gables

Just in time for the holidays, there’s an addition to top restaurants in Coral Gables, that has all the right ingredients – quality products, handsome décor, lovely outdoor dining area, and very good service. When we went I saw very good friends dining there who qualify as being picky ex New Yorkers, and this was their fourth visit in a month. I can see why. In fact, two of the dishes rank among my favorites of the year. It’s Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille at the Village of Merrick Park in Coral Gables.

Not Your Usual Art Basel Picks

Rather than the obvious major art fairs, here are my picks for other events and happenings at Art Basel Miami 2019. Check them out: “hot’ new Wynwood store described as a “retail destination and culture creator”, art week workshop and private tours, two of my favorite ‘other’ art fairs,  stylish shopping and art nail popups at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, and new private art museums opening this week. Note the first event is this Sunday!

Restaurant Classic for Celebrations

If you’ve only been to Trulucks Brickell’s almost always packed Happy Hour, you’re only getting part of the experience. And if you haven’t been there at all, put it on your “need to go” list for your next celebration.  I’ve been there for a private event and happy hour before, but last week I finally got around to experiencing a full, proper dinner.

A New Fave, Hutong

Miami needed another top restaurant specializing in Chinese cuisine. And we got it with Hutong which came here via Beijing, Hong Kong, London and most recently New York. The Northern Chinese fare is exciting, different in presentation and taste, and downright delicious. I left craving more. And then there’s the handsome, original decor. It’s definitely one of the best Chinese restaurants in Miami, and vies for the top spot. Today they opening for lunch along with dinner.

The “It” Gala, Year Two

Last year, having had such a great time, I looked forward to the second annual gala, for AWOM, my favorite in town . And better yet, the theme — Kings and Queens of the Jungle — was sure to make a creative bunch even more creative.  Created and designed by millennials, it wasn’t your usual gala. Check out the fashion spotting at this photo gallery.

French Caribbean Lifestyle PopUp

A unique French Caribbean lifestyle pop-up boutique has come to Wynwood, and it’s well worth a visit.But note it’s only here until this Sunday. Find some of the leading and most creative fashion, beauty and cosmetic brands of Martinique and Guadalupe. I ended up buying an eye catching long white dress with a fitted bodice and flaired skirt and matching bandeau bathing suit that could be from Balenciaga or Prada at a fifth of the price. Then there’s handsome resort footwear, a natural cosmetics line, and perfume and scents label. Loved the sunglasses and straw beach bags, too. Have a look:
