Many restaurants around town are responding to the dine-in restrictions by offering takeout and delivery, either through services like Uber Eats, Grub Hub, Postmates and others, or by using their own employees.

Sample Sale Miami: “Pick Me Up” for the Times

This is the time we all need what I’ll call “pick me ups”, whether they’re about self pampering or care, feeling we’re doing something positive with our time off, small indulgences, or just feeling we’re looking good as we lounge around the house. So when I got the news of a sample sale with serious savings off the luxury brand La Perla’s lounge and sleep wear for men and women, off I went to the Design District. And there, besides great discounts of up to 85% off, I also found bathing suits, bustiers, satin boudoir shoes, lingerie and more. The sale is until this Sunday.

If you would have told me that the wine glass itself can have a major influence on the taste of the wine — fruity, acid, tannins — I would have told you it was fake news. But after trying one red and one white wine each in three different wine glasses, I’m a believer.

High Dive Restaurant, a West Palm Beach Pick

Thanks to the Brightline, I’ve been going to Palm Beach more often. It’s so easy, breezy and civilized. And when there, I’m always on the lookout for exciting new restaurants, especially a seafood restaurant in West Palm Beach,  rather than the “same old, same old”. Happily the new High Dive in West Palm Beach is anything but the “same old”. And even better, it’s a seafood focused restaurant  by award-winning husband and wife team, Chefs Jeremy and Cindy Bearman.It’s well worth putting on your list when you’re in Palm Beach.

The “New” Deck at Island Gardens, A Fave

The Deck at Island Gardens was always one of my favorite places to dine well, enjoy a signature view of Miami’s skyline, and soak in a “buzzy”, glamorous atmosphere. So I was notably disappointed when it closed . It reopened two months ago and I had been dying to go back. It’s hard to believe, but I’d go out on a limb and say the “new” Deck is even better. My Parisian woman friend with very high standards and I were seriously impressed.
