Fabulous Friday: Dessert Room

Bern’s Steak House in Tampa is nationally reknowned for its prime steaks. In fact, it has become a site for a foodie pilgrimage over the years, almost a reason in itself for a trip to Tampa. And yes, the steaks are top notch and it’s an experience. But, what is less known is Bern’s Steak House Dessert Room which warrants Fabulous Friday status. We’re talking a 45 page dessert menu for starters. That’s just the beginning of the story.

Miami Spice Pick: La Moderna Italian

Here’s a great pick for a Miami Spice Italian restaurant that Vegans and vegetarians will love, along with their fellow diners who like traditional (non-Vegan)  Italian cuisine. La Moderna takes the Italian classics like parmigiana, carpaccio, cannelloni and makes them Vegan with great success (gluten free as well) and has crowd pleasers too,  classic non-Vegan dishes. Then there are the generous “add ons” for Spice, and the super charming Italian manager Ugo.

A Top Choice for Miami Spice

I’ve probably been to the Lobster Bar Sea Grille a half a dozen times and it’s always a top of the line dining experience by any measure. Plus, during Miami Spice Lobster Bar Sea Grille offers exceptional value with whole grilled fish, lobster and beef tenderloins on the special menu. These items alone are worth more than the entire cost of the Spice menu, considering what you pay for these dishes in other fine restaurants. Then there’s the professional and friendly service and ambiance that evokes the Oyster Bar in New York City’s Grand Central Station with its white subway tiles, arched ceilings, mahogany walls and art deco inspired chandeliers.

Amare Miami, a New Fave

I’m in love with Amare restaurant, a new Italian entrant South of Fifth. It was several years in the making, its owners wanting to get it just right, as in a labor of love. But as we know, especially in Miami it takes more than passion – it takes serious experience and talent.  The restaurant is a collaboration between restaurateur Gino Iovino, owner of award-winning restaurant Girasole in Atlantic City, along with Franco Ricatti and Chef Cosimo Cassano of Bacco Osteria, the Michelin-starred concept in Puglia, Italy. Cassano oversees the kitchen. Their specialty is Southern Italian cuisine with a refined and elegant touch . Plus, it is offering Miami Spice for lunch and dinner and includes a number of the top dishes I like.
