Goldbelly, Best Eats of USA

 

Goldbelly review, miamicurated
Raoul’s au poivre burger

 

Going out on a limb here, but I had the best burger ever shipped to me from Goldbelly. Good foodie friends, Mr. W who is a serious burger guy, the New Yorker and Esquire magazines agree. Now it’s not one of these over the top burgers where everything is piled high and more is more. It’s a “refined” burger from Raoul’s in New York City. If you don’t know about Goldbelly, you’re seriously missing out on eating some of the best and most famous foods from chefs, small shops and restaurants across the USA. Here’s the scoop about the burger and my Goldbelly review.

The Boys Farmers Market, A SoFL Experience

If you’re a foodie, or just really appreciate fresh fruits and vegetables and enjoy the gourmet market experience, you must put a drive to The Boys Farmers Market on your “to do” list. There’s nothing even close to it in Miami in terms of variety and quality of fruits and vegetables, price point,  as well as having a wide selection of other food items in one place. If you know Fairway Market in New York City, this is similar, but on a smaller, though not small scale. Plus, it’s an experience being there, worth the drive to Delray Beach. So what in particular will you find?

More Workout Fashion: Shashi

And now to complete your workout fashion, head to toe! Who would think it’d make sense to apply the words “performance” and “pizzazz” to grip socks, something I didn’t think I’d get excited about? Well, I was a disbeliever, until I tried Shashi, the best grip socks for sure. For women, they can take your fitness wear outfit up a notch in style and comfort. And for men, the comfort should make you happy. They’re designed for barre, yoga and pilates, but also work for just walking around the house and for golf. And then there’s the credentials – they were just featured in VOGUE magazine.

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.

The Bazaar Project- Not to Be Missed

It’s seldom I go to a store and want to buy just about everything. A notable exception is The Bazaar Project in its expanded new home in Coconut Grove. The owner, sourcer and person of exquisite taste is Yeliz Tetiz, who travels the world discovering contemporary treasures in home décor, men and women’s fashion, and jewelry. It’s best described as a Concept Store. Sharing the space with the retail offerings is an inviting café with tropical flair that opens onto the street. Though just open for two months, it’s already a hot ticket. Expect Yeliz’s stylish touches, even in the café. A coffee is not just a coffee. It’s served on a silver tray with a piece of Turkish delight candy. Order a glass of wine or cocktail and it comes with a dish of nibbles.
