‘Dewey’s the man’

That was D’s reaction to the boneless short rib sloppy joe sandwich prepared by North One Ten chef Dewey LoSasso for the South Beach Wine & Food Festival Wine Spectator’s Best of the Best event Friday night. Topped with sliced filet mignon, lobster marmalade and a little Dewey hot sauce to taste, I must concur […]

The winner is…

Locals won over my heart and belly at last night’s South Beach Food & Wine Amstel Light Burger Bash, where seventeen restaurants, including last year’s winner — New York’s Shake Shack — competed for the people’s choice best burger prize. Boston’s Radius took away the prize this year beating Shake Shack by five votes, but […]

Should I stay or should I go?

It’s not news that the 2008 South Beach Wine & Food Festival kicks off today. How many more articles about it do we need? But many, including me, question whether going to the festival is worth it (particularly at the prices). My first time at the festival was in 2004 when I went to the […]

Celebrate Chinese New Year

A reader emailed me yesterday asking for a roundup of the best places to celebrate Chinese New Year in Miami. I confess: I was at a bit of a loss, but after asking around and doing a little digging, I came up with a few ideas. Chinese New Year, known in China as Spring Festival, […]

January 25th, 2008 organic gelato

I am so close to organic gelato, yet I always managed to escape the temptation of trying it. Every time I visited the neighboring Starbucks I would tell myself: next time, next time. Next time finally came this week. The tiny store reminds me of a young child’s bedroom, complete with hot air balloons […]

Upper East Side Green Market

Right after D and I picked up this week’s CSA box, we headed to the Upper East Side Green Market that started today at Legion Memorial Park on Biscayne and 64th.

My first CSA box

Here it is, our first Redland Organics CSA box. We picked it up today and I immediately got to finding out more about some of its contents and what I may do with them. Since it’s a lot of food (only full shares are available for trial memberships) I figured I’d try to plan ahead […]

Miami food blogs

When I began blogging, I couldn’t find many food blogs in Miami. There existed JeffEats, which is from Broward and seems to no longer exist, and Miami Foodie, which was abandoned. Now, though, now is different. Old-time Miami bloggers give food its fair share of coverage on their blogs, but blogs exclusively about food in […]

Tour the new Coral Gables Whole Foods

Whole Foods in the Gables opens Wednesday, September 26 (yippeee!), but if you make reservations here, you can sign up for a one-hour tour of their store Monday, September 24.

The state of South Florida dining

The topic keeps coming up. Not long ago I posted about a Chowhound discussion on the changes in some South Florida restaurant menus to accommodate taste. The discussion about recent restaurant closings has also been kicking for some time on Chowhound and others. Today’s Herald takes a look at the situation. South Florida fancies itself […]

How Publix killed the Food Network star in me

Yesterday after a lazy afternoon watching The Next Food Network Star marathon, I was inspired to cook and headed to Publix to pick up some ingredients for the chicken tabouleh salad I wanted to make. What a mood killer. As usual on a Sunday, the store was packed but it has never been so unbearable. […]

Are Miami diners ‘dumbing down’ menus?

Interesting discussion going on at Chowhound this week about the changes some Miami restaurants have made to their menus or wine lists to satisfy the Miami diner’s palate and taste. Florida hounds are looking for a phrase for what they call the dumbing down of menus to satisfy the uneducated South Florida diner. Based on […]

Casablanca Fish Market

The last time I went to the Casablanca Fish Market, it was still at its old Watson Island location, from where as many of you know it was evicted for development. That goes to show how long it’s been since I visited the market, but a sudden urge to make ceviche this weekend gave me […]

Birthday bites around Miami

Okay, so I lied. I know I said I’d keep up with Mango&Lime while my family was in town but I was a little too ambitious. In fact, this blog didn�t even enter my mind while they were here. On the upside, I enjoyed every bite in their company – I wasn�t overly concerned with […]

Announcement: Miami Cross Blogination

On Tuesday, September 19, you might stumble upon an unfamiliar sight on this blog. Why? It’s called Miami Cross Blogination, an event dreamed up by Rebecca of Greener Miami, in which 22 Miami bloggers swap blogs for a day.

Food Destinations 2 – Coconut Grove Farmers Market

Miami to visitors is well-known for South Beach, Miami Vice, celebrity sightings, shopping and clubs, but for its food markets? No. Not really. But that’s what made Food Destinations 2 so appealing: it gave me a chance to highlight a part of Miami where I usually wouldn’t take any of my visitors.
