OMG. OMG. OMG.
And it only gets better.
When we pulled up I thought, looking at the neighborhood, that even I might not want to get out of the car. But this was wonderful. Perfect in every way. Cloth napkins, salt on the table, a huge wheel of Parmesian cheese with honey and bread – help yourself-.
Then desserts on display. Eclectic.. and I think thats the first time I ever used that word.
This is THE PLACE to try. Open just a month they have it all pulled together. Magnificent menu. We had a Ceasar salad – more than enough for two. Coq au vain, a burger, chocolate cake, a beer and an unusual cosmopolitan. I brought a brownie home!!!!
I love Wednesday nights. I never know what might happen or where we might end up. Tonight we were stuck up in Hialeah and Todd had selected this nearby place which he passes regularly, a little Spanish place that we really enjoyed. The food was superb. We both had fish and I had a garlic soup… oh I do love that garlic. And the dessert, Catalona, was mmmm mmmm good. The staff was friendly and helpful and there was salt on the table, sadly no cloth napkins but on their own the servers did continue bringing us paper napkins.
if this place was in the neighborhood I would return often
I am loving the Madruga Bakery. The picture above is not the monkey bread. It is a small bun of cinnamony knots of sweetness that was devoured before I even thought to take a photo. But the bakery is lovely, conveniently located in South Miami behind the publix. They have a limited lunch menu.. its clean, its open, it smells good.
I love my mom and we loved the backyard at Ms. Cheesious (near the 79th Street Causeway). They have opened a gables location.. I haven’t been.. but when I go, I’m going to save room for the s’mores dessert.
I have loved La Boulangerie since I first tried it on the curve of Coral Way a few years ago. But what a long drive for Paparadelle Funghi. So when a restaurant of the same name advertised its opening in Pinecrest, at the old Gardners on 124th Street my heart beat faster.. could it be the same place? YES, with the same menu. Apparently this is location 4. There is one on the key, and also in Aventura. Oh happy day!
I do love BBQ. And Dickey’s did not disappoint. The pork and brisket may have been too moist if that’s possible. All three sauces- sweet, hot, regular- were good, really good. As was the brownie I had for dessert.
“What could they do better?” I asked myself. Not much.. maybe clear the table for me as this is a self serve self clear joint.
