On Giralda, tonight we brought the dog and sat outside at Mesa Mar. Bug city. I don’t recommend the outdoor seating at this time of year but I loved this place. It has everything it takes to be a new favorite.
Great food, including a magnificent Chocolate Mousse. we ate off the Miami Spice Menu. Sharing all good things. A grilled fish, what presentation. A small Filet Mignon with potatoes. Fresh delicious veggies. The appetizer sushi and fish croquettes. And two of those wonder Mousse Desserts.
With a chef owner on site it was ll spectacular.
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!!!!
It isn’t every day that you sponsor a young Chinese woman who is working on a class project and decides to organize a Dim Sum Lunch. Lillian arranged it and we enjoyed it. There was enough food for a small army. We met some lovely people and had some laughs. We learned the proper way to eat soup dumpling (bite off the top, suck out the soup, add sauce if you like, chew) and the history of the six dumplings we tried. All very educational and delicious. 100 Mott Street. She says they are the most authentic.

Lets talk breakfast. And lets not talk about going anywhere else. Corn Bread to die for (I still smother it in butter and yesterday discovered the pouring on of the honey) A thick ham steak,
Off the Palmetto at Flagler you will find tucked in a shopping venter what my Korean Niece and my daughter think is the best Korean food around.
You can cook on your own BBQ grill, order the fun soda with the marble in the top, get good sushi.
Hands Down my favorite, even though they don’t have a dessert I love. For the first two years I came here I got the Papparadeli Short Ribs. I had tasted it and knew nothing could compare. Then one night I tried a piece of fish with risotto, then I tried the short rib, then another piece of fish. Now I don’t know what to order except of course the Duck Salad to start, unless I order the Ceasar, with a few anchovies. Beer and Wine only.
Coconut grove for lunch. Love this place.
The food is good but the atmosphere is why i go. Sometimes I just want to eat in the garden and this is one of the few places in Miami where one can do that. The bonus being the food is good and you take a walk through the Grove afterwards. It can feel like wind tunnel outside and they are pretty strict about not serving dinner items at lunch.

OMG!!! Was this worth the drive. I don’t know where else to get Greek food and I can’t imagine anything would be more mouth waveringly delicious.
