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!!!!

Tabernia de Ignacio

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.

Another Wednesday

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.

Why I am not a regular here I don’t know.  I have eaten here twice, its in the neighborhood, the price is right, the place is comfortable and the food really is very good.

A step up Italian eatery with a varied menu…the chicken viola was unique, delicious and there was a big enough portion that I brought enough home for a midnight snack.

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.
