MESA MAR

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.

A NEW FAVORITE

AROMAS DEL PERU, how have we waited so long to try you.

Pisco Sours, Fried corn with green sauce, a fish fry, and the most delectable piece of Corvina – cooked and spiced to perfection.

Paper napkins would be my only hesitation… but those of you who know me know I have developed the habit of carrying my own cloth napkin with me.

We went to the one near Red Road on 8th Street.  Now, as you may know we do not repeat a place on Wednesday nights, however,  we think we might try all four locations.. that’s not cheating, is it?  And, we actually were here on a Saturday…

Caffe Vialetto

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. 

OBBA

Sushi in Coral Gables.

We stopped in at OBBA for lunch.  I was with family who had been there before and liked it.  We ordered too much and enjoyed every bite.  the presentation was exquisite and the experience delightful.

I was especially taken by the phone charger they provided at the table.  i never knew such a thing existed.
