LA BOULANGERIE 

Pinecrest!!!!

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!

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.
