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!!!!

The Peacock Garden Cafe

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.

Bocas House

We have discovered Doral and are loving it.  This past Wednesday we ate at this family friendly plain old restaurant.  What a joy.  No style, no theme, just good food and a great looking menu.

Oh yeah, and cloth napkins and an amazing dessert.  Unfortunately the salt was too thick to shake from their shakers but they gladly brought me a small bowl.

We shared a 24 oz. Porterhouse which was accompanied by yuca fries ( i would get the regular fries next time) .  It came with a sharing size salad with a delicious citrus dressing.  The steak was cooked as we ordered it, medium rare, and really tasty.  As good as any steak ouse but without the pretentiousness.  We also had a mac and cheese which was ordinary and extraordinary and worth ordering.

Then onto dessert… A mug of cookies and cream milkshake , topped with a white chocolate brownie covered with vanilla ice cram.. and the greatest largest start ever.

No need to order dinner, just get the dessert!
