Post-Quar Fine Dining in Miami: Fiola and Bourbon Steak

Mask

Sanitizer

Heels

Huh? What are those pointy things glaring back at me? That’s SO February 2020! No more chancletas? Do I still know how to walk in those? It turns out I do, and I wore heels twice this weekend to visit two of my favorite newly-reopened restaurants. How did the experience compare to pre-quarantine fine dining? What safety measures did each restaurant take? Did I feel safe?

Standing O For Bourbon Steak Miami

I don’t write in detail about all of my tried-and-true dining spots, as often as I’d like. I usually dedicate my posts to newer restaurants, travel itineraries, or listicles. Not today. Today I want to talk about one of my favorite local restaurants: Bourbon Steak Miami.  Eight years ago while shopping at Aventura Mall, I noticed […]

Top 30 Bites: Miami 2019

Scroll at your own risk. Serious Miami foodporn ahead.

How to even begin to choose only 30 bites from the many dishes I had throughout the year? I love that it wasn’t easy, and that each photo brought back memories of each one. This means Miami continued making this exercise tough on me by once again upping the game. I researched, chose, changed my mind, chose again, and finally committed to a solid 30.

Top 100 Bites: Miami 2020

I chose to expand my annual Top 30 Bites list to 100. Do I even have that many memorable bites to feature? Turns out, I do! I tried my hardest to support as many restaurants as I could these last nine months. I love that it wasn’t easy, and that each photo brought back memories of each visit. You might notice that I experienced some of the highlighted bites as takeout…#because2020. Despite the bumpy road, Miami continued making this exercise tough on me by once again providing the best eats, EVEN in 2020. After much debate over which bites impacted me the most, I have finally committed to a solid 100.

Top 30 Bites: Miami 2017

The ones I couldn’t stop talking about. The ones that haunted me and, yes, also made me tear up. Perhaps you saw them posted on the blog, or on my social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest) at some point this year. I basically ‘Oh Em Geed’ my way through the photo archives, as I […]

Top 30 Bites: Miami 2018

Warning, scroll at your own risk: serious Miami foodporn ahead. How did I choose just 30 bites to fit into one general category? I didn’t think I could do it, to be honest. I considered revising the list to 31, 32, or 33 items and changed my mind a zillion times. Finally, I figured it […]
