What I tried:
HIT: How can I choose a favorite when a dinner starts with gruyere popovers and ends with a PB&J dessert? OK, here’s the truth; please know that I will always be biased when there’s peanut butter or guava anything on a menu. That’s my disclosure and I’m sticking to it. With that said, of course I have to go with the PB&J truffles. When I saw the plate, I wondered just how much peanut butter the truffles would have; they looked rather chocolate heavy. One bite in, I knew. SO. MUCH. PEANUT BUTTER. Rich and sweetened with strawberry and Concord grape jelly, there was no other way to end the night than with these babies.
MISS: Not enough truffles? I kid. Nothing to say in this category. I liked it all.
The last of the BLT restaurants remaining in South Florida, this location is a bit of an unsung hero. Hidden away inside the Trump National Doral, I think it’s worth the drive. Some of the entrees on the Miami Spice menu weren’t as imaginative or refined as I would have liked (Shrimp Alfredo & Pan Seared Grouper), but they were still flavorful and executed right. After looking through their regular menu while there, I’m now curious to return and try it out. More to come from me on BLT Prime.
