I hope home fries don’t sue me for this… hash browns at Jimmy’s Eastside Diner (Upper Eastside, Restaurant)

I’ve been writing a lot of blog posts recently to catch up on old posts and the end is in sight! The backed up posts were both Miami posts and out-of-town travel posts. I greatly enjoy breakfast food, so it makes sense I had a couple breakfast/brunch experiences on my recent trips. If there were hash […]

An unfortunately slow lunch in a hip, “retro” diner- Naked Lunch (Restaurants, Health District)

Ever since last spring I had been wanting to check out Naked Lunch in the UM Life and Science Building near Jackson Hospital. I had never been to the chef Ralph Pagano’s Naked Taco on South Beach, but for some reason I really wanted to go to his new restaurant, Naked Lunch, for… well lunch. […]

Food, vibe, and decor very on point, but brand new service has some kinks to work out- Wynwood Diner (American)

After getting way behind on blog posts in general and deciding to first complete posts about “recent” trips (Atlanta, Baltimore, St. Augustine, Chicago), I am now ready to tackle the 20 some Miami posts that have accumulated. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel! I generally plan to go chronologically from […]

Mixing up the traditional and the nontraditional for brunch- The Publican (West Loop, Chicago, Outside Trips)

Brunch! I knew Chicago was a pretty great brunch city, so I was excited for the Sunday morning of my trip. Miami has some decent breakfast and brunch places, but the brunch culture just isn’t there like it is in Portland, Chicago, New York, etc. There were a few brunch places that came up in […]

Back to brunching up north + gluten-free biscuits and English muffins- Woodberry Kitchen (Baltimore)

When I travel I am pretty serious about doing in-depth research into the gluten-free scene of wherever I am going. Sometimes it’s very clear what places I should visit and other times I might be more ambivalent about what I am finding or there are so many options it’s difficult to decide (or any combinations […]

Grabbing some breakfast “in dough”- DOLCE Cafe (St. Augustine, Gluten-Free Crepes)

After walking around and exploring the historic section of St. Augustine and then meandering by some of its Gilded Age buildings like Flager College and the Lightner Museum, I kept going south to check out the more residential area south of King Street. It’s still very historic, but I was looking for something less touristy and […]

Finally getting macarons, macaroons, and meringues straight- Petit Provence (Portland, Gluten-Free)

One of my last new discoveries in terms of restaurants in Portland was a breakfast with an old high school friend at Petit Provence on NE Alberta St. As I’ve shared in some other posts about Alberta (namely Via Chicago), the street has changed dramatically since I moved to Miami. It’s pretty crazy to me […]
