Ground bacon, doughnut buns, guava jelly, and more make for some fascinating burgers!- LoKal (Coconut Grove, Restaurants)

A really good friend of mine was back home in Miami for a long weekend from New York and our group of friends had plans to hang out at several points throughout the weekend. One night we made dinner and beer/cider plans and decided to meet in the Grove, which is roughly halfway between his parents’ […]

Adding to the list of relaxing places to just sit and drink + house made sausages- The Mighty (Coral Way, Bars, Restaurant)

The other weekend I met up with some friends at the Mighty on Coral Way. One of them lives in the Gables and has passed it a few times and wondered about it. Coral Way has always been a place I want to explore more on the restaurant side. The row of trees in the […]

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 […]

Three of my five dinners in Atlanta and should have made it 5/5- Yeah! Burger (Gluten-Free Fried Chicken, Outside Trips)

To say this post has been on my mind for a while would be an understatement. I visited Atlanta in April and it is now the beginning of September… I’ll save the lame excuses (and I’ve mentioned them a few times in other recent overdue posts), but I can pretty confidently say that I still […]

My assumptions really made an a** out of me, but hopefully not you!- Brick House (Bar, Wynwood)

A few weeks ago a co-worker on my team, who has become a very close friend, transitioned to another team. It was very bittersweet to have her “leave”, but I am really happy for her new opportunity and luckily she will still be around the office. To celebrate she wanted us all to go to happy hour […]

Look Mom I ate a burger with my hands!- Burger and Beer Joint (Gluten-Free buns, South Beach/Brickell)

Note: the South Beach location is no longer a Burger and Beer franchise and has changed names. Unsure if they still have gluten-free buns.  After a somewhat early night out in South Beach (ie. ending around 11 PM), my friends and I were pretty hungry and a few people wanted to eat at Burger and […]

The pigs aren’t flying. But maybe because I had bacon in my gluten-free burger at MIA (yes you’re reading that correctly)- The Counter (Miami International Airport)

Leading up to my return to Portland the last couple days I had quite a number of special new gluten-free experiences on Sunday and Monday (Pei Wei Asian Diner and Cafe Prima Pasta). Unknown to me I was about the make it the trifecta and do new gluten-free three days in a row! I was […]
