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 […]

Working down the street from a new Miami favorite could be dangerous…- El Bajareque (Puerto Rican, Wynwood, Gluten-Free)

This summer my work moved offices and while we didn’t move that far (less than a mile) it did change everyone’s lunch routines a little bit. Overall the move was a positive one, but it had been nice in the old office to just walk downstairs and take advantage of all the restaurants in Midtown. It’s […]

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 […]

CLOSED: “Made In Italy” but made for Wynwood- Made In Italy Gourmet Market (Wynwood, Gluten-Free)

I’d be a proud citizen of the “Nearby Republic of Coconut Grove (Neighborhood, Sights)

Pretty much since my earliest days in Miami I’ve loved Coconut Grove (“The Grove”). It’s not only really walkable with a lot to do, but it has charm and character. It feels more to me like a medium city’s town center than a neighborhood of a big city. Back before the bars in Wynwood developed, […]

Nothing like a gluten-free’s determination- Laduree (Macarons, French, Gluten-Free)

Over the holidays in Portland I went to breakfast with a friend and discovered the gluten-free joy that is macarons (blog post here). For the longest time I had gotten macarons, macaroons, and meringues confused and didn’t know how much I was missing out with macarons (the one with just one “o”). And they are […]
