S. S. Wreck and Galley, Marathon, Florida

One big iced tea.

Driving down the Overseas Highway, we usually only stop for gas, coffee, or a (human or canine) bathroom break. Whether I am driving southbound on a typical weekend, or after a vacation, getting home quickly is the top priority. Sometimes, however, we find ourselves on the road at meal time, . . . → Read More: S. S. Wreck and Galley, Marathon, Florida

Made 2 Order, Tavernier, Florida

The Florida Keys enjoy an abundance of seafood, laid-back charm, and beautiful scenery. It is not difficult to find a roadside restaurant with fantastic water views and Made 2 Order is no different. The inside is small, old, and not terribly inviting. The back patio, however, boasts a peaceful canal view.

Seven Fish, Key West: New Location, Same Great Food

The folks at Seven Fish, formerly housed on the corner of Olivia and Elizabeth Streets in Key West, bought land and built a shiny new restaurant.

Farmhouse Kitchen, Boca Raton

Farmhouse Kitchen is a lovely choice in Boca.

We recently met some friends for dinner, and in choosing a location it had to meet a stringent set of criteria. Somewhere between Delray Beach and Hollywood, preferably in Boca, vaguely child-friendly, good food and casual atmosphere. I also didn’t want to go someplace absurdly expensive. . . . → Read More: Farmhouse Kitchen, Boca Raton

Slovenian Wine + Florida Lobster = A Great Evening at The Flaming Buoy

A couple of weeks ago, while the dogs were taking me for a walk, my friend Fred (co-owner of The Flaming Buoy) came running out of the restaurant. He shouted from across the street “We’re having a winemaker dinner with the Edi Simcic people. Want to come?” Of course, I don’t need to be . . . → Read More: Slovenian Wine + Florida Lobster = A Great Evening at The Flaming Buoy

Lucy’s Retired Surfers Bar, Key West

Yes, there are tiny mermaids in my cocktail.

Lucy’s Retired Surfers Bar is new on the Key West dining and bar scene, and it seems like it is here to stay. Housed in the former Finnegan’s Wake space, it was something else in between. (I can’t even recall the name of that short-lived place.) . . . → Read More: Lucy’s Retired Surfers Bar, Key West

Miami Spice: Il Mulino, Sunny Isles Beach

An array of bread choices at Il Mulino.

Miami Spice month-and-a-half is an excellent opportunity to try new restaurants, or old favorites, with a pre-set three-course menu for $39 per person. My parents seized the opportunity to take us to Il Mulino for our anniversary. When we lived in New York, we were one . . . → Read More: Miami Spice: Il Mulino, Sunny Isles Beach

Kojin Noodle Bar, Key West

OMG Chicken dumplings.

It is entirely possible to pass the tiny take-out window without a second glance. Kojin Noodle Bar, just off Duval Street in Key West, is easy to miss. This small eatery churns out fabulous Asian comfort food.
