My friends had been raving about this place for weeks, so when we found ourselves in Hollywood one weekend, we decided to give it a try. (Well, it is not so much that we decided, as our friends calling and saying “We’ll pick you up at 10. We are going to Chill Bar.”) Continue reading Chill Bar, Hollywood, FL
Party in my mouth wings!
Recently I had a meeting in Miami that started with lunch at The Filling Station. To say it is kitchy would be an understatement. With menu items named after cars and trucks, and sandwiches served with tater tots, I knew there was going to be some good food here, too. Continue reading The Filling Station, Miami
Portobella sandwich... yummy and healthy!
When I saw Le Petit Paris pop up recently, I thought to myself, “just what we need… another French cafe, across the street from one and a couple blocks away from one of my favorites, Le Creperie.
” When we went there as part of the neighborhood stroll during the Key West Food and Wine Festival
, it seemed lovely, so I knew we would be trying it soon. Continue reading Le Petit Paris, Key West
A stunning - and delicious - Caprese salad
After enjoying the Aperitivo party a couple of weeks ago, we decided to give the restaurant a try, too. I did not realize the traffic nightmare that stood between me and great pasta. We left my parents house in North Miami Beach for the twenty minute drive to South Beach. It took almost an hour. The return trip took nearly two hours. Nonetheless, there was dinner involved. Continue reading South Beach Italian: dei Frescobaldi
A good start.
We had plans to go out to dinner with friends in November, which became December. Finally, the third week in January, we got to see them and made our way to dba/cafe in Fort Lauderdale. We knew about dba because it was opened by one of the former owners of Il Mercato (always a favorite). Continue reading dba/cafe, Fort Lauderdale
Ekmek... fun to say, more fun to eat.
I tend to like small, owner-operated restaurants. I am not typically a fan of chains (except maybe Chipotle for a quick lunch in a pinch). So, when my parents made a reservation at Sea Grill for their anniversary, I was expecting a small, intimate restaurant. I was wrong. Continue reading Sea Grill, North Miami Beach, FL
What a fun crowd!
The last time I was at Dave and Buster’s was a while ago, and I don’t recall much about the food, either. So, when we were invited back, after their recent renovation I was definitely curious. 3 Loud Women and our husbands descended on D&B on a quiet Tuesday evening. The general manager welcomed us and gave us a tour of the recent upgrades before he sat us down for dinner. Continue reading Dave and Buster’s, Hollywood, FL
The start of the dinner
On the 24th of this month (yes, that is Christmas Eve), I will celebrate my birthday. A big birthday. There will be several dinners with friends and no grand party (we already did that for FKGuy’s birthday earlier this year. It was a lot of work.) There will also be a vacation in advance of the birthday (the cruise blogs will begin next week. Stay tuned.) Continue reading The Celebration Begins
Just when you think you cannot possibly eat another slice of pizza, it happens. You end up hungry, on Thanksgiving day, when not a lot is open. We found ourselves at Piola in Hallandale. The Italian restaurant chain occupies an unassuming space in the Diplomat Mall. Continue reading Piola, Hallandale, FL
We had lamented for years the lack of good pizza here, and all of a sudden there is an abundance. Between Roostica on Stock Island, Zaza’s in Sugarloaf, and now Onlywood in Key West, we should be set for a while. Assuming they all stay in business for a while. Continue reading Onlywood, Key West
