Onlywood, Key West

Yes, it is half eaten. I could not resist. The photo had to wait.

I have been in Key West long enough that it is time to start adding some restaurant and activity updates. We’ve been to Onlywood several times, including once this week. I was sick with a bad cold, but did not . . . → Read More: Onlywood, Key West

Wine Dinners: Tribeca Grill and Maloney and Porcelli

The wine lineup at Tribeca Grill

While most dinners for us tend to include wine, they can’t all be called “wine dinners“. Of course, once we planned this New York trip, we started contacting the winos – er, wine lovers – that we know there to connect for dinner. Monday night brought us to . . . → Read More: Wine Dinners: Tribeca Grill and Maloney and Porcelli

Cayo Mexican Cantina, Key West

Peri-Peri chicken is absolutely the star of the show here.

The food truck scene in Key West has recently gained some steam, despite city efforts to make things more difficult. The city loves coming up with new regulations, and often can’t decide who should have to abide by these new rules. Shockingly, they haven’t . . . → Read More: Cayo Mexican Cantina, Key West

Diamond in the Dark: Blind Tasting the Wines of Francis Ford Coppola

Thats me, on the right, with my friend Marcie, awaiting the blind tasting.

Last week, I had the privilege of attending a truly wonderful event: a blind wine tasting. I have done many wine tastings before, some blind (not knowing what the wines are, as they are in bags or otherwise covered), some not, . . . → Read More: Diamond in the Dark: Blind Tasting the Wines of Francis Ford Coppola

Bourbon Steak Miami, Miami Spice Menu

The private dining room at Bourbon Steak Miami

I was invited to a preview tasting of the Miami Spice menu at Bourbon Steak Miami earlier this week. Miami Spice runs from August 1 through September and offers a $39 three course set menu. At places like Bourbon Steak it also represents a great value.

Sunday Brunch at The Westin, Key West

The first of many mimosas.

Somehow, we had never made it to Sunday Brunch at The Westin before this past weekend. How is that possible? I have no idea. I am, generally, a creature of habit and have had many brunches of late at Hot Tin Roof, 2 Cents, Azur and Blackfin. But we . . . → Read More: Sunday Brunch at The Westin, Key West

The Square Grouper, Cudjoe Key, FL

For several years people have been telling me how good The Square Grouper is, but I have yet to make it there. Why? Well, generally speaking, once I am in Key West I see no good reason to drive another 22 miles north for a meal. I would stop on a drive south, but they . . . → Read More: The Square Grouper, Cudjoe Key, FL

Island Dogs, Key West

Fish tacos at Island Dogs.

Island Dogs is one of the five Pat Croce-owned Key West restaurants, offering simple food and live music. The music is generally in the evenings, so when I was there recently for lunch with a friend, it was pretty quiet. It is a bar atmosphere, as the . . . → Read More: Island Dogs, Key West

Firefly, Key West

Fried green tomatoes with amazing fries.

Several months ago, Firefly opened in the Bahama Village area of Key West, in a space formerly owned by Colombian Grace. The space is huge, with a second floor balcony overlooking Petronia Street, and is minimalist and lovely. It has taken me a while to get there because, . . . → Read More: Firefly, Key West

Flying Fish Cafe, Disney World

Roasted beet and goat cheese salad.

After overcoming the bad table debacle, we settled in for a nice meal. Flying Fish Cafe is located at Disney’s Boardwalk, just steps from the entrance to EPCOT. It is my favorite area to stay because of the proximity to EPCOT, as well as good food. The decor . . . → Read More: Flying Fish Cafe, Disney World
