Owner Sally is on hand to offer a smile to every diner.
Cafe Seville has long been regarded (by me, and many others) as one of the best restaurants in Fort Lauderdale. It is not trendy. The menu hardly changes. The room is dark. So what is so great about it? The food, the service and the friendliness of the owners. What more could you want? Continue reading Cafe Seville, Fort Lauderdale
It is hard not to be happy in that beautiful setting.
When I saw that I would be dining at Sun-Sun for their Toes in the Sand dinner, I could not help but start singing that Zac Brown song, Toes in the Water. (To myself, of course, as I know that nobody wants to hear me sing.) This led me to referring to the restaurant and menu by the wrong name for a week. Oops.

Any weekend that starts like this is going to be good.
Ahhhhh, the glorious days of lounging in Key West, being totally relaxed with nothing to do. Alas, that was not this past weekend. We had plenty to keep us busy. The weekend kicked off with a feast of sushi at Origami. Yum, yum, yum. In addition, Babka got to play the part of doggie ambassador (more on that on her blog
next week.) Continue reading Weekend Recap
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
I still have a bunch of buy-one-get-one-free deals on my Woman’s Club Restaurant Card, so I have been trying to use them. Last week we decided to try Southernmost Beach Cafe. I had only been there for lunch, when the menu consists of mostly burger and nacho type stuff, so I was curious to see what dinner was all about. Continue reading Southernmost Beach Cafe
The great Greek salad
I saw the construction and the sign for Mrs. Mac’s new building for what seemed like a really long time. After inquiring, I learned that the new location up the street is, in fact, a second
location and they would not be moving or closing the original location. Continue reading Mrs. Mac’s, Key Largo: Second Location
Bring on the peanut dressing.
There are really not that many good restaurants in Fort Lauderdale (There. I said it.) One of the most consistent ones is Thai Spice.
If the opportunity presents itself, I may get to sneak in a civilized lunch with FKGuy once in a while, and we generally go there. Continue reading Thai Spice, Fort Lauderdale
Vegetable dim sum. Yum.
When my father wanted to go to Hakkasan for his birthday, I was surprised. It is in the Fontainbleu hotel on Miami Beach so the place is huge (Hakkasan is about a 10 minute walk from where we valeted the car) and the fact that is undoubtedly crazy-expensive, off we went for what I hoped to be a nice birthday dinner.
Continue reading One and Done: Hakkasan, Miami
Emilio’s Trattoria is the newest restaurant from the folks that opened Cafe Ragazzi in Surfside many years ago. The interior is clean, modern and beautiful. Of course, I have the same pendant lights in my house, so it is definitely my taste. The thing I loved most about Cafe Ragazzi were the pastas. Homemade noodles, amazing sauces and porcini mushrooms with loads of butter. It was enough butter to kill you, but at least you would die happy. Continue reading Emilio’s Trattoria, Bal Harbour, FL
Worth the effort to find.
So there I was, driving northbound along the Overseas Highway when we decided to stop for lunch. Having done some research (OK, I Googled “Dog friendly restaurants in Key Largo” while my mom was driving) we settled on lunch at Snappers. Turns out, they only allow dogs in one small area of the outside, and only after 4 PM. That hardly seems dog friendly to me. After being rejected by Snappers, we headed to the Pilot House. This time I called ahead and made sure it is Babka-friendly. Indeed, it is. Continue reading Pilot House, Key Largo
