Brunch is a big deal – especially, in Miami. I tried brunch at Chico Malo on a Saturday (they offer brunch on Saturday & Sunday from 11AM-3PM). It is located in the fresh & ever-growing CityPlace Doral. There are plenty of funky drink options available (including bottomless mimosas & margaritas). I had the Alebrije and … Continue reading Brunch at Chico Malo Miami
I have been wanting to go to Raglan Road for a while now. I made the intelligent decision to make a reservation for one of the nights that we would be in Orlando. We almost didn't make it. The long wait times at the parks made making our 8:45PM reservation implausible, so I called up … Continue reading Raglan Road – Life and Soul of Ireland in Disney Springs
I had the pleasure of dining at Roasters 'N Toasters, a contemporary eatery featuring traditional NYC-style dishes, for the first time last week. It is apparently rated the #1 deli in Florida.

I went on a Sunday afternoon and the place was packed – typically perceived as auspicious and this scenario was no different. … Continue reading Talavera Cocina Mexicana – Classic & Contemporary Cuisine in Coral Gables
Cozy Corner is an old-fashioned mom-and-pop diner that serves breakfast favorites and homestyle comfort food. I happened upon it because Crackers Casual Dining had over an hour wait time. For the record, Cozy Corner was by no means empty – we waited about 10 minutes before getting seated. It appears to be a favorite among the … Continue reading Cozy Corner – Cute Breakfast Spot in Miami Springs
I have been to Crackers Casual Dining a couple of times now and I always enjoy it. The tropical patio layout, live entertainment, and homey Southern-inspired fare distinguishes it from all the brunch spots in the city. The relaxed atmosphere is popular among locals, understandably so. We chose Crackers for our Sunday brunch … Continue reading Crackers Casual Dining – Blissful & Booming Brunch
