I went to Divieto Ristorante for the first time last night with some friends to celebrate one of my friend's upcoming move to the big apple. Our reservation was at 9PM and when we arrived it was packed. The 7 of us sat in a circular table that was a bit cramped but we made … Continue reading Divieto Ristorante – Perfect for Celebrations!
I went to Yumbrella Food Hall on Friday for happy hour with some friends and it was just about one of the only lively places at the quiet and somewhat deserted Sunset Place. I remember back in the day when Sunset Place was the "it" spot – now, other malls in Miami trump this once … Continue reading Yumbrella Food Hall
I went up to Orlando this past weekend for Megacon and ended up exploring Winter Garden Friday & Saturday night with a friend who lives in the area. She took me to check out some of her favorite spots in this charming little city. I wanted to share the restaurants I dined at with you … Continue reading My Winter Garden Dining Experience

Whenever I came home from college (I was going to school at UCF), it was a tradition for my parents to bring me to Pincho. I was going to Pincho back … Continue reading Pincho’s April Special – Pipo’s Choice Burger

On Friday night, we opted to avoid the crowds and craziness by going to a restaurant outside of the parks. We were seriously craving sushi, so … Continue reading Seito Sushi (Sand Lake)
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. Last year, I visited NYC twice (in October & December) and both times I ate at the famous Katz Deli. So, it is … Continue reading Roasters ‘N Toasters – A Little Piece of NY in Miami
I was pleasantly surprised by how splendid Serendip-a-Tea was. It may be hidden and not as popular as its neighbor, Hole in the Wall, but it is not to be disregarded. The place is quirky and distinctive. In addition to its heartwarming display of art/decorations and unique teacups, it provides excellent, personalized service. … Continue reading Serendip-A-Tea – Scintillating, Spry & Special!
