Trader Joe's?!?

I also read that In-N-Out is moving to Texas. Hopefully Florida will follow suit in both regards. I suppose I could always move to Texas!

New, coming to Miami in 2011

An online inquiry on Sir Pizza's website got a same-day response from management: hopefully by Mid July.

New, coming to Miami in 2011

I see there is a Sir Pizza opening on Biscayne Blvd in North Miami. Anyone have any information when it will be open?

I thinki TJ's is more like Whole Foods meets Big Lots.

Best Organic Produce - Farmers Market in Miami area

There is an awesome farmer's market in Liberty City that started up two weeks ago. My wife affectionately calls it the 'Ghetto Farmer's Market.' Don't worry, it is a cultural experience going to this area of town and the market itself is safe.

The market is all local farmers with a large organic selection. The best thing is...it is super cheap.

They run from now until April.

Lychee sightings - 2010

I saw lots of lychees on Red Road/Old Cutler in the Gables a few weeks ago.

I did spot fresh lobster on Red Road last weekend. A bunch of kids were selling out of an SUV.

Norman's 180

Once they open up for lunch in August, I am there to try the wig (dining options with a five-month-old are limited at night).

New or Coming to Miami / Dade - 2010 Edition

We have been here twice thus far, 1 breakfast & 1 lunch. We hope this place catches on. I hear it can get busy for Sunday brunch, but our Thursday lunch and Saturday breakfast were dead, dead, dead.
-The cookies are to die for. The redneck in the kitchen made us a half dozen of the oatmeal when they ran out of the big ones...warm and gooey out of the oven is crazy good. We also had a giant chocolate chip after a Saturday morning breakfast.
-The baked goods are amazing here. Before our breakfast, they brought us a plate with a selection of morning treats: Sticky Bun, Almond croissant, shortbread cookie and a scone...all rocked our world.
-Try the V juice (carrot, apple & beet)...it's worth all 600 pennies.
-Salads are good.
-Wasn't a fan of the BBQ pork...until I dipped it in the accompanying meat drippings.
-Grilled cheese was tasty, 3 cheeses. Though borderline too cheesy for me.
-Banana-cinnamon smoothie is phenomenal.
-Brioche French toast is drenched in cinnamon butter and, well...just meh.

Anything new or coming to Dade late '09?

Almost sounds tempting. If I could find easy parking I may go.

Pizza in Miami

I just remember hearing talk on the boards of the Herald lifting ideas from our posts.

Pizza in Miami

The Herald article looks a lot like the pizza crawls...curious...

New or coming soon '09 edition (Miami)

Charlotte on the Beach is so good! That garlic aioli is to die for!

New or coming soon '09 edition (Miami)

I have to say I had Kingdom off of CH recs, and I hated it. The burger was way too big (they start at 1/2 lb.) and overcooked...like hockey puck overcooked. When you ask for medium rare, you want a cool pink center...not a grey lifeless mess.

Thumbs down. Oh, and $4 for a PBR? You've gotta be crazy.

New or coming soon '09 edition (Miami)

I chatted with a member of Hakkasan's corporate office, and the restaurant is planning on opening in January or February of 2009.

North Miami Rumblings...

Went once. Liked it. Wife hated it. Never went back. Bad, bad location.

North Miami Rumblings...

I drove past 21 a couple days ago and thought they were doing pretty poor as well. I haven't been there in about a year (mainly because they always seem to be closed when I drive by). The location seems bad to me. They need foot traffic. I liked the burger I ate, just hated the damn bun.

retail beer in Winter Park?

Try Whole Foods at 1989 Aloma Ave. Good selection.

A Plunge into Cheesy Lava Sauce

I also tried the Volcano taco. I like spicy things, but it was too hot.

Brunch without eggs? Or cheese? I am skeptical.

Five Guys Famous Burgers and Fries Tampa

Actually, I just wish we had an In-n-Out and I would skip 5 Guys entirely.

Five Guys Famous Burgers and Fries Tampa

Happy to report we finally tried as well. I thought the bacon cheeseburger was great. Tasted like a backyard burger of many youthful summers. Juicy, covered with assorted toppings...decadent. The fries are the bomb! When you go, split your order and get half cajun and half regular fries. I do wish they served milkshakes though.

Local (Miami) restaurant owner killed

Maximiliano DeVita, co-owner of Sopranos and Che Sopranos, was apparently shot and killed by an 80 year old man over a disagreement.

http://www.miamiherald.com/460/story/...

My thoughts and prayers go out to the DeVita family and friends.
