Has Michy's reopened?

thank you for the update. will try it next year on my annual Miami trip.
This year's trip included the following:
SEAGRAPE- excellent, and loved the decor
BLUE COLLAR-twice. If I lived in Miami, would be there weekly. Best key lime pie.
MAROOSH (Lebanese in the Gables) skip it
BLACK BRICK- loved it
STRADA in the GROVE- skip it. was okay, but not great Italian

Breakfast- GREEN ST (Grove)- excellent American breakfast. ate there most days
had brunch at PINCH ME GASTROPUB (Gables) excellent service, only OK food
OB HOUSE- (Ft Lauderdale) Best breakfast anywhere! on our way to and from the airport
thank you everyone for the excellent referrals.

Has Michy's reopened?

Have now booked OOlite, Seagrape, Strada in the Grove and will return to last year's favorite, Blue Collar.

Still looking for another 2. Did not love Mandolin, but would like another rec for Greek/Turkish, if there is another good option.

Any really good Chinese or Vietnamese?
I have avoided Hakasaan in NYC, so don't know if I want to try it in Miami. I hear mixed reviews for the price. I am staying in Coral Gables, and I heard there is something around there?

Has Michy's reopened?

thanks, Frodnesor. I will try Seagrape.
I am looking for anything new that is not too funky (nose to tail) as I am a vegetarian with occassional fish. But, I am a New Yorker so have very high standards.

Has Michy's reopened?

I am in Miami once a year and always look forward to dinner at Michy's. Checked out there FB page and found that they were closing mid last year and planned on reopening late summer. Did they ever reopen, and what is it now? Will be in town next week.

Breakfast in Palm Beach area, as well as dinner

thanks, Erica
I tend to eat in smaller neighborhood places versus the latest foodie spots.
Latest find is 'Supper' in the LES. small and quirky, but excellent Italian.

I have heard alot on Buccan, which we will put on the list. Looking for Good Italian, Greek or Turkish, local fish. Nothing meat-centric.

Breakfast in Palm Beach area, as well as dinner

I notice posts on the breakfast subject are a few years old, and we know how quickly restaurants change. Will be staying in Palm Beach with husband and parents via FLL airport for 5 days early February.
Looking for excellent coffee and American delicious breakfast. New Yorker so I know my stuff. Ate at O-B House last year after arriving in FLL before heading to Coral Gables. last year.

Dinner will be with husband and parents. Nothing escoteric or too funky. Not stuffy or fancy. Casual. I am a veggie who will eat fish. Local in feeling is great.
Loved Blue Collar and Michy's in Miami last year, for example.

SF- Union Square Breakfast

Thanks. Been to Mamas. Worth the travel. I will also try your recommendations, since I have a few mornings.

SF- Union Square Breakfast

Will be in town for 3 nights. Will be early on line at Mamas. Any other recommendations? Excellent American breakfast. Favorite meal of the day. Must have good coffee!

Nice Family Dinner East Side

I was thinking Hearth. I don't think it is right for this group. Too much meat.

Nice Family Dinner East Side

6 adults, approx $50.00-60 pp, this Tuesday. 12th street-96th st/ east of 5th ave. More local kind of place, but nice. Lived in NYC until a year ago. Considering calling Antonucci's, but have been there many times.

Nice Family Dinner East Side

Nice Birthday dinner for adults. Recently moved out of the city, so not up on what's good, lately. Not crazy expensive, but very good food. No steak places due to some veggie's in the group.

Thank you. Will try next time I am in Coral Gables probably next year. Hopefully the restaurant will still be there and still be good

American breakfast Ft Lauderdale airport to Coral Gables

Feedback on Ft Lauderdale breakfast near airport-
I am happy to report that we went to O-B House. EXCELLENT. Contrary to a few reports, service was very pleasant and professional. Coffee was a bit too 'Starbucks ' burned tasting for me. Coffee was not weak, good thing. All around great food and experience. Most highly recommend.

Will report back on where I ended up, and how it was. thanks everyone for your advice.

American breakfast Ft Lauderdale airport to Coral Gables

I recall Lester's as a basic diner, and would go there if there is no other option, due to proximity to airport. Will be starving after the early flight. Waffle House is not a place I had ever planned on entering.

Coral Gables area Traditional Breakfast place

I will be staying in Coral Gables for a week and am very familiar with and like Chocolate Fashion. Anything else to recommend traditional breakfast wise, including eggs and really good coffee? Willing to drive a few miles.

Will arrive from NYC mid morning starving for a high quality American breakfast . Good diner is okay, but must be special. Great coffee is all important.

American breakfast Ft Lauderdale Airport to Coral Gables

Any recommendations for a high quality American breakfast ? Flying into Ft Lauderdale arriving mid morning from NYC. Heading to Coral Gables. Gourmet diner type of place is good, too.

Midtown , very East breakfast.

Thank you . Tried Comfort Diner on 45th. Good waffles and French toast. Wish the oatmeal was better than the usual Quaker Oats. Better than average diner for breakfast. Great coffee bar next store, too.
