Sake bomb?

Some places are calling a shot of sake dropped into a glass or Red Bull sake bombs as well now.

Anything newer or on the way to Dade?

I believe the chef is a gentleman named Elliot Harris, who came from San Francisco.....

Wiki is not always a reliable resource. You can find it in Florida.

Wuliangye brand baijiu

In Florida you can get Baojing brand Baijiu, I would imagine they are the same thing. Baojing also makes a vodka which is available down here. Here is a link

Miami Wine Shops

Best Time Wines is great. They are on 8th street near 57th ave. They have great prices on nice wines and the owners are very helpful. They also have wonderful little sandwiches (great stop for lunch). They sample wines everyday for you to drink while you shop or wait for your sandwich. Great spot.

Using chocolate in a vodka infusion

There is a chocolate vodka named Alchemy (delicious). You should ask your liqour store to bring it in or the Three Olives, if you are a regular they might. Most states carry the brands, its just a matter of the store ordering it from the distributor.

Badrutt's Place is beautiful. The food is amazing. I had a porcini mushroom risotto, cooked perfecty and a very simple arugula salad to start. A little pricey but very good. They have a nice cigar selection also.

Miami Fish Tacos

Sandbar in the Grove has good fish tacos. Mondays are taco day and they are pretty cheap.

Rum

Rhum Clement is great. They have an orange based rum called Creole Shrubb thats amazing. Also tried a VSOP which is reasonably priced and one called Cuvee Homere by Rhum Clement, this one is like drinking cognac or a single malt, very nice. Here's the link: http://rhumclement.com/

Has a chowhound done a vodka blind tasting? Post results please.

Try to find 44 North "Magic Valley". I tried it the other day, potato vodka from Idaho. They also make a huckleberry flavor so make sure to ask for the Magic Valley. It's excellent..

TOP DOGS IN FLA

When was the last time someone had a dog from a street vendor in downtown Miami. I had one the other day and it hit the spot, all the trimmings. Those Colombianos are pretty good late night!!

Gabbiano vs Il Mulino

Il Gabbiano is amazing!! They provide so many goodies before you order you almost can't eat anymore. Until you see the menu and erverything sounds delicious....and it is. They were the original owners of Il Mulino in New York. Then sold the restaurant and name. They had nothing to do with Il Mulino in Sunny Isles. Also, Gino and Fernando (two of the owners) are actually on the floor and in the kitchen cooking, the way it should be. Everything is made fresh daily. Il Gabbiano is definitely worth checking out.

Choosing one of the three for romantic dinner...

Never been to Talula or Romeo's. Il Gabbiano is amazing and has a beautiful view, very romantic. The service is impeccable. Everything is made fresh everyday including the pasta. Definitely share (it's large) the pasta trio as an appetizer.

Tequila?

My two favorite reposados are Cazadores and Partida. Both are extremely smooth and perfect for sipping.

TOP ITALIAN IN FLA

1-Il Gabbiano (downtown Miami), the pasta trio is a must!
2-Sylvano's (Alton Rd.), simple Italian and moderate pricing.
3-Cafe Martorano (Oakland Park Blvd), amazing family stlye dishes, a little loud and very cheesy. But, amazing food.
