Let me start by saying that I’ve been craving this salad two days after having it. Yes, it was that good. Crunchy haricot verts, roasted fingerling potatoes, Nicoise olives, a hard-boiled, tomatoes, and baked salmon. With the right ingredients it isn’t hard to get this classic salad right, but Taverna deliciously exceeded expectations. Specializing in […]

Quick Bites: India’s Restaurant

One way to judge a restaurant is by their cuisine’s common dish, in this case I chose the Lamb Curry… this was definitely the right choice for me. The curry was not very spicy (even though I wanted it to be) but it was full of spices that worked very well together. The lamb was […]

The Best of Brunch: Whisk Gourmet Food & Catering

I stumbled upon a great lunch spot in Coral Gables last week called Whisk. It is nestled around the corner of Sunset Place, but could easily be missed. Whisk has a nice Southern flare to it. Drinks and cocktails are served in cute mason jars. It reminded me of a low-key version of Yard Bird. […]

Quick Bites: Taverna San Marco

These peach empanadas are by far the best dessert empanadas I’ve ever eaten. Crispy on the outside, lightly powdered with sugar and delicious peach cooked to perfection on the inside. Not too sweet, even with the caramelized white ganache that they lay on. Top them off with whipped cream and you’ll order 2 more… I […]
