    The Future of Dining - Bistro Bisou

    I don't mean to put any pressure on it or anything, but the future of Miami as a serious restaurant town rests on Bistro Bisou. Okay, so maybe that is a little pressure. And maybe a bit overstated too. But the point is still a good one. See, ju...

    Remember, It's Just a Firkin Pub

    When Manuel Martinez, a Cervantes scholar, opened the Spanish restaurant Don Quixote in Coconut Grove five years ago, he expended considerable money and effort on transforming the dining room into a semblance of the town of La Mancha. If the food had...

    Where the Green Things Are

    This is the motto at Giardino Gourmet Salads: "Real, simple food." That, however, makes the place sound a lot simpler than it is. With the exception of a soup of the day, a stuffed baked potato, several desserts (including some fabulous seasonal frui...

    Chasing Emeril

    It shouldn't come as a surprise that you're not familiar with Preston's, even if it has been situated in the high-profile Loews Miami Beach Hotel since 1998. It's the fate one might expect to befall a property's number two dining option, especially w...

    Grease Pit

    Now I know what my car feels like when I take it in for an oil change. It's been days since my dinner at Jumbo Chinese Restaurant, a depressing little dim sum joint in North Miami Beach, and I can still taste the grease from just about everything I...

    And Now for Something Completely Familiar

    Bice has branches in Barcelona and Buenos Aires, Mexico City and Montreal, Dubai and Delray Beach -- about two dozen restaurants in some twenty cities, with another fifteen slated to open for business by 2006. Beatrice Ruggeri (nickname: Bice) began ...

    Swamp Chomp

    It's more than just a little bit unusual for a restaurant's grand opening to be announced by a banner that trumpets not only the date it commences business -- in the case of Le Marais Express, this year's Jewish holiday Passover, several months ago -...

    Two Types of Tapas

    Restaurants representing Cuba, Mexico, Nicaragua, Colombia, Uruguay, and just about every other Spanish-speaking nation can be found within the corridor of strip malls along Bird Road in West Miami-Dade. Few have been around as long as the Spanish So...

    This Time a Great Notion

    Having eaten at my share of bookstore cafs over the years, I must admit that while the melding of good books and good food is sometimes a great notion, the result usually is more bone in the throat than budding prospects. As restaurateurs, most bo...

    Victorious Victuals

    Having once been stung by a man-of-war, I was less than excited to be seated with my back to a tall, narrow tank filled with gracefully flowing jellyfish, glowing translucently in blue neon light. The waiter's chatter about chef James Wierzelewski's ...

    The Freshest of Fish

    If I had to choose one nation as my favorite food source, it would be China. Over the years and around the world, I've found a reliable indicator of great Chinese restaurants is the presence of fish tanks. Not the decorative kind but the sort in whic...

    The Flavors of Freedom

    "Give me liberty or give me Parrilla Liberty." I think a famous freedom fighter said that. If he didn't, he should have, because a meal at Parrilla Liberty -- an ink spot of an Argentine steak house just blocks from Lincoln Road -- will definit...

    Moo Times Two

    I have long maintained that if the axiom "you are what you eat" were true, the language among Argentines would be reduced to only one word: moo. The Knife and Matador, a pair of all-you-can-stuff-your-gut-with Argentine steak houses that have recentl...

    In Wine There Is Truth

    Nothing Wild About This Cat

    Jaguar Ceviche Spoon Bar & Latam Grill is a mouthful of a moniker to pronounce, yet if the aim was for a definitive nomenclature, it should be called Jaguar Ceviche Spoon Bar, Latam Grill & Mexican Restaurant. Now all you need to know is that Latam s...

    It Really Is Good

    Wouldn't it be nice if every restaurant were named as truthfully as Le Bon (an Italian dialect for "it's good")? Then we'd be seeing restaurant names like these: "It's Okay: We suck only a little bit." "It's Mediocre: We suck a lot but the ...
