    Two Men and a Restaurant - Franz & Josephs

    Franz & Josephs opened last December with little fanfare: no stars, no multimedia PR campaign, no famous chefs or fanciful themes. Seems they're intent on succeeding with a comforting ambiance, reliable service, and good (though not exceptional), mod...

    Dish - Analyze This, Don't Eat It

    Seven years ago, while reading Miami New Times for the first time, I spotted an advertisement seeking a restaurant critic. Aside from qualifications it asked, "Do you have the stomach for this job?" Ambitious, hungry, and more than a little nave, ...

    Tastes Like the Rio Thing - Barroco Restaurant

    To label Barroco Restaurant simply Brazilian would be like calling Caffe Abbracci a pasta joint. Unlike the churrasco houses that are sprouting up from New York to Los Angeles, here you won't find any strolling meat carvers wielding sharp knives and...

    A Night to Remember - Toscana 2000

    A Hut Above the Rest - Original Pita Hut

    Dish - Sue for Your Supper
