    Dish - Saying Grace over Life's Food

    Okay, relax, this is not a public-service announcement. But imagine, just for a minute, having AIDS. The weakness, the fatigue, the constant infections -- you own them. What you don't own is what's necessary for an immune-deficient body to fight th...

    Side Dish - Stormin' Norman

    I'm not the only one drenched in bad feelings about Bamb, apparently. A source told me that Bamb owner Karim Masri sent consulting chef Norman Van Aken an e-mail saying Masri wasn't going to pay Van Aken, who has placed his personally trained prot...

    The News Is Good - The Newsroom

    The "mall experience," for me, is pretty much defined by the quality of my trudge from parking lot to movie theater and back out again. Even from this admittedly limited perspective, though, I've been able to glean the obvious: To succeed as a mall r...

    Dish - Bamb Snoots

    It may not be as elemental as the chicken-or-egg controversy, but it still ranks, in some neighborhoods, as an age-old question: Do you want to be a restaurant or a club? Judging from opening night, Cameron Diaz's new eatery, Bamb, doesn't know th...

    Tuscan Steak, Florida Style - Tuscan Steak

    Tuscan steak. The very words bring back memories of a weekly carnivorous ritual during my couple of deliciously decadent decades in Italy. Living in Rome had its pluses and minuses, to be sure, but dining almost daily around the city, with its more t...

    Juiced at the Palace - El Palacio de los Jugos

    You've probably seen El Palacio de Los Jugos on your TV sets in recent weeks, located as it is on the corner of Flagler Street and Red Road, the epicenter of Elian-inspired demonstrations. (If the name doesn't sound familiar, maybe tear gas was obscu...

    Dish - In the Company of Men

    In the process of learning about wine, I have discovered I am a woman. A woman among men. Among many men. In fact it's not unusual for me to supply the only burst of estrogen during a testosterone-dominated winemaker's luncheon. Every once in a whi...

    Side Dish - Heeere's Johnny and Hillary 2000

    Wheeeere's Johnny V? Looks as though I'm not the only one searching. Jonathan Eismann, who took over the erstwhile Johnny V's Kitchen, needs him bad. Apparently Johnny V is the only one who knows the combination of the safe on the premises. But Jonny...

    Depressionist Culinary Art - Meza Fine Art gallerycaf

    About a year and a half ago, Andrea Meza decided to turn her Meza Fine Art Gallery in Coral Gables into a gallery caf that would feature fine art, fine music, and fine "global" food. A fine idea. The handsome gallery/dining room of Meza Fine Art gal...

    Sprout's Last Stand - The Last Carrot

    In Coconut Grove, where commerce and nature have wrestled over square footage for decades, The Last Carrot juice bar remains a tribute to hipper, or hippier, days. Those would be the Seventies, when "the Grove" implied folksingers, incense, McGovern ...

    Dish - Chef Lukins Is in the House

    "Is it you?" Sheila Lukins asked, smiling hugely, as she trotted into Bal Harbour Beach House's Nantucket-style screened-in porch for an interview. "It's me," I acknowledged, standing up somewhat uncertainly to greet her. "Is it you?" In truth I didn...

    Dish - Useful, Useless Culinary Collectibles

    Years ago, on Ponce de Leon Boulevard in Coral Gables, I used to wander into an eclectic shop called the Culinary Bazaar. Located next to Caffe Baci, it was the ideal place to wile away a wait for your table (and there was always a wait at Baci). Cul...

    Side Dish - Road rumors

    Lincoln Road is a fertile ground for rumors, but I gotta tell you, few have panned out. First there was the story that Red Lobster was replacing South Beach Brasserie. Uh-uh. Then I heard Cheesecake Factory was coming to haunt the Road. Still no fina...

    Unlucky Strikes - Caf Mosaic

    Those who believe in unlucky restaurant locations would probably consider the National Hotel one such site. They could trace the origins of the curse to the Oval Room, which opened three years ago in the ravishingly renovated hotel. I still remember ...

    Hold the Chihuahua - Texas Taco Factory

    Fast food is, in essence, a less expensive mockery of real food. In the case of the Texas Taco Factory, the fare is twice removed from reality. It caricatures Tex-Mex, which is itself a bastardization of Mexican. In a way this extra degree of separat...
