What's your New Year's resolution?

Is it to take better care of yourself or find a new job? Maybe you want to go back to school to finish that degree or pay down those credit cards.

We asked some of Miami's best chefs and bartenders what their resolution was for the new year. Here's what they said.

"I want to open another restaurant. And run 1,000 miles."

"My resolution is to stop telling people to go fuck off. Serenity now...serenity now..."


Daniel Serfer (Blue Collar)

"I am going to make a very serious concentrated effort to spell check my emails, tweets, and texts, before I send them and to actually correct them."

Jamie DeRosa (Tongue & Cheek)

"The problem with resolutions is that most people make them either too big and sweeping, or too ambitious. Make a resolution you think you can keep. My infamous resolution comes to head on day one of the New Year. That "I'm never drinking again" feeling you get after your New Year's Eve shenanigans, with your head in the toilet and your pounding headache. This year, I'm hoping for no hangover and with Tongue & Cheek opening for New Year's Day brunch, there won't be any late night partying on Tuesday."

Gabe Orta and Elad Zvi (Broken Shaker)

"We both don't believe in making resolutions at the end of the year. That should be something you constantly do all year round."

Ralph Pagano (Alba Seaside Italian)

"I resolve to not bite off more than I can chew, to sleep more, to go in the ocean at least once a week for 10 minutes...and to learn another language. Maybe Chinese."

Whatever your resolution is, we sincerely wish you success with achieving your goal. Even if your goal is to have no resolutions at all.
