Maryel Epps sings live from 12:30 to 2:30 pm at Caviar Kaspia's Sunday Brunch. Maryel with Sunday brunch is a great Beach tradition that dates back almost two decades.

Didn't see Julie & Julia, but it occurs to me that they don't make food movies for guys. Let's get Bruce Willis to play James Beard in Fry Hard. I'd go see that.

Farm Sanctuary, the nation's leading farm animal protection organization, last week announced that Boston-based pediatrician Allan E. Kornberg, M.D. will be the new executive director. Presumably no foie gras was served at his inaugural luncheon.

Caviar Kaspia's Eggs Barry has to be the town's most expensive plate of yolks -- $59! Eggs come atop brioche with half-ounce of Imperial Baeri caviar (from Siberian sturgeon), one ounce of salmon eggs, and smoked paprika hollandaise.

How about Schwarzenegger in Conan the Culinarian?

North One 10 closed quietly some weeks ago. We look forward to seeing Dewey LoSasso cook up a storm in another kitchen -- either his own or someone else's -- hopefully sooner rather than later.

Late weigh-in on pizza wars: I prefer the thin crisp Sosta pie over Casale's softer, doughier crust.

Not enough chefs do savory soufflés. Last one I had was at Pascal's on Ponce -- a delectable "upside down" gruyere cheese soufflé with parmesan sauce. Does anyone make a lobster soufflé? And if not, why not? (I mean other than the tricky logistics in getting it to the table at just the right time).

Sorry, Eggs Barry is not the most expensive plate of yolks. Caviar Kaspia's scrambled eggs with a half-ounce of white sturgeon caviar is $62. On the other hand, a Bloody Mary is only $5.

Jean-Claude Van Damme and Ice T playing Roux brothers Albert and Michel in Double Impact?

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
