I’m in Miami! I can hardly believe it. After a year of hard work, we are on a much-needed vacation. We’ve kind of been on overdrive for the past 11 months, so it feels really good to get away. Miami is one of my favorite places to visit. There are so many beaches and canals, you’re never too far away from the water. We try to make it out to Miami once every year or two, and it’s starting to feel like a second home to us. I love the people, the climate, the cultural diversity. This city never sleeps. I’m not exactly a night owl, but it is fun having late night dinners and taking walks down Ocean Drive, seeing all of the locals showing off their tricked-out cars to the tourists. The old art deco hotels have been renovated into beautiful boutique inns, and many of them have DJ’s that play music late into the night. Sure, there are mosquitos and the occasional humid tropical downpour. It doesn’t diminish my love for Miami. That’s why God created umbrellas and bug repellant.
We’ve got a few local places that we’ve come to know and love… News Cafe, Española Way, Sushi Samba on Lincoln Road… but I feel like there is so much more to explore here. I’d love to hear your recommendations, including favorite restaurants, attractions, etc. I’m sure those of you who know Miami will have some fun suggestions. Restaurants don’t need to be kosher… I have a kosher section on my site out of respect for my Jewish readers, but I do not keep kosher personally. Please share your favorite places in the comments section below!
Also, I will be stopping by the BlogHer Food closing night party next weekend to say hi, so if you’re a food blogger and you’re going, please let me know!
