Where I Go Out

At My Venues

The beet
$$$$, Modern, Full Bar, New American, South Beach
"Hung in the fireplace, this is the absolutely the best vegetarian dish I have ever had in a restaurant. Complex in its simplicity. So good."
Caneles
$$$$, Modern, Full Bar, New American, South Beach
"Obviously, this is not something most of us get to eat very often. In fact, I've only had them once. But the memory of them inspires me to keep eating the many inferior ones around the city, none of which compare. By now the memory must be much greater than the actual caneles, since I've built it up so much in my head, but my best recollection is that these were PERFECT. Warm, slightly gooey center. Just the right amount of sweetness. Nice caramelization and chew on the exterior. Perfect."
