Miami is to me...
I'm a single, 40 year old "Smart in the City" female living in Brickell area of downtown Miami. A marketing professional, I hold a master's degree and enjoy reading books, going to the beach, exercising at gym, and playing with my pets to ensure they exercise and remain healthy. I love Miami and exploring new hot spots, hidden treasures, well-kept secrets, and new restaurants. I believe in always giving back and volunteer work is always a part of my life. In moving to downtown I discovered th...
Tapas & Tinto, Berries in Coconut Grove, Le Boudoir, Perricones in Mary Brickell Village. And for a quick, healthy bite with great value--always Pollo Tropical.
Blue Martini, Segafredo's in Brickell
South Beach of course! Between 2nd and 5th street!
Vizcaya--I love the grounds, the history, the elegance and the events. From wine and food tastings to Halloween, Vizcaya marries young history with youthful energy for adults of all ages. It's my fountain of youth!
Miami Metrozoo, Miami Seaquarium are the anchors of Miami attractions and the amazing land and aquatic animals. I recommend everyone visit these attractions at least once a year. There's always something new and educational. THE BEST --Flying an airplane-- at www.miamifly.com
Miami Heat, Miami Dolphins
Merrick Park for shopping and dining and I can bring my little girl--a Maltese dog.

Posted on Thu, 02.17.2011 @ 00:14Mercadito blends true native Mexican cuisine with a modern flair. Creative dishes and authentic delicacies are offered in an indoor/outdoor setting, with a separate taqueria for takeout and delivery. Food was good but highly overpriced. Why? Because of celebrity customers like Shakira and Jessica Simpson. This is not a moderately priced restaurant like neighboring ones.

Posted on Mon, 08.02.2010 @ 23:08While I have read mixed reviews about this restaurant I see the chef has taken feedback to heart and continuously worked on improvements. Overall I enjoyed the ambiance, food, and service. The ceviche was probably the least memorable but satisfactory.

Posted on Thu, 07.22.2010 @ 11:28Crowds come to this restaurant first and foremost for the ambience (the decor is stunning) and the people watching. The food is delicious but very pricey and definitely NOT plentiful. This is for young crowd and not mature crowd because the acoustics is LOUD. To ensure the restaurant profits, at bottom of menu in fine print "minimum is $25 per person".

Posted on Thu, 07.22.2010 @ 11:20Loved it! I felt transported to Paris. Salad was delicious and pastries divine. Except the macarons (NOT macaroons) are very sweet. One is enough.

Posted on Tue, 06.15.2010 @ 17:04On Memorial Day weekend I treated myself to a Day Spa and it was fabulous. While I live in downtown and often go to South Beach, Canyon Ranch is nestled in upper Miami Beach and I felt I was another world away. The package is little pricey but the luxurious surroundings, and exceptional service, and classes are worth it. I strongly recommend taking a few exercise classes and using the gym to make the most of it. My package only included one "treatment" so I chose a massage to destress...To read my complete review and see pictures visit http://www.myfabulousflorida.com/2010/06/canyon-ranch-resort.html ...

Posted on Fri, 06.04.2010 @ 00:18One of the best authentic, hole-in-the-wall restaurants in South Beach. Food is more than $10 a plate but still reasonable. For pictures and my complete review visit www.myfabulousflorida.com and check left column for Restaurant Reviews-- Tap Tap... Read more
Posted on Fri, 03.26.2010 @ 17:17This was my first time and overall I enjoyed it.

Posted on Tue, 11.03.2009 @ 13:58Don't you love pleasant surprises--especially when it comes to food? This charming-on-the-outside, hip-decor-on inside restaurant offered fantastic creations. The average dinner entree was $27. Not bad for this gem in downtown Ft.Lauderdale. ... Read more
Posted on Wed, 07.08.2009 @ 16:31I finally visited this restaurant in June 2009 since it opened November 2008 and I actually gave it the first "well kept secret" designation based on the service. I hope it wasn't presumptuous considering it was one visit. Go to www.myfabulousflorida.com (check rightside menu bar for "Restaurant reviews") for my complete review. Salute!... Read more
Posted on Fri, 06.19.2009 @ 23:47I had a small chance to sample this restaurant's appetizers and one drink. The decor and ambience are appealing and this Coral Gables restaurant attracts an older 30- year old + crowd. This is great. For pictures and my review visit http://www.myfabulousflorida.com...

Posted on Mon, 12.08.2008 @ 23:10Check me out, Miami.com! I'm a huge fan of Monopoly board game. I have played since I was a little girl beating a Thanksgiving table full of adults at age 10. I would love to win the new Monopoly Miami in time for Christmas. Board games is what kept our family laughing and together. It brings wonderful memories. Ready to make new memories!!! ... Read more
Posted on Mon, 12.08.2008 @ 22:27I recently had a business lunch here with seven other colleagues. First the decor gets high marks--modern and clean. Now for the food. If you eat oysters, then Oceanaire is your destination. Different types of oysters (the names I can't even recall (i'm not an oyster connosseur), were attractively arranged on a ice tray. My coworkers devoured it. I on the other hand had the shrimp cocktail--average. The sour dough bread was also another comfort food that received high marks. The main course, I ordered the Pumpkin Swordfish. A fan of swordfish, I was disillusioned. There was no seasonal pumpkin to accentuate the fish. "Pumpkin" referred to the dirty orange-colored carmelized onions. A disappointment. I've had better fish at less expensive restaurants. Not worth the price. What did receive rave reviews were the Bloody Mary's. Served in a tall hourglass shaped glass, the rim is frosted with what appears to be salt and Old Bay Seasoning--the secret ingredient. Onto desserts--the chocolate rum cake and bread pudding were more than decadent--they were sinful. I loved every morsel! Finally the service met our expectations--not surprising given the high powered individuals at the table. Skip the entrees. Fill up with Bloody Mary's, oysters and desserts at the Oceanaire. ...

Great food, loud music after 10pm--this is not the place to bring your grandparents hence they lose their hearing. ... Read more
Posted on Sun, 11.30.2008 @ 23:57For the most part I agree with Rene's review, but I was not rushed for the next Bond. A big fan of true love and James Bond, I engrossed myself in his grief and mission. Patience allowed me to appreciate the movie more than most. Although there were a couple of other disappointments.
