    S1 E3 Michelin Guide Miami: Perspective and Predictions

    S1 E3 Michelin Guide Miami: Perspective and Predictions

    In this third episode, I discuss the Michelin Guide's upcoming arrival to Miami.

    Listen in as I take a very close look at the TOP 15 THINGS TO KNOW about the guide in general and Miami as a food town. What is our emerging style? What will this mean for South Florida? What are some of the most misunderstood statements made about the guide? Who should and shouldn't be awarded a star? Do we have any restaurants that would qualify for a three-star rating?

    To conclude, I also share my predictions about which restaurants I think could be included in the Magic City's inaugural guide based on my past Michelin dining experience in the U.S.

    This episode has it all: facts, chisme, cheers, and rants. Surprised?

    S1 E2 Top 21 Miami Restaurants of 2021: Palette Awards

    S1 E2 Top 21 Miami Restaurants of 2021: Palette Awards

    Learn about the detailed process that goes into choosing my Top 21 Miami Restaurants.

    I reserved, ordered, photographed, and ate at all of these spots. No one asked nor paid me to do so. Supporting our local restaurants brings me joy, and I am passionate about South Florida's food scene. A lot of careful thought went into the naming and placement of each honoree.

    These are the ones you visit to sit for dinner. Read that again. SIT. FOR. DINNER. Not “grab a bite,” “order a few things,” “stop in,” or just “enjoy some cocktails.” You can enjoy food nirvana at any of the Top 21. Arrive early for a cocktail, choose a bottle of wine or appropriate pairing, start with some appetizers, order your entree, dessert, after-dinner drink, and maybe also a cafecito. Perhaps enjoy a tasting menu instead. Enjoy the ambiance, celebrate something, or interact with friends and staff. Receive the kind of service you don’t have to think about because it just is. Get the picture? Dinner as a leisurely experience and not an afterthought or just a selfie op.

    Ready, set, dale!
