…. Can I Vacation Longer, Please?

In Uncategorized on December 31, 2008 at 8:22 pm

I must admit, Miami has impressed me overall in regards to food. From simple lunch dishes such as Olive Oil, Lemon Juice, Sea Salt, and Roasted Snapper served at the Lido Deck, to Duck Confit with Cauliflower Mash, Wilted greens, and Pear Raisin Chutney sauce at Michael’s Genuine, I have loved every minute of eating in Miami….

For my parent’s 22nd anniversary on Monday night, we went to Azul, located in the beautiful Mandarin Oriental. It was out of this world to say the least. Ranked 2nd best restaurant in Miami, this posh spot really lived up to it’s reputation.

Some appetizers we enjoyed included New England Clam Chowder “REVISITED,” Crispy Clams, Confit Pork Belly, Malt Vinegar and  Peruvian Style Ceviche, Avocado Salad, and Tostones.

For entrees, we all loved our dishes. I had Seared Jumbo Sea Scallops, Curried Lentils, Carrot Citrus Glaze, Bacon, Pistachios. Everyone else ordered the Grilled Beef Tenderloin, Truffled Lobster Mac N’ Cheese, Shallot Glaze, Broccolini.

If you are in the area, I’d suggest you splurge on this wonderful restaurant.
