An Interesting New Restaurant In Coral Gables

Simply Miami Real Estate

We are always on the look out for good restaurants to visit and, yesterday we found one called the Gourmet Table at 4555 Ponce de Leon Blvd. in Coral Gables ( basically across Ponce from the old driver's license building). I have to admit that I was impressed by the food, the staff, and the decor, but I am concerned the cost may be a little stiff for normal work time lunches. The owner, who is Dutch, told me that...Continue Reading!

Breakfast In South Miami

Simply Miami Real Estate

Absolutely and unequivocally the best way to start your day is at Le Royal in the Blue Mall on Red Road across from the Chevron station in Downtown South Miami. They have croissants unequaled by anyone else and when  followed with a cafe au lait you are ready to start a Miami day... The food is the best part, but every morning it is like a mini "Cheers" bar with local business owners, moms, and neighbors filling the store. Plus...Continue Reading!

My Quest To Find The Best Seafood Restaurant – Captains Tavern

Simply Miami Real Estate

I am on my own personal journey to find what I think is the best seafood restaurant in Miami or the Keys.

Last Friday I started my trip at the venerable Captains Tavern just south of Dadeland on South Dixie Highway. As you can see from the picture this is a restaurant that can't sell atmosphere  and must...Continue Reading!

Coral Gables Art Cinema

One of the great reasons for living in Miami is that there is something interesting to do every day ( actually there is a lot more than one interesting thing to do). You just sort of have to pick and chose. In the downtown section of the North Gables lies the Coral Gables Art Cinema at 260 Aragon Ave. ( right across the street  from another favorite of mine, Books & Books). I guess you can say that alternative movies...Continue Reading!

Trattoria Sole…A Great South Miami Restaurant

Simply Miami Real Estate

Last night my wife and I tried out Trattoria Sole at 5894 Sunset Drive in South Miami which is under new ownership. We had been fans for years of this restaurant which began the restaurant renaissance in Downtown South Miami. I am glad to say that even though former owner Mauricio has gone back to Italy the new owners have maintained the quality and ambiance of Trattoria Sole. We will continue to be fans and hope that you will be...Continue Reading!
