As the holiday’s loom closer on the horizon and we try to strategize as to how we will make it to Friday without throwing the computer out the window, you begin to notice the little things. Today, for me and my co-worker/deskbunny (long story) Bridget, that little thing was an awesome and inexpensive lunch at a burger joint called Shake Shack. Shake Shack has location in 5 states (NY, CT, FL, DC, & PA) and apparently also has some location in the Middle East. Random? Anyways, if you find a location close by, I highly recommend stopping for a burger.
Otentic Fresh Food Restaurant in Miami Beach, FL reminds me of my days in Paris… sitting with friends in little bistros sipping on good wine and enjoying each others company, all while eating the most amazing food ever. To me, Otentic is perfection: Paris in Miami. One of Otentic’s defining characteristics is its’ affordable prices. While you may be tempted to order too many things off the menu which will drive up your bill, the individual prices for each dish are extremely affordable for good quality food on Miami Beach.
Oh, how to explain the Turtle Café… well let me start by saying the food is simply spectacular. Chef Ricky Sharma creates quality dishes ranging from the all-american breakfast to decadent lobster crêpes (photographed above) which were packed full of lobster meat, goat cheese, spinach then topped with a cream sauce. What you really need to know is that while the restaurant’s location may be unassuming, it is worth a try if you are in the shoreline area of Connecticut. You can thank me later.
