We just went to Peacock Garden in Coconut Grove. That was really good. Laura loved it. We went to Bakan in Wynwood, I enjoyed that. We always like Steve's Pizza. I'm kind of a pizza snob being from New York. That's the closest we've come to finding good New York pizza.

My daughter has an egg allergy, so that dictates a lot of our food choices. We found this place that's completely vegan call Aguacate, just south of Bird road and West of Kendall Regional. It's definitely worth checking out. They have like a coffee and tea bar, and smoothies and bowls. Everything is completely plant based. They won't even take honey from the bees there.

There's a Mexican restaurant in Florida City, called Taqueria Morelia. It's literally connected to a gas station and it's the best Mexican food that I've had ever in my life. Every time I've gone it's been nothing but exceptional. I really enjoy the tacos. Coyo Taco is really cool because it's a restaurant in front, but in the back they have like a hidden club. One of my good friends spins every weekend and they throw a really good party. It's called Lovers and Friends and it's really nice. Also, there's a nice little bar called Gramps.

Palacio de Los Jugos is fire. They have an amazing juice selection. I like their guava and pineapple juices. Also Roots. I've had smoothie bowls in so many places, and I want to taste pure fruit. I don't want anything else in it. Roots has a nice pure smoothie bowl, with different fruits in them. They have a lot of vegan options too. I don't go far to many places, that's why I'm so thankful LNB is close.

I like Atchana Thai, on Grand and Commodore Place. Also, Moon Thai - I've eaten there for 15 years. There's a sushi place on the east side of US1, south of Le June called Sakura. It's very good. I have pretty much gone plant based. I eat at the Coconut Grove Sailing Club, where I'm a member, and they actually make vegetarian sandwiches.

We eat out a lot. My daughter has declared herself a foodie.  We like exposing her to as many flavors as possible and we don’t subscribe to the idea of taking her to restaurants that cater to children. We really want her to eat what we eat. We like the St Roche Market because you don't have to eat at the same place every time and they've got that great bar in the middle and there's a lot of healthy options. We like Seasons 52 in the Gables, Matsuri on Bird Road and Dragonfly in Doral. For a date night, my husband and I really like Byblos and Planta on the Beach - the creativity that goes into their Vegan menu is incredible.

My kids love Sports Grill. It's right down the street from our house. I loved Scotty's, before it left us. I like something with a water view outside with a breeze where you can get a good fish sandwich. While you don't quite have the view, I like the patio at the Spillover, and they have music on the weekends. We'll usually go to River Oyster bar. It's kind of a go-back to our old days of being single and no kids. And if it's a nice weather night, we like going to Mandolin.

Right now, my favorite restaurant and the only restaurant we've been going to right now, is La Natural. They have a sourdough made with a really old starter and they make amazing pizza. When I first started going, they had this grilled pineapple, and it was so good. It was seasonal, but now they have these mushrooms with green sauce. My husband and I are both very particular about food and there's certain places where it might taste good, but you don't feel good afterwards, so you don't end up going back. But I feel great after I eat at La Natural. There's another little place that I really love that my husband has been going to since he was a teenager, called Tarragon Middle East Market. It's owned by two Lebanese brothers who are twins and they're just so kind and so nice. The dates they sell are like no other date I have ever tasted in my life. They just melt in your mouth. All their food is really good.

People always ask us and it's a tough one. Boia De for sure. It's such a memorable experience because they actually care. The servers take time to know you and they're not trying to just pump you through. That was the last restaurant we ate at. We like getting takeout from Lobster Shack, south of fifth. One of our perfect afternoons is getting lobster roll takeouts, bringing a bottle of wine, and going to sit in the park with the kids. And, Michael's Genuine is always a crowd pleaser for us.
