We like Miss Saigon Bistro –  The rice noodle bowls are great. Also, Joanna’s Market – I strongly recommend the latte, sandwiches and bagels. And, Chocolate Fashion on Sunset – it’s a coffee place. They have a tremendous breakfast. The omelet with vegetables is out of the park! My wife likes Spanish food. Sometimes we go to Rincon Espanol. Also, Two Chefs is excellent quality and underrated.

There's nothing my boys don't eat. Give them salmon, octopus, crab, steak, short rib, 20 different vegetables, they are fantastic eaters. Every night it's all about protein and vegetables and healthy fruit for dessert. For restaurants, my favorite is Matsuri. We also love Ghee. During lunch, I always get the special.

Right now, we're on our way to meet some friends at Timeout Market in Miami Beach. Martina is vegan, so we try to find vegan places. We like the Mexican place in Wynwood, Bakan. If we're on South Beach, I go to the cafeteria at Joe's and get some stone crabs, just to take advantage of the local seafood here. William likes Harry's in the Grove.

That's tricky. I have a lot of friends in the industry. I like going to dives as much as I do fine dining. Right around here, Keg South is pretty up there...it's between the wings and the burgers. I think their wings are fried and then tossed with their hot sauce and thrown on the grill. Sometimes - the dirtier the dive, the better the food. I recently found this place Lung Yai Thai tapas. It's on eighth street. When you sit down, you order and then you can't order anything else, they will not allow you. So, it's a conundrum to order too much or not order enough. It's one of my favorite places right now.

I keep a list of restaurants on my phone that I try to constantly update - so when we've got a free night and ask where we want to go - we can take it out. The Downtown Dadeland area has been really impressive lately. Our favorite restaurant in Miami is probably Whisk - their spicy seared beef with coconut rice and spinach blends together in this perfect balance. Second place is called The Fish House. It's on Miller road, way out west. It's like a hole in the wall kind of place. They have a grilled octopus dish that is far better than any grilled octopus I've ever had at the fanciest restaurants around.

We enjoy a lot of them. Recently, we went to Balloo. I really love Caribbean food and they're doing it so cool. It's real small and they don't take reservations, but the food is top-notch and exciting. They had big a pickled slab of chayote squash with this delicious sweet and spicy chutney. I'm fascinated by and have always wanted to grow chayote. I like to see it on a menu sort of showcased like that. We always make our way out to 27 and Mandolin is always one of our favorites. Boia De is really nice, that's sort of near us. Then there are a couple Mexican places down in Homestead that are good. They're almost all in gas stations. 5 Hermanos on 272 and Krome. It's a food truck at a gas station with a couple of tents.

There is a little place called Java and Juice on 151st and Biscayne. We don't go out much now, but we like the energy there. I know the guy who owns the restaurant and he's a very conscious person. It's really a little hole in the wall, but we like it.
