What local restaurants or businesses do you recommend?My favorite Mexican place – anywhere I’ve ever been! It’s down in Florida City, across from the Cracker Barrel. It’s a taco stand called Rosita’s. It’s the best Mexican, hands down, you will ever eat. There are only a few things on the menu. I just point to order and you can’t go wrong. I also love the Asian Thai Kitchen inside the Quickie Mart on Grand Avenue in the Grove. $11 for Pad Thai – no question. So good.
What local restaurants or businesses do you recommend?I really like Stubborn Seed, south of fifth. I like Lilikoi, also south of fifth. Everything's organic, I really appreciate that. We do like to try new restaurants. My husband used to have a restaurant, so he loves going out to dinner and trying new things and he's in real estate and brokers restaurant and retail deals. He's always in the know and has to check out new places that pop up. I'm usually his sidekick. Also, Plant Food and Wine at the Sacred Space- I Love, love, love what they're doing over there.
What local restaurants or businesses do you recommend?Some of our favorite haunts – Green Gables Café on Alhambra. They are open for lunch and have a diversified menu. There’s never a bad dish – I usually get one of the specials. Café Vialetto – off of Bird and Le June – The chef/owner is the most endearing, loving man and makes you feel like you’re at your brother’s house. Normally we get the pasta of the day – which he makes fresh. He makes great salads. I’ll order without opening the menu just by talking with him about what I am in the mood for. Izakaya for Japanese, and Blue Collar for old fashion comfort food -they have a great veggie plate.
What local restaurants or businesses do you recommend?Truthfully, we don't like going to restaurants. I like the farmer's market because I like supporting local farmers and buying fruits and vegetables to cook with during the week. We make a lot of vegetables, salads, and greens. My husband and Hannah are also bread bakers.
What local restaurants or businesses do you recommend?My favorite restaurant was a Vietnamese place called Hy Vong. Unfortunately, they closed. They do some popups now and at some farmer’s markets. We go to places nearby - Whisk, Titanic and Matsuri.
What local restaurants or businesses do you recommend?We are still not venturing out too much. We've been ordering Peruvian food. Aromas del Peru Roma is great. Sometimes we order from Pummarola in the Falls. One of our favorites that we used to go to, but can still get delivery is Shaddai the Lebanese family restaurant. They are really great people.
What local restaurants or businesses do you recommend?With kids we cook a lot. Sage has been a place that we frequent - either their special of the day or their veggie burgers are good. It's kind of a no-frills place, but the food kind of speaks for itself. Also, Daily Bread is a go-to for us.
What local restaurants or businesses do you recommend?We went to Babes Meat and Counter. I was reading their story in your newsletter. We've also been to Ayesha's Indian restaurant on US1. We've been to Tani Thai and Rumi - their hummus is fabulous. We also go to Sushi Rock. And, my wife cooks a lot in the house, so we're going to Whole Foods and Fresh Market.
