As we continue to take advantage of Miami Spice, we had a chance to visit Michy’s Restaurant.  Located in the slowly renovated Biscayne Boulevard, which little by little is offering the public, a great selection of fine dining.

Friday night came and we waited to be seated, as Michy’s was packed and rolling!  We took this chance to check out Michy’s unique décor and first thing that came to my mind was, vintage 80’s.  Color selection, wall mirrors and furniture, and honestly we were kind of worried that we had made the wrong decision.  Is good for once in a while to admit you are wrong.  We had a lovely dinner in the outside patio and from start to finish we were amazed. Starting with a great selection of Cava, we moved to our first course, which included a surprisingly delicious Chilled Corn and Crab Soup. Oh My, Oh My! Then we followed with the Salmon Poached in Lemon Olive Oil.  Perfect combination of a lemony and herb taste with Farro (a food product consisting of grains of certain wheat species) and summer vegetables.  Very nice and smooth dish.  And to end, we tried the Plum Cake with pecan crème Fraiche.  Can’t complain, great night and belly full.

What a Lovely Dinner

Lido Restaurant is located in Miami Beach at The Standard Hotel. Two words describe Lido’s food: healthy and yummy.  It’s the perfect clash between delicious and wholesome natural food.  Executive Chef Mark Zeitouni has provided an extra hint of care and emphasis into every single dish as they all share high quality organic meats/fish, unprocessed foods and biodynamic wines.  The Mediterranean culture flourishes all through the restaurant as its typical cooking philosophy and décor swiftly makes its presence.  The Greeks and Turks would simply feel cheated!

During my lovely visit I tried the “Living Lasagna” Raw Vegetable Terrine.  I would never try anything that had the words “Living” and “Raw” in the same sentence, but good think I did. Delicious.  Highly recommended and we are pretty sure you will agree.

Ceviche 105

If you want to experience an explosion of taste, we recommend that you take a walk downtown and into the fashionable boutique restaurant Ceviche 105.  Great taste, great location and great atmosphere to spend a nice and cozy night with a couple of friends. And taking our very own advice, that is exactly what we did.

Unknown words like Pucusana, pisco, tiradito, caucau and others, will simply stayed unidentified and mysterious to us as the Incas; but meanwhile, your taste buds will enjoy the mystifying flavors of some provocative dishes.  Ceviche 105 opened its doors in September 2008 and its kitchen is overruled by the impeccable aesthetics of both Chef Luis Hoyos and Chef Juan Chipoco, who project passion in every dish they create. We definitely give Ceviche 105, two sizzling thumbs up!
