So JG asked me where I wanted to go to dinner tonight. Our time here in Miami is so limited that we have to be super selective about where to water our taste buds. I didn’t hesitate with my answer though – the Dining Room. It’s been a favorite of ours since it opened about a year and 4 months ago. The owner is an incredible guy and the food is ah.maz.ing! The branzino fish is a large portion and well cooked and the cashew brussel sprouts are a personal favorite. You can’t go wrong. The service is always top-notch and the wait staff have been there since the place opened, which is unusual for Miami Beach where the transient cruise ship culture can breed a real f*you attitude when it comes to good service. Oh, and my personal favorite – the baked Patagonia for dessert. I am a chocolate lover through and through. Chocolate brownies, ice cream, cookies, it really doesn’t matter as long as it has chocolate. But the baked Patagonia has zero chocolate. I fought JG the first time she wanted to order it – passion fruit sauce, pistachio cake and toasted marshmallow, no way! But OMG have I ever been grateful to her ever since for sticking to her guns. And I can almost say it out loud – the baked Patagonia is my favorite.dessert.ever.
