But when I wasn't catching some rays*, I was enjoying the fantastic food and nightlife of Miami Beach. As per my usual restaurant pics, the light quality is somewhat lacking, but here is an assortment of some of the great meals I enjoyed during my 48 hour stay.
*Applying SPF 50 every 15 minutes while I lounged in a long-sleeved white cotton cover-up and a giant straw hat.
Lunch poolside - delish barley veggie burger.
Sadly, the fruit cup included mango, which I can't eat.
The "Lychee Lite" - vodka, muddled lychee, white cranberry juice, mint, lime.
Edamame at Sushi Samba - sushi/Brazilian/Peruvian small plates fusion spot.
(And crazy flash lighting)
Miso-marinated Chilean sea bass with steamed veggies
Fun architecture break!
The LONG awaited pressed Cuban sandwich, with plantain chips
A little cafe con leche for the road
Garlic bread with amazing basil and olive oil dipping sauce
STK - steak house
A nice rose
The filet I shared
This whole group loved broccolini - we ordered two servings
My plate! Too dark to tell, but my glorious filet, green beans, broccolini and truffle-parmesan frites
Fantastic mini-donuts for the bachelorette
There was some fun sparkler action going on, but I didn't get a good picture
My plate, with some chocolate sauces.
And an action shot with the bachelorette.
Sunday brunch poolside - egg white frittata with asparagus, tomato, red onion and goat cheese with a side of home fries
And some lovely fresh fruit.
What an amazing and delicious weekend. :)
