Brunch Everyday at Morgan's in Midtown
Tell me you named your restaurant after your oldest daughter (Morgan), who beat out her siblings in an epic battle of rocks, paper, scissors (five times to be exact) and you’ve got my attention. Tell me you serve brunch every day and you have my heart! It’s no secret, I love brunch. What was once served in my mother’s dining room every Sunday (the best bagel, lox and whitefish...

A Tipsy Travel Through Time
Club vs. bar? The age old question that people ask to determine the type of person they are conversing with. If you say “club” you may be perceived as young (pretending to be young) even sceney or high maintenance answer “bar” and you’re chill, laid back, down to earth, “real”. What it all comes down to is that these two very broad categories no longer encompass the wide variety of establishments...

TERRIBLE Toscana Divino!
Summer is over (for you Northerners) and my latest restaurant review is out. Keep up for where and where NOT to eat when you come to Miami! This will be a very short review as we did not even taste the water at Toscana Divino, located in Mary Brickell Village. I have tailored my New York impatience to accommodate the low service standards of Miami’s restaurants. In a city as fast paced...

A Slice of New York - Primo Pizza Miami
It’s hard to please New Yorkers when it comes to pizza. Even in New York there is the ongoing debate as to who has the best slice. In South Beach that debate is limited due to the lack of options and there’s the general consensus that there is, in fact, no good pizza outside of the five boroughs. Some may argue that Pizza Rustica is decent after a few cocktails at your favorite...

Dive in Movie at The Standard, Miami

I’m proud to be friends with a...
It’s May!! The sun is shining, the clothes are shrinking and it’s time for you to get out of town! It’s not always easy to just jump on a plane and get to that dream destination, but why not trade in those tickets for keys and three (or more) of your closest friends?? Trust me the stories that come from road trips will never be forgotten! Road-tripping is practically an American...
jetsetterdotcom: It’s five o’clock somewhere — in fact, in Fiji (where you’ll find Wakaya Club and Spa’s private beach, pictured here) it’s already Saturday. To ease us into the weekend, we’re dreaming of cocktails on the beach and tapped Wakaya Club’s owner, founder of Fiji Water David Gilmour, for his sunshine tipple of choice: “I love to order at vodka tonic with half a teaspoon of Wakaya...
