The Huntsman Tallahassee recently opened. A number of folks from the Tallahassee Foodies group have recommended it. We had a great meal. The Huntsman is definitely one of Tallahassee's new "hot spots."
We decided we wanted to try someplace new for the holiday weekend. We were not in the mood for a heavy meal and decided we would try someplace that did "small" bites. We've had J's Asian Street Food on our list since just after it opened and decided to swing by.
My wife Teresa took me for an early Father's Day dinner at Il Lusso. It is an Italian steakhouse in downtown Tallahassee. We hadn't been there for a while and I was in the mood for a good steak.
One of the things we were missing from our time in Miami was a great tapas bar. We checked out the new Casa Tapas and Cantina here in Tallahassee last night and it was fabulous!
Teresa and i try to do a "date night" every month. For May, we had a couple of things to celebrate as well. My birthday was on May 2 and Mother's Day was May 8. So we decided to wrap all three together and do dinner at Sage Restaurant in Tallahassee.
We revisited Kool Beanz Cafe for our April date night." We ordered several of their"starters" so we could explore the menu and enjoyed one of their award-winning desserts. This Tallahassee favorite has become one of ours as well.
My wife Teresa and I made our second visit to Growler Country here in Tallahassee last week. We had seen their Cuban sandwich on the menu on our first visit and promised ourselves that we would be back to check it out. It exceeded our expectations.
We did a second "date night" on our recent trip to Miami. We went to Luca Osteria and Bar which is located on Giralda Ave in Coral Gables. We enjoyed the meal, the service, and the ambiance. All in all, a great "wrap" for our trip down to Miami.
We made a second visit to Zitz Sum in Coral Gables, a contemporary Asian-inspired hybrid between Dim Sum & Izakaya that specializes in dumplings and small plates. They hit a home run again!
Visited Growler Country for an impromptu date night on Saturday. Teresa had seen a post about this local craft beer pub on the Tallahassee Foodies Facebook group recently. Definitely worth a visit!
Down in Miami this week. We hadn't made any dinner plans Tuesday night and walked around downtown Coral Gables to see what appealed to us. We decided to check out the Cebada Rooftop Restaurant and Raw Bar.
Teresa and I celebrated our eleventh wedding anniversary this past Saturday. I had booked us a table at one of our local favorites, Mimi's Table. Just a quick post to thank everyone who made it such a special night for us.
