MIAMI is the "MAGIC CITY"

Miami is my 2nd home. It's popular with tourists for its sun and fun latin vibe but it can also be very fickle, prickly and as fake as those breast implants you'll see everywhere. In Miami, more than most places, knowing where to go will shape your experience. Trust me OK? ;-)

contrary to popular belief (and what you see on the beach) people in Miami do love their carbs, they eat it with reckless abandon, they just spend more time in the gym is all... If you are gonna blow out on a pizza, Harry's is IMHO the best place...

Pool + Beach service is ace, they have a great team here. The hotel is pretty large but manageable and I really like the style. Lots of cool amenities to make you feel good about staying here ( organic toiletries, fancy bedding, high end goodies...

Freehand Miami bills itself as “a hostel for a new generation of travelers.” Indeed, a visit here confirms that it’s very far from the stereotypical dingy hostel. In fact, were it not for the shared rooms, the Freehand would...

I hate shopping. There, I said it. However, sometimes while traveling you need a few things right? So, to minimize my pain, I like to go to places that know what I need and what I like. BABALU is one such place. It's tiny, it's unisex, it's chic,...

I would never have guessed it but fried chicken and waffles (and biscuits) have taken over South Beach. Yes the land of the beautiful and thin people indeed like to get their fingers (and stomachs) dirty at this off the beaten track, yet still...

This upscale, all day "diner" may be slightly hidden in the lobby of the W Hotel, however this Miami outpost of the popular NYC restaurant is a great place to grab a bite either pre or post beach. I've had breakfast, lunch and dinner here. The...

I hope pastry chef, Hedy Goldsmith, includes this brilliant tangerine pot de creme in her upcoming cookbook. It is so delicious and the perfect size should you feel guilty about ordering dessert.

Wynwood, Miami, FL, USA
One of the main reasons I love Miami is Wynwood District. The area is an ever-changing canvas of graffiti and social commentary. What was new yesterday may already have been re-purposed/-tagged/-painted today.

The Standard Spa, Miami Beach is an adult playground for the stressed. Its hotel, bar, restaurant, and world-famous spa are all designed for relaxation. For starters, it’s located about a mile from the beach. So while you still get the Miami...

can't afford the Delano? (don't worry - neither can I) this budget option located 1 block from the beach is a great bet. Stark all white rooms, firm beds, rainfall showers, continental breakfast and young sexy clientele make the Townhouse my Miami...

An out-of-the-way location (you need a taxi to get here from Ocean Drive or Collins Ave), but still in South Beach means that you will encounter just as many locals as tourists (if not more of the former) at this "sushi-pub." And that is a good...

Joe's is as Historic as Miami Beach gets (they are celebrating their 100th anniversary in 2012). Open only in "season" - any seafood lover cannot miss the sweet, sweet stone crab meat on offer here. MY TIP is to skip the restaurant and go to the...

Miami is the land of Cuban coffee and frankly, just between you and me, it's not very good. A few years ago a talented, Portland-born coffee roaster was convinced by his lovely Miami-born wife to open a third-wave espresso bar and cafe in Miami's...

is recovering quite well from her little nip/tuck (sorry - refresh). Often copied (all white rooms) but never duplicated, the Delano has retained her role as the reigning queen of South Beach "see and be seen" hotels. Even after all these years,...

Lincoln Road is a pedestrians-only boulevard in the heart of South Beach and one of the most popular places to visit in the area. Lined with shops and restaurants in historic Art Deco buildings and shaded by tall trees and...
