I love Miami. I could never live there permanently but I’m down to visit on the reg. I believe it’s the closest experience I’ll have to being a twenty-something in the 80’s. I also believe it’s the only place I can wear a white jumpsuit and not feel like I’m casting for an episode of Miami vice. Or maybe that’s exactly what I feel like, and that’s why I love it. At any rate, whenever I find myself in this beautiful city of white marble and platform shoes I seem to have a better than average time, and always come back a deep shade of mahogany.
This trip I stayed at The Miami Beach Edition Hotel in South Beach. Great hotel. The Matador Room, which is the hotel’s main restaurant, is one of my favourite places to eat in Miami. I eat here even when I’m not staying at the hotel. If you go, sit outside and order the Tartar and the Chicken Tacos. Do not order the Mezcal cocktail that comes with a flower in it. It tastes like what I imagine licking an old leather handbag would be like. That’s my only complaint.
My other favourite restaurant in Miami, which I have zero complaints about, is Seaspice. Order the Coconut Salmon Ceviche, the best I’ve ever had. Also, if you are fortunate enough to own a boat, or you are wise enough to befriend someone who does, you can dock it right alongside the restaurant. They also have really cute waiters.
Until next time Miami x
