As many friends and visitors to FOOdalogue know, I’ve attended this 7-year-old annual event in Delray Beach for the past 5 years — and each year, as soon as it ends, I start looking forward to the next.
One night, 1,100 people sitting down for dinner at 1,369 feet of table that stretches down the main street of Delray Beach (voted #1 fun town in America). This year 19 local restaurants participated, each creating a special 4-course menu (with welcome drink and wine pairings). They also compete for the best table decor. Continue Reading
Do you know the historic origins of your neighborhood and environs? It could be as fascinating as mine.
I took this tour 2 years ago and, happily, took it again when my friend Carole was visiting from Tampa. We were part of a group of about 20 who were informed, fed and entertained for 4 hours on this Taste Historic Culinary Tour.
16 restaurants … 1000 people … a mile-long dining table down the middle of an otherwise busy street … and another great evening! This was my 4th consecutive year attending Savor the Avenue — and I’m already looking forward to next year! Continue Reading
Walking into the Epicurean lobby one gets an immediate sense of the attention to detail that went into the development of this unique property that tickles the palate, literally and figuratively.

Miamians know. Art Basel devotees know. Wynwood, a formerly downtrodden, low income, somewhat industrial and small neighborhood bordering Midtown and the Design District, went through a gentrification over the past decade. Years ago, people drove through this area with their windows up and doors locked. Today, they flock in and walk around. It’s a destination, a hot spot for foodies and lovers of art.
Enter Miami Culinary Tours. As you may recall, I’ve written about their Little Havana and South Beach tours, both of which are thoroughly enjoyable, so I was thrilled when they recently announced a new culinary tour of Wynwood. It’s a wonderful way for locals and visitors alike to become acquainted with the area and try a multitude of restaurants. Continue Reading
I know. This is so un-FOODalogue-like.
But, remember Our Family Food Fight (see sidebar photo)? It had a brief revival Saturday night when my niece suggested a ‘mac n’ cheese’ throw down. Continue Reading
South Beach is figuratively much larger than its size. In fact, it’s geographically small — occupying the southern most point of Miami Beach — but it’s huge in the diversity of its people, architecture, and culture! Continue Reading
