Spent a few days in South Beach..first lunch at Joe's Stone Crab..always good..great meal at China Grill..had a Szechuan Steak that was very similar to the dish at Wolfgang Puck's Chinois on Main...fun, lively bar scene...couple of pork sandwiches at Dave's on Collins..always a favorite..few slices at Rustica Pizza..agree with Iron Frank's comments below..Sat night we had dinner at the Blue Boor at the Delano Hotel..I have been to the Delano bar many times but only eaten there a few times..a few years ago. The food was great but the restaurant is very expensive..most apps..$20+, most entrees...$40+...glad I went, but probably won't hurry back..:) Restaurant I would highly recommend is Nemo's. On Sunday night, we were too hungry, planned on a few appetizers..in addition to the bar, they also have 4 stools at a counter overlooking the kitchen..we ordered a duck confit and shrimp fried in a phyllo dough over a salsa..before they arrived..the waiter brought us a big platter of smoked salmon sushi and shrimp cocktails..just as a "gift." Everything was great..and it's unusual to find a "trendy" restaurant that actually treats the guests so well...no attitude...Do other's feel that way or do I just look like a "friend of the chef's (they have offered me extra dishes on other occassions)? Final question of the evening was, "what time do you open for lunch?" some stone crab, tamarind duck sandwich with fontina on a brioche roll and spicy Indian pork loin...all great..as usual.
