  1. Haven't been to Galicia, but it looks like you are within a half day drive of Etxebarri, which means you absolutely must go. Have you guys been to San Sebastian yet? That's just a bit past Etxebarri and an amazingl place to visit and eat.
  2. Totally agree. Have enjoyed the Miami location many times and often wondered why we didn't have something like it closer to home.
  3. Primrose has "Wine Wednesday" now with 30% off bottles of wine. It was wonderfully quiet there tonight with folks either out of town or chasing restaurant week deals at other restaurants. I'm pretty sure the discounted bottle of Sancerre we had tonight was a better deal than 9 out of 10 Restaurant Week dinners. The brioche shrimp toast was pretty awesome too.
  4. Likewise. Only I still need to pay my final respects. Loved just about everything about Sally's. Mark, where will you guys go instead? I think we'll probably visit Sospeso and Maketto more often.
  5. Happy to take them off your hands, but my experience has been that I get better recommendations here than I do in guidebooks. Did you go? If so, please dish!
  6. Any recent reports from Buenos Aires or tips for Mendoza?
  7. We went last year and had a wonderful time. The food didn't wow me more than my many wonderful meals at Kinship have, but the ambiance and service were both special and memorable. Have a happy anniversary (and post after you go)!
  8. GAH! I can't believe I finally made a reservation at Corduroy only to learn you aren't there!
  9. And now that I've been, I hearty concur! Stubborn Seed might be my favorite of many very good to great restaurants in Miami. I not only think it's outstanding for Miami Beach, but would gladly return there and add it to our rotation if it were in D.C. Mark's sums it up well, the menu is interesting, but not large. They are more committed to the sharing concept than most and push the sending dishes when they are ready and not necessarily as courses, but I like that and am glad to have tried most of their menu last night. And the service was more precise and personal than I'm used to in Miami. If you're going to Miami Beach and looking for a delicious meal out, I highly recommend trying Stubborn Seed. And, if you're nearby at the southern tip of Miami Beach, Cibo wine bar is a nice place for a glass of wine. New to me, they have a happy hour of half-priced glasses of wine and cocktails prior to 7 pm.
  10. So I feared. I'll take this as a welcome excuse to return to Menomale again soon to further investigate.
  11. I've never been to Pupatella, but we continue to think Menomale has the best pizza in town and really anywhere we've ever been. My kids think so (and have been harassing us for having not been yet in 2019), my wife thinks so, and I think so. The Brooklandisima is amazing. @DonRocks, is there some reason to think Menomale is less than it was once or are you just wondering why there aren't more recent posts here?
  12. Mark, any more detail on Stubborn Seed? Your post is the first I've seen it, but wow sounds amazing! Also curious if you or anyone else here has been to Francis Mallman's Los Fuegos at the Faena. I was fascinated by him from his episode on Chef's Table, but haven't had an excuse to go yet.
  13. I've been here a couple times and really like it. The second time, we sat next to Common. It is striking driving through Skid Row to end up here. They have a wood fired grill as a well as wood fired oven, which are fun to watch and both producing good eats. I have fond memories of a lobster crostino on grilled bread and the pork tomahawk. They also have an interesting by the glass program, from which I particularly enjoyed an Erbaluce and Kali Kovek..
