Ode To Miami

Miami will forever have my heart for the simple fact that it is a beautiful international city with so much culture. I was born in Miami and will forever consider it home no matter where I move I will always miss it. 

           Breakfast: Green Street Cafe needs no introduction. A Miami staple, you'll find both tourists and locals enjoying the Coconut or Nutella French Toast. 

            Lunch: NIU. A friendly, family-owned Catalan style kitchen. Order the Ous, Tomato soup, Octopus, and Catch of the day (inquire for the Dorada fish)... trust me.

            Dinner: Swine. Although Miami is heavily influenced by the massive Latin American population, you can count on Swine for a classic yet innovative American meal. You must try the swine burger, or the French Onion Filet Mignon. Order a  side of cornbread, Mac & cheese, and or corn for a complete satisfying meal.

Honorable Mentions: Pubbely (Sushi), Coyo Taco, Lokal (Burgers), Upland, Hillstone, Fogo de chao, Via Emilia 9 (Pasta)

Going out: Wynwood is a cool sight seeing spot for cool art, South Beach has cool events late at night

Shopping: Bal Harbour is my favorite luxury shopping center with amazing gourmet restaurants, Merrick Park its beautiful and the restraunts are to die for, Lincoln Road is in the middle of South Beach with tons of stores and different types of food.  

Activity (must do) : Perez Art Museum, Wynwood Walls, Fairchild Tropical Gardens 

Must see: Calle Ocho is filled with vibrant Cuban culture
