The place is so-glam! Of course, a lot of celebs already had dinner here! Paris Hilton, Bill Clinton, The Kardashians, Kanye West, basketball players like Lebron James, Cameron Diaz and it´s Gisele’s fav restaurant when she goes to Miami! When I visit last year, I saw Christiano Ronaldo, Anna Wintour and Federer!
The food… hum! It’s a steakhouse, but also vegetarians can have a great dinner too with a lot of seafood options.

The best days are Tuesday and Wednesday when is not so crowded. Saturday is the worst day, a LOT of people trying to get in!
Every friday I post a restaurant, bar, lounge or a cool place to go…anywhere in world!
The city that I chose for today is… NEW YORK!
I love NYC! Glam, modern and edgy!
230 5th Ave, New York, NY 10001, Estados Unidos
Located on the heart of Manhattan on the glam 5th Ave, the rooftop lounge 230 Fifth have one of the best skyline view!
The building is actually a hotel and on the top a giant rooftop with 4 ambients. My last time there was in 2013 and was summer time so was an amazing weather, but when is winter it is possible to rent a sky coat to feel safe and warm without freezing!
I love NYC and this view directly to Empire State made me love even more this lounge.
The menu don´t have too many options, but is how a lounge bar should be. Some few and amazing shared plates and entrees like salads and tacos. I tried some drinks and was all awesome!
Hand Cut French Fries $7
Fresh, Crispy Hand cut Idaho Potato (Gluten Free)
Chicken Caesar Salad $16
Grilled Chicken, Croutons, Parmigiana Cheese, Creamy Caesar
Tequila , Triple Sec, Line Juice , Strawberries
The breathtaking view, dress code, beautiful people. To see and to be seen.
Absolutely one of my fav hotspots in NYC! Don´t miss it if you´re going to New York!
Miami, FL is one of the most Sexiest Cities in America (as featured at NBC).
The beach, the tourists, the sun and of course the amazing nightlife are responsible for this award!
From Italian restaurants, steakhouses to wine bars, this is definitely a lovely city!
Check out where to go to a have a romantic night out date at the sunny Miami!
Cibo Wine Bar
Absolutely one of my top choices to have a great night in Miami, Cibo Wine Bar is fancy, is sophisticated, since the entrance until the toilette with individual towels. The design, the atmosphere, the wine and the food…home made pastas! Could be any more amazing? The wine! The house wine is about $30 and let you feeling good, with an amazing taste! The place have about 3 ambient, the front part, the second floor and the rooftop. You have to check out the glass wine cellar! This is my actual fav hot spot, to eat, drink and have an amazing night!
This classic steackhouse in Miami Beach, is one of the favorite hot spots for a lot of celebrities as Gisele Bündchen, Bill Clinton, Cameron Diaz, Cristiano Ronaldo (he was on the table behind me!), Anna Wintour (I saw it too… !)and a long long A list.
The place is really crowed and only accepts to dine with a reservation. The menu have a lot of different sizes and cuts of best meats on earth and sides that will make you want to come again. Order the T-Bone with the legendary truffle 5 cheese Mac ´n Cheese side. Romantic, fancy and delicious!
Think on a lunch where you can decide to eat a pasta or a fish or maybe a simple pizza. Imagine a place that is really fancy but with amazing prices and located on one of the most stylist shopping in world. Maybe you didn’t went to Carpaccio, but if you´re doing some shopping at Bal Harbour or just hanging out looking the stores and the stylish people you must have to go lunch on Carpaccio. An adorable place, amazing food and style. I always order the Salmone al Letto, fresh grilled salmon with olive oil, garlic, served in a bed of spinach with roasted potatoes.

How you describe yourself?

What was your first job?
I’m pretty sure I sold my grampa pennies for a dollar
According to Baum + Whiteman, chief consultant of restaurants and international food, which leads every year this research, the major trend will be:
The use of tablets and mobile phones to place orders, updates of your booking, where you are and how much time will come.
Entering in the restaurant and be served by waiters wearing Google Glass with all your profile with your order, your preferences and options fully before chosen by you, that is what they already know what your request, your name and your preferences.
Want to know the menu that will dominate 2015?
Oysters served with cocktails as lemongrass sauce or yuzu or granita.
Celery root, turnip and kohlrabi in puree form, fried, au gratin, stealing potato place as side.
The algae will emerge more and more as a snack and as an “aggregator” of flavor in funds, stocks, sauces and risottos, to give a flavor of the sea tastes.
In high experiences with Mexican or Korean peppers, mixing them with honey, butter and another ingredients. (My favorite trend for sure! #pimentalover)
Salted yogurt! Tomatoes, beets and pumpkin flavours.
Hummus as pasta, sandwiches, mixed with dozens of other ingredients such as beets, peppers, thai chili …. In addition, hummus is rich in protein and fiber and low in fat, so it’s a must have to those who wants healthy options.
The beer drink: Michelada! Based on the beer recipe, lemon juice and peppers.
The punches came in the age of mixology. In NoMad Bar in New York, for example, the punch takes brandy, Combier liqueur, lime juice, brown sugar, syrup, bitters, half a dozen lemons, a handful of mint and lots of ice.
Whiskeys, bourbons, ryes and scotchs are taking the place of vodka consumption leadership, getting more and more in cocktails and also begin to gain by flavoring versions.
In addition to the coffee versions, should include a menu of alcohol (beer and wine glasses) and sides as sausages and cheeses.
Detox juices, with vegetables, with distinct common ingredients, juices goes with everything and will dominate the menu! In addition to delicious, juices are very healthy!
This is the “neurogastronomy” ages: it has to do with how our senses cumulatively react to food and how to manipulate these senses. For example: Diageo discovered that enjoy a single malt in a space with grass and the sound of birds makes its flavor becomes more “green” with taste of herbs and leaves; already in a room with red light and furniture with curves, its taste is sweeter.
The best experience in the single malt tasting was in a place with creaking boards, a fire crackling and bass playing! In an experiment with Ferran Adrià, the professor at the University of Oxford, Charles Spence, demonstrated that a strawberry dessert is 10% sweeter when served on a white plate, compared to a black dish. Nestlé also found that the format of your chocolate affects the experience and taste. Chocolate curved (rather than straight pieces) melt better and release different flavors.
Insects will start to increasingly appear in dishes served in restaurants and even on proteins bars. (I skip this trend, it was actually difficult to find a “nice” and “appetizing” photo to post! Ahahhaa)
And how you think it’s gonna be the gastronomy experience this year?
