Table Talk: Sugarcane

Sugarcane

3250 NE 1st Avenue
Miami, FL 33137
786.369.0353

I’m not gonna lie, when I was first invited to this eatery in Midtown Miami I wasn’t too excited. The fact that it wasn’t in the infamous South Beach caught was a turnoff; but I finally decided to take the trip and surprisingly enjoyed my time away from hectic SoBe.

Table Talk: Pasita

Pasita
47 8th Ave
New York, NY 10014
(212) 255-3900

I cannot believe this cute Venezuelan bistro has been around for three years and I’ve been missing out! I’ve noticed Pasita before, but given the location between Greenwich Village and the Meat Packing District, I was always passing it while searching out the newest hot spot restaurant, which inevitably cost me an arm and a leg.

Table Talk: Latitude Zero

Latitude Zero
82 South 4th Street
Brooklyn, NY 11211
(718) 384-8282

Latitude Zero just celebrated its one year anniversary, so I thought it was perfect timing to check out this South American hot spot out. I brought my two gringa girlfriends in the hopes of sharing something new and exciting with them and to my surprise, I was introduced to a slew of new dishes as well by Chef/ Owner Eduard Polit (formerly from Frederick’s).

Table Talk: Da Conch Shack

Da Conch Shack
Blue Hills Beach
Providenciales, Turks & Caicos Islands
649-946-8877

Last month, I was lucky enough to go to join the Caribbean Tourism Organization for the annual GObeach festival in Turks & Caicos. The islands are gorgeous, and it didn’t hurt that I was surrounded by super cute volleyball players that knew all the good local spots. My favorite was Da Conch Shack, an outdoor eatery with a very low key vibe.

La Lucha
147 Avenue A
NY, NY  10019
212.260.0235

As downtown keeps on getting cooler, more restaurants keep on popping up that won't break the bank.  Lucha Libre, a recently opened real deal taqueria—complete with bright pink walls and Lucha Libre memorabilia like masks and 60's movie ads—brings a little Mexico City to all of us stuck here in New York.
