Bienvenido a Miami!
Just looking at these pictures makes me wistful. Yeah, wistful.
Seriously, though. It's freezing here right now and I'm drooling over the warmth that was Miami last weekend. There wasn't any real purpose for our trip other than to enjoy the weather and a little uninterrupted time together - but really is there any better reason?
Both my boyfriend, Jay, and I hate the term "foodie" - but there are few things we enjoy more than well prepared food and our trips do tend to revolve around fine dining. Though we didn't add any Michelin stars to our inventory, this trip was certainly no exception. We ate. And ate. And ate...
Rosé all day.
Makato and sat outside. I didn't get any good photos because it was dark, but I loved their tiny patio. Sushi is my jammm, and while the sushi at Makato was definitely good, it wasn't divine.
32oz. Wagyu tomahawk for two.Jean George Grill in the St. Regis. The first night we had the ridiculous 32oz. Wagyu tomahawk ribeye for two (the order - as he calls it) with oyster mushrooms and black truffle cheese fritters. Clearly the Wagyu is the star here (and was insanely delicious), but can we talk about the truffle cheese fritters? I die. Dead. Soo good, like little warm balls of heaven.
Aside from eating, picking out clothes for Jay at the shops of Bal Harbour (love), and wine shopping (double love), we spent our days lounging by the pool. I hadn't brought a book since I was working while we were there, so when the wifi was spotty and he was reading, naturally I took selfies. Obsessed with this Vitamin A bikini.
Our last night we dined at Jean George again, but switched up our order. After cocktails we had caviar (crème fraîche, shallots & chive is the way to go) and black truffle pizza. We had intended to have a fat-kid ice cream sundae in our room afterward but they were super busy that weekend and we went into a food coma and fell asleep before it could arrive...
I wish we had had an extra two days there just to relax on the beach and soak up the sun, but alas, a return to reality was required. Fortunately, our anniversary is this month, which means another mini reprieve :)
