Disclosure: This is Food Post!
One of the big reasons I decided to start writing a blog had alot to do with food, restaurants, and going out to eat. Two of the loves of my life, and what I spend the majority of my money on, are good food and fashion, with some travel. Though traveling is more something I save up and wait for, different from food and fashion which has a much quicker satisfaction rate. I do realize that recently I have been neglecting my foodie readers and have been focusing more on fashion and tv, so this is for you. Before this blog started and even more after I started writing, I would always get the same question over and over again from many different people that I know. What is your favorite restaurant in Miami? You have to understand this question is extremely hard for me to answer. There are so many different types of cuisines and settings I like to enjoy, from Indian to Italian, to French to classic American, from indoor intimate romantic seating, to a more hipster young crowd, to outside dinning. My response is mostly always the same, what type of food do you want to eat? Are you going on a date? Or are you going with a crowd of friends? Because I would never send someone on a date to the same restaurant that I would send someone who is planning a fun birthday dinner with 20 of his/her closest friends. I have many favorite restaurants in Miami such as Michi's, Michaels, Imlee, Cafe Vialetto, Nemo's, Pascal's on Ponce, Quattro, to more simple places that never disappoint like Scully's Tavern, New Chinatown, Mykonos, Whisk, and Greenstreet.
I have one restaurant that is probably number one on my all-time favorite restaurant list. It is most definitely a classic and there is not much originality behind it. I’m sure most people in Miami have eaten there and/or heard about it, and its a chain restaurant (which I normally hate, I am NOT a fan of chain restaurants). This place never disappoints and I absolutely love it, just goes to show you can never underestimate the goodness of a classic. This restaurant is Ruth's Chris Steak House in Coral Gables. For many years this has been a restaurant of celebration and happiness for myself and my family. I’ve had many special dinners here and it’s one of the few restaurants my whole family likes and can agree to eat at (some of us are more picky than others, but I wont mention names). There are an abundance of valuable and special memories at Ruth's Chris from a dinner with my mom when her company first started to become successful, to my grandmother’s birthday, my birthdays, and even one Christmas Eve dinner. Let me just mention that I am not a big steak eater; I hardly eat steak, ever. But for those few times a year when I crave a perfectly cooked steak the place I go to is Ruth's Chris.
