Paolo’s Three’s Company 

  Rather quickly it seems South Florida is recovering from Hurricane Irma. We are thankful that we fared far better than our friends on the West Coast, including Naples and Tampa and were spared the utter devastation of the Florida Keys. I’m hoping I can return to the Keys sometime soon. In the meantime FPL is doing…

Hurricane French Toast

We’re in the middle of a Hurricane Irma (HurricaneIrma) and with mother nature throwing her worst at Florida and Cuba, we’ve become refugees as we flee to higher ground. During a hurricane you can expect the power to go out, thus routine cooking becomes impossible unless you have a gas stove and the refrigerator will no…

Sake Thai & Sushi Bar

Close to the neighborhood of Emerald Hills in Hollywood, Florida on Sheridan Street, you’ll find the Sake Thai & Sushi Bar. With great appetizers and even better entrees, this restaurant is the one to go to when you and your dinner companions are unsure if you want sushi or Thai food, or better yet – Both! With…

Hemingway Bistro

Hemmingway’s Bistro is one of the most undervalued and underappreciated fine dining restaurants in the Hollywood — Dania Beach Area. I think the patrons actually want to keep it a secret. Inside, you are reminded of a small Italian village. You know, the one you’ve always wanted to visit but somehow never got around to it….

La Huaca Peruvian 

It was just another Wednesday evening and we thought we deserved sushi because you know – Sushi! But our plans were changed when we saw La Huaca on Harrison Street in downtown Hollywood Florida. Perhaps because it is more frequented by tourists, Hollywood boulevard is always busy. Surprisingly many restaurants come and go even with…

Whiskey Tango

Outside of Whiskey Tango Just to the left of I-95, there is a wonderful, if not underutilized street called Hollywood boulevard. It’s a fantastic place to live (I hope), or just walk around and people watch.  There are so many bars and restaurants in the area it would be impossible for me to talk about…

Family Night at DiSalvo’s

Located at Emerald Woods Plaza, DiSalvo’s is a mix of the simple and ordinary that makes for a ‘just right’ experience. They are the classic neighborhood Italian style restaurant. And they indeed are ‘just right’ for this neighborhood.  Going with my ‘family’, which includes my fiancé and our neighbor, our night is to consist of…

Miller’s Ale House

It’s sort of a mystery to me exactly what the Miller’s Ale House (formally known as the Hollywood Ale House) is supposed to be. I would think an “ale house” would feature and promote a wide variety of unique or at least craft beers. Sort of like Tap 42 located in Fort Lauderdale does so very well. But Miller’s…

A night of serenading

A random Saturday evening finds me and my wife to be at Patron Azteca Mexican Restaurant in Hollywood Florida for a romantic dinner for two. Though I often find Mexican food to be a bit heavy, it’s something I can’t resist, and apparently neither can she.  Patron is located at 5181 Sheridan St. Hollywood, FL…
