33 – New Peruvian Restaurant in Coconut Grove

Tuesday night, I had the honor of being included in a sneak preview of 33, the new Peruvian influenced restaurant in Coconut Grove. Chef Sebastian Fernandez, former food and beverage director of Coral Reef Yacht Club, served up beautiful plates of Causa Limena, Seared Scallops and Ceviche de corvina. Chef’s philosophy centers on incorporating no more than five ingredients in any dish so that […]

Just Listed in Pinecrest – A Devonwood Beauty

My newest listing is a contemporary family home in Devonwood on half an acre that thrills from the moment you walk over a wooden foot bridge through a lush tropical hammock to enter this fabulous abode.  Devonwood, one of the most desirable, safe and private communities in Village of Pinecrest, is known as the Coconut Grove of the Village by virtue of its forest of towering oaks and palms and shimmering landscapes of filtered light. It […]

Pho Long Hy Vong

After 36 years, the final night of pork rolling cakes, calamari salad, best pho in the world, beef and fresh rice noodles and spicy fried chicken was nothing short of delicious delirium.  Despite the Friday early seating, the spirited diners were jubilant to snag a table for the last supper (perhaps).  The eight and ten o’clock diners were no doubt mightily disappointed that the early birds […]

The Dead Return to Haunt The Barnacle

A haunting feast for the eyes, ears and soul…this show is not to be missed.  It’s not exactly the Dead, as in Grateful.  Rather it’s the spirits of fictional characters from historic Coconut Grove who come to life in dance as they jete and pirouette across The Barnacle Historic State Park. Watch as they dance their stories beneath the moonlit sky and […]

Update on Devonwood Sales

Devonwood is a very desirable community in the Village of Pinecrest located off Ludlam Road between 131 St and 136 St.  Many of us call it the Coconut Grove of Pinecrest because the streets and homes are so beautifully shaded by towering oaks, mature trees and lush tropical landscaping. The lovely and prestigious enclave of Devonwood has had only three sales since January of this year.  […]

Honoring Steven at Pinecrest Gardens – The Steven Joel Sotloff Memorial Garden

“Everyone has two lives.  The second one begins when you realize you have only one.” These words were written by Steven Sotloff while in captivity by ISIS.  His family, Shirley, Art and Lauren Sotloff received this letter from Steven six months after he disappeared from the Syrian border without a trace. Smuggled out of Syria, this letter was their first real confirmation that Steven […]
