Palm Beach & Miami for the weekend

No comments

Now that I’ve officially decided to start training for summer – – I allowed for one last “expand my waistline” weekends.  By now it’s a given – – if I’m in Palm Beach, I’m dining at Boulud.  Without apology here’s one of my visits over the weekend for lunch and a photo from dinner.  Sorry no dinner pics, the lighting and cuisine were not a great pairing after dark.

After enjoying Palm Beach I headed to Miami for several days for some fun and to enjoy another amazing meal at one of my favorite spots: Il Gabbiano – – the food is a “WOW” factor!!!!!.
