I actually wore this look on Valentine’s Day and have been anxiously waiting to photograph and post this for you all! I love a little black dress as much as the next gal, but the delicate lace design paired with the pretty pink lace up shoes and leopard clutch just made this look so romantic. This would also be perfect for a night out with the girls!
While nightlife may be the name of this post, I am the last person to come to for advice on where to go out at night. You may not catch me in a club or bar late at night, but, I am a huge restaurant lover and I wanted to share some of my favorite Miami restaurants with you all! All of the restaurants I have listed are fun, romantic, affordable, and sensitive to those who have problems with gluten (like me). I have not even began to touch the ridiculous amount of restaurants this city has to offer, so I would love to hear any suggestions you have in the comments section!
- Yardbird, South Beach
- If you want home-cooked southern cuisine, look no further. What originally drew me to Yardbird was the offer of gluten-free fried chicken (I just about died over the excitement), what kept me there though was all of the amazing dishes they had to offer. I felt like I had been transported to Paula Deen’s living room rather than right off Lincoln Road.
- Cibo Wine Bar, Coral Gables & South Beach
- I have been to both locations and have had incredible experiences at both. I went to the Coral Gables location for a bachelorette party, and would say it is a great place to go with the girls! The South Beach location is gigantic and also very romantic- it’s where we went for Valentine’s Day! It’s also a short walk to the beach which is always fun. If you have gluten troubles, no need to fear, they have gluten free pasta! Be sure to look out for the trapeze woman fetching bottles of wine- unlike anything I’ve ever seen.
- Dolores, but you can call me Lolita, Brickell
- This menu concept is very unique because you get an appetizer with every entree and the cost of your meal depends on the entree you order. They have different price categories based on your preference. The food here is awesome and I love the feel- it’s in a converted fire house.
- Spillover by Lokal, Coconut Grove
- I love anything by Lokal, they can really do no wrong in my eyes. This is their newest in the franchise and it is a seafood restaurant in the heart of Coconut Grove. I opted for the veggie pasta (spaghetti made of vegetables) and was amazing by the amount of cider and mead options available, it’s a super cool concept.
- Whisk, South Miami
- Whisk has my heart. I love this place. It is this tiny little place that is nestled in almost a back alley by Sunset Place in South Miami. The food is amazing and the portions are awesome. I can’t say enough good things about Whisk, really. The chef is really knowledgeable about gluten-free options which was extremely helpful in my case. Everything is farm fresh and you can taste the love being poured into it.
That barely scrapes the surface of some of my tried and true go-to restaurants here in Miami, but I am trying new places all the time and would love to hear where you all love to go!
