Miami is underrated. Yes a lot of it is pretty trashy but there's also a lot of fun to be had and good food to be eaten. My family has an apartment in Sunny Isles Beach and every time I go there I'm surprised at how much I end up enjoying myself.

I'm in Miami Beach. No trashy here, just beautiful people that make me feel out of place.


go have beers and whiskeys at Mac's club deuce..best dive bar in america..no pretty people there.one of my all time favorite places..he hated to admit it but it was anthony bourdains favorite as well

Have you seen Ramen Heads? Great documentary

never heard of it, but i'll check it out.

where's the best ramen you guys ever had?

Momofuku had amazing texture, but Boxer Ramen in portland had the best broth flavor

Oh i did watch this on the plane BTW. Great doc, makes me want to go on a Japanese Ramen tour. Would totally do this someday.

Olmstead looks like where we like to eat on special occasions here at home. Blanca is a 12 person prix fixe experience. Very pricey, but we've never done anything like that before.

Olmstead's prices are actual on par with Houston. That surprises me for some reason.

Still awaiting your "closer to the date" list. Find us a swivel barstool and some Gordon Lightfoot, please.

Looks like we’re passing on Blanca. The price for the tasting menu is one thing, but tacking on the alcohol pairings, tax and gratuity brings it up to around $350 per person.

Too steep to really enjoy.

I am now looking for more tasting menu options.

reed, enjoy all the hipster grub but don't sleep on the cuban shops, bagel joints, and other sub-$15 meals that NYC is so great at delivering on

Oh, definitely. We'll be there seven days, with reservations for only two of those meals. I plan on the sub $15 gems making up the majority of our experience.

:shock:

Just perusing google maps and randomly found a Brooklyn bar named after a Jerry Jeff lyric. Then another Texas-themed bar. Then a taqueria. Then a German themed bar that would make sense in Shiner or New Braunfels. All within four blocks. Is this...the little Texas district?

I'm worried you are planning too much in the food department. Any other city, it would be fine. But this is NYC. Wander and take it in, enjoy whatever strikes you when you pass by it. If you plan too many places, you'll miss out on any of the hundreds you are likely to pass just walking around
