Who doesn’t love a great steak! As we get older maybe we don’t eat as many steaks as we used to for a variety of reasons, but that doesn’t mean we can’t splurge sometimes.
Recently T & L published an article about the best steak houses in the country. I’ve actually been to several of them but the others are certainly on my to-do list! Everybody has steaks but GREAT steaks are hard to find. Many on the list are iconic places that maybe you have visited or have heard of over the years.
The good news is that a couple of the steakhouses listed are pretty close to where I live. Road trip! xoxo

On a previous blog post I told you about my recent shopping trip to Ft. Lauderdale. It was really fun. Of course the primary activity was shopping but we did go into South Beach one night for dinner. South Beach didn’t disappoint!
Uber picked us up on Thursday for the 45 minute drive into South Beach. We had reservations at 10pm at a restaurant called Villa Azur. Here’s a few photos. It’s a beautiful place.
These are night and day photos, because you see the restaurant serves dinner until early morning. But, when you reserve the table you only have a two-hour reservation and unless you are ordering bottles you have to adhere to that policy (the people at the next table were asked to leave, times up!).
The food was delicious. I had a truffle and brie cream salad for starters and sea bass for my entrée. The sea bass had crushed tomatoes and a tomato vinaigrette. Both were so good. They were almost too pretty to eat!
During dinner they have a DJ that plays a variety of music. Everything from old school hip hop to rap music to AC/DC was playing. It was really fun. It was certainly a party atmosphere. There were lots of good-looking people there.
During the evening I took a selfie (while sitting in my chair) as my back was to the outside. This is what I got, needless to say I didn’t know there were people dancing on the tables behind me!
Later in the evening they gave everybody sparklers. It was really festive. They also had models that walked thru the restaurant. Check this out.
I had a lot of fun. I hope you enjoyed hearing about the trip! xoxox
I love a good burger, who doesn’t! Food and Wine lists the best burgers in the US. Even though you may not be able to visit many of these restaurants listed, you can still use the ideas for your own burgers. Most of the burgers have different types of meat, besides hamburger. Talk to your grocery store and see if you can try something new in your mix. Use a different bun and you go from yum to super yum! xoxo
A dream come true! Tiffany’s flag ship store in New York has opened a café. The Blue Box is definitely on my list of things to do on my next trip to NYC! I might have to schedule a girls trip just to go. All I can say, what took so long? xoxo
